Mindful : December 2013
20 mindful December 2013 LEADING FROM THE EMERGING FUTURE From Ego-System to Eco-System Economies By Otto Scharmer and Katrin Kaufer • Berrett-Koehler We are tiny droplets in a very big ocean. Yet each of our habits and viewpoints contributes something to the collective makeup of our societies—even the planet. Otto Scharmer is the bestselling author of Theory U, an awareness-based practice that advocates first diving deep before coming back up with new solutions to challenges. Here, his popular theory is applied to our current economic, ecolog- ical, and social conundrums—with many thought-provoking results. THE GENEROSITY NETWORK New Transformational Tools for Successful Fund-Raising By Jennifer McCrea and Jeffrey C. Walker, with Karl Weber • Crown If you’ve ever tried to effect change, you’ve encountered the need to inspire others— and ask them for money. You’re not alone: America’s nonprofit sector comprises 1.8 million organizations. But asking for help has many pitfalls. McCrea, of Har vard’s Hauser Center for Nonprofit Organiza- tions, and Walker, a private equity capital exper t and philanthropist, offer a guide that highlights the power of collaboration and will help you build a net work that can bring about the change you want to see. EAT MOVE SLEEP How Small Choices Lead to Big Changes By Tom Rath • Missionday Tom Rath is not a doctor, a nutritionist, or an exper t on exercise or sleep. But since the age of 16, when he was diagnosed with a rare genetic condition, he has been a patient. In that time he’s been in search of “credible and practical ideas” to help him live a healthier life. Eat Move Sleep is a fine distillation of what he has discov- ered works best. The good news? Small choices change everything. Take it from a guy who isn’t aiming to climb Everest. Rath just wants to get up and have the best day possible—and as many more as possible after that. ● I WONDER By Annaka Harris, illustrated by John Rowe • Four Elephants Press We adults have created a world in which information is quite literally at our finger- tips—evidence, perhaps, of how highly we value “knowing” stuff. So how do children learn to be comfor table with not knowing, not having an answer ? Something bigger is at stake here: the less our children enjoy hanging out in the space bet ween the question and the answer (if there is one), the less they’re likely to exercise their own curiosity and creativity. Children’s books help us inject wonder into our kids’ lives. I Wonder reinforces their ability to do it for themselves. RIGHT NOW Are your thoughts in the past or future? If so, notice when your mind tricks you into thinking you’re really there.
