Doughnut economics

Kate Raworth highlights her vision of what doughnut economics is and how we meet the needs of the people within the capability or means of our planet. Her doughnut metaphor is a serious depiction of how social and planetary boundaries need to work in harmony and particularly provides a compass or measure of how we should live sustainably in the 21st Century and beyond.

Innovation is the culture of asking the right questions. 

The 8 principals of successful optimists:

  1. Unashamed optimism of ambition about the future
  2. Engage in projects that are bigger than you are.  Find something more important than you are and dedicate your life to that
  3. You are what you do.  Not what you intend to do
  4. Making mistakes is OK.  Not trying is irresponsible
  5. Engineer serendipity (smash yourself constantly with new ideas).  Maybe have a serendipity fund at work where we do things that we don’t necessarily think we will enjoy – but we might just learn something?
  6. Think like an engineer not like a politician
  7. Play the long game (aka ‘lose a lot’)
  8. Police your own cynicism.  Don’t be cynical (Dresses up laziness as wisdom)
