Well, here we are together, just a few days before the end of 2014. It’s a cliché, but how did the year go by so fast?
While this past year was a great year for my wife and I, and I hope it was for you too, for many people 2014 was an incredibly challenging and difficult year.
As a race we face many global problems and as a country we are currently struggling through one of the most divisive and divided eras in our history. These are big problems, very BIG. I do not know how to solve them but I do know this…
“We can’t solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them.” – Albert Einstein
And I also know that WE have to solve them, we have gotten ourselves into this mess and we will have to get ourselves out of it. There is no magic wand, it is going to take a lot of hard work, tough decisions and sacrifice from everyone around the world – and that includes you and me!
So to help you look at things in a in a new way for 2015 here is a video with the highlights of some of the top TED Talks of 2014. I encourage you to watch this clip and then go watch any or all of the full videos, it is sure to shake up your thinking, which is the best gift I can give you as we head into the new year together. After all, it is up to us, WE have to drive the change we want to see in the world. A tall order indeed, but one we must all rise to embrace.
I wish you every possible happiness and success. Love, John
