Ten Years From Now....

Ten years from now will be 2025 for me - I will be 49 and have 23 and 21 year old daughters.

I find I find it very hard to look that far ahead as I try to live in the present moment so that I don't miss what's happening right now. However, on the current trajectory, my dream would be this....

Learning About Social Innovation

One of the innovation tips that stood out to me was...

"What you have matters more than what you lack (If you’ve got a bicycle, consider what you can build based on that, rather than worrying about not having a car, a truck, a metal shop.)"

This is particularly relevant to 1st World Society today considering we are living more and more out of what we don't have, relying on lines of credit and living beyond our means. We are looking to add to societies rather than using…

Women by 2020

I would hope that women I had empowered to pursue and education will have taken full advantage of the opportunity presented and have received an education that will improve their lives and the lives around them. I would hope that some women had gone so far that they were now in positions of authority and were helping multitudes of people with perhaps the same problems we are discussing here on evoke. They are making a great change in the world around them.

public servants

The exchange works directly for state and public workers and servants. It gives them credit in exchange for the amount of public work they contribute to the community. The more constructive they are based off a base rate the more credit they recieve.

Where I will be in ten years.

Ten years from now I will be in a political job assisting with people in the midlands of South Carolina particularly the rural working class and farmers. As the class of people that feed the nation I find that it is imperative that we assist with making sure they produce as much food as possible.
