on July 17, 2018 in Podcast

Does sacrificing something you love mean a worse life? Balint shares his enthusiasm to experiment and find new recipes, tastes and experiences—I would say not despite but because of his choice to act on his values. What you value is better for you.. In his words: The world is more colorful. His experience shows the difference to your life between talking about acting and acting (not to mention that talking[…] Keep reading →

Technology won’t solve environmental issues and you know it

on July 13, 2018 in Leadership, Models, Nature, Podcast

EDIT: I recorded a podcast version of this post (episode 63) that covered same views beyond this post: If anything marked the beginning of the industrial revolution, it was James Watt’s steam engine. It wasn’t the first steam engine, but was more efficient than any before. More efficient means using less energy and less pollution, right? Wrong. Each engine, yes, but more people used engines, so Watt engines used more[…] Keep reading →

062: Business and systemic change: Michael Lenox, part 2

on July 12, 2018 in Podcast

Michael’s book tour was taking him to China, up and down the U.S. east coast, and across the country, but he kept at his commitment. Tell me if you don’t hear him smiling in talking about it. He said it was easy, but many people considering the same action put it off. His book covers systemic change, focusing on the role of business. I find that his personal action brings[…] Keep reading →

061: The Rainforest Alliance, United Nations, and NYU-Stern: Tensie Whelan

on July 11, 2018 in Podcast

Tensie is helping unravel my preconceived notions of academics focusing more on facts than action. Maybe because she was President of the Rainforest Alliance. Maybe because I met her when she brought the U.N. Secretary General to NYU. You’ll hear other global organizations and people she’s influenced, led, and collaborated with in a remarkable and effective career so far. She brings a new perspective on leading organizations to this podcast,[…] Keep reading →

060: Consistent change creates big improvements; Robbie Samuels, Part 2

on July 10, 2018 in Podcast

Right off the bat you can hear my joy to hear how composting has changed Robbie’s life. I used to see composting as an odd thing that I probably should do but didn’t know how so didn’t. I think most people see it that way, especially if they don’t have gardens. In this episode Robbie shares about composting and giving slop for pig feed. He talks about how he loves[…] Keep reading →

059: The domino effect of creating change; Balint Horvath, part 2 (transcript)

on July 6, 2018 in Podcast

A three–month transition from something he did daily to something he targets doing once a month feels pretty big to me and he shares thoughtfully and in-depth how his transition went. So if you’re thinking about doing one or you’re doing one, I recommend listening to how it goes for him because I think it’ll help you feel not alone, that you’ll feel like part of a team. You’ll also[…] Keep reading →

059: The domino effect of creating change; Balint Horvath, part 2

on July 6, 2018 in Podcast

Balint took on one of the bigger challenges on this podcast—one that nearly everyone knows the value of, many mean to do, but few do. He cut his beef intake from almost daily to once a month. How did he do it? How did his body react? His relationships? His health? Would he do it again? He shares how he became more aware of the different forms of protein and[…] Keep reading →
