381: Kevin Edwards Cahill, part 1: The Deming Legacy

Kevin Cahill’s grandfather, W. Edwards Deming, changed nations. An emperor awarded him a medal. If you don’t know either, listen to the first few minutes when I describe him. Deming has become one of my top role models.

He transformed nations in a few years—the time scale that climate scientists say we have, not that climate is our only problem. He shows what one person can do—the opposite of what everyone who doesn’t act justifies their inaction with: “What one person does doesn’t matter.”

W. Edwards Deming saw and acted on systems, what many people talk about but not many get. This episode will illuminate them and, I hope, give hope and direction for what we can do.
