Sparklemn This looks interesting. I think about this often -- what would happen if we all stopped buying things we don't need? Who would benefit and who would suffer? 2w
Vivlio_Gnosi Then this book is for you. The author dives into the nuance of what would change, how soon, who is affected, and many other scenarios. @Sparklemn 2w
Sparklemn I'm in! Thanks for the recommendation. 😀 2w
Vivlio_Gnosi @Sparklemn you're welcome! The author really does well to explore the good, the bad, and the "huh, I hadn't thought of that before" of consumerism ending. He also includes several solid case studies. 2w

⭐️⭐️⭐️
While written primarily for sales teams, this book does a good job describing how to share your idea, pitch, or decision with anyone in a convincing manner.

A solid book connecting a much deeper meaning to your vocation.
I felt a few points were a bit of a stretch.
Overall it provides a spiritual purpose behind jobs, careers, and callings.

"What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants. It is it‘s natural manure.... Jefferson acknowledged he was being hyperbolic. The want of facts worth communicating to you has occasioned me to give a little loose to dissertation. We must be contented to amuse when we cannot inform."

Morris provides context to the adage that's most commonly associated with Roosevelt, speak softly and carry a big stick.

"Public image, once registered, is almost impossible to rephotograph: later exposures only darken the underlying silhouette."

quote

Theodore Rex | Edmund Morris

"If a man continually blusters, if he lacks civility, a big stick will not save him from his trouble; but neither will speaking softly avail, if back of the softness there does not lie strength, power."
