This series is to stimulate visions of new niches in the local economy. It's addressed to people with businesses and to enterprising people not yet in business.

The Inspiration Economy is NOW

Read master coach Dave Buck's take, published last May just after I experienced his in-person presentation of the topic: http://www.coachblog.com/?p=139

Constructive Work Heals and So Prepares and Distinguishes

"For his different purposes man needs many different structures, both small ones and large ones, some exclusive and some comprehensive. Yet people find it most difficult to keep two seemingly opposite necessities of truth in their minds at the same time. They always tend to clamour for a final solution, as if in actual life there could ever be a final solution other than death.

"Act Or Be Acted Upon"

"The difference between people who exercise initiative and those who don't is literally the difference between night and day. I'm not talking about a 25 to 50 percent difference in effectiveness; I'm talking about a 5000-plus percent difference, particularly if they are smart, aware, and sensitive to others.

"Age" Appropriate Choices

"There is always the movement...." and there are numerous angles from which to observe it. I've noticed that two viewpoints have been visited by many commentators.

Explore, Discover, "Report" and Repeat

MLK Regarding Whole People and Complementarity

"...all life is inter-related. All men are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly affects all indirectly. I can never be what I ought to be until you are what you ought to be, and you can never be what you ought to be until I am what I ought to be. This is the inter-related structure of reality."

Spilling All My Beans

Today I answered a question asked in a separate online community: What is the biggest lesson you have learned in this life? You, too, get to read the answer I gave.

In addition to the declaration, check out the site of the British author of The Transition Handbook. Blogs, links, recommended reading....

Steadily Localize Livelihoods

Our means of livelihood and associated obligations and commitments determine attention, time and energy available for practically everything else we do or would do.

About "the Best"

The best things in life aren't things is a well-known assertion. In that spirit, I assert that the best energy in life doesn't come from fuels, but from our hearts, spirits and well-being. Energies associated with the movement (see 1/6/09) aren't bad, either.

According to Margaret Pounders (not a Woburnite)....

"When exercised with love, imagination creates that which is beneficial to all."

Changing and Managing for Our Benefit

When I wrote about the goal of Woburnite.com (12/23/08), I used the phrase continuous, adaptive development. I've since used the term resilient. I think I should say more about them. I wasn't talking about real estate development.

Wealth Instead of Riches

In Joy to the City, I mentioned that Woburnite.com has a particular concept of wealth. That concept is my focus this time. We hope you will find it worthy of full consideration. We hope you will, as a result, begin to see and get excited about opportunities you hadn't noticed.

Joy to the City (and surrounding area)

It's tempting to write far too much about Woburnite.com in this initial blog because I am extremely happy about its emergence. This is not your father's local business directory, so I could gush like one of the earliest oil wells! Regulating my excitement and resisting temptation, I'll limit my attention this time to the site's stated goal and intentions. They set Woburnite.com apart. In weeks and months to come, I'll have many more chances to expound, cheer, provoke and, perhaps, inspire. I hope you'll want to watch this space.
