Joan Halifax: Compassion and the true meaning of empathy
And that should tell you something about the oppression Tibet is expereincing and misinformation you are receiving about Tibet and the rewritten history. If you are being oppressed, which is what many of would consider you are experiencing, by your goverment, I would assume the Tibetans are too. Being told where and when you are to provide and recieve information as an adult is a fomr of oppression.

LIVE CHAT With Damon Horowitz: When have you realized that you were wrong about what you once thought was right? June 8, 2011, 5-6PM EDT
While there are experiences that are unfortunate I do think that there are many, many progresses in the world today. Here we are debating a very important subject. We need to see the ills of our society in order to fix them. So seeing them isn't necessarily a bad thing even if it hurts and is disappointing. Just be sure to look for the hope as well. It's out there.

Reflecting over ones moral beliefs or any belief requires strength. It requires strength to entertain the idea of letting go of a belief or readjusting it. I think at times we identify ourselves too much with our beliefs. We use them as the source of who ME is. But, are my beliefs the essence of me really? If so then I would say we are then a direct product of our environment whether we like it or not. I began to let go of my stringent hold on my belief system when I moved abroad and everything was challenged. I soon decided to not believe in any one cause just because or with blind faith, rather to discern and reflect. Does this really suit me? Does this feel right to me? It is possible to believe without buying the whole package? Yes, I think so. It's not lacking faith it's being reflective and honest to yourself. Why do we insist on you either have to join this or join that. I can join neither completely and still have conviction. Personal reflective conviction. What I want to know however is, why people can't admit they are wrong or have done wrong. Especially when it is plain as day for everyone. I guess you would call it denial. But, how does their head work, do they see it? Do they not see it? Do they see it and then repress it? Is it a protective mechanism? And why do I, when obviously being lied to for no apparent reason, not point it out. Hey you are lying to me. What is it we are afraid of in these situations that we allow being lied to? And why do people lie about the most inane things? This reflection came at an import store. You don't sell flour because you don't want to. Don't give me a ten minute lecture about customs poking holes etc. I know you are lying you know you are lying, but to what purpose and why are you even compelled?

Dan Pink: The puzzle of motivation
There have been studies made about which population is the most effective in the world. USA and Japan despite their long hours at the office and company dedication scored VERY, VERY poorly. More hours doesn't mean better effectiveness. These long hours etc. It's for show. You ask an American they are going to first put in 80 hours this week. Then your going to have to ask what did you accomplish in those 80 hours? x. y. Badge of honor. Getting reprimanded for being too efficient isn't uncommon. Sleep deprivation, poor home life, no space for personal expression makes for a less effective human being. I find it funny that people seem to bring up the same issue well what about nurses or bus drivers or.... He said very clearly that this applies to certain fields not all. Also he only had 20 mins. So sure he didn't get to elaborate on the entire issue in detail. I am sure if you do a bit of searching you will find he has a more thorough argument out there somewher

Dan Pink: The puzzle of motivation
I don't think there are a lot of people in Sweden aspiring to be janitors. Not sure where you got that idea from. Sweden has a very high percent of University educated. And no janitors here don't get to make their own hours. But if you get a janitor job here you get paid a living wage unlike the US. PEOPLE you seem to be missing the point Dan made because you just want to. MECHANICAL jobs don't apply in this model! Hearing what you want to hear and sticking to an idea because it's comfortable. And that is how we always did it. If that were a good thing we would still be working in poorly lit factories for 18 hours a day for pennies.

Dan Pink: The puzzle of motivation
Dan you really missed a point he did verbalize. That for the jobs that are task oriented, without the need of cognitive thinking i.e. factory type jobs, the current way of running business still applies. We are leaving the industrial age. So if your still working at McD's don't worry the money incentive will still work. However, many jobs now require that one is free to think and explore solutions which requires another type of environment. I am a photographer. My ideas on how to solve visual solutions don't come to me in the office or in front of my computer, but as I am walking through my day when I allow my brain to relax. The same applies to graphic designers, creative writers etc. What makes the truly successful people in these branches isn't just their ability to deliver, but to deliver something unique on a regular basis. This applies to many different fields. We need to recognize this in our business practices. Also some personalities need different environments to excel.
