The Power of WE - The Triple Bottom Line

In honor and support of Blog Action Day, The Educated Emotion will tap into the Power of WE. We, as in the 111 countries that are represented in today's Blog Action Day. We, as in the thousands of bloggers participating today. We, as in the millions of readers. We, as in the billions of people in our own communities that are currently and have the potential to be affected by the Power of We. Over the past five years, we have experienced a global recession as well as recessions in many of our countries, regions, and cities. One of the positives that has come of this rough time is that we are no longer tolerating a single bottom line that does not reflect the social or environmental values of consumers. Our communities, our countries, our worlds have evolved and expanded due to greater exposure and communication, largely in part to social media. Today we discover the Power of...the Power in...WE. Working together to ensure that we are all doing our part to make sure everyone has a chance at a decent quality of life.

I was spreading myself too thin, disorganized, and to be honest...a bit bored/burnt out.
Here we are two years later. With the new addition to the family (shown below), I have less time than ever. So, why in the heck would I decide to rebirth a blog? Good question. There is a lot of research on the increase in inbound traffic f…

Is There Room for Impulse in Business Decision-Making?

If you have a pulse, at some point you have done something on impulse. Recently, tennis player Svetlana Kuznetsova cut her hair during a match before returning and winning the match. I don't know the details surrounding the emergency haircut, but definitely looked like an impulsive decision at its finest.



In art and sports, spontaneity and split-second decison-making are often encouraged. In the business world, not so much. If you are starting a business, own a business, or even work in a business --you probably have plenty of cautionary tales of impulsive decisions gone wrong. The six-figure-earning account executive who got into a fist fight with a co-worker, the business owner who built an expense around money not yet earned, the employee who leaves a passive-ag…
