” Wer will dass pass away Welt so bleibt, will nicht dass sie bleibt.” was stated by Erich Fried. Translation– If you desire the world to stay as it is, then you do not desire the world to stay at all.
The very first time I stumbled upon this quote was a couple of years back on the Berlin Wall. It is from the 1981 book, Lebenschatten, by German poet, Erich Fried. And while the Berlin Wall was still to stay for another 8 years after the book was released, nearly forty years later on, this quote is entirely appropriate in nearly every circumstance.

The existing individuals in power are frantically attempting to hang on, however even with the danger of COVID, individuals are not scared to require to the streets in uniformity and demonstration for their rights and for the rights of Nature.
And while we await federal governments to lastly get up and take extreme action in order to produce a society in which no-one or no thing is suffering, we can (and need to) likewise seek to company for services.

Business owners resemble superheroes
As business owners, it is our obligation to produce companies that have a favorable effect on the neighborhood and the environment. The existing financial system is built on a profit-first state of mind, in which the thirst for a growing number of cash comes at the expense of individuals’s lives and the health of our whole world.
However as business owners, we have the power to alter that. And while it might look like an exceptionally complicated job to change the existing financial system, which is likewise basically the only financial system we have actually ever understood, it is likewise extremely attainable.
And it starts by looking within. Looking within ourselves to identify our worths and the tradition we wish to leave for the next generations, in addition to within our companies to see where we can do much better, and where we are disappointing operating in accordance with our own worths and what is finest for our world.
The tools and methods to change our own company designs and for that reason the whole system exist, it is simply a matter of in fact recognizing what we require to do and proceeding with investing the time and cash to do it.
This needs a long term view. Believing well beyond what our monetary forecasts are for this year and next, however in fact believing deeply about how our business will search in another years or more … or more.
What kind of world do we imagine that our business will be running in? How will we have added to this world? And what actions can we begin taking today that will move us because instructions?
Changing the economy is extraordinary. The exact same kind of individual has actually controlled company and politics given that these structures originated, with minorities and females being overlooked practically completely. However even if that’s how it’s constantly been done, it does not make it right.
We can see by what is occurring on the planet today, that the time has actually pertained to alter how society functions, in addition to the worth we put on each other, other beings and our shared house.
Totally altering our economy and the basis for how we work can be done. It simply needs the nerve to be various, to voice the requirement for modification and to believe beyond what has actually been done to what is possible and what modifications we wish to see.

We can change business world
That’s why business owners like us are so fit to this huge job. We are by meaning imaginative, visionary and inspired. We see the world in a different way. We are brave sufficient to put ourselves and our concepts out into the world, which suggests we can be the ones to devote to utilizing our companies as a force for great.
With every choice we make in our own companies, we have the opportunity to set the precedent for how company need to be. We can reveal the federal government, society and even other companies who are stuck in the “company as normal paradigm” precisely just how much better off we can all be, if we move far from the profit-at-all-costs design of company.
Recognize what you can do today to produce a more favorable effect for our future. Start little today and build on it. Do not get contented and believe that you have actually “done enough”. There is constantly more to do and there are constantly more chances to enhance your company and how it affects the world.
Now is the time. We should not desire the world to remain as it is. Or it highly likely will not stay for future generations.
