Redefining What it Means to Grow

There is nothing still. Life is never still. No plant, no animal no river. Can we think of Nature as a metaphor and keep ourselves constantly evolving? — Anil Gupta

Inspiration of the Day:
“As we all grow in our lives and careers, it’s normal to expect a raise every year. Why? Because it’s a signal of growth. Growing is good — not growing is downright un-American. You didn’t get a raise? You’re not growing? Well then you must be no good. But why only 1 way to measure growth? If I get a 10 percent raise next year but eat less healthy food, spend less time with close and extended community, or do more self-serving work, did I really grow? Just because the number is easy to measure, is that all that matters? What about growing in generosity, compassion, physical health, mental health, family/community, balance/wisdom, and in fun! What if, at the end of every year, we took stock of ALL of these measures, along with financial? Would that change behavior?”
