These options suggest themselves to me:
- Grow Enterprise GreenWorks. Next step: publish launch article. Create Art of the Start (Kawasaki) plan and pitch
- Recreate a faculty of business so that industrial ecology is the key leitmotiv driving its recreation. Begin application for a Dean’s position. Consult with prospective mentor. Next step: use Mann’s book as the Bible for the strategy. Tidy up my online presence.
- Create a resource ‘bible’ (book, library) for teachers of applied industrial ecology that compliments/applies the experience of Samuel Mann especially for the teaching of business, innovation, and entrepreneurship.
- Re-blog to trumblr previous references my students and I have made to Kekule’s dream - DONE!
- Post Peter Senge’s industrial metabolism model on tumblr, and my wall.
- Book review Mann’s book, from the perspective of the above smorgasbord of options.
- Take a walk whilst this warm winter’s day continues (a sunny 19 C here in Waitakere, New Zealand - and it’s nearly mid-winter! Roll on global warming!!!! :)
- Finish and send draft request to my mentor
- Get ready to FOCUS!
