Letter from the founder

Dear Genius Citizens,

It is my sincere and earnest hope that every one of us reading this letter lives to acquire happiness in fulfilling our individual purposes and missions in life as well as, find, explore, and develop, seminal designs that improve the lives and lifestyles of people the world over.

The Work of Genius Citizens is to establish and entrench themselves as a positive, creative, dynamic, and innovative force in a global community of people, and, by appreciating the extent to which knowledge, information, communication, and organization, are playing vital roles of increasing importance in the quality of life that we experience on this planet, we are devotionally and perennially engaged in mastering subjects, honing and developing skill sets, solving problems, and enhancing life's experiences.

Who will thrive, let alone survive in this new world order?  I say it is us...The Genius Citizens!  (Founder)

Clearly, it is an undeniable reality that we live in an era of rapid change, owed in part to the perfecting of technological innovation and it's inherent transformation of societal structures; giving rise to a massive shift in paradigm.  Who will thrive, let alone survive in this new world order?  I say it is us...The Genius Citizens!  (Founder)

Here are some notes from a conversation between myself and a co-founder, Corey Johnson.



Fifth discipline....deliberate practice and deep practice...craftsmanship...performance evolution...buddhism...ten thousand hours...important to look at..specifically...the ecstatic process...personal mastery...performance enhancement....a system of auditing...always deep practice...no wasted practice..potent and deep practice...a worthy strategic goal...always...potent...meaningful...always potent...highly substantive....these are things that should be audited...the pursuit of happiness in everything...finance, eating, etc...when it isn't that you won't except it Andy at is how you raiser quality of life.  Why GDP doesn't as up steiligz...amartya sen..John Paul Fipouss...the commission of economic performance and progress...single metric versus dashboard approach...GDP and GNP market based and public...the case for revising the GDP...the poor, the environment, lifestyle...gross national happiness, happiness index...Practice on improving humanity on. Daily basis...making sure it resonates daily!  

You can't talk about power without sourcing...you can't talk about happiness without discussing flow...strategically actively pursue these metrics.  With mental models create a dashboard...strategic dashboard for broad goals...people talk about zeitgeist...don't want to live in a bubble!  Dr. Doesn't improve your skill set. The ultimate degree.  The best student, not the best teacher...getting the right vocabulary to transmit and transmute...sourcing is the gateway of power...you have to deal with resources...Henry Kissinger!!!  When you control oil, you control nations.  When you control food, you control people.  Urban Garden Magazine.  Genetically modified agenda.  The big five.  USA, Canada, argentina, china, brazil!   Ecstatic process involves meditation and transformation.  Sourcing and creating jobs.  Be careful of how you speak about things...clarity needed.  The whole point of strategy is to be able to govern.  Properly select self.
