The New Rules: Strategic Thinking in 10.000 Blog Posts or Less

Posted on Mar 30th, 2010 by Albert : Warrior Albert

I choose this article from my favorite strategy guru Thomas PM Barnett as my last blog post on Instead of saying "Farewell" - some of us will meet again in new places and spaces in new ways- this take
from Thomas summarizes lots of my own experiences from last 7 years. My own amount -taken together entries in yahoo groups, forums and here at Gaia from 2006 -2010 is roughly the same.

However focusing more on systemic view even beyond strategy and as much on inner as outer realties.
As much on personal as on collective shifts.

One dimension is totally undercovered in nearly ALL media , collaboration and change projects:

The felt inner landscapes and spaces of subjective imagination. it was a revelation for me -in my time at Gaia - to discover this potent, dynamic and mighty realms for ANY change. No engeneering approaches,
not even devloped design solutions are suffiicient for me without dedicated, expressive and deep diving into those realities.

Rainer Maria Rilke 2004:

" We must accept our reality as vastly as we possibly can; everything,
even the unprecedented, must be possible within it. This is in the end
the only kind of courage that is required of us: the courage to face
the strangest, most unusual, most inexplicable experiences that can
meet us. The fact that people have in this sense been cowardly has done
infinite harm to life."

This being said:

Farewell, all the best for your life, thanks for all the music:):) and Hello again in new ways and other convening points.

Very best,

in the last half-decade, blogs have gone from a quirky personal sideline activity to a mainstream, almost de rigeur professional activity --
following the previous trajectory of Web sites and, before them, e-mail
itself. To many, this democratization of the flow of information is a
distinct blessing, to others it is the epitome of data deluge. As
someone who has now posted blog entries
every day for six years and recently passed the 10,000-unit mark
(fulfilling Malcolm Gladwell's quota for expert practice), I wanted to
take stock of what this has meant to me as a writer and thinker.

First, some sense of the effort involved.

I am considered a "prolific" blogger in that I've averaged 4-5 posts a
day since March 2004, upping that to more like 7-8 daily posts in the
past couple years (because shorter entries are better). Combined, the
average day's posts come to about 2,500 words, with one-fifth of that
excerpted from mainstream media (MSM) stories and the rest -- 2,000
words or so -- being my own analysis. Across a year, I generate close
to three-quarters of a million words of original material on the blog,
or six times what I average in formal publications such as columns,
articles, and "amortized" books. To use an analogy from running,
blogging is the daily training that prepares me for my "races."
