Did you know that every living creature on Earth has approximately two billion heartbeats to spend in their lifetime (yes, 2,000,000,000)? I never knew that until I came across a wonderful article called Joyas Volardores earlier this week.
Doyle writes so well. He brings science to life. Get this (of heartbeats): "You can spend them slowly, like a tortoise and I've to be two hundred years old, or you can spend them fast, like a hummingbird, and live to be two years old".
This article got me thinking. How will I spend the rest of my two billion heartbeats? This is a very tough question. One part of my answer is that I'm working on my PhD at present, as a step towards my longer term goal of helping organisations realise their potential and make a significant contribution to society. It's not the full story, but it is a start. How will you spend yours?
Thoughts on corporate governance, strategy and effective board practice; our place in the world; and, other things that catch my attention.
