“She looketh well to the ways of her household and eateth not the bread of idleness.”
—Proverbs 31:27

Where do you want to live? Are you living there? Where are you surrounded by people you love and trust? Where do you have access to the air, land, food, and water that will nurture you and your family?

A beautiful home gives you energy. This means that it does not drain you of time and resources. Are you a slave to a house that is big and expensive and filled with lots of possessions that take time to maintain? Move out of your field anything that is not beautiful, life- and energy-giving, and useful. We find de-cluttering by yourself hard to do. Team up with friends to help you de-clutter and reorganize one another's home and office. There is a myth that beauty is expensive—that we cannot create beautiful homes within our means. Another myth tries to convince us that beauty in a home has to be complex. Not so. Beauty just takes time and attention—and it is something that we can all have. A home that is in alignment and harmony with the land and environment around you is the most beautiful—and powerful—of all.



  • We deserve a beautiful and safe home.
  • We can create a beautiful and safe home no matter what our circumstances.
  • Our ability to create a beautiful and safe home depends on our ability to understand how we can honor others' ability to do the same.


  • Invite friends to help you with a spring cleaning.
  • As you clean, de-clutter your house.
  • Decorate your house with things made by, or which remind you of, the people you love.
  • Learn feng shui principles and apply them to your home.
  • Identify all the ways that you can lower your energy, utility, and home insurance bills that improve your quality of life.
  • Test your water quality and make sure you have excellent filters if needed.

“I do think it's not asking too much for you to . . . engage those among you who are visionary, and remove from your life those who offer you depression, despair, and disrespect.” 
—Nikki Giovanni

Who are the people in your life, your family, and your community that you love? Are they getting your admiration, time, and energy? Are your time and energy going instead to the people whom you are afraid of, who have power over you, or who demand your attention in negative ways? Do you hunger for association with people who—after you study their work and how they make money—are contributing to the drain on you, your family, and your community?

Take a look at your schedule. Have you planned ahead to make time available for strategic thinking, conversation, and whateever else you need to do so that you can live in alignment with and care for the people you love? Be there for the people whom you would like to be there for you. One of the advantages of forgiving people who have harmed you or done you wrong is that it frees up an enormous amount of time and energy that you can then invest in the people who are doing you right.



  • Giving priority and investing in the people we love and who love us is the most important investment we will ever make.
  • In a healthy culture, men and women build up each other's power and security.
  • In a healthy culture, members of a family think and act opportunistically on each other's behalf.
  • In a healthy culture, members honor those among them who practice their values and lead toward the world they envision.


  • Make a list of the people you love.
  • Pray for them; plan and invest strategically in your relationship with them; be a blessing to one another; remember birthdays and other important dates.
  • Identify the leaders who are building the world you want, particularly in your immediate area and life.
  • Find energizing ways to support them.
  • Withdraw your support from the leaders and the people in your life who are draining you.
  • Save time and energy by practicing forgiveness.

"What's done to the children is done to society."
—The Buddha

Catherine had a friend who was married to a village chief. At meetings, she would ask one person to represent the viewpoint of seven generations yet unborn. To her amazement, this led to significantly improved discussion and decision-making. That’s because children matter. It takes many years to help a child grow up healthy and strong in spirit, mind, and body. Families that help every member to be successful and who are surrounded by communities that support families' being successful are able to grow healthy children. This means that children are well raised and successful whenever each of us enjoys and is committed to supporting the children in our lives and in our community, as well as supporting their parents.



  • Children matter.
  • Raising our children well is our most important investment.
  • Respect for parents and children helps create healthy families and communities.


  • Think about what would make your neighborhood safer and more pleasant for your children and your neighbors' children.
  • See if any of these ideas present an opportunity for the investment of your time or money.
  • Identify the children around you and identify opportunities to support their parents in raising them well.
  • Take time to learn from the children in your lives; have them teach you about what they consider important and interesting.

“Let’s make no mistake about this: The American Dream starts with the neighborhood . . . to sit on the front steps—whether it’s a veranda in a small town or a concrete stoop in a big city—and talk to our neighbors . . ."
—Harvey Milk

A wonderful world is made up of wonderful neighborhoods and communities. Think about what you can do to make yours wonderful, to increase the feeling of connection and belonging, to look out and care for each other. Connect to allies and resources in your community. Which people in your community have the skills and experience in the areas critical to the well-being of you, your family, and your community? What about your local librarians—are they available to help you raise your learning metabolism? What about the organizations dedicated to service and smooth operations in your community: Rotary International, the local Chamber of Commerce, the Farm Bureau, Kiwanis, the Optimist Club, and many more? What local churches, temples, and other religious/spiritual organizations are committed to making your community work? What about other arts, civic, and educational organizations? Rich local community networks are leveraged by wider networks. Identify who your natural allies are in cooperating to build the kind of world you envision. Then take action to get to know them in a way that is mutually energizing.



  • Building a wonderful world happens one neighborhood and one community at a time.
  • In a wonderful world, neighbors look out for each other, and there is a deep sense of belonging and sharing.
  • Safety and well-being come from connectivity with people we can trust because they are ethical, they are effective, and they care about us.
  • Service to our community in the form of volunteering is an opportunity to express our gratitude and give of ourselves.


  • Ask yourself: Are you giving energy to the people in your community and in your wider networks who can help you build the world you envision?
  • Whom would you like to know in your neighborhood? Start making an effort to get to know them.
  • What can you do to make your neighborhood or community more wonderful?

Only after the last tree has been cut,
Only after the last river has been poisoned,
Only after the last fish has been caught,
Only then will you find that money cannot be eaten.
—Cree Indian Prophecy for North America

Catherine once heard a story at an investment conference about psychoanalyst Carl Jung. Apparently, Jung had a patient who came to see him after a nervous breakdown. As a young woman, she had married a wealthy older man and then taken a young lover. To resolve the tension between her desire for wealth and her desire for her lover, she murdered her husband. It seemed that she had gotten away with it, but she reported to Jung that from the time she killed her husband, the birds stopped singing wherever she was. She told Jung, "The birds knew.” Many of us are complicit in enjoying and tolerating a negative return on investment economy. If indeed "the birds know,” then imagine the energy that can be unleashed if we change and individually commit to removing our support from the negative return on investment economy?



  • All life—past, present, and future—matters.
  • All life is potentially available as our ally.
  • All life is a source of energy.


  • Listen to and appreciate all living things. What can they teach you?
  • Identify steps in your life to improve your sustainability with nature. Learn about permaculture, biodynamic farming, or how to live green. Grow more of your own food.
  • Identify steps in your life to increase your (and others') independence from fossil fuel or unclean air, land, food, and water.
  • Fill your home with animal, plants, and natural objects that give you energy.

“Many have marked the speed with which Maud’Dib learned the necessities of Arrakis. The Bene Gesserit, of course, know the basis of this speed. For the others, we can say that Maud’Dib learned rapidly because his first training was in how to learn. And the first lesson of all was the basic trust that he could learn. It is shocking to find how many people do not believe they can learn, and how many more believe learning to be difficult. Maud’Dib knew that every experience carries its lesson.“
—Princess Irulan, in Dune by Frank Herbert

As we manage increasing levels of complexity in our lives due to new technology and globalization, we are also dealing with rising levels of political and economic uncertainty. In this environment, thinking strategically about what we need to know, how to access and acquire that knowledge, and how to build collaborative networks to help us do so, can provide a steady flow of new energy. There is a reason why nations have intelligence agencies and why companies have lifelong learning programs and investigative firms. When you look back through history, how did our ancestors deal with periods of high spiritual and financial stress? What worked? Surely, nothing that we are dealing with today is tougher than what Native Americans, slaves, or immigrants and settlers dealt with during the past 300 years. Some cultures have evolved a high degree of knowledge as well as protocols for surviving great levels of stress. We can identify and learn from those who have this knowledge.



  • We use only a tiny portion of the knowledge and learning capacity available to us.


  • Develop a learning plan for your life: What could you learn that would give you the most energy for achieving your vision?
  • Identify the people who teach you the most: What can you do to give them energy?
  • Identify the people who teach you the least. What can you do to transform that learning and teaching drain? If that is not possible, consider removing yourself from their life.
  • Identify who knows about things that you need help with, particularly in your neighborhood.
