I’m not sure how many people who follow this blog did not meet me through Changing Course. If you’re a Club member or on Valerie Young’s newsletter list, you already know about the Outside The Job Box Career Expert and Small Business Idea Consultant Self-Study Course. If you have no idea what I’m talking about, click that link…but maybe wait until you finish reading this post!

I recently took my sons to see The Day The Earth Stood Still. It was during my phase of “closing out 2008,” tying up the loose ends left dangling because we had Christmas celebrations early and were out of town from before Christmas until after New Year’s Day. We had been planning to see the movie over the Christmas holiday from school and were filled with anticipation by the time we saw it in early January. It disappointed me so much I wound up learning a lot.

Since I have friends who read and think about and discuss sustainability in an environmental sense, I’ve started thinking about it in a business model sense. I ask questions about how long a business owner can maintain a business model without harming his or her personal or social environment. This is the idea of psychological sustainability or personal sustainability. A lot of “green” concepts can be applied to lifestyle choices, but be warned. I was certain I had put my laundry in the dryer last night and went to retrieve it this morning. It was sitting in the washer still damp. Turns out I had recycled an old memory of a previous time I dried my clothes!
