Competition or Co-operation?

People to go into business to have success, a better lifestyle and hopefully a comfortable retirement.What sort of future are they entering today? Is the future one of competition or is it now that makes the difference?

What is the future of business?

So what is the future of my business?

Most business founders work incredibly hard … often learning new skills they hadn’t thought of before going into business and dealing with change almost every day.

Is there any surprise the majority of businesses fail in the first few years?

Complete this short questionnaire on-line now and find out why this may be happening.

If you are familiar with the Pareto Law, or the 80:20 Law as it is often referred to then you may be in for more than one ‘nasty surprise’ when starting a business. When you understand that 80% of the work goes to 20% of the businesses for instance you can see why some businesses excel and the majority struggle.

It is not unique to business either, but as jobs disappear to automation and robotics faster and faster, humanity is turning to business and entrepreneurship in greater and greater numbers. This can mean an incredibly exciting and rewarding future, or it could it spell disaster and widen the gap between the haves and have-nots further!

Buckminster said that “humanity is transitioning from 150 nations operating independently and remotely from one another in the mid 20th Century to an omni-integrated world family, with all that socioeconomic transition’s conditioned reflex stressings and shockings.”

He also said that our design science’s invisible ability (ie we mostly do not see the technology or its advantaging) to achieve ever more performance for less and less energy and materials, could see a future which, for the first time in history has a bloodless revolution that successfully elevates all humans to a higher standard of living than we have yet experienced.

In simple terms, if we are willing to let go of our fears, and allow the incredible advantaging that technology can provide we can live in peace and cooperation with abundance available to everyone.

If we compete, as we do now and have in the past, we will inevitably have yet again “the same bloody historic pattern of revengeful pulling down of the advantaged few by the disadvantaged many”.

Today you have an opportunity to be part of the “co-operation revolution” and as we focus our attention on how to benefit “you and me” rather than “you or me” we will enter an era of abundance that humanity has never known.

As Buckminster Fuller also said, We are at the point where the integrity of the individual counts and not what the political leadership or the religious leadership says to do.

We should do away with the absolutely spurious notion that everybody has to earn a living. It is a fact today that one in ten thousand of us can make a technological breakthrough capable of supporting all the rest. The youth of today are absolutely right in recognizing this nonsense of earning a living. We keep inventing jobs because of this false idea that everybody has to be employed at some kind of drudgery because, according to Malthusian Darwinian theory he must justify his right to exist. So we have inspectors of inspectors and people making instruments for inspectors to inspect inspectors. The true business of people should be to go back to school and think about whatever it was they were thinking about before somebody came along and told them they had to earn a living. – R Buckminster Fuller

About Alex Sprunt

Twenty years ago I participated in a game that changed my life. Called "The Barnyard Game" it threw groups of intelligent people into fierce competition for the chance to 'access the Ocean of Abundance' and the "Ocean only wants to OUTFLOW ... so come with a spoon, a cup, bucket or pipe it in, the Ocean doesn't care". The game was noisy, loud, had physical barriers and it was played hard. Then all of a sudden a realisation was made that swept through the game in an instant. "There is no need to compete ... the Ocean is abundant and wants everyone to enjoy her abundance." For forty years or more we have been living at a time when everyone on earth could be living the lifestyle of billionaires. Technology and a cooperation revolution makes this available and the way forward is to elevate everyone up above the level of the "1%" rather than try and pull the 1% down to a low level. We are all living in exciting times ...
