10,000 Reasons To Focus
I wanted to share Steward Brand‘s talk on The Long Now Foundation‘s ambitious project to build a clock that will be able to hold accurate time every single day for the next 10,000 years.
Far from being a mere engineering gimmick, the project entails the design of a unique and memorable experience during the ascent to the mountain cradling the 10,000 year clock.
Needless to say, long-term thinking like this is extremely valuable and inspiring, especially in these times of alleged crisis.
Recession or no recession – this is a great time to be creative and to focus on what’s really important in the long run.
