THE COWARDICE OF CYNICISM
It is easy to hide behind sneering at others. To be the one who speaks with venom, blaming, shaming, criticising.
We can feel powerful in our nastiness, in our put-downs and tear-a-parts.
Yet spoken noise without action followed through is mostly an empty use of energy. It might give us a puffed up sense of self for a nanosecond, but little to zero value is offered.
To act towards a better life, a better world for others, greater transparency and symmetry of access and optionality of choice is an act of courage.
Precessionally, in our commitment to action towards something greater than self we will become a person respected. With time, we may even like who we are far better than when we hid behind our cynicism.
Cynicism by its nature squeezes out optionality and our sovereign ability to lead change.

About Dr Christine McDougall
CREATING A WORLD WHERE SYNTROPIC ENTERPRISES ARE UBIQUITOUS. SYNTROPIC = MOVING TO A HIGHER ORDER TOWARDS AN ETERNALLY REGENERATIVE UNIVERSE = LEAVING EARTH AND ALL HER CREATURES IN BETTER SHAPE FOR HAVING EXISTED
As the principal of Syntropic.world – She works with leaders and enterprises globally who have a commitment to being the pioneers of enterprise change. Christine has the ability to completely re-imagine business, its role in our world, and its potential for a future for all humans. She experiences a deeper level of truth than most through applying synergetics (Buckminster Fuller’s anticipatory design science), and has a way of articulating this so others can see it as well. Christine questions the most basic assumptions that drive our complex systems and can map that back to what is needed today. She is committed to the creation of Syntropic enterprises as ubiquitous.
