Do you lack time for your core task – and to build your source of meaning and purpose?
Denmark has recently held a general election, and now it’s time for the politicians to take action.
My deepfelt wish for the new Parliament and administration is that they will show action, reforms and human responsibility in a commitment to tackling the ‘sick’ structures and endless budget cuts and efficiency campaigns that for far too many years have been contributing to the erosion of meaning, values and purpose – and resulted in a large number of employees, executives and citizens who have simply had enough.
Yes, I’ll admitt it.
I am being quite direct in my statements, perhaps more than usual. I’m thinking that might be okay at this time, in the wake of an election campaign. In the same vein, I have also written a blog post focusing on the current debate about the concept of ‘quiet quitting’ and voicing my call to the newly elected Danish politicians.
On a human level, it is irresponsible for political decision-makers to preserve the current structures, which are virtually designed to erode people’s motivation and sense of meaning – and which lead to inferior service quality.
In my blog post I also suggest what each of us can do, under the current conditions, to maximize meaning and well-being and to work in a way that meets the needs of the individual people we serve.

A special autumn offer to boost your sense of meaning and well-being 🍂🍃
If the blog post inspires you to seek more knowledge and inspiration for your own path to meaning, purpose and well-being, I am currently offering a special autumn discount on my book ‘The Fruit Tree Strategy – about giving while growing’.
For new subscribers to my newsletter, I can tell you that the book has a foreword by Professor Steen Hildebrandt, who is in fact the person who originally encouraged me to write it. It was published in 2002 by Jyllands-Postens Erhvervsforlag and almost seems more relevant today than when it was first released. It is a visionary book about how to navigate meaningfully, with intuition and in a giving way in a coherent universe based on a holistic worldview – while growing. About consciousness and sustainable leadership and followership in tomorrow’s organizations. In May 2016, it was re-released in Danish and English with a new, beautiful graphic design by Pia Darfelt.
Many have asked whether executives are the book’s only target group; my reply is that it is relevant to everyone, as a key topic in the book is how each of us can make meaning in our life, not least by allowing nature and our bodies teach us how to build a sustainable life and culture.
With my best wishes for more meaning, a beautiful autumn and new insights,
many warm regards,
