The Overview Effect: How Things Change Forever

The first picture of Earth, from space, was a pivotal moment in mankind’s journey of self-awareness.

This is a great little video that talks about:

“an experience that transforms astronauts’ perspective of the planet and mankind’s place upon it. Common features of the experience are a feeling of awe for the planet, a profound understanding of the interconnection of all life, and a renewed sense of responsibility for taking care of the environment.”

In some meagre way, I feel the social business journey does the same thing. When work is not about me; team; company – but instead an embrace of the complexity of people, networks, (eco)systems, thoughts, ideas, movements – then I get the overview effect, for sure.
