I gained new knowledge on how to Action Changes. One of my lightbulb moments was learning what a person values and link the action to the value(s).
A personal example:
- Have Solar Panels Installed.
- Expensive short term, inexpensive long term, uses renewable energy, is a drag to get organised but is less wasteful.
- Links with my values of thrift, environment, love (my daughter and her future), respect (for walking the talk), self pride and courage.
Linking it to values gives me personal encouragement to Take Action.
Hope I made some sense. I'm not good a relaying information I have learnt very well.
On a side note; I didn't make or eat my sandwiches today as I was in another area of the city for the workshop. I took left overs from home but since everyone was heading to a local cafe for their lunch I headed there too. I really didn't want to miss out on having extra time with active people who care about the environment and sustainability. My lunch cost me $11.50-AUS. The choice was not frugal however it was worth hanging with a bunch of inspiring people. Also after the sustainability motivation I walked the 40 minutes home :-)
Have you been acting Green lately or been to any interesting workshops?
