CLEAN HEALTH: Go slo-mo

Doing tai chi regularly not only improves your endurance and flexibility but may also help control blood sugar and improve your immune system. The exercise increases levels of certain bacteria-fighting T-cells in your body, research shows.

Clean Earth: Natural Advantages



The business has always profited from nature, creating the conditions for more a comfortable existence by exploiting the earth’s resources. When those resources seemed limitless the process of “taming” nature was acceptable, even necessary, but the conquest is turning into a hollow victory. Now, as Tachi Kiuchi and Bill Shireman write in What We Learned in the Rainforest, the real value of nature must come not from extracting its physical resources, but from the lessons it teaches and that includes learning how it works.

Take a cue from biologist Allan Wilson’s studies of birds: create a learning organization by working together as individuals, not apart in isolated territories. Have a culture that encourages sharing information and new skills both within your own team and across the business.
