Baby Boomers & Strong Views on Enduring Excellence

Baby Boomers are known for holding strong views. . . .and according to current research, that is so especially when it comes to insisting on enduring excellence.

Taking measure. . .maybe that is because at just about the time we were coming of age, the world-at-large was replete with issues that impacted our perspectives and changed the way we see the world, forever. We were not very old when John Kennedy was assassinated…but we were old enough to still take a deep breath each time we think of where we were when we heard the news.

Baby Boomers are known for holding strong views ... (<- poll here)
What is a “strong view”?. . .an opinion closely held and immensely valued?. . .Is it also more? Something we see out of our windows? A bird in flight in the forest? The ocean frothing in the storm? ....the Blue Earth. . . seen at a distance?

Baby Boomers- Enduring Excellence

Again...taking measure. . .Most of us entertain strong opinions colored by feelings or bias. I am passionate about the idea of stewardship, for example. Maybe this passion arose from the amazement of seeing the Blue Earth from Space.

But it seems that it is particularly important in this Our Time of Possibility as powerful Baby Boomers to use our influence for encouraging sustainable innovation in"Smart Communities."

The Power of Baby Boomers Opinions

Could sustainable innovation (as exemplified in the New Urbanism) in some way, be a remedy for what ails humankind.. . .individually and as a collection of living beings on the planet? For the babies to come, I  hope so. .

Hmmmm.... My mom is a bit too old to be a boomer and I... a bit too young and we're two of the most opinioned people I know.  Somehow I don't think it matters so much the year one is born, but the home in which they are raised.

Tonight, my neighbor and I were talking about how great it's been to grow up boomer.  Anyway, it worked for me.
