An energetic little story.

“Our real power is not in choosing from items on a limited menu; it is in determining what gets on that menu.” – Annie Leonard, sustainability expert and documentary filmmaker

Remember movie day in school? It was fun and entertaining, even better than having a substitute teacher. Movies were usually shown in science or history class, and you learned in a darkened room how systems worked or the chronology of past events. It was a break from lectures, reviewing homework or being called on.

For an energy break today from your email, proposal writing or project work, sit back and watch the latest short video by Annie Leonard, called “The Story of Change.” It’s an enlightening piece on what it takes to transform knowledge into meaningful action.

If you missed Leonard’s 2007 video, “The Story of Stuff.” I think that’ll energize you, too.
