  • Tao Te Ching - Lao Tzu, 6th century BC Thirty spokes share the wheel’s hub; It is the center hole that makes it useful. Shape clay into a vessel; It is the space within that makes it useful. Cut doors and windows for a room; It is the holes which make it useful. Therefore profit comes from what is there; Usefulness from what is not there.

  • What is Wellness?
  • definition of wellness" WELLNESS is an umbrella descriptor for programs, policies and initiatives that promote health, prevent certain diseases and compress morbidity (shorten length of illness). Wellness is also an objective and subjective incremental state of well-being with infinite variations. - The Health & Wellness Institute !"
  • Ten Fundamental Understandings 1.  Change is a linear and sequential process. intellectual emotional visceral cellular
  • Ten Fundamental Understandings 1.  Change is a linear and sequential process. 2.  The incumbent has the power. 3.  People run from pain faster than they run toward pleasure. 4.  There is no power stronger than self-fulfilling prophesy. 5.  What you learned in Kindergarten is not enough.
  • Ten Fundamental Understandings 6.  Beware, the law of assimilation. 7.  What you don’t know can hurt you! 8.  It is critical that you secure your own mask before assisting others. 9.  Without innovation, you are simply living a memory. 10.  “He not busy being born is busy dying.” - Bob Dylan
  • Healthcare vs. Sickcare
  • Healthcare vs. Sickcare: Time to Level Set 1.  Nothing and Nobody will Lower your Healthcare Costs. 2.  Death is not a Curable Disease. 3.  “Wellness” is an amorphous, dangerous & distracting term. 4.  The issues of concern are health promotion, disease PREVENTION, compressed morbidity, increased productivity and medical cost control. 5.  Ultimately, organization measure success by mission and margin. Individuals (employees) measure success in terms of subjective well-being.
  • Healthcare vs. Sickcare: Time to Level Set 6.  There is no political will to change healthcare: The question is not HOW do we improve health? The question is WHY don’t we care? One answer is science, the other is art. 7.  If “greed” is good…”sickness” is better. 8.  Pogo was right… 9.  Healthcare spend & focus needs to shift from disease management (survival) to primary prevention (thrival). 10.  It is arrogant and presumptuous to suggest that a list has independent value.
