  • Importance of thinking creatively – logic will only get us so far. Focus on long-term thinking – it’s hard to think!

  • Think Grey – as in grey matter (brains) – Edward De Bono Analyse the past, design the future Design seeks value Logic – what is? Design – What could be? Perception- What is the context? Importance of Perception: 5 year old boy in Australia, one dollar and two dollar coin, two dollar is smaller. Given a choice between a one or two dollar to keep, the 5 year old always chose the one dollar coin – why – Perception. See Edward De Bono – ‘Think Before its Too Late’ - page 139 Notes Step 1: Gather data Step 2: Discern the patterns in the data in order to transform into info Step 3: Translate into strategic knowledge that can be used to your competitive advantage – to develop a strategy. The strategic thinker finds strategic knowledge in the complex and chaotic data stream of everyday living. Data and info have no value unless acted upon

  • Every generation needs to answer two questions: What is possible and what is acceptable? Its our watch to protect mankind – like in the Gettysburg address - that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion - 1865 The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us – that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion – that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain -- that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom -- and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth. President Abraham Lincoln

His father, Pōtatau Te Wherowhero, was the leader of the Waikato people. In 1858 Pōtatau was installed as the first Māori King, his purpose being to promote unity among the Māori people in the face of Pākehā encroachment.Pōtatau died in 1860 and was succeeded by Tāwhiao who reigned for thirty-four years during one of the most difficult and discouraging periods of Māori history. During this period there were de jure two governments; English law and governance prevailed within the British settlements and Māori law or custom over the rest of the country. However the Pākehā population was increasing rapidly while the Māori population was either static or declining. This was also the period when the British felt they had a manifest destiny to rule the world. The presence of an independent native state was seen by many as intolerable particularly as it occupied most of the territory of the North Island and thus had the potential to undermine the colonial government's sovereignty.In 1863 on very slim pretexts and in defiance of the Treaty of Waitangi the Colonial Government, backed by some fourteen thousand Imperial troops, invaded the Waikato, King Tāwhiao's territory. The Waikato people put up a strong defence but inevitably were forced to retreat. The conquered land was confiscated, altogether about a million acres (4,000 km²).Tāwhiao and his people moved southwards, into the territory of the Ngāti Maniapoto, the area of New Zealand that is still known as the King Country.

  • It is about composition – By 2058; New Zealand is becoming more diverse. Reduction of 20% in 50 years, with the reduction taken up by Asian, Pacific and Maori in that order. We are getting older. Median age from 36 to 44 years of ag. We are getting bigger. A staggering 63% of New Zealanders are currently overweight or obese Source (graph): Sustainable Future Think Piece 5: Hard Work. Source (data): Statistics NZ (see above Think Piece) But we also have internal changes that we must consider and manage. We have an increasingly culturally diverse society (see Figure 1). Extrapolated out, this means by 2058 we could see a reduction in ‘European and other’ population by 20%, with the reduction being taken up by Asian, Pacific and Maori, in that order. Within this dynamic, we are facing two demographical challenges. Based on the above, we believe New Zealand not only has ‘hard work’ to do, but that the term ‘hard work’ needs to be redefined. As to our location on the evolutionary path, one speaker at the 2008 World Futures Conference discussed the concept that we are entering ‘adolescence’ – with all the trials and tribulations of facing reality. The time when Mother Earth provided abundantly for our inexhaustible wants and needs is now over, and we are learning that it is our time to make hard choices and learn important lessons about our future – which brings me to the point of this Think Piece–the ‘hard work’ ahead. To the rest of the world, New Zealand will increasingly seem to be the bounty in a resource constrained world. New Zealand is a relatively young country, but a relatively old inclusive democracy (New Zealand being amongst the first to adopt Universal Suffrage). We are ‘natural resources’ rich; we have abundant arable land per capita, an extensive coastline, large fishing grounds (EEZ) and territorial sovereignty over an area of Antarctica known as the Ross Sea Region (which is 17 times the size of New Zealand). In short, New Zealand benefits from a small population, and a resource-rich territory. We will further explore our natural resources in a report and Think Piece later this year. To summarise, New Zealand will become increasingly the pearl in the Pacific and the Pacific will increasingly be a sanctuary in a dangerous world. Firstly, we are getting older. Over the next 50 years our population will increase only slightly but we will be living longer, resulting in a significant increase in our median age from 36 to 44 years of age (see Figure 2) Secondly, we are getting bigger. A staggering 63% of New Zealanders are currently overweight or obese (see Figure 3). An unhealthy, aging population is a serious concern, considering that our workforce sits in the top third of the OECD, in terms of average number of hours worked per week.

This is an increase of 144,177 people, or 12.4 percent, since the 2001 Census. Its population ranks 1st in size out of the 16 regions in New Zealand. Auckland Region has 32.4 percent of New Zealand's population. North and South Island population The population of the North Island continues to grow at a faster rate than that of the South Island. An estimated 3,047,900 people lived in the North Island at 30 June 2003, an increase of 56,100 or 1.9 percent from 30 June 2002, while the resident population of the South Island grew by an estimated 14,300 people or 1.5 percent over the same period to reach 961,600 people. These growth differentials led to a further concentration of New Zealand's population in the North Island. At 30 June 2003, the North Island was home to 76.0 percent of New Zealand residents , up from 75.3 percent at 30 June 1996.
