What Matters Now

Here is a free e-book, What Matters Now, that's making the rounds on the Internet. It's a collection of thoughts under a couple dozen categories. I think it can be best summarized using Apple Computer's ungrammatical slogan: Think Different.

Some of the thoughts are folksy, insightful or thought-provoking. I think there are many triggers here for flash fiction stories.

Here are a few examples:

Timeless:
Simplicity – if you can’t tell your brand story to a 9-year-old it’s no good.

Enough:
If you’re checking for new email every five minutes, that’s 24,000 times a year.

Re-Capitalism:
Marx read his Darwin, but he got it wrong--capitalism doesn't self-destruct, it adapts.

Ripple:
Educate a girl, and you educate her children and generations to follow.
