“In today’s world we are grappling at every turn with an increasing energy shortage, food production systems that struggle to feed increasing millions, environmental problems that threaten our survival, a debt crisis that is crippling individuals and governments, and so much more. All of these problems come with their own unique challenges and examined on their own they may seem completely different from each other, but they share one common, rarely discussed hidden thread that runs through the center of each and binds them together: a lack of long-term thinking. We’re very bad long-term thinkers.”
Jim Brumm’s Long-Term Thinking for a Short-Sighted World focuses on the problems we face today that share a common, rarely discussed theme: a lack of long-term thinking. The book explores examples—past and present—of humanity pursuing short-term gains at the expense of our long-term well being. Topics include energy, debt, consumerism, agriculture and our skewed perceptions of time.
Jim delivers a message of hope, helping to answer the question, “How can I live my life in a way that brings satisfaction, balance, happiness, and a sense of value? In other words, how can I be part of the solution?” He suggests positive ways to improve our ability to embrace a larger vision of our place in the world.
Conversational, provocative, witty and often laugh-out-loud funny, Long-Term Thinking for a Short-Sighted World will inspire readers who are seeking ways to realign priorities and re-examine what brings true, long-term happiness and sustainability.
We’d like you to buy Jim Brumm’s e-book directly from us…but you don’t have to
Jim gets more money from the sale when you buy his e-book from us. Substantially more. But we also understand that you might want your purchase to appear on your Kindle, Nook, or iPad without having to transfer files. That’s okay. We just want you to read the book. And it’s the exact same book, whether you buy it from us or not: the same DRM-free content, for the same price (unless you have a Muse Harbor coupon, in which case it’ll be cheaper. Shhh! Don’t tell the others). The only difference is that when you buy the e-book from Muse Harbor Publishing, more of the purchase price goes to Jim, so that he can continue writing, and you can have more Muse Harbor books to read.
