Save the World & Still Be Home for Dinner: How to Create a Future of Sustainable Abundance for All (Capital Cares) by Will Marre



In Save the World, Will Marre again inspires us to discover the greatest unrealized possibility of our time: trusting ourselves to live the life of our dreams. An eye-opening must read. Will Marre combines the remarkable talent of a world-class idea generator, with the pragmatism of a world-class implementer. You will be energized into action. This book is an action plan for learning how to know who you are, what your promise is and how to use what you learn to create a sustainable life for yourself and for everyone on this planet. This is no warm and fuzzy feel good book.

Overall, I think the book could have been about 100 pages shorter, but it was a great read and I definitely recommend it to anyone who is struggling with finding their true meaning in life. This book will not give you the exact answer, but it will provide a map for you to discover what your Promise is to the world. Dec 12, 2013 Eric rated it liked it. Some interesting theories about finding your place in life (the Big Promise)

As featured on Forbes. com - A visionary business coach shows how to rethink our strategies and get started with making our lives count and the world a better place. For many, the current economic crisis has clearly demonstrated that Big Business and too much me have almost destroyed our world. But visionary business coach Will Marre steps in to show us how to be leaders of meaningful lives and a better world.

How did you come to this idea? RIFKIN: In the early 2000s, I was teaching in the advanced management program (AMP) at Wharton Executive Education. The intelligent value chain would be continually learning how to create, use, upgrade, recycle, and reuse physical goods at an ever lower cost. We’ll have an economy of partial abundance, full of many nearly free products and services provided at near-zero marginal cost. Even in a world of abundance, climate change is the dark shadow that could foreclose opportunities for present and future generations and for life itself on Earth.

The world’s largest oil company, Saudi Aramco, requested a demo in the Kingdom. How much would they consider investing if they like what they see? Often, the people that ask the most questions and require the largest amount of time are the people who invest the least. How can you get them to actually write a check? Create a sense of urgency. One good way to do this is with deadlines. Once you have a critical mass expressing interest (maybe around 50% of what you need to fill your financing or for first closing) then set a first closing date and a second closing date.

From turning waste into energy to charging consumers for the food they throw in the bin, Oliver Balch explores how our attitudes to rubbish are set to change. Retailer responsibility. Responsibility for consumer-related recycling shouldn’t fall entirely on consumer shoulders. Retailers that sell unrecyclable packaging should also make a change, argues Conrad MacKerron, director of the corporate social responsibility programme at the As You Sow Foundation

You must know how you will be competitive and how you will create the required conditions to be part of a sustainable society. I know manufacturers of white goods and consumer electronics who are wrestling with how to execute a leasing business model in a sustainable way. They are finding that Radio Rentals disappeared from our high streets for a reason. Making it work commercially is not straight forward – especially when you want to execute that leasing model in the most sustainable way possible. Our aim is to ignite an energy revolution which places communities at its heart and strives for a clean, affordable and secure energy system for all. We are achieving this by helping communities across the UK to own, generate and save energy together.

** As featured on Forbes.com -- A visionary business coach shows how to rethink our strategies and get started with making our lives count … and the world a better place. **For many, the current economic crisis has clearly demonstrated that “Big Business” and too much “me” have almost destroyed our world. But visionary business coach Will Marré steps in to show us how to be leaders of meaningful lives and a better world. By joining Will’s trailblazing approach to civic activism through self-knowledge, you’ll learn how to become an engine of change and be inspired to … * Rethink where you are in your life plan * Focus on what really matters to you––your Promise * Get off the starting line and race with like-minded individuals to make a difference—big or small. Will shows us the power of individuals and corporations, like …* Chris who, surprised by his own compassion, decided on the spot to pay for the college education of one of the Lost Boys of Sudan and later helped him build a school in Southern Sudan. * Martin, a global executive of a multi-billion dollar company, who re-invented himself as a revolutionary leader of environmental sustainability throughout North and South America––turning his knowledge of business into a force for change. * Kim, who saved her money-losing chain of technical schools by enlisting the help of every employee and transformed the company into a powerhouse of 21st century skill training within eighteen months––without a single lay-off. * Kate, who used the grief and wisdom of losing her mother to cancer to found a groundbreaking charity to help grieving children when she was only 27. * Mike, who leapfrogged from a surf-ski bum into a leading creator of sustainable footwear for an international company.In tumultuous times, for readers who are not ready to give up, and are ready to take responsibility for driving the future, Save the World & Still Be Home for Dinner is a beacon of hope and a model for civic activism and corporate social responsibility.

I never asked myself, "What Is My Promise". In fact I never really thought about My Promise until I read this masterpiece of applied philosophy for today by Will Marre. Will writes that "We cannot know what our true Promise is until we know Who We Are."

This book is an action plan for learning how to know who you are, what your promise is and how to use what you learn to create a sustainable life for yourself and for everyone on this planet.

From understanding how we are all on the grid, all the time, how we work for the money in order to stay on the grid and how so much of what we do has no sustainable value, Will Marre takes each reader through his or her own unique life, its unique value and teaches how we can make a huge difference in the world.

This is no warm and fuzzy feel good book. This book is vital to everyone who wants to create a sustainable life that counts.

Will Marre is the applied philosopher of this new century.

I read books for my work and for clients literally every week. I read business and leadership books, metaphysical books, and non-fiction inspirational stories to name a few. I read this book over a few days and then read it again. Will Marre has a specific point of view and he is unequivocal when sharing it. Many times I find authors who try to cover all the bases, not offend anyone, say something that anyone can agree with and just help people feel good for the time they are reading the book. This book is a no apology call to action that reaches across social distinctions, gender, ethnicity, race, religion and all manner of identity and expression. No matter who you are, what you believe or what you do you will find something here that will touch your heart, change your mind and move you to show up as more of you. Thank you Will! I am finding as many ways as possible to share this idea with clients and friends.

There are so many books out there about the "green revolution" or about personal growth or achieving life balance, but none of them are like Will Marre's "Save the World and Still Be Home for Dinner." This book stands alone. It doesn't conveniently fit into any category, which is one of the things I love about it. It speaks to me and my role as a businessman, a husband, a father, a son, a friend, and as an individual who passionately wants to make a positive impact on the world around him. And not just in one dimension. It is truly refreshing to have so much valuable information and inspiration woven into one neat little package. I'd recommend this book to anyone who is seeking to make sense of this chaotic world in which we live and make their unique contribution right where they stand. Today, not tomorrow. The stories in Will's book are infectious and inspirational. Will does a superb job weaving them together with advice, tools, and new thinking that will no doubt inspire all who read it to do their part in saving the future for generations to come. That's a big claim, I know. But read it for yourself or go to one of his websites. He's the real deal. This is the right book for the right time. (I personally know what a lot of people are getting for Christmas this year!) Thank you, Will!

Will Marre must be psychic. Save the World and Still Be Home for Dinner spoke to both the inner and outer me. This book is perfectly timed for those, like me who are considering important life changes. Save the World gave me a clearer voice about my leadership, my personal and social responsibilities, and what it is that I want for myself and my life. I appreciate that Will did not shy away from the intra-personal and spiritual search. After all if I am not clear about my promise to self, my efforts in my world are less than authentic. Read this book along with Marre's blog.

"Save the World and Still Be Home for Dinner" is a remarkable book from Will Marre. Marre, who teaches at UC San Diego Extension, asks readers to stand up for something that really matters to them, to make their unique contribution to a sustainable future and add value to the lives of others. Marre can sometimes be spotted on campus in a tee shirt that reads "Will Work For Meaning." He advocates a future with sustainable abundance for all and it is this choice, he contends, that could be the most important choice in human history. Marre is an Emmy Award-winning writer, speaker and expert on leadership strategies and social responsibility. This book will change how you think about change.
