If I realize that I am not special, I stop seeing the world with me at the center. Instead, I see myself along with 7.125 billion others orbiting the sun together.

As our economies increasingly move from production and service economies to creative economies, the outdated metrics we use are failing to capture the true value of what is being created. Thus, they do not reflect what a culture truly wants.
