It is interesting to note that the earliest cited use of the word business in the Oxford Dictionary is in the year 950. It carried the meanings "anxiety, solicitude, care; distress, uneasiness." Look it up for some real insight.

Tracing the word to its roots sheds light on where we are today. Let's explore late 20th century combinations of words like "sustainable business" and follow what happens when we create a new vocabulary and new standards based on a big picture of interconnection.

What are the obstacles in our way? Who is doing it well?

Let's imagine and practice livelihood that goes beyond business as usual.
