Right now, the United States is facing one of its most challenging time in its entire history.
Many are already writing about “What Obama Should Do.”
There’s definitely a lot.
I think the best way to start is to apply the 80-20 rule, which says that 80% of the effects come from 20% of the the total causes.
Identify which of the 20% of the causes of our nation’s problems is responsible for 80% of the bad effects.
Then fix those 20%, which will then resolve the majority of our problems.
What is in that 20%?
I believe that at least one of those 20% is how the US deals with The Food Issue.
Here is an amazing presentation regarding the food issue in Japan (which is similar to the situation we face in the US). I am very impressed by it as it manages to be succinct, entertaining and describes the problem and solution so well:
Warning: This entry is a very LONG essay on management. I know not everyone is interested.
Its been a long 2 year campaign to finally elect Barack Obama but he succeeded and many attribute this to how he managed his campaign. Despite what everyone sees as a lack of experience, I think he showed management skills better than Hillary Clinton did. Hopefully this skills should translate into being a great President (I hope). Newsweek wrote a long story about the details of every campaign and from it I took out parts where Obama showed where his management skills trounced Hillary’s.
