Basic Needs?

I happened to be watching a documentary recently about the Great Barrier Reef. The music was so soothing, and the voice-over artist so mellow in her delivery, that I found myself reflecting deeply on a phrase casually spoken.

The comment was that creatures in the Reef have three main needs: “to eat, not to be eaten and reproduction.”

I don’t think we are too different:

  1. To eat: Sustenance, Well-being and Continuous Growth

  2. Not to be eaten: Competitiveness, Forethought and good Service

  3. Reproduction: Sustainability, through Valuable Contributions and Seized Opportunities

We would do well to ask how we are doing with regard to these, both personally and professionally.
