Why is it that so many of us toil away in jobs we hate, being treated like machines, doing things that will eventually ruin the planet?

Is this really the best we can do with our work and our lives?

Concluding a massive research project spanning the fields of behavioral economics, future trend analysis, and management science, Josh Allan Dykstra elegantly shows how the world of work is evolving — and that the competitive advantage of business is shifting towards something much more life-giving than where we’ve been.

BLUR: Finding Faith in a Fuzzy World

Josh’s first book, Blur, was released in 2007 as a limited edition eBook.

It’s currently out of print (so to speak) and hiding in his digital vaults. Josh has full intentions of doing a few edits and re-releasing it in paper and digital formats after Igniting the Invisible Tribe is published.

  9. […] The way we design our organizations now is based on work that required people to do repetitive, mindless, un-creative tasks.
