Adjusting to Living Within Our Means - a Family Declaration of Independence

Careers are changing with the changing economy. Local, sustainable, basic, downscaling transportation -- these are some of the features of the careers of the next decade.

Independence is difficult to think about because we are such a collective society. But during economic downturns, people who lose their job, or their career, or their home must face the reality -- and come up with alternatives.

Come to think of it, those who keep their jobs are feeling some of the pressure, as well. Friends and loved ones are out of work and depending on their safety net. Fear of what might be around the bend builds stress and makes established careers seem less assured. Thinking about independence, about local living, about taking care of the basics of life is good practice for EVERY family leader.

This interview from Peak Moment is with authors who have researched the stress that is growing and rampant in our neighborhoods -- and about options for the "gap" that is gripping our nation. It will give you some ideas about how to make not only your own family more stable and rewarding, but your future.

Regular reflection on how hot that pot of water is getting (remember the frog of complacency?) is a good exercise. And it helps to have some positive best practices to consider.

We hope you share this video with friends and families... and neighbors as you brainstorm what your local resources are that have been overlooked in the hubbub of the growth economy. Growth won't continue at the mad pace of the past 30 years ... and the future is one of adjusting to living within our means. And the means of our communities.

Green jobs and green careers are certainly part of the coming decade. Conservation, local business, home based productivity ... these are green and sustainable concepts that can provide for your family and your peace of mind.
