Integral Accounting is both an operating system and a way of being in the world that honours and reveals the true value already present in all dimensions of life. Most people approach the world through a type of uni-dimensional awareness. The form of dimensional constraint to which we’ve all become accustomed limits value to a single dimension we call “Money”.
But what would the world be like if we expanded our notions of value beyond a single dimension of money and into four, five, or even six dimensions. How would the world appear if we honored the dimension of money and recognized its role, but also perceived value across multiple domains and categories previously ignored or unnoticed. Integral Accounting upgrades our operating system so that we can see the value that is already present everywhere and in everything, no matter what the circumstances. Equipped with the optics of Integral Accounting, we begin to realize that everything we need for the next step on our journey (professionally, socially, personally) is already here. With the lens of Integral Accounting, we see that the world is perfectly abundant exactly as it is.
This call was recorded with a live virtual audience on Monday 15th December 2014, Australian time, as the events in Sydney Martin Place were unfolding, were a gunman had seized hostages in the Lindt Coffee Shop.
As I write this and upload this audio, the outcomes of this hostage event has not been resolved.

2:23AM Podcast, Season #1, Episode #16 - Dan Pink, Best Selling Author; Drive, To Sell is Human
Lucky me got to chat with Dan Pink. I have followed Dan since I read A Whole New Mind. So it was lovely when one of my friends and supporters of 2:23AM made the personal introduction.
I am always fascinated by the threads that resonate strongly through peoples lives, and with Dan it has been his commitment and tenacity to bring social and cultural research to a global audience in a way that makes sense and challenges some of our deeper assumptions about work, and what motivates us. And the extraordinary commitment Dan has to make his message come alive for people, landing in simplicity...certainly the simplicity on the other side of complexity.
Enjoy this episode.
Daniel H. Pink is the author of five provocative books — including three long-running New York Times bestsellers, A Whole New Mind, Drive, and To Sell is Human. Dan’s books have been translated into 34 languages and have sold more than 2 million copies worldwide. He is also host and co-executive producer of “Crowd Control,” a new television series about human behavior on the National Geographic Channel. He lives in Washington, DC, with his wife and their three children.
*What inhabits Dan's center a lot is a sense of challenge. "Can I do something in a different way, can I master this set of material? Can I explain something that sheds light for people?" Plus a desire to make a tiny contribution.
*Dan is an intensely rational person
*Dream dinner guest, Jesus, Buddha and Mohammed - they have far greatest impact in terms of quantity of people reached, plus this dinner would enable Dan to turn the conversation into a great book. What do they make of what is going on in the world today? Get them to put their three heads together and have them tell us what they would do today.
*There is an element of morality in goodness that is rational. Certain aspects of morality are encoded in our DNA.
*"Obscurity is a much greater problem than piracy"
*Big five traits - openness, conscientiousness, extroversion, agreeableness, neuroticism
*Conscientiousness has become a very important predictor of flourishing and effectiveness
*Dan goes through his writing process with us

*The future of work and people's relationship to work - we we are always on, always connected
*Liberated work or free range work - a new way of working - people choose the work and their lifestyle
*About 40% of workers have some form of liquidity in their work - are in the independent workforce. The lines are blurring between being a freelancer and being employed
*How do you combine people and ideas to form new products or services that add value? The people that can become masters at collaboration and coming up with new ideas are creating the new capital
*At Hub Adelaide - brought together government, local small businesses and youth entrepreneurs, groups of people who might not have otherwise come together...resulted in youth entrepreneurs creating nine businesses
*One of the key things that underlie Hub is that is it a fail free zone
*Chaordic space - between chaos and order - requires a deliberate but light touch in the curation of the space
*People coming to co-working spaces for the possibility of what might happen when they come together
*Two required roles; the Space Host- makes the space feel welcome and authentic and the Community Manager- builds the connections between everyone
*GSD = getting shit done
*Fail free zone - no-one brings their position title into the HUB. Everyone's on the same level. This allows an opening up for surprise
*A space is not sufficient for collaboration. You need a diversity of spaces
*When the members become the hosts you see the community come alive
*The host is not there to get you a coffee, they are there to get you a connection
*When the founder of a start up actually enjoys what they are working on and where they are working it trumps any good idea
*The next boom in Australia is harnessing the knowledge capital of the really diverse talent we have across Australia
*How do we catalyze a national network of work hubs, 100's even 1000's of work hubs across Australia, in regional areas as well?
*By 2025 75% of the work force will be Gen Y. Flexibility, global workforce, all second nature to Gen Y. If you do not change to embrace this as a company the Gen Y people will leave for another company
*How would we create the organisation of the future from what we know now?
*The combination of distributed nodes and centralised networks
*The forth space...between the virtual and the physical
*It's actually much easier working in a silo. Collaboration is hard. But worthwhile and needed
