  4. Well said and timely insights for me. I’m working on a presentation on trends, and narrowed it down to three that seem to be in alignment with your list. In a few words, people, interaction, and community are what I chose, with a healthy dose of entrepreneurship woven through all of it.

  5. Great article! I think this recession has made us all smarter. More focused on what’s important.

  6. Yes! Lifestyle design, frugality and entrepreneurship. You nailed it. These are the tools for success in the New Economy, and those who wield them have the freedom to live life on their own terms.

    Thanks for sharing this post!

  7. Change is good. The more we understand and accept change the more we can take advantage of it. Lifestyle design is something I am working on these past few months.

    I love this new economy.

  8. When the “status quo” no long works we are compelled (and/or forced) to change how we work/live. We must return to basics and look into ourselves for the remedy. We don’t have to discover what we are capable of when we can hook up to the big companies and let them do the work. Job security is almost an obsolete term. It now takes interaction on our part to make it work. Some of us who have known this and practiced these principals are more likely to survive the changes from the Old to the New. Thanks for sharing.
