Sustainability is a vital sign of life. To live well and live long, sustainability is the way. In fact, it’s the way of life. Sustainable life means living well and living long. To do this requires living whole — which means to stay healthy, be happy, grow wise, have sufficient material wealth, be creative, adaptable and resilient, preserve the earth, contribute to community and social harmony — all in a conscious and balanced way. Sustainability is the “new success,” because it’s sustainable success, and it’s not a given. It’s an ability—the “sustain-ability”—that needs to be learned and exercised. In Sustainable Life, noted futurist James Wanless, Ph.D. examines the principles of personal sustainability as the means of living a healthy, whole life—achieving personal sustainability and contributing to global sustainability through our personal choices. The book is illustrated with images from Wanless' Sustain Yourself Cards, a perfect companion and tool for living your Sustainable Life. The last chapter of the book includes a Sustainability Action Journal for recording your insights and progress on the sustainability path.
