Announcing Publication

Qualities of Living: A Platform for Progress - Author Barbara S. McFall offers an approach for defining
and measuring quality of living for the purpose of expanding the focus on quality of living as the desired
outcome of practice. This monograph describes a matrix that includes physical, mental, and emotional
well-being and dimensions of intellectual, organizational, social, material, natural, and financial
satisfactions. This approach could position Family and Consumer Sciences/Human Sciences at the center
of key societal issues involving quality of living, creating value among interested stakeholders. An
annual measure of quality of living developed from this understanding would reliably identify emerging
and met needs, establishing control of the quality-of-living agenda. More

A Message for the New Year - Thriving in a World of Change

There is not an industry or profession that is not swamped with change. People come and go.
Regulations, standards, and new software can over-whelm every business and organization. There is
competition and ...... the stress is enormous. 

How about in your world? 

Constant change both thrills and threatens us. We love the new opportunities, but too often we end up
running as fast as we can just to stay even. New competitors, new tools and new skills challenge us
every week. Change is the constant in our world. 

Here’s the thing: We want to grow and develop! We want new tools, new adventures and new
resources. Most of the time, we welcome change with open arms. But, sometimes it’s just too much.
We’ve become infatuated with anything “new” whether it enriches our lives or not. 

Sometimes the “old” is good enough. Sometimes the familiar is more comfortable and actually more
effective. I have a friend who uses an old-fashioned slide-rule partly for the nostalgia, but also because
it’s faster than doing calculations on his computer. Sometimes, the old is good. 

Here are three suggestions for thriving on change: 

1. Maintain lots of “personal bandwidth.” That means taking superb care of yourself! People who are
happy, healthy, and rested simply do better than people who are tired, hungry, stressed, or worried.
Practice extreme self-care. Maintain your personal bandwidth. 

2. Celebrate the Big Picture. Know what’s going on and understand the context of your world.
Remember, some people lead, other’s follow, and some just don’t have a clue. Be a leader! And that
means seeing the big picture, knowing where your world is going, and being out in front. 

3. Invest in Tools. Knowledge and skills matter! The more you know about your industry and what’s
happening (and who’s leading), the more options you have. Remember, “leaders are readers.” And I
love the quote from Buckminster Fuller: “You can’t learn less.” 

Our world is infatuated with anything “new” or “improved,” and that’s not going to change. What you
can control is your response to change. Master it! Learn skills for evaluating change. Learn to “respond”
rather than merely “reacting.” Use change and growth and transformation to your advantage rather
than merely trying to hang on and endure! In 2006, make change (and growth!) your friend. Use it to
your advantage. 

Thrive in our world of Change!!!
