Bees at work (II): Rationale, Philosophy, and objectives.

Wishing you a lovely Epiphany weekend. Our aim for today is to offer you the scope and boundaries of our next 14 weeks of work. It is the first Friday of the year, and we will proceed directly to cover the rationale, the philosophy, and the objectives of the Winter/Spring (WS) saga. Find below, the song that was chosen for today´s post and why did we select Adele´s new soundtrack “Easy on me” last Tuesday.

“Bees at work” purpose

When we communicate our purpose, that means to share our aim or the goal of our decisions and actions.  With the saga “Bees at work”, our purpose is to create a conscious awareness crusade of how each community or species on the planet is naturally working, under a certain model of organization, for their own mission on earth. By exploring the honeybees, we will understand that bees are living the same issues that humans have started to perceive.  Our main aim is to show how important is to change our ways of working on the planet for the sake of keeping our equilibrium for the future.

“Bees at work” Rationale.

When we talk about the concept of rationale, we basically expose the fundamental reasons or principles that are the basis of our work. Our main reason to write this saga, as all the epics that we produce, is to make you think, to help you to land into the art of making decisions. Even though we focus on terms of education, business, and economics; we can apply any of our material to quotidian lives. Our rationale is also to help people to read again. We don´t produce videos with the clever intention that you can read our “not so flawless English” that is packed with integral and well-being ideas for making you think. In this saga scenario, we need to ask ourselves questions and resolve with possible answers about the nature of human working, the workforce of the future, and how our own technology accumulative creations are disturbing (for worst maybe) the delicate balance of our ecosystems and our survival in the planet.

“Bees at work” Philosophy.

When we land on the definition of philosophy, we are displaying an explanation of our research. The investigation of causes and laws underlying reality. It is our logical reasoning. Our philosophy is centered on an integral strategy for the well-being of our planet. Eleonora Escalante Strategy has cherry-picked the life of the bees because the bees are interconnected to our survival since the origins of our existence. Bees are inherent to the nature of our food subsistence, in the fields, in our gardens, in our lands. Particularly in agriculture.

Popular knowledge blames Einstein for stating that bees are essential for human civilization. However, the agricultural scientists have discerned by far about the role of the bees as pollinators of excellence, in between other species that visit flowers transferring pollen to produce a fruit or a seed. Many plants cannot reproduce without pollen carried to them by foraging pollinators. And that is why we landed into the bees’ stamina.

We will investigate the causes and laws of working at the hive bees’ communities as the natural pollinators of excellence in the globe, and then our logic will take us to human civilization. By comparing both working styles (bees vs humans), we will encounter and infer some similarities, differences, and an ample alteration of our common ground. Humans and bees (and the rest of the species) are now experiencing the consequences of human excessive greed when it comes to business.  The alteration of the planetary ecosystems is an outcome of our political-economic-business systems. And we need to address all the causes that are causing the deterioration of our species.

Each society has a style of “working and employment” that responds to businesses ways (enterprises or entrepreneurship initiatives) in which all of us are engaged. We need to study them, to realize what are we doing well, and what are we doing wrong, and what we need to change for future generations.

Finally, by far, this saga is a new method for us to open our eyes to the main mission of humans on the planet (written in the book of Genesis 2:15): “The Lord God took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to work it and take care of it”.

“Bees at work” Objectives.

  1. To describe and comprehend the life of the honeybees at the hive, their swarm intelligence, the way in which the bees ‘communities are organized and how they make decisions.
  2. To understand which risks are associated to the current difficulties of the bees.
  3. To recognize what is the key message of wisdom that comes from the life of the bees and connect the dots with human sophisticated societies.
  4. To emphasize some key aspects of how humans have worked in the past, our present, and what we perceive it could be the future of work.
  5. To cognize that work is being made by God and by humans, not to be unhappy, but to dignify our mission in the planet. Men and women are complementary in this mission.
  6. To apprehend the benefits and difficulties of women in the workplace. Moreover, to realize that women (who decide to marry and have babies) all over the planet, need a different schedule than men, when it comes to corporate roles, or to be entrepreneurs. We need to acknowledge that when women are building a family, the challenge is to keep them happy in the middle of so much work. A happy female worker is a happy mom. For example: if societies need to reduce schedule formats for women in the workforce, without impacting their salaries or career plans; then societies need to begin some adjustments.
  7. To grasp the importance of conceiving our working places as a school, as a learning organization. What is the meaning of working with a learning model?
  8. To become conscious of all the benefits and dangers associated with the excessive degree of the NAIQIs applied in our working models.
  9. To figure out a hybrid working model and implement a research agenda in terms of work for the next 10 years.
  10. Finally, we will land into offering the key elements of a new state-of the-art working paradigm that may be suitable for all societies, regardless if these belong to the developed or developing countries.

We have finished our academic material for today.

Our updated outline. January 7th, 2021.

Now it is the turn of our music section.

Why did we select Adele´s artwork? First, it fulfills our basic requirements about picking music created with traditional instruments. Adele has been catapulted to be a famous singer, not just because of her voice, but because of the consistency of her style, and her background (she studied music to be a singer). Her melodies touch us, irrespective of whether we like them or not. “Easy on me” specific song lyrics are a bit blue, not just because you can perceive Adele´s remarkable expression of regret and steady explanation for something that has represented a collapse in her past. Adele has openly said that her last album is about a turbulent season related to her divorce and a promise of hope to her son Angelo. Even though she has a particular reason for the theme, it can be applied to any one of us all over the world who has made decisions and actions that don´t seem fair for others. Anyone of us who have gone through a hard loss or difficult situation, and then we need to justify or rationalize an indirect crying for pardon, without expressing forgiveness, without losing hope in the intent.  

When we opt for making decisions that imply to shake off or to affect innocent people, or to inoffensive species (as the bees that we are currently altering). We don´t want it to be too late to fix and afford the consequences. Even if we express the rationale of the guiltlessness involved. That is why we insist, it is wise, to go slowly, or to take it easy with our things, with our business models, with our cooperation programs. Otherwise, “please go easy on me”.

Today´s song is Silent Night. Yesterday we celebrated here the Epiphany (Kings´ day). It is unthinkable to don´t share a theme that takes us to the Bethlehem star night, to the season on which Jesus Christ was born. Matthew 2: 1-12 explains the visit of the Magi to the Messiah in detail. The song “Silent Night” deserves to be here with us. The first interpretation is from Kenny G; the second one belongs to Michael Bublé; and the last one to Joshua Bell ft. Young People’s Chorus of NYC. Joshua Bell is a violinist that will impress us, with an experiment he did at one metro station in Washington D.C. We will describe it in our next publication.

See you next week. We will land on our first chapter of understanding the bee’s journey.

Blessings and thank you for reading to me.
