The Voice of Joyce: Create a life of value

If I were running for office I wouldn’t speak about us vs them. I wouldn’t denigrate my opponent , rather I would state what “I Could offer people”.
If I had traveled the World,  personally I’ve visited 60 Countries, I would take the best from every society and incorporate their methods in this Country.   However, if you have a team and a vision concentrating on changing the American way of life for the better, it can be done by reworking the existing institutions.
As we “Segue” (pronounced “Segway”) from worshiping the dollar, as we must, we should be able to create new profitable entities with the added emphasis on valuing people! So many of us have gone for psychological therapy, yoga, mindfulness training. Why have we gone? Simple,  we want to change our individual lives. We don’t want to be victims, we want better relationships with our families and our friends . We see life as a journey and our journey is made more pleasurable with flexibility and compassion for ourselves and others without judgement and without labels.  It’s a tough road to travel,  and most likely never ends , as we live and evolve as human beings.
This is not an easy journey, but if we all travel together and care about people over greed, we will create a society that’s fair and provides equal opportunity for all of us.
On this campaign trail the candidates rail about crime and punishment.  They point fingers at each other, while obscuring the  real message , their Plans for a Better Society , that “we the People” are desperate to hear about and understand!   It’s time for positive disruption.  I have a vision for America by Americans , for Americans.


  • We can change our institutions, the ground work is there.
  • We can change our prisons, because the ground work is there.
  •  We can change our Fiscal Policies  along with Corporate Taxation by substituting laws that provide monetary stability and address the needs of Main Street !
  • We can truly change our World, if we are open to cooperative ideas!

Our Society, reminds me of one of my projects at Ford.    When I was at Ford Motor Co in 1976, I was tasked with an “old problem”, eliminate ” dirt in paint”.    Not only did I personally tour the paint shops of most of Ford’s North American Plants, I set up conferences every few months, bringing all the Paint Shop Managers together for a “show and tell”.  For the “FIRST TIME”, they came together and  compared their procedures and their problems  and became friends. It was a “win win.”   Everyone learned and passed on their best innovations!  We cleaned up our Paint Shops.  I know, Ford spent $180,000,000 on new facilities based on our requests. Their cars and trucks were “built better by Ford”.


Now let’s think about “we the people” and America.  America has always been #1.  We’ve lost our way for too many years catering to Big Business , the Banks , CEO’s and others with the money to influence our political system.  However, if as individuals, we unite, we the people can prevail .  We can  restore the American Dream and work for the pursuit of life filled with value , purpose & happiness for all of us.


Thank you for reading, dear followers, I welcome your comments and suggestions, for “what it takes to live the good life!    After a long hiatus, I’m back.
