I've listed the principles below and added some commentary on how each applies to our day-to-day working lives, specifically focusing on entrepreneurship.

Really enjoyed this article, Christa and your take on it. I especially like Werbach's take on: "Foster longevity, not immediate gratification. Nature does not buy on credit and uses resources only to the level that they can be renewed." In this economy, seems very apropos for the business world. Thanks for sharing this!
