Product Description

About the Author

Jeff Olson has spent most of his life trying to create better connections between people and nature. He grew up in suburbia, where he saw how quickly a landscape of open space could become a placeless sprawl...and realized that better planning and design were the keys to the future. Jeff studied architecture and public policy, but there were two experiences that really shaped his vision: a year living in Rome, and a bike trip with friends between New York and Boston. He says, "I've worked in the non-profit, public and private sectors, but it has always been a vision of wanting to create a better world that has moved me forward." Jeff served as the first New York State DOT bike/pedestrian program manager, and then went on to lead the US Millennium Trails program before joining Alta. "I love my family, bicycling and skiing...creating balance is the key to work and life. We're making the world a better place, one project at a time."

Persistence, Patience and Passion. 3 Modes for Success! 4 Jun. 2013
By David Sayer - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
An equally appropriate title for this collection of stories would be "The Third Rail", as it trains readers to electrify and propel projects by expanding the spectrum of solutions.

Jeff's ebullient advocacy shines through in every story. He takes you into the planning meetings and strategy sessions where conventional group-think has already set in, and recounts how unexpected input changed the outcome from predictable to exciting.

While a simplistic reading may take away the impression that "more bikes" should always be the answer, the plain truth is that persistence, patience, and a whole lot of passion is what drives world-changing projects. These stories attest to Jeff's amazing record of dedication and advocacy, in service to the near-universal goal of greener, healthier communities.

Was hoping for more ideas on how to encourage third mode thinking. Reading Olson's stories was informative but only leads to thinking more of how.
