Happy 4th of July! Let’s make this one memorable


As we declare INDEPENDENCE from an unsustainable lifestyle

J. Morris Hicks, the "big picture guy" sharing powerful health-promoting and world-changing information with you every single day.

J. Morris Hicks, the “big picture guy” trying to leverage my unique background in engineering, corporate business, and executive search—in best serving millions of clients—ALL of the children of the world.

Today, I prepared a one-page handout that tells my entire story about the unprecedented problems we face and what I’m trying to do about it.

As a “big picture” guy myself, I have always felt that one should never need more than one page to describe a problem and/or a plan of action. If it takes more than one page, most will have trouble comprehending or remembering.

So, here it is, my handy, printer-friendly, one-page recipe. Happy 4th of July!

The J. Morris Hicks one-page recipe for INDEPENDENCE

Please distribute as you please and encourage the recipients to contact me with any ideas they might have about assembling that dream team consisting of one powerful leader and a few caring billionaires.

For more information regarding my business and executive search background, take a look at my bio summary on my executive search website. My tagline on that site reads: Delivering value well beyond executive search. I like to think that working to save our civilization for the children of the world—falls in that value category.

About J. Morris Hicks

A former strategic management consultant and senior corporate executive with Ralph Lauren in New York, J. Morris Hicks has always focused on the "big picture" when analyzing any issue. In 2002, after becoming curious about our "optimal diet," he began a study of what we eat from a global perspective ---- discovering many startling issues and opportunities along the way. In addition to an MBA and a BS in Industrial Engineering, he holds a certificate in plant-based nutrition from the T. Colin Campbell Center for Nutrition Studies, where he has also been a member of the board of directors since 2012. Having concluded that our food choices hold the key to the sustainability of our civilization, he has made this his #1 priority---exploring all avenues for influencing humans everywhere to move back to the natural plant-based diet for our species.

  1. Jim – my post on Facebook that forwarded your today’s email
    “K Ladies – Re-dedicate yourselves to WFPB nutrition as Dr. McDougall taught us 11.5 years ago!?? Whole Foods, Plant Based. Inspire your friends! Save your health and the world health! Jim Hicks one-pager:

    Great flyer. I’m printing some now. Jim, thank you for all you do. In my book, CLIMATE CHANGE: OUR CHILDREN ARE IN DANGER, I include how valuable it is to individuals and the planet to move to a plant-based diet. Even though my book is published, I am driven to continuing my research. More and more I am seeing food production and choices as the most important issue I can focus on. That is reflected in my workshops and speaking. I’ve read all your recommended books and I am on board!
    I’m curious, why is COMFORTABLE UNAWARE so difficult to find? Did it ruffle some powerful feathers? Used copies are going as high as $248! It was “unavailable “at Barnes and Noble. I finally found a used on at B&N.com.

    Great flyer, Jim. Just printed copies to give to my kids who are coming for the weekend. Let’s see if they’ll pass it out to the ‘big’ leaders of their ‘big’ firms. Also, will include in my newsletter. Are you sending this to cable channels? i.e. MSNBC – Scarborough, Chris Matthews, Rachel Maddow, etc. You never know when you’ll get the big hit. What has happened with the CA connect? Any movement there?

    • J. Morris Hicks says:

      Thanks Joanne. No, I have not sent this to the media folks but I certainly encourage others to do so. As for Cameron connection, both Jim and Suzy remain 100% in agreement with what I am trying to do, but they are not comfortable in that primary leadership role. But they could be invaluable when it comes to “enlightening” that eventual primary leader; whether it be Ted Turner, Bill Gates, Oprah, Pope Francis or Prince Charles. Happy 4th and be well, Jim
