It’s because we are underinvesting in people. Investing more means caring more.We give people answers when we should be teaching them to think. But providing an answer takes only a few minutes and teaching people to think takes more time and real effort.We give people money when we should be teaching them to create increasingly greater levels of value. Giving people money helps them in the short term, but it doesn’t provide growth. It’s much more difficult to help people increase their value.We try to motivate people to take action and to improve their own results, their own lives. But that motivation lasts only a short time. It’s more difficult to help people identify and activate their real purpose, the internal motivation that they can sustain over their lifetime.We use quick fix solutions to long term, systemic problems. The person who needs help might take the help and go away, but they haven’t left any better than off then when you found them. They’re still dependent.Why You UnderinvestUnderinvesting produces dependents instead of independence. And there are five reasons that you might be underinvesting.Your failure to invest in people might mean that you believe the person you are “helping” can’t improve or grow. They aren’t worth investing in because you believe they are incapable of improving.People will surprise you if you give them a chance.It might also suggest that you believe they aren’t really worth the level of investment required, that you believe that there is something more important than helping them grow.Your legacy is going to consist of nothing more than the lives you touched, for good or for ill.It might be that you really don’t know how to give people the real help they need. This is probably the least likely reason; it’s likely that you are extremely capable and well suited to providing that level of help.You have the abilities you possess for a reason.Some people fail to give people the help they really need because it gives them power or control. If their help is always needed, then they are significant, they’re important.Nothing makes you more significant that helping people grow.But when it comes to helping people grow, the most likely reason you are underinvesting is that you aren’t really focused on that outcome. You’re focused on treating the presenting problem and not the real source of the problem. Changing the outcome and investing in caring enough to really help solves that problem—and it provides real help.What to InvestInvesting in people is expensive. Really helping requires you to make much greater investments.You have to make a greater investment of the most limited and fleeting of all your possessions: your time. Investing your time to really help produces outsized returns. The time invested to give people the help they need is returned to you many times over because it creates independence instead of dependents.You have to make a greater investment of your emotional energy. You have to care enough about the person that needs your help to give them the help that they really need. That means you have to shift the outcome from how you can help this person in the fastest way possible to how you can help them grow. It’s inefficient. That energy is expensive. It requires patience. It requires tolerance.If you are reading this and it has touched in you some way, then it’s likely there’s a long line of people that invested enough in caring about you to give you the help that you really needed. Remember what that looked like? Remember how that felt? Remember the difference it made in your life? That’s the investment in caring you need to make in helping others.QuestionsAre you giving the people that ask you for help the help that really need? Or are you doing what is efficient over what is really effective?Are you really creating the value that you are capable of creating? Or are you shortchanging yourself and the people that need your help?What is the root cause of your underinvestment in caring about other people enough to give them the help that they really need?last_img

Image Courtesy of Auburn University Rural StudioWritten by Barbara PoradaSeptember 01, 2013 Share “COPY”center_img “COPY” ArchDaily CopyAuburn University’s Rural Studio, an undergraduate program that focuses on designing well-built, low-cost housing for the poor across three counties of Alabama, will be celebrating its 20th anniversary this 2013-14 academic year. Since 1993, Rural Studio has been recycling, reusing, remaking and using local materials while maintaining the belief that both rich and poor deserve good design. In honor of 20 successful years of helping Alabama’s rural poor, Rural Studio will, for the first time, design eight 20K Houses in one year- and they need your help.Rural Studio built its first 20K House in 2005, under the direction of Andrew Freear, and has since become an ongoing research program. The objective of the 20K House project was “to design and build a model home that could be reproduced on a large scale by a contractor and built for $20,000, thus addressing the need for affordable housing.” The 20K figure was chosen because it was considered the highest realistic mortgage possible for someone living off Social Security and is usually divided into two parts: $10-12,000 for materials and $8-10,000 for labor. Being far more durable than the countless house trailers that dot Hale County and capable of doubling in value within 1.5 years, the houses are simple but extremely well thought-out. They take far less energy to heat or cool by incorporating techniques such as passive cooling through cross-ventilation and they incorporate safe and dual uses, such as a large concrete closet that can double as a tornado-safe room. Save this picture!”Joanne’s House” by Rural Studio. Image Courtesy of Auburn University Rural StudioAccording to architect Marion McElroy, “students in Rural Studio can spend four days discussing the placement of a refrigerator” – a clear indication of the care taken in designing each home. The program trains Auburn students to become “citizen architects” who understand that everyone deserves “shelter for the soul” – words used by the program’s co-founder, the late Samuel Mockbee. Architects weren’t meant to be “house pets for the rich,” he used to tell them, and that thought has certainly stuck with Rural Studio to this day.Rural Studio invites everyone to be a part of its 20th anniversary celebration and needs your support to reach its $160,000 goal by December 6, 2013. Adopt-A-20K is the Rural Studio online fundraising campaign that offers twelve adoption options from a 2×4 to a whole $20K House. A donation of any amount, received on behalf of Rural Studio by the Auburn University Foundation, helps to build a home for a family today and to educate the citizen architects of tomorrow.

Selleney replaces a tired, single storey house in need of major works, with a light and inspiring 4/5 bed, 230 sq. metre family home.TDO’s proposals for the house near Windsor included the substantial demolition of previous additions to the original 19C cottage, which was retained and carefully refurbished. A significant new build element provides the majority of the accommodation‪.Save this picture!© Mark CocksedgeSet up around a series of sightlines, the building explores a transition from the moment of arrival to a gradual immersion in the garden setting.The new-build element is set off an existing cottage and formed of two frames with distinct axes: one orientated to the entrance courtyard, the second to the garden. Walking between them gradually draws the eye into the garden setting‪.Save this picture!© Mark CocksedgeWorking with off-site construction TDO saw an opportunity to meet the £100 / sq ft budget. The single storey structure was designed within the parameters of the contractor’s workshop tools and working methods, using standard sheet sizes and easily transportable elements. The building was largely pre-fabricated and fixed together on site‪.Save this picture!Type PlanTDO’s intention was to use economic, widely available materials and detail them in a precious manner. As a practice they have experimented widely with birch faced ply, which the client was excited to explore further. This formed the principle building material.Save this picture!© Mark CocksedgeWorking closely with the contractor TDO were able to take advantage of their supply-chain efficiencies by choosing materials such as through-colour renders and GRP roofing. This was combined with extensive use of off-site construction to retain control over costs, wastage and environmental impact on site.Save this picture!© Mark CocksedgeThe design exposes the structural and framing elements to give the building ‘free detail’. With the skeleton exposed, the attention to structural alignments and junction details had a high priority in the design process. Save this picture!© Mark CocksedgeWindow frames on the south-eastern kitchen elevation are formed as deep fins to protect from southern sun and overlooking. The exposed structural grid aligns with the frames and oversails the external wall to form a shading canopy. Save this picture!© Mark CocksedgeThe north eastern living area elevation opens to the garden setting, and the exposed structural grid is accordingly set at 90º to that of the kitchen to reinforce this relationship. The building’s exposed structure describes how it is built, maximises daylight, frames views and forms relationships around the site.Project gallerySee allShow lessA Japanese Constellation: Toyo Ito, SANAA, and BeyondExhibitionSHoP and West 8 to Masterplan Philadelphia’s “Schuylkill Yards”Architecture News Share ArchDaily Houses “COPY” CopyAbout this officeTDO ArchitectureOfficeFollowProductsWoodGlassConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentExtensionWindsorNorthern IrelandUnited KingdomPublished on March 11, 2016Cite: “Selleney / TDO Architecture” 11 Mar 2016.

Gwanggyo House / JYA-RCHITECTS

A couple visited the JYA office and shared their wish to build a house on a sunlit ground facing a cozy park in its south. With nice gentle smiles, they naturally displayed modesty and warmth. As to show their affection for people, they dreamed of a house that is ‘open to people’. To them, the house had both ‘internal’ and ‘external’ meanings: a place where their family and relatives get together and share lives as well as a space where their friends and neighbors casually come by and chat together. For that reason, they wanted spaces like open lounge or daecheong, a Korea’s traditional main floored room and wished to capture the characteristics of such open spaces in their new house.Save this picture!© Hwang HyochelAs such, our work started from imagining all the necessary spaces for the family. We first thought of a family room where people could meet one another, take rest, read books or play together or individually. The room would absorb sufficient sunlight and capture the view of a beautiful sunset as well as that of a little park and a hill in front of the house. Next was the spacious structure of the house that would allow family members to simultaneously engage in various activities. An ideal example of this was numaru, a balcony-like raised veranda that would give an enjoyably nostalgic and serene sentiment. Based on the numaru concept, we reinterpreted its spacial characteristics, captured them into inner space of the new house and started to unravel the rest of spaces.Save this picture!© Hwang HyochelIn turn, the family room was to be located at the center of the 2nd floor, along with a main bedroom and kids’ bedrooms on each side. It would act as a place that connects and disconnects parents and children. They would enjoy reading books from shelves that fully cover the wall or take a nap on a window bench facing south. At the center of the room, there is a staircase that leads to the 1st floor. The staircase creates a downward flow, divides the family room into big, small, wide and narrow spaces and further blocks any unnecessary gaze. Following the staircase down to the 1st floor, a kitchen and dining room that face a front yard come into sight.Save this picture!© Hwang HyochelThe most important spaces on the 1st floor are a kitchen, dining room and a small living room, all of which are connected to the front yard. The dining room leads to a small toenmaru, then to the front yard while a big wide door of the living room is linked to a daecheongmaru, a main floored room that captures the whole sight of the front yard. Such structure resembles that of Korea’s traditional front yard, making it possible to watch kids play in the yard and greet neighbors passing by. Children could play not only in the yard but also in the park right outside the house by simply going out through its side door. As such, this open yard would genuinely act as a place of play and exchange—at least to those joyful children.Save this picture!© Hwang HyochelThe house that embraces these spaces is built in a rather simple form. Its exterior is also finished with bricks in subtle color that reflects the modest taste of the client. Nonetheless, an exposed structure of its living room creates a dynamic diagonal line, interestingly adding different images to the house from different angles.Save this picture!© Hwang HyochelThe couple and their three sons who dreamed of a house ‘open to people’ encounter and exchange with a far more people than we expected. The three kids are all over the attic, the family room, the living room and the bathroom, and their new friends are welcome to the house anytime. The parents now spend more time in the house and meet more people more often.Save this picture!ElevationSave this picture!SectionAs a house would ‘resemble’ people who reside in it, we wanted build a house that resembles the client family—a simple modest house that warmly embraces and welcomes people. With sincere hope and no doubt, anything that has not yet been captured in the house will be eventually filled with the family’s fullness and richness of their daily lives.Save this picture!© Hwang HyochelProject gallerySee allShow lessAsia Pacific Youth Exchange Center of Fudan University / W&R GROUPSelected ProjectsHauser & Wirth Pop-up Bookshop / dongqi ArchitectsSelected Projects Share CopyHouses•Yongin-si, South Korea South Korea Projects “COPY” Photographs Year:  Manufacturers: Lunawood, Hanyang Tile, VEKA system window Products translation missing: en-US.post.svg.material_description Houses Area:  222 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project “COPY” CopyAbout this officeJYA-RCHITECTSOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesYongin-siSouth KoreaPublished on February 24, 2018Cite: “Gwanggyo House / JYA-RCHITECTS” 23 Feb 2018.
