This blog discusses survivability, resilience, and persistence. In this example we use sea turtles. The Institute for Strategic Improvement is a supporter of the Sea turtle Conservancy www.conserveturtles.org .
Many factors affect our lives and the lives of others. How we poise ourselves to protect the environment and sustainability of green initiatives is an indicator for future quality. That is one of the reasons we support sea turtle conservation.
Do you have any idea what the percentage of sea turtles is that actually survive after hatching? There are a number of factors that affect their chances. The average number of eggs in a sea turtle nest is 110 only an estimated one in 1,000 to 10,000 will survive to adulthood.

Light confusion from artificial lighting
Light confusion occurs when the turtles confuse the wavelength of lights and are disoriented from the sea. Use Turtle Safe Lighting - these red lights emit a very narrow portion of the visible light spectrum, which is less intrusive to nesting sea turtles and hatchlings.

Based on the number of constraints and factors they encounter and their size it's impressive the number that do make it.
How do we improve their odds? By improving quality and reducing risk.
We improve their quality by providing education and awareness.
Reduction in environmental pollutants
We reduce their risk by providing structured protective habitats in release programs and elimination of hazards.
In this context how do you improve your own survival rate and thrive-al rate in business competition, academics, sports and other venues? The principles are the same quality management. What are you doing today to improve the quality of your life?
