I’m in the change business.
I’m guessing you are too, or you’d not be investing time here.
I wonder if you’ve also noticed, as I am increasingly, that there’s a very fine line between working on oneself and working on the greater good? Chicken and egg, right? To the extent I learn to manage my anxiety, calm my temper, or deepen my awareness I know others benefit. And, to the extent I share a smile with a scary-looking stranger, comfort a crying child who has been bullied, or work wonders facilitating a meeting, I know I benefit as well.
So, in the spirit of chicken and egg, I’m sharing a wonderful new resource I discovered today thanks to Seth Godin, who writes:
Now, more than ever, we need a different way of thinking, a useful way to focus and the energy to turn the game around. I hope a new ebook I’ve organized will get you started on that path. It took months, but I think you’ll find it worth the effort. (Download here).
Here are more than seventy big thinkers, each sharing an idea for you to think about as we head into the new year. From bestselling author Elizabeth Gilbert to brilliant tech thinker Kevin Kelly, from publisher Tim O’Reilly to radio host Dave Ramsey, there are some important people riffing about important ideas here. The ebook includes Tom Peters, Fred Wilson, Jackie Huba and Jason Fried, along with Gina Trapani, Bill Taylor and Alan Webber.

As Seth encourages us to do, please feel free to share.
