How to Start a Movement…in 3+ minutes

Diego Rivera’s “The Organization of the Agrarian Movement”

Tonight, I saw this wonderful TED Talk video.  The 3+ minute video is a good condensation of how to start any movement.

The movement had a brave, if not completely sober leader.  A critical second person joined the leader, transforming him “…from a lone nut to a leader…”, instantly.  The second guy waves to his friends.  A third joins, a fourth, and then a general sprint to the movement.

We are herd animals, at heart.  We all like our quiet time, but in the end, our better moments are shared with our herd.

Let’s take our herd somewhere herdtastic.

    Hi! I’m nominating you for the Liebster Award! The award is for bloggers who have under 200 followers and who’s blogs we like. I love your blog because I learn so much every time I read it. Someone just nominated me, and I was so flattered. I have no idea what “Liebster” means, but its supposed to go to our favorite blogs.
    There’s a whole weird process you have to do once you are nominated. I have the rules posted on my blog. I don’t know if you have to follow all of them!
    Take care!

    Hi! I don’t know if you’ve read my last two posts about my thoughts on the whole WordPress award system, but I’ve decided recently that I will no longer participate in the awards. If I’m offered one again, fine, but I’m not going to post an award on my blog anymore. I’ve actually taken down the posts that had the awards displayed. So, if you are looking for the list of rules for how to accept the award, you can go to http://walkingwiththealligators.wordpress.com/2013/06/17/790/. They are not on my blog anymore. I had nominated this blogger, Gator Woman, a while ago. Funny thing is, she agrees with me about the awards! I think she just accepted it to be nice!

    I have a feeling you may not like the award process, either. So don’t feel forced to follow the stupid rules!

    Take care, dude!

      Hello out there 🙂

      My young kids have been at home from school for the summer. We have had a blast (tons of swimming at lakes, biking, clearing the woods and trails of all zombies with our “deadly” stick weapons), but they are not too patient while dad is researching and typing, lol. School starts in about a week, and I hope to be back in the saddle soon!

      Thanks for reaching out, Tanya. “See” you soon!
