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.
