I’ve been thinking about writing another book. It has something to do with creating a fundamentally different and better future. I have two possible titles. I have too many ideas. To help me form my ideas properly, and to keep me accountable for making progress (spot the coach in me), I’ve decided to ask for help – you’ve heard of crowd-funding? Welcome to crowd-critiquing! And what better time to start something than at the turning point of seasons!

For the next 365 days, I will post an idea every day on my blog. It might be a practical idea for sustainability. It might be a philosophical idea about governance. It might be a random thought about what might make other people’s lives better. It might be an “I wonder if we all thought this way about ourselves” observation about personal development It might be an environmental project. It may be a few lines, it may be a few paragraphs, it may be a few pages.

The intention is to post 365 ideas, one a day, and ask you – as many as possible – to give me feedback. What do you think? If you’re inspired to try one of the ideas, I’d like to hear about it. If an idea sparks another idea in you, I’d like to hear about it. And then I’ll share that one too. If you think an idea is worth sharing with others, please do.

At the end of 365 days of ideas, thoughts, musings, comments, feedback, observations about why something might or might not work, people trying things out and telling me how it went (hopefully), I will then pull together “The Result” – whatever it may look like by then. I can’t promise to give direct feedback to everyone – I’m hoping it’ll grow so big that I won’t be able to! I think that 365 ideas – new, refurbished, even old – multiplied by however many people get involved, may just start something worthwhile. If not, at least I will have 365 ideas on ‘paper’, which is more than I have now!

I invite everyone to help get #365ideas4change on the map. Tomorrow, idea 1, June 22 2015 – “Symphony in C”.
