This ebook is all over the internet and for good reason.  It harnessed thoughts from 70 of the world’s Biggest Thinkers.  Download it here.  Check out Seth Godin’s page if you haven’t already, he has several related links for you to check out in relation to this ebook as you begin to prep your Tribe for 2010.  Below this image I shared some of my immediate thoughts as I read through the ebook yesterday.  Enjoy the read, then Do Something.

GENROSITY

God made me for this moment. I LOVE GIVING. Time. Money. Art.

FEAR

I fight this monster everyday. The fear of what others think about us is debilitating.

FACTS

I love this. “Just the facts ma’am.” If that’s the case then we’ve lost humanity.

DIGNITY

I spend a lot of time in the projects of the City That Care Forgot, but what I’ve learned is that the people didn’t Forget To Care.

ROOM TO READ

Reading has to be pushed everywhere. It can’t be the forgotten art.

MEANING

Do it for Yourself. I’m back on my MeShit.

EASE

I can’t remember what anything smells like, let alone roses. My nephew was speeding through life until he fell into my life. Both of us were forced to take a step back from our individual lives. It looks different from the outside. Thank you Elizabeth, for encouraging me to look within.

CONNECTED

After being “forced” to take a step back from my life the phone didn’t ring as much (except for bill collectors) and I realized how disconnected I was from the people in my life.

RE-CAPITALISM

With the economy in shambles, everyone has to rethink our approach to business. Consumers have no money to spare. How do you justify your rates?

VISION

I know the Way. TRUST ME. I just need to figure out how to illustrate it better.

ENRICHMENT

Every time you speak, we get better as a result.

1%

This is why our children matter. They are the Tribe within the Tribe.

SPEAKING

You can’t overestimate passion.

ATOMS

Talk is cheap.

EXCELLENCE

Should we strive for anything less?

MOST

Mos Def

STRENGTHS

Know Thyself

RIPPLE

Start In Your Pond. Then jump into mine.
