I am going to propose something over the next few weeks. I am not sure how best to do this,… and it matters to me, so I am nervous.
When I write blog posts, tweets, etc, I think about the likely interested reader and try to write for them.
But this is not about my readers getting interested. I want to do something in my local community and I need lots of support.
This proposal is going to impact almost all the people I know in some way – family, friends, neighbours, the local community, my PLN, and my business contacts.
I am sure that some people are going to think I am mad, bad, or just stupid.
I want to do this properly, but I also have to earn money while I do this and live alongside my neighbours, so I am going to have to find new (more diplomatic!) ways of working.
This proposal is also prompted by a couple of major motivations:
Being part of Purpos/ed – where we have been inspired to ask what the point of education is – I wanted to take it further.
I want to move from Purpos/ed to Chang/ed
I will make mistakes
It might not work
I will need help – maybe from you
I hope to learn a lot on the way
I will try to share as much of the journey as I can
I am doing this mainly because I have had enough of talking about doing something useful and stop being afraid of just doing it.
So,.., wish me luck.
