Start a Movement

dripWhat’s a movement?

It’s an idea that you think is either crazy or awesome. 

If you think it’s crazy, or something you wouldn’t dare be a part of, then you’re not.  You’re not part of the movement.  That’s okay. Not everyone is part of every movement.  They can happen without you.

If you think the idea is awesome, then you’re in, you’ve signed up.  It’s something that you are excited about ‘moving’ forward so you tell all your friends about it. Or maybe you just tell those who you think might be interested.  You try to spread the idea, because the more people who are in, or who help the cause, will mean that the cause or the idea will have a larger impact.

So why not start a movement?  Did I mention anywhere how many people are required to start a movement? Or how many people it takes before the movement has accomplished it’s goal?

If you have an idea, and you only need 3 more people to do something to accomplish your goal, then you start a movement to make something happen.  The idea moved from you to 3 others, achieved a goal, and is done.  A successful movement.

That, my friend, is a ‘micromovement.’ 

And you probably create them all day long.  So if it’s that easy to start a movement, maybe you ought to do it more often.

What is a Micromovement?

microYou know what a ‘movement’ is – people who are passionate about a particular subject who try to ‘move’ their ideas or concept forward.  They do this by talking about it among themselves, discussing every nuance, applying it to different situations, telling stories about it, and sharing it with others so they can get more people to join them.

But people mistakenly have the perception that a movement must be a large group of people who are changing society, or the government, or major institutions.  That may be true, but those kind of changes didn’t start out that way.  And aren’t there other changes that need to be made, or ideas that should be spread? Like within your family, or your neighborhood, or your school, or your work?

If you are working with more than one person, and you’re trying to make a difference or spread an idea, then you have a micromovement.

So go create more micromovements, a whole bunch of them, then maybe some day one of them might become macro.
