Individual. Vision. Community.

I was thinking today about movement and inspiration; the things that keep us going and motivate us towards our truest potentials and creative purposes. First of all, I think there's a certain amount of individual drive and push thats required. But I also believe there's a certain amount of community involvement that takes idea and fantasy to fruition and actuality.

It really starts with an individual passion and personal sense of urgency. (YOU dream something - big, small, whatever.) But then with the support and aide of a community "sold" on the idea and passionately behind the idea or task or risks involved, is the force that brings said idea to reality.

And then comes the 'tweener point that can either build on the community atmosphere or stop with at the individual level.

And that essential element is VISION.

A dream with an understood and solid VISION, and a community behind it, can be unstoppable!

So what's your dream? You have one. You may not be doing anything about it, but you have one (or many).

Have you taken dream to vision?

Do you have the support of a community?

How can you turn your dream into a movement?

Who's on your side?

Now's as good a time to start as any...
