Isn’t it scary sometimes, after you’ve written an email that’s important to you, to just click the send button? It was for me when I drafted an email inviting a bunch of my friends to participate in a class based on the ideas of Seth Godin.
I love Seth Godin and what he’s doing. I get his daily blog posts emailed to me, and a few weeks ago I got one that introduced ‘Krypton‘, a new project he’s launching based on the idea that we learn better when we learn together. So I followed the ‘Krypton’ link in his post, signed up to receive the Krypton newsletters, knew immediately that I wanted to be part of this, and decided to be an organizer. How could I not? It’s free, and it’s open to everyone. How cool is that?
So I sent out the email, and people signed up. (Scary step #1 accomplished.) We’ll meet for an hour or so, every Thursday at noon, for four weeks. This first course is entitled Go: How to Overcome Fear, Pick Yourself, & Start a Project that Matters. Here is a link to the course syllabus if you’re interested. So, onto scary step #2 – actually facilitating the class. Fortunately I will be amongst friends, and I am super excited for this great opportunity.
Here is a very cool video from the Krypton site that describes the philosophy behind the project:
