Do you believe in community elves, culture fairies, or any other mythical creatures of collaboration?
I do believe in these 5 truths:
- True communities & great collaborations start with the foundation of a meaningful relationship, not a transaction.
- Learning is a part of everyday life, and we learn best from each other.
- Either the world happens to you, or you happen to the world. You get to choose which.
- Success, happiness, and love are things that are not achieved but are experienced, and are best experienced with others.
- Do, or do not. There is no try. JFDI.
If you agree with any of these ideas, I'm happy to tell you that you're in the right place.
