Back in February one of my favorite bloggers Chris Guillebeau of “The Art of Non-Conformity” started a World Domination Postcard Project. The project related to a document he wrote called “A Brief Guide to World Domination”. It’s a free report that I highly recommend reading.
The idea behind the project is for people to share their answers to “two most important questions in the universe”:
- What do you really want to get out of life?
- What can you offer the world that no one else can?
Every week a postcard is chosen and highlighted on Chris’s site “The Art of Non-Conformity”. This week my postcard was selected. You can check it out here.
One of the things I have really enjoyed about following this project is reading the responses from others who have submitted postcards. There was Randall who spoke of the “fullness and richness of loving deeply and living big in the world.” You can check out his website here.
Then there was Emma in Sydney Australia who “really” wants to “Love God, love people and love life with everything I have.” I can certainly relate to that. It’s something that we all should be doing. We can all use and give more love.
Jeb from Santa Ana, California struck a note with me when he said “…I want to raise my boys in such a way that they have not only the confidence, but the inclination to uncover it for themselves.”As a father of two boys I want the same for them. I want them to go out and discover what they can offer the world to make a difference and to think for themselves.
Mary in Louisville Kentucky says “…I aspire to be kind, loving and helpful to people I care about.” I read this after I had a conversation with a homeless couple recently. Just the action of stopping and talking with people in need can really make a difference the life of another human being.
Benjamin Jenks in Grand Haven Michigan is hitch hiking around the Country meeting people from all walks of life that are changing the world for the better. He’s definitely living life on his own terms and he’s got lots of heartwarming stories to share about people making a difference. Watching the news these days you’d think we have become a Country of uncaring people but I think in some ways Benjamin is showing that there are plenty of good and caring people out there doing amazing things.
And there are plenty of other people out there that are thinking about these questions and working to live an unconventional life making a difference. You can check all the postcards sent to Chris here.
Maybe you’d like to share your own thoughts on these two important questions. Check out what it’s all about here and send in your own postcard. Your thoughts and ideas may inspire others out there.
