All big things in this world are done by people who are naive
and have an idea that is obviously impossible.
-Dr. Frank Richards, submitted by Linn W., Milwaukee WI
If you have an apple and I have an apple
and we exchange these apples
then you and I will still each have one apple.
But if you have an idea and I have an idea
and we exchange these ideas,
then each of us will have two ideas.
-George Bernard Shaw, submitted by Laurie S., La Grange IL
Seek out a creative soul and invite them to snack with you or chat on the phone to brainstorm exciting possibilities for a tiny or humongous challenge you are facing. Spend 5 minutes being outrageously, courageously creative, and then offer them another 5 minutes to seek a fresh idea for her/him.
I assure you it can be delicious and nutritious!
p.s. Thanks to some awesome Ripplers, we raised an additional $1,000 for the Central Asia Institute…I sent donors a postcard but forgot to mention that we’ll be matching that $1,000 which means that together we raised over $8,000 for CAI! Way to share, Ripplers!
