I’m throwing my hat over the fence on a big, very cool project, and I hope you’ll join me for the adventure.
Tomorrow marks the beginning of my 52-in-52 Project. Over the next 52 weeks, I will interview 52 people with the insights and experience to inform and inspire the Ripple Revolutionary in all of us. The interviews will be with subject matter experts and people out there creating ripples and making waves.
The 30 minute interviews will be delivered to the masses (that is to say, y’all) via The Ripple Revolution Podcast, which launches tomorrow. My plan is to post the first three on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday, and then post a new one each week.
So far I have interviewed:
- Byron Katie, best-selling author of Loving What is, I Need Your Love – Is That True?, and A Thousand Names for Joy, developer and facilitator of The Work.
- Brian Johnson, Philosopher & CEO at en*theos, author of A Philosopher’s Notes
- Kevin Salwen, co-author of The Power of Half (and formerly National Small Business Editor at the Wall Street Journal)
Upcoming interviews include:
- Howard Behar, former President of Starbuck’s and author of It’s Not About the Coffee
- Bill Strickland, author of Make the Impossible Possible, CEO of Manchester Bidwell Corporation, MacArthur genius grant recipient, presidential appointee to the board of the National Endowment for the Arts, and more (oh, and “incredibly inspiring guy”)
- Jennifer Louden, best-selling author of The Woman’s Comfort Book, The Life Organizer and more, speaker and teacher, and fellow Ripple Revolutionary sharing her Savor & Serve message with the world.
The interview-based podcast is something that has been percolating in my head for several years. I have been dragging my heels on doing anything about it – largely because of fear. Fear that I’ll suck at doing it. Fear that I won’t be able to get anyone to talk to me. Fear that I won’t be able to deliver what I say I’m going to deliver.
I finally committed to it a couple weeks ago, and I feel an amazing energy behind it. In the last week it has morphed from a still-somewhat-undefined podcast to a Project with a capital P. As I threw my hat over the fence with it on Facebook this morning, it evolved from a wordy “The Ripple Revolution Podcast 52 in 52 Project” to simply “The 52-in-52 Project.”
I love the idea of turning it from a podcast into an exciting project with a challenging goal. The project is starting to take on an identity of its own (in my own mind, if nothing else), and giving me something tangible both to dive into and to enroll others and be energized by their enthusiasm about it.
So stay tuned! It’s going to be an inspiring ride!
