What’s Next for The Mighty Minds Club? (2 of 3)

  • Mighty Minds is shifting to a paid community, with a bunch of perks (just scan the headlines, below) for people who want to make and share ‘things to think with’ 🧰
  • There’s a survey I’d LOVE for you to complete! ♥️ [NOTE: If you’re reading this on Medium, I’ll keep this survey open until the end of December 2020]

“The world always seems brighter when you’ve just made something that wasn’t there before.” — Neil Gaiman

Aside from the personal satisfaction of working with our hands, we also learn better when we make things, when we take an active part in the construction of knowledge. Accordingly, this new community will focus on activities and actions (ahead of content). More output to go along with the input. Of all the shifts, this is the one I’m most excited and anxious about. Next week, I’ll share more details about this one point, but essentially, I’m imagining a bunch of us opting into small groups to work on monthly or quarterly challenges. Some of these will be media focused, such as “make a card deck” while others will address a complex topics such as ‘handling difficult conversations’ ‘challenges with remote working’ or or ‘dealing with uncertainty’. Again, a focus on making and sharing things to think with.

  • This 8 second video shared on twitter shows what it is like to simply be. Or, as one person commented: To be “fully present, with no regrets about the past, no dread or anxiety about the future, no sense that [we] ought to be somewhere else or be doing something else, no worry about wasting time — just being, etc.” Enjoy!
