Our next project

Thursday, August 02, 2007

It has been suggested that we do a "Master Mind" for our next project, and also that we continue to incorporate the idea of making the project more interactive. What was nice about the Gratitude Project was that each day, each post, contained within it a question to answer. This made it easier to think of what to say, or how to respond in an "active" way on the blog.

Daniel and I talked about it at length one night at work. What we came up with was this idea:

  1. First, get feedback from everyone as to what 10 things most represent prosperity to you.
  2. Spend 3 days on each thing.
  3. The first day we all say what it is that we would want for ourselves with regard to that specific thing... for example: Day one might be a car. I might say that I want my car to be reliable, in good working order, and paid off. Someone else might say that they want a Mercedes Benz in their driveway complete with chauffeur.
  4. The second day we all affirm for each other that what you want, you can have. We envision for each other on that second day. For example, "Melissa, I see you driving around town in your brand new Lexus. It is so cool that you were able to pay for it with the money from the sale of your first script." Stuff like that.
  5. On the third day we accept what has been affirmed for us, and we express our gratitude for it. For example, I might say: "I accept my good, I accept my awesome car that runs great and gets awesome gas mileage. Thank you so much for reliable transportation! Wow!"
  6. We do that for each of the 10 items on our "prosperity" list. The last one being a sort of "catch all" for anything that might have been "missed" previously. This would give us a full 30 days.
  7. On the day before day one, I will post a Master Mind script so that we can all get an idea of how it might look, and so that we are all on the "same page" and clear about the concept.
  8. Obviously, this will require daily active participation. More so than some of our other projects. Of course, a person could play "catch up" if need be. and that would be fine. However, it's not something that can be done alone. As you can see, it needs a group.
  9. We have a great group, and wouldn't it be nice to have even more people in it with us? As Melissa said on the Question of the Day, surrounding yourself with friends is a great way to do big (possibly scary) things.
  10. We also discussed the possiblity of spending a few days encouraging friends to join us on this one. So, if you have any friends or family who might be interested in giving it a try, please consider inviting them.

Ok, so what do you guys think? Any suggestions to make this an even better project? Any questions? concerns? comments? Shall we plan to start it on Monday to give us all a chance to talk family and/or friends into joining us for this one? Or should we just start on it tomorrow?

This sounds like a great plan! It seems very well-thought-out. I will participate! Let's start tomorrow! If people want to join us during the month, that's great - but it's not like we have to wait until they're ready. They can jump in any time. And thank you Shirley, I accept your affirmation of my Lexus and my script sale!!! :) With friends like you guys, who needs any other friends! Can I just clone all of you? LOL

I would prefer if we could start on Sunday or MOnday, since my work schedule would make it difficult for me to really take the time to make a list and get set before then.

I think starting Sunday or Monday is fine. I plan on letting the group know the weekend I'm out of town and don't have access to a computer so you know I didn't drop out. It's August 17-19 and I will post it again the day prior to being gone. Other than that, I INTEND to participate every day.

Melissa, I can already see you selling your script and driving around in that Lexus, too!
