    I have created a statement to describe what my general concept is about. I still hope to shorten it a bit. The general concept will include a website/blog, a series of e-courses and a possibly a podcast. Please let me know how this lands with you. Does it intrigue you or scare you away? Does it seem like a relavent and important topic or a bunch of hype? What images and feeling come up for you? What would you want to get from a experience on this topic?  Please be honest, all thoughts are welcome!

    I am considering using this as a header for a survey I am putting out to my community. Any thoughts on that idea would be great as well.

    Our mission and vision is to Innovate Changing World Solutions that help people, families, communities and businesses navigate and thrive in changing times. Our job is to cut through the overwhelming amount of information and produce content and strategies that are easy for you to implement and adapt in your life now. To give you piece of mind that you are not just pushing these major issues under the rug, but being proactive and setting yourself up for success. And we make it easy!

    The world and the way we as a species lives upon it is changing rapidly. From technological advancements to emerging antibiotic resistant bacteria and super bugs, to a economic system where fewer people have savings and people often find themselves working harder and feeling busier just to stay a float. Many of the 100 year predictions of climate change are now anticipated to effect most of the world in the next 30 years. Many people expect government to solve all these problems. I work in the field and can tell you from the inside that governments are not nearly as prepared as many wish them to be.

    Changing World Project recognizes that the threats listed above are real,  but we believe in choosing EMPOWERMENT over fear, being PROACTIVE over reactive, choosing ACTION over complacency and that being POSITIVE, GRATEFUL and INNOVATIVE is our best way forward.

    From new ways to look at retirement savings and earning income, to being ready to adapt and protect yourself and family in an extreme weather events and other emergency situations, This is our work, vision and service to the world.

    The scope of this vision is large and we can’t do it alone. It will take a community to innovate the way forward.

Please take a few moments to contribute to the solution and as a fun bonus will enter you in a draw for some great prizes.

    Hey Chris,

    For what it’s worth, I took a swipe at editing your vision statement.

    My version came out like this –

    Our mission is to help individuals, families, communities and businesses navigate and thrive in rapidly changing times.

    Our job is to produce content, communication, and life strategies that are easy for you to implement and adopt now.

    The world is changing rapidly, on every front. We live in a time of profound technological advancements, and also emerging antibiotic resistant bacteria. The world is governed by an economic system where fewer people have savings and people often find themselves working harder and feeling busier just to stay afloat. Many of the 100 year predictions of climate change are now anticipated to effect most of the world in the next 30 years.

    Many people expect government to solve all these problems. Changing World Project recognizes that the threats listed above are real, but we believe in choosing INDIVIDUAL EMPOWERMENT over fear, being PROACTIVE over reactive, choosing ACTION over complacency and that being POSITIVE and INNOVATIVE is our best way forward.

    From new ways to look at retirement savings and earning income, to being ready to adapt and protect yourself and family in an extreme weather events and other emergency situations.

    – I hope that’s helpful to you.

    Hi Chris,

    I think it’s a great idea.

    It made me think about the resources we have available in the UK and how they fall short in supporting people in these changing times. So many people are full of fear in the UK right now following a vote to leave the European Union.

    I have a client who just this week contacted me because they are feeling completely overwhelmed with changes to the way the benefits system works here. This is causing her huge stress that is exacerbating her already challenging physical symptoms.

    I know those examples are UK specific but my point is I see a real need for this kind of support in the work right now.

    Anything you can do to support people in these changing times, to empower them away from the fear is a great thing. People are missing community too and I’m finding that this is something that can be created online.

    A creative way to do that would be awesome!

    Also love the way Hardy has articulated your thoughts.

    Looking forward to hearing more.

    Hey Chris, this is awesome and I know after with everything shared on our coaching call today that the next version is gonna be even more on point. As Andy and I shared earlier, say more with less. How can you be even more clear, potent and precise with your word-smith’isms?

    Hardy, you rock for taking the time to help a brother out. Great edit suggestions. Can’t wait for an update on your course too!

    Hi Chris,

    I believe that this is a (the) topic for our times. We are clearly at the cusp of major transitions and the way we approach them will literally determine our fate. So in answer to your question, it’s not a bunch of hype to me or something that scares me off.

    I also think it’s really important to emphasize positive attributes and that’s exactly what you do. There’s way too much ‘build your bunker and slam down the door’ stuff out there and that does no-one any good. It’s vital for us to build communities of hope rather than fear, resilience rather than rage and retribution.

    I think Hardy’s edit is great. It might be good to pull out the ‘we believe’ statement too, as that goes to the heart of it and it’s a bit buried.

    we believe in

    choosing INDIVIDUAL EMPOWERMENT over fear
    being PROACTIVE over being reactive
    choosing ACTION over complacency
    and that being POSITIVE and INNOVATIVE is our best way forward.
    Or something along those lines. I agree with Brad’s post too – you want to achieve a balance between inspiring them to do the survey but not putting them off with too much text up front.

    I’d be interested to hear an update about the responses you get to the survey too. Great job.

    Hey Penny, by saying “pulling out” the “we believe in” part. Did you mean get rid of it or emphazising it more? I think I could take your comment either way by the way it was written.

    Thanks

    I meant pull out as in emphasize – I think focusing on the positive is a key message and thought it was a bit buried in the text.

    Apologies for not being clear!
