A collection of concepts
This section contains a collection of concepts in various phases - from the idea to create something, changing in to a project to be carried out.
At some time the word “Leaf” popped into my mind as a symbol for the “idea” - as a leaf in the book of life or a leaf of a tree: That I am like a tree and the leaves are the ideas, thoughts, that I have over time.
Some of the leaves start off as a bud, and then furl out into large leafs, or into a bunch of leaves or sprout into a branch, offering refugium for wild life. Others never seem to grow. Then there are those that get old, and like autumn leaves, get brown and fall off. Every now and again a slug might sit on one, or they get eaten up by other creations of nature :-). Some leaves seem to withstand the winds and winters of time waiting for the summery warmth of the sun.
Some of the ideas I get just seem to pop up - and so surprisingly that I have to laugh - and then I get the impulse to write it down, with the feeling that I should be doing something with it.
Sometimes ideas come in bits and pieces and over time they fit together like a big jigsaw puzzle.
This section contains some of them where I have given them a structure. Some have turned out to be big ideas - like the leaves on the top of tall tree - for some unreachable. I often have an internal dialogue i.e. the Ego is saying “what a waist of time”, with the emotions of frustration - with the entrepreneur part of me pulling its hair out, and the rational logic short circuiting. However something else in me says carry on, and that’s why they are here - perhaps they can be used - or the thoughts have already gone viral in the collective consciousness and somebody else is building something similar.
Most of the ideas listed here are to do with empowering people, changing their mindsets, to a better life, creating synergy, infrastructures, jobs, creating a better world.
Some examples are TreeVive to facilitate tree growth around the planet, ChooseDay to establish a social evening for personal growth, Pulse to create a pulse of empathy around the world, NICE2 to create a standard in international etiquette or how we daily react with people, and to round it up °Unity as a global curating and orchestration service. Each can make a profound impact on our lives and society in general.
But they are useless without people, money and drive. That is why I have decided to open some of them up as they are now - to inform others and see what happens.
If you want to join me let me know.
