Ideas, Young Life

(30 days of ideas) – Week 4

“Spend your time coming up with better ideas.” -Seth Godin

day (22)What Could You Live Without? My dad sent me this article from the NY Times about a 14 year old girl’s crazy idea that her family actually followed through on.  As a result, my parents may be moving soon : )

day (23) – Last night we had a special Young Life + PostSecret Club.  It was amazing!  I’ll be posting more about it this week, but if you don’t know about the PostSecret Project phenomenon, it’s time you join in!  Go to www.postsecret.com to learn more.  And here’s a great video that will fill you in on some details.

day (24)Reality (this is one of my absolute faves):

A guy is riding in the first-class cabin of a train in Spain and to his delight, he notices that he’s sitting next to Pablo Picasso.  Gathering up his courage, he turns to the master and says, “Senor Picasso, you are a great artist, but why is all your art, all modern art, so screwed up?  Why don’t you paint reality instead of these distortions?

“Picasso hesitates for a moment and asks, “So what do you think reality looks like?”

The man grabs his wallet and pulls out a picture of his wife.  “Here, like this.  It’s my wife.”

Picasso takes the photograph, looks at it, and grins.  “Really?  She’s very small.  And flat, too.”

day (25) Her Morning Elegance: a really fun and playful music video that encapsulates simple beauty and creativity.

day (26) – 2010 FREE Museum Days in Chicago.  Find out when/where here and then go explore, wonder, see, and experience…for free!

day (27)More Cowbell.  The famous and hilarious SNL skit that teaches us if you’re going to do something, do it with all you’ve got!

day (28) – T.S. Eliot says it all,

“Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go.”
