What are you doing on 10th October?

Thursday 8th October, 2009

The 10th October has been nominated as Common Purpose 360 Day - and there is an invitation for all to do one thing, big or small, to challenge the way you see the world...

The day is inspired by a quote from Einstein: “We can't solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them.”

The call is to get people to think differently - by getting a different perspective. Their website suggests you could: * ask 3 people who live outside your area what their impressions are of it * go to a meeting or an event that you, and others who know you, would consider it unlikely for you to attend * meet someone who is actively campaigning or fighting for a change in your business or community * take yourself out for a cup of coffee/tea, sit for five minutes and reflect on your personal brand

It could be something on your own, or with others; simple or involved; online or face-to-face; local or international; something that takes you to an unfamiliar environment; something you wouldn't normally do. It’s up to you.

See what you get out of the experience - it may be a new insight into your world, or a solution to a problem you face. You may find some help and expertise from someone, somewhere or something that you didn't expect.

Why not visit the new-look 360 website for more suggestions from Common Purpose and to see examples from last year’s 360 Day?
