Achieving Together was developed as a movement by and for community. Achieving Together partners shared one word to express what Achieving Together means to them. The words were used to create a poem that captures the spirit of the Achieving Together movement. (The words in capital letters were the words that were spoken by the Achieving Together partners.)
A MOVEMENT begins
in that ONE IMPROBABLE moment
when HOPE DISRUPTS what came before,
when POSSIBILITIES become
more POWERFUL than STRUCTURE,
and a VISIONARY GOAL
becomes the FOCUS
IF YOU BELIEVE, YOU ARE HALFWAY THERE.
HOPE gathers STEAM through
The IMPACT of LISTENING is CONNECTION.
The SUCCESS of INCLUSION is EQUITY.
FINALLY, the SYNERGY of DIVERSITY and UNITY.
The ACCOMPLISHMENT lies not in the INNOVATION
but in the CONNECTION
and PROGESSion of a COMMUNITY,
in ALLEGIANCE to PROGRESS,
a TIMELY, HOPEful CHANGE.
In this TED Talk, Derek Sivers playfully explores how to start a movement in less than 3 minutes. Enjoy!
