Big decisions – Day 45/139

This was again a day to remember!

In the morning I met with a group of great people who shared my passion for the project we’re working with. Two possible alternatives were discussed:

  1. Playing it safe
  2. Doing it big

Surprisingly we chose to pursue the latter strategy. The exact details are still open but I can already say that we will have a nationwide impact in the Finnish people during the spring.

Later in the day I contacted two people whom I know to be true professionals in their respective fields. I got really good feedback. The strategic decision we made in the morning makes our project just too awesome to ignore.

In the evening I participated in an event called the Aalto Social Impact. The project we’re working with is strongly social, ethical and ecological so it was well suited to be presented in this event. Although it clearly wasn’t the point of this particular event, I asked a permission to pitch my idea to the public and I have to say it became my best pitch so far.

All this takes our idea forward.

Having worked towards a single goal for over a month, it is increasingly easier to answer the obvious questions that our pitch raises in people. If our idea was easy to implement someone would obviously have done it a long time ago.

It all comes down to getting the users realize the awesomeness of helping each other.

The international day of awesomeness – Day 29/139

To commemorate the completion of our awesome business plan, people have decided to start celebrating The International Day of Awesomeness on March 10th.

Now, isn’t this just awesome?

What is even more awesome is that the team worked long hours to get the best possible result for this milestone.

Why is this project awesome?

I can tell you this. This project is not awesome because it will bring in huge amounts of money. It is awesome because of the people that are a part of it. As it says on the project website:

No one’s perfect, but everyone can be awesome.

Why do people want to be ordinary when they could be awesome for at least one day every year? My personal experience has shown that the more awesome things are the happier it makes me to be a part of them.
