Not Impossible seeks out the “absurdities” of the world and sets out to fix them. Where do you tend to find those absurdities? The news? Walking around town? Or do people come to you?
Here at Not Impossible, we like to say that we find an absurdity and then decide to revolt against it. We get our ideas from everywhere that you mentioned, the news, hearing a story from a friend, etc. That is the key to our innovation, identifying what really needs changing. An artist that can’t move? That has no canvas on which to express himself? That’s absurd. A boy in war-torn Sudan gets his arms blown off and wishes he were dead so he won’t be a burden to his family? That’s just not right. These things shouldn’t be. This can apply to your daily work, too. Look for the absurd around you. Is that weekly conference call with a dozen people really making an impact? Whatever it is, you’ll know it, because you’ll feel the passion burn in your belly. If you can’t stop thinking about it, then you have the passion to do something about it. Don’t ignore that feeling. Act!
