Finding inspiration

We all have glimpses of inspiration. What’s yours? Try acting on it in small ways each day to begin the building process toward the world’s next big idea, like Twitter or Facebook.  I saw the movie The Social Network this weekend with my son, and I remain impressed by the theme on how one person’s passion created a billion dollar business.  In case you aren’t familiar with it, it’s a story of the founder of Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg, and two lawsuits he found himself facing with the success of the social networking site. I get the impression from the movie that it wasn’t Mark’s initial intention to make money from the site, but to create an online social platform.  But get this, he was inspired through anger and frustration (and some jealousy), and today we have Facebook, the largest social networking tool.  Wow! 

Even if your inspiration doesn’t lead to a billion dollar business, it may lead to a way to change lives, and that is PRICELESS.   So be inspired and write down your thoughts!  You never know where it may lead you.
