So I still think this is on the low side, but it is save to say that OVER 1 MILLION IDEAS have rippled out of Eva’s 1 idea to create Catalyst Ranch.
(Okay, okay, you are saying ideas would have been generated too if they had been at a boring hotel conference center too… but really, we all know it would not have been as many or as good of quality. I mean, let’s get real. A boring hotel conference room would be lucky if it could generate half the ideas.)
Even if only 1% of those ideas generated were followed up on and implemented in the world, that is 11,880 direct actions and impacts on the world from 1. One idea and one woman who had the courage to take action and follow her inspiration. For that, I and the world say, “Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!”
But lets take this a ripple further
Let’s blow our minds a little more here and look at how those ideas are rippling out into the world:
IF 11,880 ideas have been acted upon,
and let’s say they have a TENTH of the impact Eva’s one idea had, that is… 1,188 more ideas based off of each of those individual ideas,
so, 11,880 first degree ideas put into action, times 1,188 second degree ideas = 14,113,440 MORE ideas in the second ripple of influence
Okay, so let’s say 1% of those ideas are followed up on, that = 141,134 ACTED upon ideas.
THINK ABOUT HOW THIS KEEPS RIPPLING OUT INTO THE WORLD! In just one more ripple out… my calculator can not even display the number. It is absolutely awe inspiring the phenomenally positive influence of creative ideas that one idea and one woman has had on the world.
Doesn’t that just make you want to go out and act on your one idea? So on this 11 year anniversary let’s raise a glass to Eva, say, “Thank you!” from the bottom of our hearts and follow her inspiration once more and act on YOUR one idea. Let’s see the ripple you can let loose in the world!
And once again, “Thank you, Eva, for the ripple you have created!”
