It only takes one person to start a movement, and other lessons

Tom Gross, from Barn Door Hardware, shared a very interesting video clip in his quarterly newsletter. After watching it several thoughts/lessons came to mind:

  1. It only takes one person to start a movement.
  2. This is a very visual way of watching the “adoption of innovation” occur from pioneers and innovators to the early majority and some to the late majority. The laggards never got involved, but then the whole thing lasted less than four minutes.
  3. While there are no comments to suggest it, the whole thing could have been “staged” by using a few “plants” to get the movement going. Maybe, maybe not, but the result was the same.
  4. It takes a whole lot less “structure” than you think to get teams to work together. Especially if they are self-selecting teams.

How can you take advantage of these ideas in your personal or business life?
