End Malaria Spread the Possibility Virus Instead…

A while back in my Journeys podcast series, I had a great and entertaining conversation with Michael Bungay-Stanier. He’s a fantastic coach and I use his Possibility Arrow tool from his book, “Do More Great Work”, often – with myself and with my coaching clients.

Now Michael has launched a new book, with a different focus. He says he wanted to make more of an impact and End Malaria is the result: “When I was thinking about my Great Work Project, I thought about having an impact at a global scale. That was fairly overwhelming, but I did some research and found that $10–the cost of a mosquito net–is the cheapest unit of global change. Malaria is a scourge–a child dies of it every 45 seconds–and nowhere more so than in Africa. For $10, you can save lives. I thought I could try and raise $10 per book. (And of course, we’re actually raising twice that.)”

Just now, I finally stopped meaning to get round to it (after 2 weeks of doing so) and actually went onto Amazon and bought a copy, tweeted a link and now, I’m writing this post… I just realised that hopefully I’ve contributed enough to buy not 1, but 2 mosquito nets… I feel like I’ve done something really worth doing.

What if you did too?

Somewhat self-centeredly, then I’d feel even better (thanks!) – and so would Michael and so would all the other 1000s of people involved so far.

So please Spread the Possibility Virus to as many of your friends as possible and help End Malaria now.

If you could spread the word, that would be great – post/share this link:

If you could buy a book from Amazon, that would be even better:
