The Magic Jam – A Recipe for Changing the World

You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete. – Buckminster Fuller

Sandwich Party Sunday is designed, more than anything, to be a movement:

Have a party, make sandwiches & take them to the streets with love!

It’s organically growing and as new people become a part of it, new ideas and new paths emerge. This being the case, it’s necessary to constantly re-evaluate.

Lately I’ve been reflecting on how things have happened so far and contemplating the next moves. In doing so, I’ve been revisiting the fundamentals.

At the core of what we do is a formula that I believe, if perfected and properly executed, can change the world.

I’m sure it’s not original and I consider it open-source, public property and a work in progress.

With all these things in mind, I challenge everyone who’s a part of Sandwich Party Sunday or any other movement for positive change, to consider these three elements. I believe that changing the world comes down to dialing in these three elements with the right frequency, volume and timbre; In just the right amounts and with proper intent:

Fun, Sustainability, Community

Fun: fun puts an energy behind what we’re doing that makes it spreadable. Chores don’t go viral. Fun does.

The better we feel, the better we make others feel.

Sustainability: No one needs to overextend themselves. It’s counter-productive in the bigger picture. There’s a sweet spot to hit. The place where you’ve given something meaningful without impeding your ability to do so again in the future. If you’re inspired to give more than you comfortably can, then the best move is to involve others.

Community: We can do so much more in community than we can alone. When we unite as a community with the pure intent to serve the greater good, then a natural order emerges. We give our most powerful gifts, our egos take a back seat, we become better leaders and better followers and we’re better able to give and receive guidance.

The first, most fundamental way to create community is to get to know each other’s names. The more names you know the more community you have. Get to know the names of the people you serve and the people you serve with.

So what can we do to make what we’re doing more fun, more sustainable and more of a community experience? I believe that if we ask these questions with clear, powerful intent that we’ll find the answers we’re looking for.
