Here’s a 5-step recipe for leading a community I learned from Seth Godin.
But first, let’s clarify two important things:
You don’t need to take any permission from anyone for leading a community and second, “fear” will always be there when leading a community. So, learn to live with it.
Your fear should not override your passion to lead.
Now, let’s focus on the main thing, the recipe for leading:
Step 1: You must have faith in your idea. Because that faith will ignite your passion, making you overwhelmed with the need to share it with another human being.
Step 2: Find another human and share the idea with him/her.
Step 3: If that human feels connected with your idea, ask him/her to share it with others.
Step 4: Find another human being, share your passion/idea again, and put him/her in contact with the person you found in the previous step.
Step 5: Repeat the process from step 3.
Pause for a moment.
This recipe is invalid or can leftover paper if you don’t have:-
Vision and Passion. Work on them before you start leading.
If you already have these two, Congratulation! you're ready to lead!
