We’ve been given a great gift that we would like to share with you. It’s made a real difference in our lives and maybe it can with you too.
Step 1: get a group of people together around a table. From 8-10 people. It can be your friends- but what’s even cooler if there are people you don’t know there. Or people you would normally never associate with.
Step 2: Everyone write down something you would like to give on one piece of paper. And your name.
Step 3: Write down something you would like to have on another piece of paper. And your name.
Step 4: Put it all together in the bowl.
Now you could go on with the game…. But what is also cool to do is a performance gift!!
Ok. Draw a piece of paper out of the bowl. Agathe wants to give tip on where to go in Berlin. Anybody need an idea? Jared wants time… Let Jared explain himself. Ok who at the table can help him? Remember you can ask for anything!!!! Big small concrete abstract. Be yourself and most importantly- ask from your heart.
Anyone can do it! Do it in your living room, the nursing home with some old folks, in the park, in the school. If you want- you can call it Social Muscle Club and join our network. People started Social Muscle Club in 10 cities internationally so far. You can even join up with them!
In our city-wide clubs we often do this with 100 or more people. So if you can’t ask people at your table you will have the chance to ask the whole room!
This is about universal acceptance, expressing what you need and what you have to give, and finally cutting through the burocracy of life and helping each other out in the most direct way possible. You can also have a really good time.
