At this point in my life where many changes are taking place and new paths begin to be trodden it is absolutely natural to take stock of the road round. Calm! Nothing “retrospective” moment – even because we still have a few weeks ahead for the end of 2017 …. But put yourself in my shoes and think a just a little bit: the scenario of a bad crisis, economy frozen, jobs and projects just vanished. Isn´t that natural think of what to do, right? Natural that person who writes you to get your bags and, once again (still good!), Go to the United Arab Emirates! What for? To help a great friend – and a group of friends indirectly – and also to explore, discover and see what is really going on in one of the most surreal places in the world and who simply decided to create an innovation and sustainability agenda for the whole country!

Because after so much time hearing stories about so many things, people and places I realized that everything in life begins with an idea …

 

At that moment the inevitable connection: there you go (I mean, there I go) once more walk around to find out …. Stories! Yes, that is it! In the background I’ve always been a guy who likes stories: stories of places, stories of people, stories of cultures, stories of things, stories of food … Actually, stories in general, without much focus. It is a direct consequence of a curious mind, very curious indeed! BINGO! That´s the beginning of IDEIA DE IMPACTO (Impact Idea) that is officially born in this year of 2017 but that brings many miles and time of listening and collecting stories way before that! And, why IDEIA DE IMPACTO? Because after so much hearing stories about so many things, people and places I realized that everything in life begins with an idea: having an idea we use our stories (references, elements, repertoires, etc., etc.) that all combined will generate solutions, paths, alternatives – in what  a bunch of people (and myself included), call COMBINACTION – to change, to improve, to advance, to generate new things, new contexts, new paths, new alternatives that, in some way, will reverberate in a person life, a family, a group, a community, a city….

 

So this is it: IDEIA DE IMPACTO combines the two elements of this crazy process when an IDEA generates an IMPACT and in the middle of all this we find this this cauldron missing all the elements.

So this is it: IDEIA DE IMPACTO combines the two elements of this crazy process when an IDEA generates an IMPACT and in the middle of all this we find this this cauldron missing all the elements. And to be able of all that, which were the elements of IDEIA DE IMPACTO embryo I have decided to adopt the COMBINACTIVITY in a new (?) way: to combine stories (with all the elements and “et cetra” I have mentioned above), people, organizations, networks that sharing, creating, working together could design, develop and deploy solutions that generate impacts (remember the path?  idea + stories + solutions + impact).

 

No, I’m not going to be the protagonist of these stories! People, places, smells, things, solutions, paths, combinations are the real protagonists. My role is to be just a STORY EXPORTER! Welcome to IMPACT IDEA!

 

Here and in other social media channels and networks you will be able to follow these stories together with me. Stories about incredible people I have met, about surprisingly amazing places I’ve visited, about solutions that have been built and thought by one or many, about past and future, about  get your hands dirty stories ! And, if we are lucky enough, we are going to experience this whole thing! No, I’m not going to be the protagonist of these stories! People, places, smells, things, solutions, paths, combinations are the real protagonists. My role is to be just a STORY EXPORTER! Welcome to IMPACT IDEA!
