Inspired by Andrew Gan's discussion post about generating ideas together I have decided to create a series of discussions which will be titled: ThinkTank. The goal is for people who are interested, to share and discuss their ideas with the group.
This weeks topic is gaining perspective. Mission #1 was all about seeing/understanding the other side; imagining what life would be like to live on 2$ a day--to be poor to be hungry to not have clean water. I as a well to do middle class white American male, I can try and imagine what it would be like, but I know that imagining isn't enough. For me to truly understand, I need to feel it. I know that my position isn't unique so how can we gain perspective, I have some answers but I want to see what other people have to say first.
