Have you reinvented yourself, or started a movement?

Seth Godin, Sir Ken Robinson and Derek Sivers all talk about the potential we have to effect the change we want and start something that attracts attention and gets followed. I believe this too, but I'd love to hear from people who've done it. What was it you changed, and why? What struggles did you have and how did you overcome them? And what lies ahead for you?

    May 30 2011: I feel like I'm re-inventing myself everyday, every week, every month. As a musician, I seek out new ideas for songs, new ways of interpreting them. As an entrepreneur, I'm always looking for a better way to manage my team, for fundraising, for product development and as a TEDx organizer my team looks to me to lead them in new and exciting directions. Of course, being a catalyst for change comes with the obvious pitfalls : lack of funds, lack of commitment from others, intellectual fatigue and the BIGGEST problem ? Lack of TIME.
