Helping people who are less fortunate. I feel if you have been through hardship in your life it’s only fair to not let someone else suffer in the same way. This is also true for employment.
An idea worth spreading would be something that allows all involved to benefit. Something that allows us all to integrate, help out and enjoy. The state of society now under all of these economic austerity measures is creating a lot of selfishness and individuality. We need to come together as a community and share expertise, ideas and love. The idea is simple we must help those who struggle in their field of work by understanding there learning styles, personality and allowing them to grow as people. Sharing knowledge is fundamental to any growth in the community. Talking from personal experience I have found that certain people don’t want to share how to do things, e.g. creating FTP access on a Linux server. Surely if this skill was documented and conveyed to everyone in a non-patronising manner the community would grow?
Learning and development IT related things such as programming? Web technologies? and generally being able to help people.
Repairing hardware such as Xbox360, decorating? Simply because I never fully get the opportunity to try new things. We're led to believe one must be good at what he/she has graduated in?
A friend of mine sent me a video where the speaker was saying children when they grow up are led to believe that going to University and getting a degree will lead to happiness and prosperity. Little did I know I wasn’t one of them? I feel my passion for computers/technology is there but slowly being in industry and my current role is driving the passion into the ground. This is why I find myself in TED.com to see if I can find like minded individuals that can help me reignite the flame. I also don't envision myself sitting down in an office all day. There has to be more to life than just working in this manner just for a pay packet? As a person i want to give back to the community and help people.
