New video: ‘Launching’ The Power of Just Doing Stuff

Today is the day of the publication of The Power of Just Doing Stuff.  I’d like to mark this historic occasion by presenting you with this short video of the recent poignant and moving launch event we recently held with the Mayor of Totnes to welcome the book into the world. Please put in Facebook, Twitter, whatever, and share it around.  Do join me between 4 & 5pm (BST) for our Twitter Q&A (#doingstuff).

Comments are now closed on this site, please visit Rob Hopkins' blog at Transition Network to read new posts and take part in discussions.

Perhaps that was the launch of the Power of Drowning Stuff?

Right, well that was certainly an innovative launch! When my copy arrives, I’m afraid I will be taking a more conventional approach and sharing it with my friends via drier pathways…
Can’t wait!

The Power of Just Doing Stuff (in pumpkins)

If your idea does not work at first, fold it in half and try again.

A small orange metaphor, with half an inch of freeboard, held afloat by hope, willpower and helpless laughter.

Mythical comedy, a new genre is born.

Godbless the pumpkin floaters.
