Three Topics I Follow to Change My Focus

Sometimes progress isn’t something that anyone can measure in the passage of days, but more in the way that thoughts, ideas, and opinions shift over time. Right now, I’m looking at the simple things – the ways that I speak my concerns, talk about various issues, and think about the big picture. But I’m also following three hashtags on Twitter that keep me thinking about what’s going on in the world outside of me.

  1. #BeTheChange: With various quotes, with motivational messages, and observations focused on making an effort to change and impact the world, this is a daily dose of wanting to create something better.
  2. #ISWU: It Starts with Us is a simple concept – and an amazing effort. This feed lets me see what others are doing, and keeps me in the loop on Drop a Love Bomb and Love Drop efforts.
  3. #PayItForward Based on the theory of the movie and novel of the same name, the concept is simple: a bunch of folks on Twitter talking about what they’re doing to change the world, one small step – without the expectation of something in return – at a time.

If you use Tweetdeck, following along is a matter of adding another column. If you just want to check it out, use search.twitter.com. Want to add a feed to a reader? You can add one using the RSS feed from Twitter’s search function as well.
