I’ve had this goal on my list for a long time, so when the “personal challenge” feature came out – I thought, “why not challenge myself to accomplish this one”?
My original vision for my junto group was a broad (8-12) group of people who would set aside an evening for intellectual exploration and maybe some port. But then I stalled.
Why? I love discussing ideas. I need to get away from the house and talk with other adults. Folks volunteered to help host it and people came out of the woodwork to say they’d like to join. But I kept stalling.
I decided the delay was because I’d let the idea get too grand. And so instead of starting boldly and fearing I can’t meet expectations I’m going to start small, with just 4 people including myself. I’ve selected a particular topic that has personal interest to all of us, and 3 of the 4 have already committed to making it. I think with this group I’ll describe the broader idea of the junto and see if there is interest in growing it.
Thanks to all the folks that showed an interest in my junto group. I hope to grow it into something that can meet everybody’s expectations.
