Mick Ebeling, “Not Impossible: The Art and Joy of Doing What Couldn’t Be Done” | Talks at Google
have a process: commit. then figure it out.
i love to surround myself with people who make me feel stupid.
8 min – talking eyewriter
this was the launch for me of not impossible.. how can we take something that’s impossible for one person and make it possible..
you can’t name anything that was not impossible at one time… so impossible isn’t a question of if.. but of when
so… it’s about this sense of permission
once impossible becomes possible – it’s a sense of permission granted to everybody
15 min – talks Jack
it’s never about just one person
not impossible labs created to celebrate others doing incredible things
i spent most of my time trying to figure out how to get people to give me money rather than doing the things..
what happens if we got brands… that would want to tell the same message, ie: something that’s really truly changing the world..
32 min – at not impossible labs.. our theory is not ip.. our theory is to give it away..
incite/provoke this type of (sharing) change
33 min – doing good is good business… but also good branding.. matching up with corps who can get the word out… corps that have massive megaphones
critical to this – the power of story – most people don’t have buffet/gates resources.. so you can’t attack things like hunger…
36 min – what’s your story.. and who is your one.. what’s that invention.. who’s your daniel.. help one.. help many
our titles: ‘what they do’… not impossible, ie: walk.. not impossible
we’re a story telling company – based on technology for the sake of humanity
