We could live in a country powered entirely by renewable energy, woven together by accessible public transit, in which the opportunities of this transition are designed to eliminate racial and gender inequality. Caring for one another and caring for the planet could be the economy’s fastest growing sectors. Many more people could have higher-wage jobs and fewer working hours, leaving us ample time to enjoy our loved ones and flourish in our communities.

The Leap Manifesto
exciting creative enterprise
All creative enterprise begins by imagining the possibilities. We create possibilities we imagine.
Exploring our imagination
We imagine our lives. It is how we see the world. It is our story as we see it. We create our imagination of how things are and how things could be. We create into our imagination. We create our story with our imagination.
Our imagination excites interest and enterprise. Exploring the contribution of our imagination, how we create with our imagination, and how we excite our imagination contributes to creating possibilities for our world.
Stories, however told, excite our imagination. Stories are where dreams are created. Stories are how we create possibilities.
We create connections and relationships in what we see and how we see things, in how we learn, in how we think and in how we imagine and create.
We create connections and relationships with what we say and do and how we say and do things. In our creative expression and creative contribution. We create possibilities as creative contributors to the communities of interest we are part of and part of creating. We choose the communities we contribute to creating.
Our world is how we imagine things are, – how we see things, – and how we imagine things could be. Creating possibilities is imagining how we could create what could be. Creating our world is imagining our possibilities, and imagining our ideas, and imagining how we could create possibilities.
We could imagine a creative process and a way of seeing and doing things that contributes to making it possible to imagine and excite creative enterprise as a community around our individual, community, and common human interests. We communicate what we imagine through our stories. We create the stories we imagine.
Imagining and creating possibilities as a community requires an ability to create connections with one another. What contributes to creative enterprise? What contributes to community enterprise? What contributes to creating possibilities? What could we do to excite our interest, our imagination, and our creative contribution to the creative experience?
What do we choose to imagine and create? What do we choose to contribute to creating? What roles do we choose to imagine and create for ourselves? What do we imagine? What could happen? What could we do?
Creating a future for our world
Our reality, our world as we know it, is how we imagine things are. Our ability to create possibilities is how we imagine things could be and what we could do.
