I’m taking a much needed break over the next 3 weeks. My eyes have been very sore and are stressed to the point that I need to wear glasses for a while to ‘reset them’, according to the doctor.

This is the product of working very hard on Like Minds Helsinki, launching the Like Minds Club, doing more and more consulting with Aaron+Gould, doing A LOT with Touch 10 and really raising the media standard at The River Dream Centre, and also putting together the main parts of Like Minds Conference, Autumn 2010.

I’ve done more in the last 4 months than I have in any whole year before and I certainly feel that (with my sincere thanks to Michael Meyers, Drew Ellis and Robin Dickinson in particular), I have sharpened my focus, developed a stronger NO in order to have a stronger YES, and really built things of value.

So it is with joy that I now take a much needed break, but at the same time I know I will miss engaging with you all as much as I usually do.

What I will be doing is posting things here a few times a week that I’ve already lined up, and it is along this line that I have a request for you all, as my friends, peers, influencers, colleagues and brothers and sisters: Connect with each other in these comments.

Let me check in every few days and find that you’ve gotten to know each other more — that those of you who haven’t commented and have come and shared your much valued views — and that those of you who normally only comment on the post and not other’s comments have found new joy in discussing issues with one another.

And finally, let me come back to hear that you’ve scaled the levels of communication — that you’ve emailed, skyped, collaborated and even met up with one another — and created more valuable relationships.

I’ll catch you soon,

    Have a good break Scott, I’ve just returned from mine and after an initial shock of getting back ‘into it’ feel refreshed and ready to go again. I’m sure you’ll feel the same. I look forward to keeping in the loop on your posts and hope to connect with “likeminded” individuals.

    Keep smiling

    I’m probably more thankful about your hiatus than you are! At least now I can concentrate on my dissertation instead of getting dragged in daily to your web of knowledge and discussion and – dare I say it – developing ecosystem!! ;)

    Stay fresh x
