My good friend and colleague, Ron Schultz, who is, among other things, a tireless advocate for the cause of social entrepreneurialism, has written a wonderful column on Applied Chutzpah, which he defines as,
“A willingness to step forward into audacious action even though one may have no idea how one will either pull it off, or where it will ultimately lead. The only real knowing at the moment of Applied Chutzpah is an intuition that if some audacious action were not initiated, nothing would get done.” (Please download the whole article here).
And in that spirit of Applied Chutzpah, Ron has launched The International Social Action Film Festival, which will commence in locations all around the world on September 11, 2008–and if either you or someone you know is an aspiring film maker, you still have time to submit your work!
It’ll be an event that promises to inspire chutzpah, audacity, and Extreme Leadership in all who attend.
