Share Your Own IDC

March 6, 2012

As you may know, 4 months ago, Claudia and I started the IDC Project. We did this because we’ve realized how much what we do, say, and the decisions we make are influenced by what others may think (click here to learn more about the IDC Project).

We’ve received an incredible response to this project! Many people have shared with us how this project has challenged them and how they are now doing their own “uncomfortable situations.”

An Invitation:

Do your own IDC and you’ll have the opportunity to share it in your own IDC post!


– Activity is up to you. It can be as simple or as big as you like. It could be something like calling an estranged friend, speaking up when you disagree, or running with your shirt off. More exemples here.

– Sharing format is up to you. Written, video, or audio. It’s your choice. Write about what you did and what you learned from it. Shoot a video of you in action! Or, maybe with what you’re doing, just audio would make sense.

– Contact us. If you’d like to do your own IDC and have the opportunity to share it in your own IDC post, email us and let us know. Our email address is: feedback@wholeheartedhuman.com.

Keep in mind, “uncomfortable situations” are often unique to each person. You may think that others aren’t going to think that what you do is a big deal. Not so. If it is a big deal for you, it’s a big deal!

        Hey Michael and Claudia! I did something new a bit bit growing this week. Not huge, but definitely something I’ve put off for years and years! http://www.jasonvandehey.com/2012/03/growing-towards-a-vision-doing-something-new/

          Great post, Jason. I’d love it if you shared this for an IDC post! By the way, what you did was huge. Most people would have never done that.

            The great news, joining Toastmasters easily fits into my Mission as I fulfill my vision. Coolness!

            That’s awesome, Jason! It’s great that you’re taking the time to think about vision. Now you have a filter to put things through. That’s the beauty of FAA and Jonathan Pool’s material.

    Excellent project Michael…I have already started my list.

    • Reply Michael Good March 7, 2012 at 12:37 pm

      Great, Cindy! Looking forward to seeing it.

    • Reply jasonvandehey March 7, 2012 at 1:53 pm

      A list would be good. Of course then it would add credibility and I’d be obligated to do it! :J)

      • Reply Cindy Hirch March 7, 2012 at 4:44 pm

        Not only obligated Jason, but then I can hold you accountable too. -:)

    Love it! It has me thinking!!

    • Reply Michael Good March 7, 2012 at 9:55 pm

      I thought of you while writing this, Char. I remembered you said you had some IDCs you wanted to do. We’d love it if you’d share!

    My uncomfortable thing for this week is to ask for help/prayer. I like helping others, but I’m not very comfortable asking for help.

    Have a Victorious Day!

      Yeah, that can be difficult for me sometimes too. Thanks for sharing.

    I’m finding that the older the get the less I care about what others think – at least being worried that I’ll be made a fool of. I know there are things I could put on a IDC list – I’ll think on it!

      Great, Michael! If you do your own IDC, I’d love it if you’d share it in a guest post for an IDC post of ours.
