Note: I wrote this on my earlier blog hosted as https://blogs.seds.org/pradeep. I recovered the text from the WayBack Machine. This post appeared on December 13, 2007 as per the timestamp. I’m trying to collect here again all my old writings spread on various blogs.
When I started out with my SEDS chapter in Mumbai, I had an idea of how to do projects. I decided that I would think of all of my dream projects and get my friends to work on them with me. After four years in SEDS and interacting with many people I have changed that perception.
Imposing projects on people doesn’t work many times. It’s best if you get members to think of ideas and then helping them implement the same. Over the next two weeks or more, I want to put here all the things that I dreamed for doing for my chapter so that you can implement the same in your chapters and actually DO something.
I hope that you’re not affected by the attitude that I had when I joined. It proved disastrous for me.
