I had an excellent chat with Mark McGuinness on Friday. One of things Mark has been championing lately is enthusiasm. I’m particularly struck by his notion that focussing on enthusiasm might be a way out of worrying.

I found the original meaning of enthusiasm from the Greek, was (my italics):

inspiration or possession by a divine afflatus or by the presence of a god

If you like, enthusiasm is about showing up in the here and now – a good way to counter anxiety, I find. You can invoke God according to your spiritual taste.

I’ve taken to suggesting that Web 2.0 may be creating a volunteer economy. One that will be driven increasingly by the enthusiastic. Maybe not by these guys:
