Big Heroic Audacious Goals (BHAGs)steemCreated with Sketch.

in #bitshares6 years ago (edited)

The Mission of the Billion Hero Campaign is to raise up a billion heroes to accomplish Big Heroic Audacious Goals (BHAGs) for Humanity.

Our method is to select greatly undervalued digital currencies, grow them to full potential and use that growth to achieve BHAGs set by humanity. Small nest eggs can become big war chests in The Million to Billion Club.

Our first three choices are Bitcoin, BitShares, and the Hero.

What's a BHAG?

Well, here's the original definition:

A Big Hairy Audacious Goal (BHAG) is a strategic business statement similar to a vision statement which is created to focus an organization on a single medium-long term organization-wide goal which is audacious, likely to be externally questionable, but not internally regarded as impossible.

We want to elevate our vision from merely Hairy to truly Heroic! Goals on the level of John F. Kennedy's Space Program.

The difference between hairy and heroic is not just one of scale, but one of risk and obstacles to be overcome. Heroic Goals have the potential to inspire and unite all of humanity -- and make a permanent global difference!

Anyone can propose a BHAG and work hard to rally support for it under our Billion Hero Campaign. Doing so would certainly qualify as an act of heroism. If you push that boulder up the hill far enough, others may see your heroism and rally around to help you. And if you push it high enough, you might get some A-List Celebrities and other high-visibility leaders to join your cause. Before you know it, you could have a million heroes behind you.

We want to make it possible for anyone to be a hero and everyone to participate in a heroic cause.

What kind of BHAGs are we talking about?

Well, here are some modern day moon shots I wouldn't be surprised to see someone propose This Summer:

BHAG #1 - Build a fair and honest world financial system.
BHAG #2 - Localize food production with a vertical farm in every province.
BHAG #3 - Switch the world over to clean energy.
BHAG #4 - Make a new Matrix 4 movie.
BHAG #5 - Move Bitcoin onto BitShares then move BitShares onto EOS.

Note that not every BHAG has to be deadly serious or profoundly noble.
It just has to be something enough people want to see happen.

Thanks Stan for creating the Hero token.

Love the vision, @stan. My BHAG is to find a way to establish a worldwide open-source free seed bank, ideally run off cryptocurrency. I'm still brainstorming on how it would work but ideally you'd earn currency for sharing your seeds and could spend it on other varieties, ideally connecting in person as well as online through seedswap meetups. Maybe each library could be a part of this network. Onward and upward!

Great idea!

My BHAG is to make a fully featured social network based on blockchain. Not just a reddit clone as Steemit.

BHAG #5 - Move Bitcoin onto BitShares then move BitShares onto EOS.

Now that is a move I can 100% get behind!

Fully support this Stan. Thanks for the update mate. :)

My wife and I have Big Heroic Audacious Goals (BHAGs) for Humanity that include:

  • Leveraging this technology to help charities, such as Makers and Means International, complete their missions at lower costs due to low transaction fees for sending money over seas

  • Build a resort property

  • Provided rest and rejuvenation programs to people doing charitable work so they can get a break when they feel they are on the brink of burnout

  • Develop a refuge center for women that will help them escape the traps of sex trafficking and the sex trade

  • Open a dog rescue

  • Own our own brewery and

  • Anything else we come up with between now and then!

Great vision. Work on going to accomplish this.

BHAG #3 - Switch the world over to clean energy.
Solar coach ICO on Bitshares starting October 1st
Executive summary

How high on the list of priorities is goal #4? Can we get it moved up?

The purpose of the Billion Hero Campaign is to have all humanity vote on what gets moved up. Start getting your solid ideas written up and designate a BHAG bitshares account for people to designate with their vote. Stay tuned for an upcoming example.

BHAG in Hindi means 'to run'

Yep. We are running hard. :)

I just found out that it's an organized business strategy

I think BHAG#2 is the most reasonable. :-)

many ppl said that bitcoin will be 5000$ next year what u think about it ?

Depends on which Bitcoin you are talking about. :B

Great initiative and I supported it through upvoting and resteeming your post. Anything else I could do?

Posts links to this in other conversations.
Write up BHAG proposals.
Stay tuned for coming announcements.

Wow, a very beautiful post, I really like it @stan

Thanks a lot for your posts but i will need your help to reach where you are now

Nice post @stan

I had 50 HERO. Once.

Resteemed and voted you 😍

Hi Stan. When will you have the finalized the rules for the Market Hero contest? Does each team need to have a 501(c)(3), or just a BHAG?

Just a BHAG. Vote for the BitShares account you want to receive the prize. Could be a for profit company wanting to buy swampland in the Sahara, if that's what you like. It up to the account owner to earn your trust and respect.

Rules are still evolving, but its basically giving points for accomplishing tasks and holding assets on the DEX. The website will be up shortly and that will be the place for the latest official information. A fancier site is a month or so away. It will keep growing.

I never tried HERO before! Thanks for you I will give a try.
I like the vision & mission that you wish to brought to the world by BHAGs! Really appreciate that effort and would like to say hope to be a part of that also!


I like this. I going to go get myself some GHAGs! Cool acronym haha!

Great post. upvoted and resteemed. Please visit my blog @bikash-tutor. Thank you.

This is a great post! I'm glad to have found it. Since I was a small child in 7th grade I have been writing about education reform. I have now completed my 5 year project which is a memoir/manifesto mixed with a Daliesque style of art. The book itself is designed to go viral. Bottom-line; help humanity reach full-potential. I'm now looking for an agent and crafting my pitch. Definitely interested in reading more of your stuff and I am going to look into BHAG more. Thanks again for your post. Following, upvoted and resteemed. :)

I think I'm in just because of #4! Love the ideas @stan and definitely think localizing the food production can change the world. Let's do this!

Love this!! Going to the Billion Hero Campaign as soon as I post this. But first, Stan, remember this song:

? The pure joy and brilliance of James Brown and Otis Redding. "Papa's Got A Brand New BHAG!" It's completely impossible to listen to that without moving.

I posted text with that link, but it isn't here... So, I'll retype what I said. I said: I love this project!!! And I'm going to check out Billion Hero Campaign as soon as I click Post. And asked Stan if he remembers this song. ("Papa's Got A Brand New BHAG.") The pure joy and brilliance of BOTH James Brown and Otis Redding. It's completely impossible to listen to without moving.

James Brown's version, equally wonderful:

How do we officially propose a BHAG? And do we just keep the BTS on OpenLedger?

Achieving BHAG #4 would be the best one

Cool idea.
BHAG for me?

  • Blockchain based voting system that creates DIRECT democracy over REPRESENTATIVE Democracy. How pie in the sky is that?

I think that BHAG #2 more attractive and easier to do. ;)

None of the HERO links are working..keep getting "warning" signs

I would kill for a Matrix sequel with all the main characters and producers. :D

Hi I am a HUMAN BEING and NOT a Bot! (just thought you should know) Great info. thanks for posting - upvoted & following!

No you're not. You're either:

A.) a bot


B.) a parrot

Cause nobody, not even the criminally insane, will repeat the same comment as many times as have you.

Coincidence that you are here, right by the link I just posted. :o)

It was meant to be :)
