Mick Ebeling is the founder of Not Impossible Labs – an award-winning technology incubator dedicated to “doing things that can’t be done.”

They’re hackers & programmers who look for unsolvable problems in the world, and then crowd-source creative ways to solve them.

This is 3 Things.

Listen here:

In this episode:

1) Many beautiful things in life are accidental. Mick started as a movie producer, but a series of random events ultimately led him to his true passion. His life mantra demands a bias to action: “Commit, then figure it out.”

2) Good should not be defined by a tax code. Not Impossible Labs is a for-profit business – by design. We believe that every business should see itself as a movement, and we should all use our platforms to become forces for good.

3) Beware of “recorders.” We all should be “doers.” If you notice a problem that seems absurd, don’t wait for someone else to take action. Everyone has the power to move the dial. Start small: if you can change one person’s life, you can change the world. Who is your one?
