Author Lior Zoref shares ideas about sharing ideas

Lior Zoref, Israeli author.

The book itself is a product of crowdsourced brainstorming and editing.

"I wrote the draft of each chapter and posted it online for comments," Zoref says.

"I said: 'Don't tell me it's great. If you like something explain why. And if you think something is missing, tell me why.'"

Zoref says that although crowdsourcing is his topic, discussions during his China visit often veered toward questions about how to live happily.

He believes people should start exploring and following their dreams.

Those who are courageous enough to share their passions and dreams with others may discover crowds will help them realize them.

Zoref once shared his aspiration to give a TED talk about his concept of "mindsharing".

His close friends told him it was impossible. But his Facebook and Twitter friends helped him. He delivered the first-ever crowdsourced talk at TED 2012.

"People are afraid to share what their passions are. I was scared, too," Zoref says.

"But being sincere, open and vulnerable-people could see that this is true courage and appreciate it. So, if someone has good advice, they will tell you and help you."
