Grid society is a new society, which serves as a metaphor for life on earth. It takes into account all the dynamics, politics, complexities of everyday life on Earth. However, Grid society, provides each member with a new way of operating – a new operating system, to overcome both societal and individual barriers; in turn, allowing each member to reach their potential.
Gridmoves is the company behind the development of Grid Society. I am Natasha: one of the co- founders of Gridmoves. Together, Tamara and I have developed a new system.
It began from a dark place, a place where Tamara and I were unhappy with our position in life (on the Grid), and decided to start to hold each other accountable for changes we wanted to make. We started to recognise that at times, the changes that we needed to make were always more complex, than initially meets the eye. From that, we started to deeply analyse our every action, examining where we wanted to head, who and what was stopping us- this analysis led us to develop the new system of operation.
This is for people, who are serious about making change in their lives. This is for people, who are willing to reflect deeply on exactly what they are doing in their lives and with whom. This is for people, who are willing to go through a meaningful process of becoming their most authentic self. This is for people who, seek balance in their life; those who often get overwhelmed and cannot find structure in their lives. Fundamentally, this is for the people, who are willing and committed to TAKE ACTION to get to where they want to be – this is for the people, who are not afraid of change and risk. At the same time, this is for the people who make excuses, who accept their position as final and are moving in circles. With that said, by no means, is this for the faint- hearted. Those who think change happens overnight, need not apply.
This cannot be pinned down exactly, but if you think somewhere between sci-fi and personal development. It has elements of fantasy, but that again, is only a metaphor. The fantasy is just a means of getting each member to think about their own life and personal development.
In every rejection, our vision and ethos became clearer. What we stood for and where we wanted to head became more prominent in our minds. This system promotes a revolution- when you are building a revolution, you don’t collaborate with the powers that be – you collaborate with the people. We wanted to make this accessible, we didn’t want to wait for agents, publishers, etc. – we wanted to bring this to the people NOW! The world needs this NOW.
Grid Society, challenges the status quo- it unpacks the systems that can at times, stop us. This promotes change, this promotes a revolution of minds; so when you have a revolution of minds, it doesn’t sit too well with the existing structures. Hence why, we feel, in order to deliver the message in its true form, we must be independent.
You will get 2 years access to what may be called an instruction manual, of how to operate the instructions for the Grid Operating System. The manual will provide you with a comprehensive description of the different Grids, the positioning of where you are on the Grid currently and where you want to be. It will provide you with a detailed typology of the 9 characters that live on the Grid, aiding you in identifying which Gridite you are and also who those around you are. Further, the system will provide you with a framework and codes for deciphering the vision you have for yourself and how you will strategically move every day, in order to achieving it. Underpinning all of that, the system will support people to feel good in the process, a system of self-reward and accountability.
The new system accounts for challenges and complexities, but it does not allow for excuses or lack of action. Grid Society promotes action and reward. It does not justify laziness or hiding behind the past – it focuses on the now and the strategic moves that need to happen to change your future. Grid Society promote the truth.
So far, we have trialled and tested the system extensively. Members, have become somewhat obsessed, ranging from what they wear to the Grid language they have adopted. But more importantly, people have spoken about the way that once they are introduced to the concept, they cannot get it out of their minds. The colours green and orange are a daily reminder of what they should and should not be doing. The concept seeps its way into people’s every move. It’s described as a new way of life – it provides them with a go-to for analysing every feeling and action they encounter. It helps them to sort and sift through the chaos that current life presents. It offers a means of order, but order that promotes action and achievement of personal potential. See our ‘from the people’ page for some of the feedback.
