A Tongue in Cheek Look at a New Way to Make a Difference: Get on the Doer Path!
The Platinum PIAs Awards Presents a Lampoon of Sorts with a New Comical Character: Dr. Doer Who Lends a Helping Hand…
Who is Dr. Doer? According to today’s edition of the “USA Make a Difference” Newsletter this fictional character is an acclaimed and esteemed expert of the Doer Sciences with a B.A., M.A. and N.M.I.H (No Med is He).
Simply put, as Dr. Doer explains in his tele-lectures:
“As a a man of the study of ScienceOmaticDoerIsm I recently had a grant to figure out what the two types of meaning searchers were. And after several months of lab analysis, I came up with the hypothesis that there are Dreamers and then there are Doers. And very soon I will be wrestling with another question with another grant to look more deeply into what I call The Two Hybrids which are dreamers/doers and doers/dreamers. The many months of lab analysis and ScienceOmaticDoerIsm, is to specifically answer a question that has puzzled the puzzled. The inquiry is to find out which is better: to be a Dreamer who becomes a Doer, or a Doer who can Dream?”
We then asked Dr. Doer what his recommendation was to anyone who wants to become a Doer. His response was:
It is really quite easy. It takes just 3 steps.
1. Get on the Doer Path. 2. Pursue your Doer Goal and subgoals. 3. Enter Doertopia then repeat.

What was the Platinum PIAs Awards?
The “happening” recognized small businesses and other organizations and institutions who are making a difference both online and off.
Lessons Learned from Pre Covid-Producing of Events and Shows
The best way to “Tap into the Community” is to “Create and Organize the Community” The PIAs ended its decade long annual run just prior to the entrance of the villain of the show, the Corona Virus. But strategies similar to staging shows and events can be easily done by local and online businesses being negatively impacted by Covid and its Variants.
Discovering the Path
Information regarding what the first three steps of the journey are, could potentially become available if “insiders” decide to make digital learning products available. The decision regarding whether or not to move forward with beta testing and proof of concept, must be decided upon by tonight, Friday, at 12:00am, midnight, the start of the new year, 2022.
The Platinum PIAs Closed but still having an Impact
The Platinum PIAs over the years has had as winners those who work to preserve animals in their habitats all across the 50 states.
National Bird Day
Today’s date, January 5th, is known the world over to be National Bird Day. This day is not to be confused with International Migratory Bird Day which marks the time that birds migrate.
The Cause of National Bird Day
Instead, National Bird Day is a holiday that has been in existance for over a decade and is the time that bird lovers can participate in the process of counting the amount of the various bird types there are. This happens all over the country and is a participation in the process of documenting the number of the various species of our feathered friends all across this great country of ours.
Those Who Have Lost Their Lives on the Day Throughout History
We would be remiss if we did not mention that today is a date that over the years has marked the deaths of some very important people including Amelia Earhart (1897-1939) Pilot, George Washington Carver (1864-1943) Botanist and Calvin Coolidge (1872-1933) US President.
On National Bird Day, those involved with the National Bird Day Cause can watch birds either together or in a group to participate in helping with the conservation of birds. Will you bird watch today?!
Let’s face it. The Platinum PIAs were a lot of fun and this fun lasted for ten straight years of celebrating community and the accomplishment of entrepreneurs who made a difference to charities and society. And if the PIAs hadn’t lost to cancer one of our key collaborators, we might well have continued for another decade.
But that wasn’t in the cards, Rodger was taken from us, and in losing him it was clear that the Platinum PIAs would never be the same again. So the PIAs as we knew it ended and the torch of recognizing entrepreneurs making a difference in their communities made way to a new vista.
So here we are approximately a month later with the news that it is now a signed and sealed reality that the ten year tradition of doing the Platinum PIAs Awards is acting as the inspiration and outgrowth of the “U.S. Make a Difference” Awards. In short, if you go to USmakeadifference.com right now you can participate if you desire in mounting the first celebration of the new approach.
Keeping Two Influences
Also, yes, we are still keeping the Big Apple Awards wing for education and the Houdini Day influence for magician who are nominated for making a difference in their communities.
Recognizing those Making a Difference
So we hope to see you soon as we pursue the important mission which is to recognize those who are making a difference in their communities!
The pouring in of favorite memories and gratitude over the last month or so has been overwhelming. I guess we didn’t realize how much of an impact an awards show can have. Or maybe, because it was more than just a celebration where trophies were handed out.
The Next Incarnation
Making a difference is important to many of us. And that is not going to change as we go through this time of transitioning. And the hope is that PIA fans will somehow participate in the next incarnation.
Thank you one and all for reminding us about the importance of trying to give back.
The title of this post is “Creativity Keeps the Platinum PIAs Going.” But another important thing that keeps the PIAs on track is of course community. So it is really an awards show based on community and creativity. Every year there is a surge of interest as the year ends in the anticipation of the upcoming celebration. We look forward to this time because it is exciting to be around so much community and creativity.
All are Welcome to Nominate
The submissions of nominations are coming in fast and furious and we’re trying to keep up with the pace because ultimately only a certain number small busine owners, entertainers and educators will be used going forward. Though, not to discourage you but if you have someone who you feel has made a difference in her or his community please feel free to nominate them.
The Final Pick
A unique aspect of how the Platinum PIAs does its programming is based on who is nominated. We don’t initially put any restrictions on who can be nominated so we get all kinds of creative folks who help their community in some way. After careful consideration of ALL nominee we pick 9 to 16 people to actually be nominees.
9 Nominees Will Be Selected
Our plan this year is to select 9 total in the form of three categories and three nominees for each category. The reason we are doing it this way is because the three areas of nominees will be included in conjunction with the three faces of the PIAs which are the PIAs old school, the USAcreate.com Awards and finally the Big Apple Awards.
As many of you know, our solution as to what to call the PIAs came about due to some pretty intense input. Most fans wanted us to keep the name “Platinum PIAs” but will include the USAcreate.com Awards and the Big Apple Awards in the mix. Quite a creative community, this.
The big news is that NYC Create is the official newsletter of the Platinum PIAs awards. Since the PIAs are based in New York City it is a natural that they would partner with an NYC organization. Working with NYC Create means that the newsletter will still be packed with tips on creative career advancement but when the Platinum PIAs nears its launch date NYC Create will give you the latest relevant details.
NYC Create’s most recent edition reveals some important insights into how to make money as an artist. In fact, the current blog entry is the first in a series of 6 such installments. Each installment will give you information on how to profit from your creativity. For instance, this week’s content focuses on utilizing education to bring in an income stream. That’s the idea behind this entire 6 week series: providing you the artist – including musicians, writers, filmmakers etc. – with income stream ideas you can implement. The more streams you create the more income you will receive.
The Platinum Pias, as we mentioned right after the event, was an extraordinary experience. Many said it was the best Pias yet and marked the public introduction of Art Gush which is a proprietary feature film creation methodology for actors that involves no crew.
Also the production for the movie “Thrillumentary: Making a Difference Can Be Murder” was begun. Some of the filming that evening will be seen in the final sequence of the movie!
Cast members of “Thrillumentary” were present in the audience. Watch the video and see if you can pick out who the “Thrillumentary” cast members are.
