Dear Co-x3 Family,
This week, we share about quests – how does having a noble mission make us, and the world, better?
It’s been a fantastic week for our community – here are some highlights:
Our ambitious mission at Co-x3 is to nurture and grow the largest community of givers, armed with the knowledge and action to effect positive impacts on the world. It’s been such an immense pleasure to interact with so many of you over our daily and weekly calls, and learn that we feel similarly in our desires to make the world a better place; if not for ourselves, then for our loved ones who will inherit our legacies. Co-creation and collaboration is core in our community, and over the next few months, we’ll be embarking on more and more adventures to defeat world bosses. We’ve designed an exciting and evolving mechanism to ensure all community members get a chance to be involved:
- Directly participating members will be rewarded with community gold and our project will be showcased on our website.
- Members can indirectly contribute to noble causes by offering their skills and talents to other members for community gold.
The result is a shared economy of giving, empowering our family to make the world a better place while learning new skills and honing our expertise in our domains.
We have an exciting new initiative proposed by fellow family member Joshwin, and now being rapidly adopted by our community – accountability squads. Upon joining our family, you have the option to join up to 3 squads (each capped at 6 people) to grow together with the family. Each squad has its own unique differences in interests, timezones, and challenges they want to take on – whether it be daily standup, daily stoic (led by Shania), or any future challenges we have.
We had an 8-hour study with us session on Saturday and we had loads of fun chilling together and getting work done (we even ended up making a music bot!). If you guys are interested in more of these, just send a message inside the community whenever you are starting a work session – we can open a room for anybody to join in!
Of course, you can’t have good work without some fun, so that evening, as part of our Saturday games initiatives, we held the third session of our very own tabletop RPG series – Seven Secrets, Seven Sovereigns to relax and stretch our creative muscles in our build-your-own adventure. Our resident designer Vivian will be animating our adventures – so stay tuned for that if you’re looking for fun quirky adventures to watch in your spare time! Our next session will be in 3 weeks, we always welcome a good peanut gallery 🥜.
Heidi warmed our hearts this week when she shared her ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ review about our family. Here’s what she had to say.
Co-x3 is an extremely welcoming community. You can be as little or as much involved as you like. There are members happy to assist you with anything you are trying to achieve. The leaders in the community are so good at making people feel welcome. I am in awe of the work they put into the community, and the “Be Intentional” and “Gamification” systems. I think the way that so many people willingly put in their time and talents to improve the systems and grow the community, really shows what a great community it is.
I can’t say enough good things about the community. I really think you should check it out for yourself!
It’s been an amazing journey, and we feel blessed every time we read a comment or receive a new email with such kind words – thank you so much for being awesome!

Quote: “I judge you unfortunate because you have never lived through misfortune. You have passed through life without an opponent—no one can ever know what you are capable of, not even you.” – Seneca, On Providence, 4.3
- Every hero needs a worthy opponent;
- What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger;
- It is in times of stress, that your true capabilities are revealed.
Let’s get highly motivated to personally develop ourselves, develop accountability, and collaborate to bring positive social impacts to our local and global communities.
