Thanks Al. People mostly think about the impact and how they will deal with it. I also hope my post is getting people to think about how the risk is evolving and how mob justice works and in reality, we are still much the same "humans" we've been for centuries. The rules we create to make civilization function well also shape how civilized we think and act. Same is true online.

Back in the dark ages, villagers and townspeople would often react to a rumor and then take action swiftly to bring justice upon the presumed guilty party without waiting for the authorities to resolve it. The more emotionally attached people... Continue reading

Thanks Gary. I love hearing examples of how organizations have put this in practice in real world. Excellent.
Thanks Bill! So important to know what you stand for.

Our company is in the process of further defining its core values. At times we have been the shoe makers children and put all our effort into our clients and not enough into ourselves; going barefoot. This is a big... Continue reading

Thanks Carly, what I found interesting was that both camps start from the same place; intuition. This is not a surprise really since we are all people and have both capacitie within us.
Hi Sean. Yes software development is both even though many would see it as purely science. There are formulas for how to do certain things in code but putting those togther into something useful is an art.
Thanks Bill. I suspect it is true because both functions are part of us as humans. Your posts are a very unique view into different aspects of branding and I always learn something.

Most people identify strongly with one camp or the other. I always trust my instincts or intuition first and foremost. Or I measure and test everything and always go on logic. The artist has an idea and implements it and... Continue reading

I was there but since I already perform in a few Celtic music groups I let some of the other participants share in the joy of going for it on stage.
Hi Bill, I sing and dance like nobody is watching, even if they are. Thanks.
Thanks Bob, it was fun to hear your rendition of My Way. Good luck with your action list.

Your habits determine your potential for success and also your tendency towards failure. Driving happens to be a great example of how habits determine your future success and even safety. Do you cheat on corners when no one is around... Continue reading

What is truly ironic is that we receive what we have planned for the universe, from the universe, according to its plan for us. Thanks Bill.
Thanks for sharing that quote Al. Determination comes after the push.

I feel a strong compulsion to step into my potential and see where it goes. It is like the Universe is pushing and shoving me in a certain direction. There is a mix of excitement and fear in my mind.... Continue reading

Thanks Barb, the metaphor is correct even if eating an elephant is not your actual goal.
Hi Dixie, indeed it is taking the discussion a bit further. There are probably always do or die moments. But in reality our lives are filled with them but we are so used to dealing with them, they don't seem big. Think close call in traffic. Happens all the time. One day the moon will be like that.

You can successfully put on your socks in the morning. You can successfully walk on the moon. Both are successes. Walking on the moon is made up of lots of little successes like putting on your socks. And taking the... Continue reading
