Internet & Marketing Geek trying to stay on the cluetrain. Most interested in Digital Communications and how the web has changed the way people relate to each other. Curator of websites & blogs that further the digital revolution.
Interests: Web Technologies, Marketing & Public Relations, Blogging, Writing and Entrepreneurship. I love sharing stuff I that seems different on the surface and then making crazy connections between them. Public Relations and Marketing in the digital plane and the empowerment of former-audiences who now create, comment and curate instead of just staring at a screen or a page.

Thank you for sharing your inspiration. You're already on your way to a fab 2012!
Do you think Peter has basically explained why most people are dissatisfied with their jobs? For me I could hear dozens of conversations with management about innovative changes only to be told, "No" or "We'll have to get approval from higher up." It seems so clear once you hear Peter explain the irrelevance our current best practices.I also like how you explained the need for clock speed. I agree there is a huge value for customers when companies allow their employees to bring their gifts to work. Motivated employees are empowered. In turn, empowered employees can deliver excellent service to customers. Seems to simple yet so difficult to reach. Thank you for sharing such an insightful post!
The #trust30 challenge is over and it's been an interesting 30 days around here. It was definitely a stretch. The next leg continues past with @heyamerrae at the helm. It kicks off with a prompt by Seth Godin himself. So that this blog doesn't get overrun permanently with writing prompts,... Continue reading

If it's my fault that everything in my life isn't working (and I used to always think it was) then it's time for ME to change. If I'm attracting the wrong job, romance and friends then I'm definitely not being true to myself. What I would do is really look... Continue reading

Oh so we're ramping it up huh? To be honest, damaging my "image" does create fear in me. Not because I'm afraid of being misunderstood, but because we live in a society where you are judged, weighed and measured by many superficial things. The way I am misunderstood is in... Continue reading

@rosiemedia You took some chances without knowing, but self-reliance & trust was all you needed. Doesn't that feel better now? 10 Year Text by Tia Singh Speak what you think now in hard words, and tomorrow speak what tomorrow thinks in hard words again, though it contradict every thing you...

Breaking down something overwhelming like fear into smaller pieces is probably the only way to combat something so shadowy and immense. Fear is one of those things that sneaks up on you and invades so much of your attention and without your conscious knowledge. I believe there's also a huge... Continue reading

The last time I felt my alive-est was when I was in Australia. I could see the skyline of Melbourne on one side and the beautiful rugged mountains on the other. The day was cold and it was drizzling, but despite the gray skies I felt so alive. My fiancee... Continue reading

Some of the ingredients I wouldn't want in the Rosie of 2016 would be: selfishness, greed, self-centeredness, arrogance, and shallowness. If you combined all those negative ingredients and threw in a pinch of dishonesty and a dash of unethical you would end up with my exact opposite. It would be... Continue reading

I like your idea of getting the community involved in identifying these spammers. Giving a little reward is a nice way to help people act. Most people hate seeing spam stuffing in comments, review and forums, but I think everyone just turns a blind eye as if it's expected. Having a mechanism for reporting, flagging or voting it down would be a great way to try and prune some of it back. There's nothing better than a human brain to figure out a deception like spam.

I'm a firm believer in continually improving (Kaizen) whether it's in my personal or professional life. Sometimes it means waking up people who are 'in charge'. The staff on the front line often knows what's broken in an organization on an intimate level that Senior Management can't even imagine. Particularly... Continue reading

Sincere thanks for your comment, Julie. It made me smile that someone got an aha! out of my post. I was beginning to wonder what people were thinking about this sudden flood of philosophy on my digital PR blog.

Sounds like Resistance is at it again. I do agree with this idea of see yourself as "ordinary" getting in the way of creating something powerful. When we discount our own ideas and abilities, we limit their power and we lose trust in ourselves. We're not good enough, smart enough... Continue reading

If my intuition were a person, she would resemble Laurell K. Hamilton’s Anita Blake. She would be fiery, smart and agile. She would think on her feet and be ready for anything. Quick witted and straight forward in her action, my intuition is never afraid to tell people what they... Continue reading

Tonight I connected with someone who shared a certain kinship with me from early on. The meeting was arranged earlier, but today's writing prompt below made me focus on why we were meeting. What's the connection? Sure we could have a nice conversation about our dreams. We could share a... Continue reading

To bring more enthusiasm to my work is a matter of letting it float to the surface for others to see. Often times I hold back my enthusiasm in exchange for some time to think about whether it's appropriate to show any. Crazy, huh? Photo credit: ppdigital from morguefile.com Here's... Continue reading

Who's smarter than you when it comes to how you want to live your life? No one but you.

You can blame the #trust30 initiative for the recent tangent this journal has taken. Several times I toyed with the idea of moving it to a separate blog. Now that is about halfway over, I am thinking it should just stay here. Writing is such a key skill in Marketing... Continue reading

One project that I've been sitting on is to write a book. It's definitely one of those things that I talk about all the time, but don't act on. I make excuses that I don't have time or I haven't 'fleshed' it out. Even writing those excuses down sounds lame.... Continue reading

Any time I trusted my intuition in my life, things just had a way of working out. I don't think this is so much a 'magical' or mystical thing. I see it as having your eyes and heart open to opportunity. I believe we are presented with opportunities to change... Continue reading

Inventing the future is easy for a dreamer like me. The second part that makes it hard is "making it happen" or as Seth Godin would say, the shipping. In my own future, I want to invent a life that is full of work that I am connected to and... Continue reading
