motivate yourself to learn

Whenever I get a chance to absorb information through more than one primary sense, I intake the information better. This helps to pick up details.

Most books, speeches and classes will not hit an exceptionally high level of teaching. Proactively compensate for that weakness and make yourself interested in material.

Make subjects more interesting by asking more questions.

Continue asking questions until the answers come to you. Motivate yourself to learn.

firm trust

Restore your confidence daily.

confidence

  • Confidence comes from taking risks.
  • Confidence soars when you embark on a mission with an honorable purpose – and you’ll realize that those among us who live purposefully and seek out ways to serve others are the most content.
  • You must demonstrate confidence every time you fall down and have the tenacity to get back up.
  • You know more than you think.
  • Trust the inner voice that says, “You can do this.”
  • Trust yourself and learn how to succeed.

make your brand to engage

For marketers, our timeless job is still the same: to communicate.

In other words, the written word matters more than ever. The written word isn’t dying, it’s evolving. The information is there. If only brands were set up for the written word.

Today, brands have an opportunity to be fast, to engage in real-time dialogue, to hear what they are getting right — and wrong.

Twitter serves as useful customer service. Facebook tells us if a movie is going to be a hit pretty much right away. Instagram lets us know what products people really, really love…and share.

you must be much more

Social Media Marketing is much more than simply being active in social networks.

Social Media Marketing is not only about what others do for you in Social Media. Once you get others to talk about you, you have half-way won. You need to make it easy for them and provide something they can talk about.

  • Provide interesting content – people share content
  • Make the content easy to share
  • Provide messaging and social accounts

Without content your social media marketing is doomed to fail.

Do you have enough content to share on Social Media to keep visible? If you do not provide anything worth following you for, how can you expect people to follow you?

If your content is not shared, how can you expect to grow?

concientiousness

A staggering amount of research links conscientiousness with success and great leaders.

Conscientiousness is linked to income and job satisfaction. While other traits like extroversion predicts outcomes in some situations, studies have found that conscientiousness has as much impact on a leader’s success as extraversion.

extroversion

Conscientious people become great leaders because they do things better than others. They set goals, work toward them, and persist when things go wrong. They have a mental toughness.

They behave in a way to set themselves up for success.

the digitization of reality

Technology is being integrated into all aspects of everyday life. And this includes business and working life.

The Internet of Things links the physical and digital worlds. A global network of connected sensors records everything. The information that is generated is utilized for various purposes, including improving performance.

The information will all be in digital form and managed via software, predictive algorithms and block chain.

The result? A digital reality generates trust and truth that allow us to know, with remarkable precision, exactly what has happened and what is likely to happen.

antifragile

While I was doing some stock and financial research, I came across an article that interested me. It was about Apple. Apple the company. In the past calendar year, Apple has been through ups and downs. Companies and people always go through peaks and valleys. Apple was no exception.

There were stories, from reliable sources, that blasted Apple’s market share and their lack of new products. If that wasn’t enough, here came news of Apple’s lack of innovation. Now, remember that this is while Apple is constructing their “mothership”. This is the nickname of their new research facility which resembles a big flying saucer. To me, Apple is always a model of innovation. Apparently, not everyone thought that way.

But while the negatives that were coming out on Apple, some major “players” were buying the stock like investment houses and hedge funds. Warren Buffet was a big buyer of Apple stock and always spoke highly about the company.

Well, the post I came across specifically mentioned Apple as being “antifragile”. As I read on, it was brought out that antifragile was incorrect as to describing Apple and should have mentioned Amazon as being antifragile. Antifragile is described as:

“Some things benefit from shocks. They thrive and grow when exposed to volatility, randomness, disorder and stressors and love adventure, risk, and uncertainty. Yet, in spite of the ubiquity of the phenomenon, there is no word for the exact opposite of fragile. Let us call it antifragile.”

This original definition is from Nassim Taleb. Antifragile is assigned to entities which are small companies, companies that can pivot, companies with embedded options, investments with open-ended outcomes and companies led by owners/operators and/or aggressive tinkerers.

“If the designation antifragile is rather vague and limited to specific sources of harm or volatility, and up to a certain range of exposure, it is no more and no less so than the designation fragile. Antifragility is relative to a given situation. A boxer might be robust, pale when it comes to his physical condition, and might improve from fight to fight, but he can easily be emotionally fragile and break into tears when dumped by his girlfriend.”

The term “antifragile” is vague. Perhaps it should not have been applied to Apple, but instead to Amazon.

Think of antifragility in terms of “a thing” and volatility. Antifragility isn’t what you should be under all circumstances. Sometimes you have to accept being on top and perhaps consequently vulnerable.

Apple: Antifragile it is Not was the source and inspiration for this post.
