our creativity is part of our self-story

We want to manufacture something that won’t go to waste. We want to be a guardian of creation.

 We can work for high quality. If you are a writer, for example, you can not be sure that you will be creative tomorrow. It’s always up to others to judge our creativity.

Promote Creativity

We need to make more time for ourselves so we have more time to gaze at the heavens. This will allow us to be more creative tomorrow. Creativity is all about tomorrow. Meditation is creative idleness. We can take a walk and think about things. This will give us a fair balance in our lives.
The great dream of life should be to boost the moral and economic dignity of human beings. I come from a family of farmers. I hold fond memories of those years. We sowed and we reaped. Through that time, I took many items for granted. I know now I should not have done that. As I reflect on my growing years, I realize how fortunate I was. I’m thankful for much.
I learned to foster dignity and contribute to the community. This came from work. Work elevates the dignity of culture and society. We have a universal wish to be treated with honesty, respect, and consideration. We need to feel respect for every single person.

We Have Come to the World to Know

As creators, we want to convince people of our thoughts. Others want to convince me too. We need to strive for hope. We need to replace fear with hope. If we want to challenge the status quo, we have to be polite. We have to be five percent better tomorrow than we were today. This is progress.
Marcus Aurelius once stated that we should think as it were our last day on earth, but we should plan as if we will be here forever.

the better you’ll be

You are not other writers.

There is a difference between your first draft and a published work.

The only person you should compare yourself to is yourself.

Read something you wrote a year ago, and compare it to something more recent. You’ll see an improvement.

The more you write, the better you’ll be.

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.

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.

easy and good

Be easy with yourself, and find discipline from an approach where you’re your own friend.

Within ourselves, we have the ability to be our own boss. Self-doubt can get in the way of connecting with others.

be-good-do-good

To get better with ourselves, we need to decide on one improvement that will make us better as a leader than yesterday. Do it. Do it to rid ourselves of the doubt.

influencer reach out

Finding influencers is important.

Take time to observe how truly good influencers are at influencing. Assume any consumer is an influencer. Keep an eye on who your audience likes to follow. Keep track of this information. Slowly engage with them.

influencepower

Ask what your motive is for reaching out to any influencer. Know if you want more visibility, credibility, or make more sales before contacting them. This lets you frame your message accordingly.

Share more content.

discover the supercharged reason

People share content for various reasons. People share to market products and to be helpful. Ideas are shared too.

Businesses generally share content to bring value to the target audience.

There needs to be a “supercharged reason” why people share your content.

They care if the idea is important.

Research to know your audience. Understand what will entice your audience. Audiences have triggers. Learn about these triggers. See what your audience shared in the past.

Once you’ve your research, study your findings to create content that’s shareable.

the big idea

Great advertising should ask, “Do you get the message?” The answer should be, “Yeah, I got it!”

Great advertising comes down to the big idea.

Creative advertising comes down to the big idea.

“The Big Idea” – a surprising solution to a marketing problem, expressed in memorable verbal and/or graphic imagery – is the authentic source of communicative power.

Every marketing problem embodies a surprising solution – a big idea.

market to the target

There is a lot of noise in marketing. To cut through the noise, marketing needs to be personalized.

Our marketing efforts need to add value.

What other attributes does our product or service give to our customers besides the product or service itself? Does it save time? Does it save money? Does it bring people together? Is it fun to use? You get the drift.

marketingattention

For marketing to excel even further, we need to know our target audience. With good data about our audience, we can polish our marketing to their needs. That makes marketing more visible. When more visible, we have established preferences. This is particularly important in fashion clothing. When someone buys a shirt we then recommend a pair of pants or a tie.

To have complete data, we must track our customers’ purchases. If you aren’t using a sophisticated program you just ask. This can be done with an email to your customer.

Start a database of your customers. This can be a simple spreadsheet if you are operating on a budget. Keep in mind you want to track your customers’ buying habits. Update it. Keep it current.

Creating online accounts benefit you and your customers. Most likely they’ll find it more of a benefit. This aids in your database information and future marketing promotions.

If you are using more traditional ways (email or direct marketing) to market to your audience, you’ll need to focus more on your written copy. Design your messages around discounts and new products or services. You may also want to add industry trends and future developments in your field.

Add value to cut through the noise to your target audience. You’ll be glad you did.
