    One of the things I tell my prospective consulting clients is that it is not that I am so smart, but that I've already made virtually all of the mistakes they might make, and so can help them avoid most of the pitfalls. The tagline on my marketing collateral is, "Because experience always matters ..."

    #3 Robert, I agree that we need to keep busy, and as you suggest, busy in a meaningful way. I am amazed at the amount of things that seniors/boomers are doing to help others, which makes our lives more meaningful. You are spot on with your statement that volunteer means something different than it did a few years back. I also think that many organisations are failing to attract our age group because they don't understand what we want to achieve and that we need flexibility.

    @Royce Shook Cool article, I don't believe there is such a thing as retirement! I was fortunate enough to sell my company at 50 and "retire' to Bali. Within 3 months I was boring myself into an early grave ( or a funeral pyre as they do here) So I re - invented myself as a writer of books, articles and trivia.

    What a great read this morning @David Chislett. We live in a symbiotic world. Each action is felt by many as we walk on our journey. Even the caveman experience, as simple as the needs were, they were buffeted by each other. Somewhere along the way our communications have awakened a dark side of the human experience. My on opinion is that we have left some core values behind in the name of success. Existence is such a blessing and we tend to waste it on some very meaningless dialogue that only serves to heighten our lower functioning brain.

    I have always thought that knowledge takes away the darkness of fear. I am amazed that with 2+trillion of student loan debt that we would be motivated by a media that thrives on triggering our lower brain function. I watch citizens who become destructive over events, religious values stretched to include mass murder and people who would grab all that they could at the expense of others, in shear frustration. These along with other actions only serve to broaden the self destructive behavior we are experiencing.

    The larger question that looms, how can we reverse this process of madness? My thought, one person/family at a time. Thanks for sharing your journey this morning.

    #25 - So true Ali. Once people begin to utilize bad behavior, on a regular basis, psychologists say it slowly becomes accepted behavior by family, friends and co-workers, for example. When someone rails against this behavior - as suspect or 'bad behavior' - the individual often begins to defend this behavior - we've all seen this happen in the political world. Eventually this individual becomes known for this behavior and even those new to their lives, learn from others, 'this is just how they are' and accept. Sad but very true.

    #41 One memory that is the best a woman will ever experience is giving birth. At first the memory of the pain a woman endures causes her to think, "I will never go through this again." But not long after (timing can be different for each woman) they only remember the sheer love they felt after giving birth. That love continues to grow and because of those good memories, women go on to have more children even though they endure such pain to do so. Love for a child negates the pain. That's just one example I can think of. Thanks Ali!

    Its been said not to dwell on our past but there are many lessons we can learn from our past. With lessons learned we can change our present and future outcomes. We could not move forward if not for our past. Even good memories serve a purpose, some make us smile again and again, this is healthy.

    Dear Ali, I have often heard it said that every soul, garbed in a veiled pattern of persistent tendencies called Vasanas, enters the corporeal embryo in the 3 to 9 months prior to delivery, post conception. The family, locality, society and location of birth, and the nature of one's physique and character is determined by the pattern downloaded by the body. Life is nothing but an unfolding of situations that manifest these tendencies and test the individual. This cycle/pattern is repeated ad infinitum over many lifetimes until the tendencies are neutralised through experience (non-habit forming); understanding, acceptance and total surrender to a higher will. The pattern finally evolves to unity. Just another perspective that a pattern is also a framework of reference that denotes a particular state of being. :) Thank you Sir.

    #31 @James O'Connell- I love this part of your comment "You can't live in the future but you can live in the past. Similarly, you can't change your past but you can change your future". This is a very astute writing. I wrote once on situations that are not reversible. For example, if it is sunny and clear sky we can be sure it shall not be a rainy. In contrast, if it is cloudy it shall nor be equally certain it shall rain. Your comment provides a very interesting example. A lot to ponder on.

    INTJ here. I have found that while I am not particularly adept at sales, I am very adept at support. Of course this is just from a phone perspective. I can take incoming calls where I am supposed to be the expert, just not very good at outgoing calls to instigate the conversation, except in cases where I am returning them. Being introverted to me, says more about how I process the world internally and where I find my inspiration to learn stuff. As a Project Manager, something I have done for a living, the key has always been knowing my processes cold for running meetings and such, innovation comes in the quiet time, if I can find a place to think.

    Yes, Deb!! My thoughts exactly! Although I'm an introvert, I'm far from anti social or un-communicative. With the exception of a few jobs like public speaker or outbound sales, an outgoing personality won't make a better employee (and I'm willing to bet it's a rare occasion that introverts would even apply for those positions!) I agree that the biggest qualifier should be whether you can do the job, and it's unfortunate that introverts are expected to change their behavior or overcome their "weaknesses" just to be on a level playing field. Great response!!

    10/10/2016 #5 Deb 🐝 Helfrich
    Funny how we were just having this conversation elsewhere.... the gist being that introversion and shyness are not synonymous.

    The problem with using personality characteristics is that people are very multi-layered and even a very very introverted person like myself will react to different situations in different ways based on a number of criteria. My own opinion is that job interviews need to be focused on something they mostly ignore right now - can the person do the job. Forget about background, personality, and hypothetical situations. Define questions to ask all the candidates about the work that needs to get done in the next month, 90 days, six months, etc. Ask them how they would accomplish x or contribute to y. Compare apples to apples.

    Nice to meet you @Christine Baker - Welcome to beBee - keep on buzzing!

    As a repetive scoring INTJ in countless Myers-Briggs instruments, I can relate. Still, sometimes your social environment forces you to negate your default personality setting. For example, as an INTJ I had to express E-NTJ tendencies because my job--infantry officer--required that I lead and communicate often. Especially in front of crowds of soldiers. So, in spite of my natural anxieties in front of crowds, being a leader meant pushing my boundaries and suppressing shyness.
    Thank you for championing introverts.

    You have hit on a key issue that our society is experiencing now. You could even broaden the concept of respect out to things like economic imperialism, which in actuality, spawned the global terrorist movement. Imperialist nations historically have shown a total lack of respect for the countries they were conquering and pillaging. And there's really very little need to get into the current political situation in the US other than to say that it was caused by a complete lack of respect between liberal and conservative ideologies. I know I am dwelling on the negative side of respect. But frankly it's all around us now and I find the need to speak out about it as you obviously do. Respect and tolerance go hand in hand. Great post Kev.

    Rodney Dangerfield's quotes and Aretha Franklin's R-E-S-P-E-C-T are great ways to illustrate this post, Kev.

    #32 #33 Thanks so much for commenting and sharing Sarah. It's amazing how the really important things were taught to us as kids... "Treat others in the way you want to be treated." Keep spreading the message!

    "Why do so many people feel that giving someone respect is the same as surrendering to their ideologies?" Indeed. I've written a couple of articles along these lines, one was Respect vs. Being Respectful, acknowledging that we can treat someone respectfully (taking the high road), without respecting him/her. Behave respectfully, and your relationships will improve - and you'll be happier. Really.

    This is such an important concept, @Kevin Pashuk, and you presented it beautifully. "Why do so many people feel that giving someone respect is the same as surrendering to their ideologies?" Indeed. I've written a couple of articles along these lines, one was Respect vs. Being Respectful, acknowledging that we can treat someone respectfully (taking the high road), without respecting him/her. Another one was about being respectful and good ambassadors/role models for our children. If we are rude and inconsiderate to others, especially to our children and partners, we cannot expect them to be polite and considerate to anyone, especially us! Good reminders here, Kevin, sharing for sure.

    #30 Thanks Phil. I'm certainly in agreement that real respect is more than back pats... Constructive truth is a foundation of love and respect in action.

    #17 #16 - So as not to disappoint you, Kevin, or Jim, or for that matter Don, I agree one 125% with everything you've said here. And I think what you've said is important. I am, however, moved to add --- here it comes, the ubiquitous proviso --- that respect often involves treating others as equals, as much in your expectations of them as in your willingness to tolerate their foibles.

    To my mind, that means not letting friends express half-assed ideas and opinions, without at least calling for them to discuss and defend them. The obverse of this is, for me at least, that simply patting everyone on the back (or head) and saying great job, independent of the facts, is a form of disrespect.

    We love our children (at least when they are very young and cute) and we nurture them with an abundance of the kind of positive reinforcement intended to build their senses of self-worth and self-respect... but we do not in doing so "respect" them. It is only later when they grow into capable adults, worthy or our questioning of, and disagreement with them that we exhibit true respect for them as fully capable adult persons.

    My point: love and caring are not synonymous with respect. Witness that we can, or should be able to respect people we don't like. Great post... with all due respect.

    Dear @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee and @Irene Hackett. I have not forgotten the encouragement to develop the concept of being on the edge of a triad. I'm working on it and studying the comments from you both. I was working on something focusing on duality and integration and thought of the possibility that the duality of the edge, one side connected to the sides that enclose the triad, the internal side facing the triad and the external side, although connected with other edges, the external side faces away from the containment produced by the triad. Could this external boundary be the edge of integration formed in the contained internal area, or integrated area, where we do not experience the integration? So we are not just discussing being on the edge but whether we are on the internal or external side of the edge; a duality holding a triad containing the integrated area formed by the internal side of the edge. Just updating you both with some of the thoughts going through my mind. I hope I am not travelling too far beyond the original concept. Please let me know.

    Many great ideas, Kazi!

    I also like to remember communications 101:
    1) say what you are going to tell them, short and sweet points;
    2) tell them (yes, with stories they can relate to) ;
    3) tell them again what you just told them!

    Careful on the stories. The more you talk, the less they listen. People only take away 10% of what they heard.

    #10 Thanks so much for commenting, Ben, you're too funny. While I can't definitely answer the question of whether Hillary has the stamina to the President, I can say that I most certainly don't -- nor would I ever want that position. For one thing, I lack key prerequisites such as having a pretty face, good hair and being telegenic. I got my share of national politics early in life and that was more than enough for me. That's why I became a registered Independent shortly after leaving the WH (and have been so ever since then). But, fear not, YOU have my vote and I'll even be your campaign press secretary.

Campaigns don't pay well to begin with. Thus, with all the time and effort one puts into it, you can still end up with nothing if the candidate loses.

    @Don 🐝 Kerr you are correct...We allow technology and it's wow factor to blur the lines of real communication and engagement... and that's sad...The real value of a heated debate gets lost with a lot of superficial congeniality not to hurt feelings, and we lose that ability to respectfully disagree as an individual in community. Overall, social media has changed the human race into a bunch of human interfaces and followers and less engagement and relationship building. It's nice to know so many people , but it's harder to build long sustainable relationships...πŸ˜‡

    Couple points, I do think social media is making the masses dumber - self included, because of the speed , so @Jim Murray I agree with on that but the conspiracy theory is a hard buy or sell☺. @Kevin Pashuk I do curate myself and I like the option to do this via mute, block delete. I do think that eventually bebee will have no choice but to curate at some level because it's hard to please everyone, and already you have persons accostomed to the curation at other platforms trying hard to get it imposed here. This is sad, but it's real...I like beBee because of its openness.

    #107 Robert, being a writer and an editor, I have a ingrained aversion to the "Live Buzz" in which one cannot polish up that which is sent out. There may be something to say for spontaneity, but in my experience very little. You either practice first up the wazoo, which means the spontaneous "Live Buzz" is heavily rehearsed, or you blabber and drivel. I know almost no speakers who are good at cold extemporization. Now if you're talking about the increased use of video, as in edited, I agree entirely with you. Thank you for reading and commenting.

    Interesting discussion, lads. Social media is here to stay, and the introduction of videos will make users more "vocal." Does being more "vocal" add a dimension to discussion? Hard to say. Considering we'll spend more time setting up for a video cast than we will reading a post is a bit frightening. I'm also worried we'll stop writing and just blab. I guess that's where social media started (in the villages, etc.).

    Shared across my SM streams. Your journey has touched me, bringing up old memories that still sting even after 40+ years. I was 17, and still hoping to qualify for the Olympic swimming team, when my aunt was dying from cancer. My mother, grandmother and uncle's agony was palpable. I was sent out to play with my cousins to "take their minds off of it." The stark contrast between my reality and what my aunt as going through was more than I could take in. Now that I am grown and more able to deal with mortality I wish I had been able to help more, to console my uncle, and "be" there with my aunt so she didn't feel so alone. This book needs to be written for a whole host of reasons, not the least of which because it will help us remember that sometimes the greatest gift we can give is love.

    #22 Philosophies are pretty rigid, but can be changed. I would put 'partisanship' in this mix. Garrison Kiellor of Prairie Home Companion fame once stated (and I paraphrase) on the radio show. "My grandfather was a Democrat. My father was a Democrat. Therefore, if the Democrats ran a blind, three-legged dog named Lucky as their candidate, I'd have no choice but to vote for the damn thing." If something ultimately challenges your philosophies, and you agree there is truth to the argument, you can certainly change, or 'evolve' as you put it.

    Staying true to myself - I do things that I am comfortable with without compulsion from others. Once I was asked to give a grade A to a colleague but I refused because it was against my principle of fair appraisal. The colleague did not deserve that grade, yet.
    Give more than you should - I call this value added and people love this. Giving more than people expect just adds that extra quality. I find that people remember you more and thank you more after that.
    Always be good to your clients - Make them feel comfortable even if they are unhappy. Find out why if there are troubles. Help them as much as you can.

    #8 Organizations and Corporations seem to have way too many 'values' in my experience... and in my experience, they are put there for show, rather than to state things that are uncompromisingly firm in the way they conduct themselves.

    In my post, I am talking about personal values... things you would be willing to risk your career over rather than cross the line. As an example, I was asked by the President of a company I worked for to call a client and tell him a substantial portion of the work was completed, which was a complete falsehood. I asked him why I should call instead of him. His reply? "They trust you." My reply to him was "{his name}, if I lie for you, I will lie to you." and refused to call. I went back to my office fully expecting to be handed a cardboard box. Instead, we were able (later, after the anger cooled down) to have a solid meeting around a path forward. We are still connected on social media today.

    Thank you @Kevin Pashuk for sharing your insightful and experienced post. There are many core values easily affordable, such as courtesy, confidence, ingenuity, thrift, and so on. The trouble is more how to prioritize them with efficiency than to list them, regarding the business context and its expectations. They will support, most of the time, a corporate culture shared, to drive a brand value targeted, directly profitable into the customer approaches and its interactions : Integrity - Accountability - Diligence - Perseverance - Discipline...As beBee seems to do. ;)

    Interesting, but I do get tired of telling you that. So let's make it a blanket assumption from here on out. I thought about your core values question and doing so made me realize that I have only one core value and that its to be human. And by that I mean, speak the truth as I perceive it,, criticize constructively and trust my own instincts. That last one is admittedly quite difficult because in some cases the situation gets in the way. Thanks for waking me up, because it's almost time for the ball game.

I can ascertain, however, that there are indeed monkeys on Lombok. Perhaps they were very recently introduced?

I suggested the topic of time as a possibility. I would even suggest here to title it "Curtain of Time". Behind the invisible curtain we have our imaginations, surprises and expectations. May be one day you and I would consider co-authoring an ebook as well. This possibility suggests alsoand so I add behind the curtain of time lies also possibilities. You are a grand soul Lisa.

    #59 Thank you @debasish majumder, I feel I have been quieter than normal lately! Very kind of you and I admire @Sara Jacobovici who's mind I could never compete with. Not that I would ever try to compete lol, she's a very talented woman. I would love to see a book co-authored by Sara & @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee. It wouldn't be hard, you both could do a compilation of the many convo's you've had on beBee... so much to share with the world! Debasish, you are admired too, you have a very caring soul!

    #53 #54 #55 - Can appreciation wait? My deep appreciation for the hearts of hopeπŸ’•- dears @Cyndi wilkins, @CityVP 🐝 Manjit and @Tausif Mundrawala? May be I should first wait for dear @Sara Jacobovici to show her appreciation first, but I know she shall not respond till night. I am sure you all understand that I am toflattereded to find the words to express my gratitude and appreciation and gratitude to all of you. I am drowned in your "sea of appreciation", but then feel floating with your great support. Like ants make a raft so as not to sink in water, you all make a raft that makes me feel safe, encouraged and willing to do more.

    #55 For @Cyndi wilkins

    Dear Cyndi, my condolences to you and your family on your recent loss.

    At times like this I find there is solace in those who share a similiar experience, especially a daughter honoring her father. We do that in whatever way is right for us. @🐝 Fatima G. Williams wrote a personal blog about her father which is worth sharing again

    They say time is medicine ; I now believe it's a myth
    https://www.bebee.com/producer/@fatima-williams/they-say-time-is-medicine-i-now-believe-it-s-a-myth

    This is a time for sisters to share, and for us to stand back and let two daughters speak in private, for in these conversations there is a knowing and a feeling that goes beyond what anyone can say in their respects and the all the solemn words of comfort.

    Sincerely
    Manjit

    We are not instructed to love our parents. We are instructed to honor...So in honor of my father I say, β€œAba, not one day passes when I don’t think of you.” You have no idea how much this means to me right now @CityVP 🐝 Manjit View more

    #53 Dear @Cyndi wilkins do you know why I like being online?

    I have a big, big family - they are integrated, they are noisy, every weekend there is little difference between a party and the family as they are. In these moments I get to spend time by myself and I am alone with my thoughts - and as soon as I have finished this, I am back into the communal spirit. Family is important to me, but privacy even more so - in that regard I am different to all those around me - they like being together and when the girls who married come home on the weekend - the noise volumes go up.

    And then there is these times when I get to be alone with my thoughts to let them flow. I get to be with my family as I grow. What can there possibly be anything in life greater than that.

    Do you know what I like about Sara?
    She has similiar inclinations - and I know that, I know that for sure - not here at beBee but out there back in Israel.

    I know it in the story of Ida
    http://blogs.timesofisrael.com/honoring-my-mother-in-life-2/

    I know it in the story of Joseph
    http://blogs.timesofisrael.com/to-honor-the-father/

    Those two blogs stand shoulder above anything else she has written because she has touched upon the two most important people in the world. A mother. A father.

    It is not her intellect or her ability to recognize the human spirit - it is who she loves more than anything in the world.
    That kind of heart - rest assured. I know it. I honour it. The same is true of @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee - and these hearts are what I call greatness.

    What an honor you have bestowed upon such a deserving "Force to be reckoned with" @CityVP 🐝 Manjit... "Appreciation"....I made a comment on a recent post and noticed that Sara had made a comment immediately following mine making mention of what an honor it was to be following the comments of two other heavy hitters on LI...I was not one that she mentioned initially, but when she noticed that I had chimed in just before her, she immediately came back in and apologized for the oversight...Who does that? "Depth to cognitive capability"... OKAY...This woman sets my brain afire!...."Sara is in flow when she enters conversations.".... Not only is she in the flow, she commands that you be too...It took me a good twelve hours of restful sleep to answer to one of her recent inquiries...@Sara Jacobovici and @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee stand alone in their own right...They are two incredible powerhouses on this platform...Personally, I would love to see them pair with other authors who could greatly benefit from their guidance...Not that they do not compliment each other...But the energy generated by their combined circuitry might blow a fuse around here;-)

    She is supportive in all aspects. She and Sir Ali Anani have help build this wonderful network of intellectuals. She deserves this appreciative buzz.

    #47 This is a buzz that I would love to hang on a wall on my profile page. Fatima [ @🐝 Fatima G. Williams ] drew attention to his buzz some weeks ago as she recollected it and on the day I wrote it, it was considerably special and that is the quality of the finest wine also - it gets better with age - which you mention in your comment "Time reveals". If I had a wall on my profile page, I would simply call it APPRECIATION - "Appreciation" is a most magnificent word - it is the most important [YES MOST IMPORTANT] word of the 21st Century.

    Time reveals and acts like a time source to make certain issues cleare or as a magnet to spotify certain behaviors. This is what I feel now having read this buzz again. The main clarification that I became aware of is your writing dear @CityVP 🐝 Manjit View more
    Time reveals and acts like a time source to make certain issues cleare or as a magnet to spotify certain behaviors. This is what I feel now having read this buzz again. The main clarification that I became aware of is your writing dear @CityVP 🐝 Manjit "The second of those qualities is depth to cognitive capability. It is the kind that Ali Anani is constantly recognizing and when he is interacting with her, the exchanges elevate and the conversation becomes that much more enriched". It is not that you mentioned my name (and this is honorable) as much as it is the credibility of this statement. Now, dear @Sara Jacobovici have an amazing synchronicity and we have been inspirational to each other. May be a minimum of ten buzzes have been authored by both of us based on our exchanges of comments. Yes, I find the value of this buzz increasing with time. Close
