    #12 Thanks for the comment and the compliment @Sara Jacobovici... I for one like to think in the car when I'm driving alone; I also love thinking with a "white board"... no pun intended : ) The question regarding boundaries is a great one... I think boundaries can be a great contradiction and many we create (both literally and figuratively) so that we can function and co-exist in groups greater than ten; the rub is we need to tear down or disregard boundaries to grow and become better. I haven't done justice to this so I am hoping people jump into this conversation as it speaks to how we co-exist, work together, stretch to be better and organize ourselves so we don't fall into anarchy.

    As always @Graham🐝 Edwards, you produced a very thought provoking piece. You've left me with much "to think about". Three things that stand out for me right now is, 1. "where" we choose to think is crucial. You offer an option. An important one. Your readers touched upon other "places" to think. So not only do we want to make time to think, we need to prepare that "space"within which we can think. And 2. (sorry, I am paradox obsessed) the idea of white as an "empty" space when one of its definitions is, "White is produced when all colors of the visible spectrum are combined." Finally 3., "White space is a process management concept described by Geary A. Rummler and Alan P. Brache in 1991 as the area between the boxes in an organizational chart; where, very often, no one is in charge." This leads to questions like; where do the boundaries come from, how were they defined and marked, what does take place when "no one is in charge"? This takes me in so many directions....have to find the place and time to think this through! Thanks Graham.

    Whether it is the white space as design element or white space as for thinking, appreciation is central and over time it works on us, and even better when we are not trying to change but actually learning to appreciate (both in value and values meaning of the word - appreciation).

    I will certainly vouch for this. The ages between 17 and 37 and 37 and next year when I reach 57 are vastly different 20 year development periods (night and day in difference). The earlier involved absolutely not an iota of reading and daydreaming rather than thinking and ultimately time passing rather than appreciation.

    I would not be doing this today, if I did not see the difference it has made in my life - and continues to make as time flows forward.

    I heard Juliet Funt give a speach on your latter definition. It was a conference full of Business Analysts usually consumed with their Busy-ness.
    It was a standing ovation. Please "think" about checking it out: http://www.whitespaceatwork.com/

    Reminds me of how M. Scott Peck described how we can learn anything if we give it enough attention. He described how he helped a lady get her car out of emergency parking, despite his lack of mechanical skill.

    Graham, I've been told that the "space" between my ears is a brilliant blue-white — and substantially unbroken by anything worthwhile. Of course, I don't put much stock in that because I've also been told to perform some physical exercises that are clearly anatomically impossible. Good post here. Pinpoints something we all should be taking seriously. Cheers!

    OR to look at it from the other side: No matter how hard you work does that stop the boss from calling just as you're rushing out the door to your child's concert and you're just sure you're going to miss her solo but just as you pull into the crowded parking lot another car is backing out right in front of the door, so you make it to your seat just as your little girl comes on stage?

    Nice buzz, Emily! A few thoughts:
    1) I don't see anything wrong with wishing someone "good luck" as it's a positive message IMHO. It shows you hope good things come their way.
    2) Luck and timing are both intangible factors which are beyond our control. However, both can play a pivotal role in life, including job attainment and advancement.
    3) Saying: "The harder I work, the luckier I get."
    4) To the last point, people can help themselves leverage good luck -- if and when if strikes -- by preparing for it. How? Work your tail off, set big goals, network, think positive, believe in your dreams, etc. On the flipside, if an opportunity luckily comes along but the individual is unprepared to seize it, then that's a big opportunity missed. Moreover, these luck-related opportunities don't come around too often (in my experience).
    In essence, luck is one of many factors which may or may not contribute to one's success in work, relationships and life generally.

    #2 It has been working for me during many years @Sarah Elkins. 30 years ago I had the lucky opportunity to attend a Silva Mind Control Course, here in Madrid. And one of the most important aspects in Silva Method are visualizations.
    And it still works for little things, like for example finding a place to park in the center of the city o finding the way to go somewhere. And probably it works at this little level because I truly and deeply believe it is possible. The main point is what you say in your first comment about "truly believe it's possible, and ignore those internal messages that tell you it's not". And sometimes those internal messages are so internal that we don't even realize they are there.
    Our subconsciousness has his own life...

    I've been using this technique for years, and I'm on the fence about its effectiveness, @Melissa Hughes. I think in order to implement this technique, you have to truly believe it's possible, and ignore those internal messages that tell you it's not. How many of us can truly quiet those questions about our competence and value? Is the ability to visualize and make things happen common? I don't think so. Can it be taught? That's the question.

    What about you and your readers; those of us who are not superstar Hollywood icons, Olympic champions, and Nobel award winners, does this work for you?

    "YOUR words...can change someone's Thinking, Feelings, Actions, Habits, Character, Destiny, and Legacy." This is something I believe completely and try to be mindful of. The words you tell yourself are as important as the words to speak to others. We live in a world where so many feel compelled to criticize, condemn and complain. People very easily slash at the character of others with their words but find it difficult to pay a sincere compliment or utter words of support, warmth and love.

    A few years ago I was paying for my groceries and the lady behind me at the checkout was with a little girl about six years old whose face was deformed. I think this was a mother and her daughter, but I cannot be sure since the woman was so mean and cruel to the little girl. I remembered something I read in a book by Wayne Dyer which said we are all as perfect as we were intended to be. We tend to think of people with disabilities and chronic health conditions as being imperfect, and as a result we project that thought onto children and others. That is unfair since our true nature is one which is perfect and without limits. I asked the little girl if she was a princess and told her I thought she must be one because she was so beautiful. I hope my words gave her some peace that day and made her mother reconsider her behaviour. I often think of that poor girl. I hope she learns to temper the cruelty of this world with the knowledge that she is the only one who can truly define who she is.

I agree that connection is so important because I feel what is part of programming that is whom we associate will on a daily basis (in person, online, audios) and the books we read. All this go in to are subconscious. This "underwater iceberg" is the root our words in which triggers the rest of which you wrote.

    What I take away, @Kwesi Millington, is that being in alignment with who we are is the best way to interact with the world. But it can be hard work to spend the time to know ourselves properly, because so much of modern life is about consuming what other people want us to want. And being who others want us to be. But joy and the power that comes from expressing positive energy is an inside job of meshing our thoughts and feelings.

    Adam - I have been in your shoes. When I had been turned down for different promotions 3 different times, even after receiving awards like employee of the month and employee of the year - I decided to take my destiny in my own hands. I had been through 13 different managers in just 5 years. It was obvious that my employer did not understand their own employees.

    So, I took my boss out to lunch - asked her what she thought of my performance, talked about ideas I had to improve revenue and asked what else I needed to do to be put in a leadership role. For me, that worked, less than 1 month later I was promoted. Working hard sometimes does not pay off for some of us if our employer does not recognize it. Some companies have bad management teams. Some think they need to go outside the company to bring in new ideas and yes, other times it's all about office politics.

    Flash forward to now - I am an entrepreneur and own two companies - as I recognized that I was much more forward thinking and innovative than some of my industry could handle.

    I speak to many job seekers and people in current companies in your position - yes, it is sometimes challenging for the "doers" and hardworkers to get recognized. That is part of bad managers who hire their friends and family over others who have paid their dues.

    What advice I would give you is to start communicating with your boss - be open about your career expectations and don't be afraid to ask how to get there. If they don't recognize you as a leader - move on.

    Your last comment about "stop trying to be good at your job" - DON'T stop doing that. Continue to be great at your job - because it's right for you as an individual - to learn and grow and take those skills to the next employer if necessary or your own company. :-)

    Sounds to me that you are a natural born entrepreneur. Here is the first thing to know about an entrerpreneur, some actually start companies because they love the entrepreneurial spirit of starting companies and then they sell them instead of managing them.

    Now that is the presumption that one is solely entrepreneurial minded, but here there is a desire expressed for managerial mind. Other entrepreneurs do become the boss of the companies they founded because they want to scale what they founded.

    At some point the aspect of promotion is going to come into play and either it shaped like an administrator minded succession planning process or something entirely new maybe conceived. The best way to change the system is to own the system and then if it devolves quickly into the political then that is one window as to how promotions come into being.

    There was a time when Bill Gates paid no attention to K-Street and special interest. That is until special interest gathered like a dark storm cloud and hit Microsoft with anti-trust regulations - quickly Gates pivoted to the political, he had to because that was the nature of the beast at the size he led Microsoft to. So politics will seep in somewhere in the life of any organization.

    There is a good reason why geeks and suits are called geeks and called suits. Bill Gates was a geek who became a major suit, and at some point the entrepreneurial, the technical, the managerial and the political need to be understood. Founders who sell the companies they founded want the entrepreneurial and technical but not the managerial and political. The long-game includes an appreciation of all four. Otherwise it is another kind of game called us and them. It comes down to playing that long-game.

    David B. Grinberg
    15/12/2016 #1 David B. Grinberg
    Adam, nice buzz. A few thoughts:
    1) In an ideal work world everyone would be promoted based on their skills, talents, abilities and merit -- period. But this is not always the case.
    2) A confluence of factors can results in a promotion, such as luck and timing. Even if someone is doing outstanding work, the employer might be downsizing, merging, or have related resource constrains.
    3) We've all heard that saying, it's not always what you know but who you know. Thus networking can pay big dividends.
    4) To the last point, that's what make beBee so unique: personal networking through passions and shared interests to build stronger business relationships. It works offline too.
    5) Unfortunately, just as life isn't always far, neither is the workplace. Sometimes people get promoted due to an employer factoring in race, gender, ethnicity, etc., and giving extra weight to those groups of people due to diversity efforts or to check off a box for upper management.
    Thank you for considering these thoughts based on my own work experiences. Keep buzzing!

    @Adel de Meyer. Thanks for the interesting post. Entrepreneurial success is not only what you have listed, but an attitude to 'start up' and be passionate about that. Today's entrepreneur do not need manpower as a board member but an all rounder to understand the business process with a concept. With the use of digitization our 'walk the walk' has become at the speed of light and still there are barriers and hurdles. Start up failures are more than the successes. Why and want went wrong? May be capital and preparedness before launch. Thanks and reagrds

    "It's a dirty job, but somebody's gotta do it" sez the Devil's Advocate, @Graham🐝 Edwards.

    Interesting that it identifies a classic groupThink weakness within any organization (https://www.bebee.com/producer/@john-vaughan/the-emperor-s-new-clothes-epilogue)

    As a BA-with-design-skills and ex-Documentation Manager, I agree with @Jared 🐝 Wiese's observations on the role. It may be self-serving, but UX is often at the cutting edge of making such 'critical' (in both senses of the word) observations ... and coming up with solutions. By the samed token, those unpleasant (but necessary) critical-as-in-negative observations often result in a big ole Target On The Back, thanks to protective Team Players.

    Excellent article. Not exactly 'new news", but it needs to be repeated. And heard. Especially here at beBee.

    Here's a radical concept:
    beBee has a large investment in subsidizing 'branding advocates' (https://www.bebee.com/producer/@john-vaughan/priming-the-pump). Wouldn't it be swell if they also subsidized a Devil's Advocate?

    Perhaps it is because there's so much true to it, or just because I'm one of those Millennials, but I live this often, @Graham🐝 Edwards. It's not just a generational thing, to be fair, but we often (especially at work) fail to disassociate the idea from the individual raising it. The idea is simply that - a thought - and may or may not be unique to the situation or the individual. If you can understand an idea it doesn't make it any more yours than the one who proposed it (sorry about that patent, Graham!). Credit should be given when due, of course, but ONLY after the idea turns into action (hopefully following @Sara Jacobovici's CTA advice...), but until that time, it hangs amongst the collective group discussing it. The progress (and general happiness!) we'd enjoy if we could take this approach more often...

    @Graham🐝 Edwards, you might want to check out Red Team, by Micah Zenko. I have not read it, but heard this about it:
    "In order to spot catastrophic mistakes, organizations exposed to huge risks use red teams. A red team is made up of a collection of experts who try to break a system and expose its weak spots."

    I loved the idea of being open enough to challenging an idea. I agree with Preston #3 on liking the phrase "Refine the idea."

    For a more personal take, search "legs" on the following link too ;) Gotta love Tony Robbins. It comes from his amazing book, Awaken the Giant Within.

    Great Article. I like the phrase "Refine the idea." When we welcome constructive criticism, our idea is refined as silver is being passed through the fire. It takes the impurities out. I, myself, love to welcome constructive criticism.
    "As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another." (Proverb 27:17) This is another proverb I love. There is mutual benefit in the rubbing of two iron blades together; the edges become sharper, making the knives more efficient in their task to cut and slice. The proverb also indicates the need for constant fellowship with one another. This is universal even with sharing our ideas.

    Great Article, I feel that your #3 on that list is the most important for me. After I found the right mentor, or accountability partner, everything began to fall into place. He was the one who kept me accountable to me daily reading, which I did not want to do at first. I was a person who wanted to blame my life on circumstances. They became a dictator over choices. After a lot of reading, and changing of my mindset, I naturally began to realize I was in control a put the rest of your list in my life.

    Very timely post, @Nir Eyal. I really enjoy the irony of this quote:

    "I’ve lost count of the times I’ve heard someone disparage an academic or an industry colleague as a hack, a charlatan, or an idea thief. As the political scientist Wallace Sayre has been credited as saying, “In any dispute the intensity of feeling is inversely proportional to the value of the issues at stake.” Hence, we argue most about the things that matter least."

    Those that spend a lot of time arguing are diminishing their own brand-spanking-new idea generation time. Often for very trivial points that represent a Pyrrhic victory.

    I did not select any specific hive, it will find it's way where it wants to go. I merely wanted to throw my card on the table so as to start engaging a little more than what I have done so far. Lately, I have been a little absent as you may know. That is another story all together. My circumstances have prevented me to be as sociable as I have wanted to be. Over the last few weeks I have finally found a place where I can operate from to my satisfaction. I will expand my views of either side of the line soon, and regard this entry as a more realistic"opening move" into the beBee Community than what I did in my first article a while ago. My new design is a different theme of a concept that I have used before. #7

    #6 Got it; the simplistic "key words"...made it hard for me to see the context in which the whiteboard "lives".

    It is my way of depicting how to choose a path in the chaos of a complex world Gerald. We define our own moments of reality depending what filter we use at the time of observation. I appreciate your comment. We are often very quick to jump to conclusions. A picture is worth a thousand words. Thought in itself, creates conflict. Hence the question whether I AM neutral or not. I sincerely doubt if others are.#5

    #4 @April Lynn Unfortunately, (for me anyway) that has proven to be no more helpful than "skeptic" spanning the columns at the bottom; perhaps it's far too sublime for a Luddite like me to appreciate --I will consult a master rhetorician for clarification.

    I believe that this is the most juvenile post I've come across on this platform --thank you for lowering the bar by so many orders of magnitude!

    Thanks for noticing the bee’s knees Javier. Spot on for choosing the right side. My statement was meant to optimistic, from a cynical perspective. Thanks for sharing. #1

    @🐝 Frans van Wamel, optimists always find solutions not problems, and see strengths where others see weak. That is the reason why some get far in life, and others do no ! I am on the right side ! DREAM BIG !
See all
