    i guess, personal contributions with rich values and pertinent appeals are most significant in an affinity based platform, where the platform will become a 'Brand' of distinction. so the potentialities and sincere endeavor with rich constituents are essentially to enrich a brand's value. there only lies the gravity of a person. apart from affinity and associating skill, a brand cannot be popular. so personal brand, i guess is relevant, moment the person is having the capacity to contribute or share his skill to usher majority, and thus the platform on which he or she is sharing makes the platform a unique 'brand'. however, lovely insight @Javier 🐝 beBee! enjoyed read. thank you for the share.

    "A lot of people end up sacrificing their dreams. Frank Capra knew that way back in the day when he created “It’s A Wonderful Life”, and it’s a very common theme in both literature and film." It's a very common theme in life in general...What would it really matter to the world if I was not here? Well @Jim Murray...I have to share with you my "It's a Wonderful Life" moment...After taking several weeks away from my practice to care for my father at the end of his "Wonderful Life," the first client I treated upon my return came into my office and broke down in tears...Yes, she had sympathy for me and what I had just been through personally, but more than that, she missed ME...ME...This person she and her body had grown accustomed to seeing...week after week...for relief of her physical discomfort and calming of her mind. She is a kidney transplant patient from birth...thirty five years old and looks like my grandmother...and she missed our time together. I am certainly not working miracles for anyone like Clarence might have done...I am just a human being giving what I can offer...My Time...My Patience...and My Love...That is all I have to give...and I know now, that it is enough...Thank you for the reminder;-)

    #3 @Paul Walters. Sounds to me like you are the best qualified writer to create a treatment for it. The advice I have is simple: encapsulate the story. Don't think of it as anything that's going to be a movie, because the people who read it need to have room to imagine it as such. Don't indicate any camera moves or any sort of cinematic visions. Just break it down into scenes, describe the scenes, dimensionalize the characters and connect the story dots. If you like I can send you one of mine. I actually don't believe in them a lot, because it's just as easy to write the screenplay and a lot more fun. Message me an email address.

It wasn't a hassle because the account guy and my art director where both people I was working with in the agency and we were all on top of our game. But I didn't let go of the agency gig for more than 2 years. So that's where this idea came from.

    Finally, a voice of reason! Jim, this is hands down the best advice I've read on the subject.

    25 years ago, with more balls than brains, I turned my back on a stable career to pursue impassioned dreams of fortune and glory. The failed venture left me broke and struggling with debt for more than ten years. I suspect that my experience is far more common than the triumph and satisfaction promised by the "Do What You Love And The Money Will Follow" snake oil peddlers.

    Thankfully I was young enough that I had plenty of time to recover. This might not be the case for those passion seekers struggling through midlife burnout. The statistics are well documented. Nine out of ten business ventures fail within the first three years. Never cash out a retirement fund to pursue a dream. If you are gonna be dumb, you'd better be young.

    Humans are a funny lot. This post should be garnering far more attention and engagement than it has. I suppose it's because of the mortal proclivity to only hear and see what we want to hear and see, and not what we need to.

    Great post @Don 🐝 Kerr. As you are aware we Canucks are home to the busiest highway in the world i.e. 401. According to stats, 1m vehicles per day. Apparently a very annal Canadian sat on the side of the 401and counted until the puck dropped at the Air Canada Centre or he had to go to the bathroom and didn't want to urinate on the 401. Polite eh? Maybe we can include a beBee sign up as part of the 407 toll? Then they can find like minded beBees who hate the toll? In the meantime, I will do my part to introduce beBee to SWO.

    I concur with you Don that beBee is fortunate to have so many talented Canadians on this budding social platform. In fact, Canadian talent might be over represented based on a statistical analysis based on proportionality of the respective populations.
    Therefore, I think it should be expected that beBee will have more total users in the USA compared to Canada based on sheer numbers alone. To wit: the U.S. population is about 325 million compared to about 36 million for our northern neighbor. Thus, your savvy statistical analysis helps put the pending North American swarm into greater perspective. Thanks for the good buzz!

    Phil Friedman
    23/11/2016 #8 Phil Friedman
    @Don 🐝 Kerr, nice piece, indeed. I suggest that the number of Canadian writers on beBee is disproportionately high, while the number of Canadian users is, as you've pointed out, disproportionately low. Why?

    My bet is that the disparity is due to the fact the Canadian writer's community is historically very strong, and that Canadian writers grow and evolve in an environment that values freedom of expression and open exchange very highly. (Anyone who doubts that should watch a couple of installments of "Today in the House of Commons" or some such news program.) And that Canadian writers have found beBee to be a congenial platform for their activities. But that Canadian readers don't find the bulk of what's on the general feed inviting, precisely because it is too emotional and soft, and lacks the edgy humor and verbal give and take that Canadians genuinely love.

    This is obviously IMO, based on my 15 years living and working in Canada. And I stand to be corrected by you, Jim Murray, Kevin Pashuk, Paul "Pablo" Croubalian, Nicole Chardenet, Graham Edwards, Renée Cormier, or other Canadians on beBee. Cheers!

    Loved reading your story @Jim Murray. Especially since I lived in Toronto between 1984 and 2009. I have friends who live in every part of Toronto you mention. I have visited St. Catherines and spent much time in the wine country. It is not just that which made the read so enjoyable. You are a true storyteller Jim, a great communicator. As @Phil Friedman said: "Best wishes to you and your wife for a very long, healthy, and happy stay in the new house. And cheers!"

    PS I moved to Toronto from Montreal. I have a little bit of a different perspective re Toronto's history and growth. One thing is that Toronto owes a lot to Renee Levesque (1968-1985) whose separatist party and government led to a huge move out of Montreal, not only of people but of businesses, especially head offices of international businesses, that changed the look of downtown Toronto.

    #16 Thanks @David B. Grinberg. Everybody keeps worrying about Trump becoming president. I never have. I have more faith in your country, and because I subscribe to the Good Old 80/20 Differential, you know what side of the he's on.

    Jim, are you sure this has nothing to do with the Toronto Blue Jays not being in the World Series? (lol). Seriously though, while I've never been to Toronto I've heard wonderful things about it. Plus, I figured if you lived there it had to be(Bee) good. Nonetheless, as I like to say: change is the only constant in life. With that in mind, Jim, it's St. Catharines today and Mars tomorrow (or in 10-20+ years)! Good luck with the move. Also, make some room for us in the USA just in case "you know who" magically becomes President and Americans must flee for greener pastures.

    I like your take on this @Paul "Pablo" Croubalian. There is plenty of self righteous or self-centered blame to go around. The only caution I would add is there is a difference between in both when you are in the minority and in the majority. I believe those in the majority should make an effort to listen to the experience of those in the minority. We cannot understand their experience if we don't.

    I nearly missed this wonderful post. It has the same picture as another post and I nearly scrolled on. What stood out the most to me is that we spend too much time on issues that do not really matter.

    I should probably also take away that mature negotiations of compromises are the way to go. But that's when my learning resistance kicked in.

    One of my favorite quotes from a trainer that had tried to get through this learning resistance, Lester Karrass: "In business and in life you don't get what you deserve, you get what you negotiate".

    I see where this has annoyed you @Paul "Pablo" Croubalian ! Is this similar to the rule in a lunchroom at work: No cooking fish in the microwave (lol)

    I find that I sometimes have little tolerance for stupid things that honestly I wonder why it even has been acknowledge by entities such as CBC or any "real" News delivery feed, that should have better things to report on..this event I would expect to see in a Rag-Mag at the store along with "I Married The Terminator from Plant X". :)

    I think common courtesy and consideration of someone else that you share a small space (this world IS becoming much smaller isnt it?) is the bottom line for both dorm roomies and apparently were not taught that at home. I am worried for when they both have to go out into the real world after mommy and daddy pay for college and have to deal with real world issues that are undoubtedly more important...this squabble is just what it is: two babies that need a time out and a lesson in common respect for another. I have a feeling we may be seeing more of these gals on a reality show called: Who the Bleep Did I Room WIth or Killer Roomies (to compliment the weekend series: Snapped and Killer Women) #MissedTheLessonAtHome

    @Paul "Pablo" Croubalian I read all 3 posts: yours, the one from @Nicole Chardenet which started this conversation, and the one by @Ben Pinto. Until I got to yours, I knew I disagreed with many of the arguments, but It was your post which helped me to see why that was. Thank you for that clarity.
    I am not saying that I agree any more with your arguments about this than I do with the other two writers, but I think there is hope for mutual understanding.
    The three of you, not unlike the two roommates, have staked out positions, then argued out lines in the sand. As in the pre-eminent negotiation and conflict resolution manual "Getting to Yes" by Fisher and Ury...to prevent and resolve potential conflicts, it is important to look first for interests and values which we, the interacting parties, have in common. Positions almost always inform us of the potential differences between us, after which we argue or fight over the values and interests that were the separate BASIS for each party's choices about positions or territorial claims. That, of course, gets us precisely nowhere. The 60-year conflict between Israel and Palestine is a perfect example of this.
    In short, if what you are looking for is disagreements and the attendant social problems, stake positions. If what you want is to build on agreements and form alliances among diverse individuals or groups, be interested in what the others value.

    No question, we had to get rid of Harper, but if we're comparing Justin to his father, Pierre never would have made that comment. As he would have put it, "We have no business in the bedrooms of feminists." There is nothing Justin will do—or can do—that will advance the feminist cause. He'll learn that feminists are divided, those who want equality, and those who want preferential treatment. Pierre would have recognized this division and essentially told feminists—like he would have told Black Lives Matter—reaching equality and tolerance is an incredible achievement. But "special status" in any matter reduces the equality of everyone else. I've been passed over many times because a company wanted (and expected) a woman. I've worked hard my whole life establishing what I hope is a reputation for doing good work. To be passed over because I'm not the right gender repeats a bias favouring one group over another (regardless of credentials). To say, "Well, it's about time, you had your chance, now move over," sounds heartless (as it should). I've lived as an equalitarian my whole life, believing we should all be judged on what we can do.
