Thanks for kick starting the thinking process. Hope you had a great trip!28/05/2017 #19 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBeeI have just arrived from Turkey and the first thing I did is read this super buzz by dear @Sara Jacobovici. This is an extremely worthy buzz and is full of great definitions and examples of spontaneity. I have paused on this part "The “who” I am engages with others and the world around me in the same way; it is the situation that changes, not me". This is a challenging situation for me. Do I change with changes around me? Can I be "fixed" person with all the changes surrounding me? This is a matter for serious thinking. I hope that readers would reflect on it.20/05/2017 #18 Sara Jacobovici#15 I appreciate and "get" your comment and the expanded perspective @Harvey Lloyd. Great "call to action": "Please disagree, i enjoy the discussion as we either merge our perspectives or merely share a different one. Exploration of perspectives is the true border of discovery." Agreed! (pun intended)20/05/2017 #15 Harvey Lloyd#8 I agree with your disagreement. When we look at spontaneity from the perspective and definition you prescribed. I am quite the visual person. Maybe acutely. I don't see one playground but many. You aptly described the various playgrounds we can find ourselves and others engaged. Judgement, apathetic criticism and the others. For me i cant be on one playground and act as i am on another. The judgement playground keeps me from the playground where spontaneity can happen.
If i say yes to something, what am i saying no too? Was a profound question put to me by a mentor who wanted me to understand that in the presence of yes/no, judgement or the other features you pointed out what is being obscured or being said no too?
It is from this perspective that i look at the critical features that zap spontaneity and say that if judgement exists then spontaneity will be difficult to achieve. Everything that is seen or discussed will have to satisfy the judgment criteria first.
I also want to say that i am defining spontaneity with a very fine scope of seeking wisdom or answers to current questions. Not frolicking and being spontaneous for detachment purposes. So again i take great liberties with definitions, and often assume everyone got a copy of my dictionary.
Please disagree, i enjoy the discussion as we either merge our perspectives or merely share a different one. Exploration of perspectives is the true border of discovery.20/05/2017 #13 namita sinha@Sara Jacobovici ..I find this post , a rare amalgamation of aspects of physics, psychology and creativity , all interwoven with your efforts and clarity of thinking , to make a free flowing article - easily to understand and assimilate ..

Valuable insights and a writing for keeps to be referred to even in future ! Thanks !19/05/2017 #12 Franci🐝Eugenia Hoffman, beBee Brand Ambassador@Sara Jacobovici, I am delighted that you took the time and effort to expand on spontaneity. It's posts like this that bring even a broader understanding of a thought-provoking subject, while it is fresh in our minds.
I agree the definition of spontaneity is open-ended, presenting food-for-thought thus the reason for a most interesting chain of comments.
Thank you for bringing this post to my attention and I am on my way to Part Two.19/05/2017 #8 Sara Jacobovici#6 I always look forward to a @Harvey Lloyd comment. I find your comments unique and thought provoking Let me just say, I am not into the compartmentalization of learning and definitions of words. Learning is a lifetime process and we learn as long as we have an open mind and a passion to learn. The rules of grammar, so to speak, can be helpful at times, as tools, not as a substitute for thinking. I love how you move nouns into verbs. This inspires me to look at words through movement. I once wrote about how the verb "to allow", in fact means not doing anything. So here is a verb that moves towards stillness. Now, to the topic at hand, as @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee reminds me, disagreement is natural and adds to the discussion. So Harvey, I have to respectfully disagree with your description of spontaneity as providing us a "playground of otherwise off limit areas of our brain when the rules are in play." I think the cessation of destructive criticism, suspension of judgment, censorship, and even fear, are some factors that contribute to our having the "freedom" to be in the space of that playground, but that playground does not exist because of spontaneity. That playground comes from our innate ability to explore and be curious, and our sense of safety that we developed over time and with experience, to identify the boundaries in which that exploration can take place. Thank you for contributing to "extending and growing" my thinking.19/05/2017 #6 Harvey LloydVery interesting points concerning how we take liberties in expressing and expanding a definition into a concept. I would ask for forgiveness as i did not attend any higher education so i do take great liberties in defining words.
The fractal nature of our being tends to define a ridged existence along certain paths that give us a reflection. Ergo @Chris 🐝 Guest Cert.Prof.Acc.SA question. The one of control. Spontaneity provides us a play ground of otherwise off limit areas of our brain when the rules are in play.
My definition of Spontaneity does step outside the box of Webster too describe the outcome and journey. What spontaneity can lead too, if you will. One of my faults is carrying nouns into the realm of action. I get called on it from my dictionary happy educator friends. By doing so though i am not tied to the definition myself, but can grow out from it. This is confusing when i take a noun and drive it down the road to a conclusion that presents the word as a verb.
In taking a crack at Chris's question i would submit yes that spontaneity is a state of mind, represented in action to others, and a choice. I also believe that we don't find success, success finds us because of this state of mind. A play on words? Maybe? I see many people looking, who are unprepared for success and i see many who are creating an environment where success will visit. Depending on which of these views you accept will have cause and effect on your spontaneity.
Thanks @Sara Jacobovici for extending and growing this concept of understanding our paradigm.19/05/2017 #5 Sara Jacobovici#4 If you forgive mine.#3 Your question, as always @Chris 🐝 Guest Cert.Prof.Acc.SA, is a wise one. Everything you say is right; spontaneity has a lot to do with personality and yes, there seems to be a contradiction in the concept of having "a deliberate control over spontaneous behaviour." So first, re personality. I see this as a reinforcement to spontaneity being an ability we develop as we mature. Our initial mode of operation is very impulsive. Only when we begin to develop a sense of time, to delay gratification, to understand stops and starts, and so on, do we choose, based on our personality type, to be more or less spontaneous. The contradiction is more of a paradox; spontaneity is time bound. We either make time for spontaneity or not. Because by the time we can be spontaneous, we have more control over the "when", we are then able to be "free" within the constraints of time. Thanks for your valuable contribution to this discussion Chris.19/05/2017 #3 Chris 🐝 Guest Cert.Prof.Acc.SAThanks for this very illuminating expabsipn to the duscussion @Sara Jacobovici. I found your expert articulation of the differences between impulsive and spontaneous behavior and fully resonate with your explanation. Would you then say one has deliberate control over spontaneous behaviour..."I will act spontaneously tomorrow" for example? This would appear to be a contradiction in terms but seems logical given your explanation that spontaneity lies within rational adult conciousness.I had always assumed that spontaneous qualities were a product of personality rather than of tge exercise of ones will.

Value contribution can be defined as 'making something better than it was before engaging with it'. And so we need first to contribute value to ourselves - aspiring to personal creativity and being the best that we can be. And then contributing value to those close to us or dependent upon us. Finally, contributing value to the extended environment. This incorporates 'balance' - balance of creativity versus duty.15/05/2017 #9 Liesbeth Leysen, MSc.

Of special interest to me is also the quote of Roger Cole "Being stuck means there is no movement; we have stopped making choices. They only "way" to get us moving out of the stuck place is to choose to move".
Now, you bring a new issue dear Sara and I think this is the theme of my next buzz. The issue of plants for they don't move. Do they have choices? Are there choices in stillness? Do we move if we lose our senses? If so, are plants also senseless? If not, when can we have choices in stillness?
You provoke my mind again. I see the Ideas Natural Polymeric Chain forming up.
I am honored not only to be mentioned in this great buzz; but also for the way you connected my three of my buzzes together. You make me feel that you were the author of these buzzes. Sara, you are truly amazing.11/05/2017 #1 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBeePart 1
@Sara Jacobovici- I shared this buzz on three hives and to my followers. This isn't because I am mentioned several times in this terrific buzz. This is honorable to me; more honorable is to be mentioned in such a high quality buzz.
Some people think that being in balance means death. This untrue in dynamic balances because they allow for choice and movement. The tendency is calling for going to extremes so that disruption would occur. I repeat here that we can have emerging solutions in a dynamic balance. This is more feasible and less destructive option than going to the extreme. This is what I tried to explain in my last three buzzes. Therefore, your writing "Balance, on the other hand is a process rather than a place in which we strive towards equilibrium; we are more in alignment with our responses, we have more options available to us, and our responses are less impulsive and less destructive". This is reinforced in your writing towards the end " Possibilities are created when we are in the process of balance, when we are open to seeing that we are in a place of choice".

Comments08/05/2017 #34 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#33 Thank you dear @Deb🐝 Lange, Brand Ambassador @beBee for expressing your difference with me. You raise a hugely important issue. My answer is knowledge and senses feed each other. IT think it was dear @Sara Jacobovici who wrote that knowledge is one of our senses. By feeding our knowledge we feed our senses.
I had an Arabic editor in the office who was a master in editing. One day he slipped two grammar mistakes. I talked to him and found out that he had no control of grammar except for his senses. Whenever he wrote something that it didn't make sense to him he changed it. His senses were very high, but knowledge was almost nil. Amazing yes, but sometimes we need our knowledge just to enrich our senses.
In English you say, Had before before and had after after. Sometimes my senses fail me, but going back to this rule and my knowledge of it help me.08/05/2017 #33 Deb🐝 Lange, Brand Ambassador @beBeeInteresting analysis! But dear @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee I wonder why you used the headline analyser ?

I would love to have seen more of your personal analysis of the headlines, which you did a little when you were surprised by the result in some cases. I just see an importance for us to keep developing our own sensory acuity. If we use IT programs as one source of information, but not the only source of information . I wonder whether we are giving away our power and our sense of seeing patterns ourselves the more we defer to IT programs.

Comments01/05/2017 #14 Franci🐝Eugenia Hoffman, beBee Brand AmbassadorIt seems some decision makers don't have the human race nor our beloved planet in their best interests, no matter where we live. The selfish desire for wealth and power is increasingly alarming. What is so unfortunate is we don't know about the corruption until a disaster happens.01/05/2017 #13 Liesbeth Leysen, MSc. Brand Ambassador beBee, Inc.mmmmmm, sad @debasish majumder, sad stories remind us that it is not evident when everything goes well, gratitude is the answer for that!01/05/2017 #12 Lisa 🐝 GallagherVery sad stories of the two families indeed. Making cuts to save money on behalf of human lives happens throughout the world sadly. I think of all the fracking that takes place in the US and they have proven there's been an increase in Earthquakes in the areas that do fracking yet nothing has been done. Oklahoma is one such state that was not prone to Earthquakes but that's changed since fracking began, not to mention all the poisons that spill into the soil which travel to the water that people use and consume. We need to take better care of mother earth. My heart broke when I read of that poor gal losing her father (on her birthday, no less) and even for the entire family that was killed in the accident.01/05/2017 #10 Ian WeinbergThanks for a screenshot of life in its multi dimensions. Indeed there are much more complex and timeless systems in play that influence every aspect of our existence. The question is - has mankind reached a threshold level of presence wherein the very source-files of the system may be corrupting? Thanks for this thought-provoking buzz @debasish majumder01/05/2017 #7 David B. GrinbergNice buzz, Debasish. It's very unfortunate that many politicians in the USA and elsewhere are climate change deniers despite the overwhelming evidence to the contrary. That age-old saying is really ringing true: "You can't fool Mother Nature."
To wit: decades of environmental degradation caused by greedy corporations, Big Oil, and carbon producing industries worldwide have only contributed to a host of already alarming problems, including: unclean air, polluted water, record-setting temperatures, rising sea levels, super storms, melting ice sheets and ozone layer depletion (in and over Antarctica), etc. It's a long and ugly list on the road to ruining the only planet we currently call home. A sad story indeed.

Comments26/04/2017 #47 Edward Lewellen#39 Yes, Ali, it is a lack of confidence, but the problem goes much deeper. When people don't have a clear "Core Identity", they flounder in all of the roles they play in life. They put so much emphasis on a role, or roles, they play that they lose who they really are. Then, it becomes important for them to find validation that they are playing their role(s) well, again, by verbal accolades, titles, awards, etc. People who know their Core Identity also appreciate accolades, titles, awards, etc., but, those things don't make-or-break them, as it did with the person in your post.26/04/2017 #46 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#45 I echo the advice of your senior Director @Asesh Datta. The other dayI was invited to the wedding of a man in his mid sixties (his wife passed away a year ago). The bride was in her thirties. The man died his her and had a haircut of young people. He danced like a young man. He wanted to look young. I leave it to your imagination what comments I heard.26/04/2017 #45 Asesh Datta@Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee There is popular saying, If you want to be young, look young. We color our hairs, dress with jazzy stripes, put on sun glass and put on fairness creams. Your article on 'Why I prefer to look smaller?' is also quite similar. This smallness is youth, innocence, ignorant, foolish, simple and energetic. One very senior Director advised me "Asesh, Imitate like a fool, you will be successful." I can see a lot of significance in that advice. Regards26/04/2017 #44 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#43 One think is inescapable is that that your denominator gives you a high value f self-respect @Lada 🏡 Prkic. I love your comment and the ration you give between what we w are and what we think of ourselves. Very-well said "No matter how much we want to look bigger, we can't escape of what we really are". In life unfortunately people tend to forget the obvious.26/04/2017 #43 Lada 🏡 Prkic#35 Ali, I am not surprised at all. People do many things in order to gain prestige and look bigger in other's eyes.
Furthermore, how many people we know who are doing a job they are not capable of, not in terms of academic degrees but in terms of their abilities. Many of them sit in various steering committees or, even worse, they are part of the government.
They don't understand that this is not the way to look big, it's a lack of self-respect.
“A man is like a fraction whose numerator is what he is and whose denominator is what he thinks of himself. The larger the denominator, the smaller the fraction.”
No matter how much we want to look bigger, we can't escape of what we really are.25/04/2017 #42 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#38 The beauty of your comments is that we don't need to comment much on them dear @CityVP 🐝 Manjit because they are crystal clear. You wrote a great point which merits our attention and is a worthy buzz on its own. I mean " When thoughts about humility become a groupthink, it is not humility but a categorization to good and bad". Great thinking here25/04/2017 #40 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#33 Dear friend @Aaron 🐝 Skogen- you have the right mentality and that is why you learn. Yes, we should seek self-respect and with it comes good work. If I have self-respect I don't behave badly. What a self-respect does a person have with a faked PhD have? This person will spend his life doubting himself and others for fear of being found out. If he had self-respect and a PhD degree is his ambition he should work hard to achieve his goal. Living a life based on lies shall only make things worse.25/04/2017 #39 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#32 Dear friend @Edward Lewellen- you are a wise man. "Because many don't give value to their worth, they find their importance in titles and degrees". Yes, you are correct and these are the people like your singer example get their worth from people. Is it because of self-doubt? Why a good singer would think he isn't if some people told him so? Is it lack of self-confidence? You raise an important issue- what are the root causes of such behaviors? This would be interesting to explore. What do you think?25/04/2017 #38 CityVP 🐝 ManjitSometimes life becomes like Donald Trump talking about his hands, and at that point if we are devoid of reality big and small become mere illusion. When thoughts about humility become a groupthink, it is not humility but a categorization to good and bad. Possessing humility is more good or bad than possessing ego. When Marianne Williamson says "Your playing small does not serve the world." http://www.goodreads.com/quotes/928-our-deepest-fear-is-not-that-we-are-inadequate-our it brings balance to the frame we may have set about identifying with small vs. big. Context then becomes relevant for the healthy of big is a different context to the unhealthy of small. If the context is health then the sizing is healthy and sizing of humility becomes a contextual intelligence.25/04/2017 #36 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee#30 I feel bigger and truly bigger not because I stretch my arms dear @Alan Culler, but because I am connected with people with your caliber. My understanding in life is that we grow in value and not in cosmetics and appearances. A person with a fake degree lacks self-respect and spends life in doing the wrong things. If I put a doctorate degree on a donkey it shall remain a donkey. I wish those people would learn your wisdom.25/04/2017 #33 Aaron 🐝 SkogenIT sounds to me like the man in your story had a very low opinion of himself, did not see his own value and felt the need to "cheat" the system for outside validation. How unfortunate!
I have said it before and I'll say it again. I WANT to be the dumbest guy in the room! I say that because that is where my opportunity for growth lies, in learning from others. I'd say you are saying the same dear @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee. I'm not sure that makes us large or small, but I know it makes us eager to learn, collaborate and share, and that my friend can only benefit everyone in the room. I enjoy spending time in your room Ali.25/04/2017 #32 Edward LewellenDear friend, my experience working with people who have low self-esteem relates to your post. Because many don't give value to their worth, they find their importance in titles and degrees. When working with people, including corporate executives, I often find that they have a high self-ego, but low self-worth. They have accomplished much and they are proud of those accomplishments, however, they feel no value in them unless the value comes from others. I recently saw a contestant in a singing competition being interviewed. The person made the statement, 'I'm so glad people are voting for me. It let's me know that I'm a good singer.' I instantly wondered, "So, if those people don't think you are, does that mean you're not a good singer?" I'm sure there are people who don't think that person is a good singer, but, does that mean he's not? To me, it was if he couldn't be a good singer unless someone else told him he was. And, this is how many people live, needing and wanting endorsements and approval from outside of themselves. I believe this is why so many people want the title of Assistant Manager, Manager, VP, President, CEO, PhD, etc. Those are external sources which give people validation of their internal worth. How sad. My guess is that was the case with the person in your post.25/04/2017 #30 Alan Culler@Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee
Very engaging insights, Ali, as always. I do so look forward to your posts.
When faced with a grizzly bear on a hiking trail -the usual park ranger advice is to spread your arms wide to appear bigger and shake your body so all the hanging paraphernalia on your pack makes noise to make you sound bigger. I've not met a grizzly yet -but it seems a good strategy is such circumstances.
However, most of life is unlike meeting a grizzly bear on a hiking trail. I find that I am attracted more to those who are humble, i.e. not so blinded by their puffed up size that they will not be able to empathize with "'l'il' ol' me" :-)
I experience you through your writing as a humble man -but certainly not small in any sense -big ideas -highly visible on social media -a giant, but. . .
open - -receptive -definitely NOT a puffer fish.
Please keep sharing your insights - they make me think BIGGER.25/04/2017 #29 Lada 🏡 PrkicWhether we admit it or not, we all tend to look bigger because we live in a competitive world. This is particularly evident in the world of science.
For some people getting a doctoral degree is a means of elevating themselves over others. The rich man you mentioned in the buzz is not the only example.
Indeed, a very relevant topic to discuss, @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee.

There are less jobs and resources available for increasing numbers of youth. They are easy prey for organizations with evil agenda's since they offer some 'purpose' .
