- Producer13/10/2016With a Little Help for My Friends...WHEREIN AN OUTSPOKEN ADVOCATE FOR beBee PRESENTS SOME SUGGESTIONS FOR CONSIDERATION... I found out early on that the toughest comments came from those who cared most. Michelle Williams in a comment to How Do You Really Build Engagement? ...
Comments15/10/2016 #189 Phil Friedman#187 thank you, Praveen, for the kind words. I understand what your saying, but have to point out that it is not quite what I am saying. For me, it is not a matter of caring for a few vs caring for many. For me it is a matter of love and caring being manifested IN THE WORLD vs love and caring applied only as an ethereal concept pertaining to an abstract "humanity." It is a difference that drives the Jesuits of the Catholic Church, for example. Cheers!15/10/2016 #187 Praveen Raj Gullepalli#185 Dear Phil...I understand and that is why I mentioned "Christ-like" and also added the other kinds in the same breath. It was more about the nature of the personality than about religion. Love of a few tends to breed Intolerance towards many. And this has negatives too. That said, I deeply respect your wisdom, candour and keen observation and expression. From my experience, very rare indeed. Great interchange of thoughts and povs on this buzz too!15/10/2016 #185 Phil Friedman#179 Praveen, I am very reluctant personally to enter upon territory that has a religious flavor to it. Mostly because I have never taken Kierkegaard's leap of faith --- although I have to say that many people have suggested to me, at one time or another, to take a flying leap at the moon, and other things. I do have to say, however, with all due respect to your beliefs, that I think that looking "at all with the same eyes" might be a source of much of the evil that is present in the world. For to do so is to overlook or conflate vast variances in behavior. Thank you, as always, for reading and commenting with such care and sincerity. My best to you.15/10/2016 #184 Phil Friedman#173 Personally, this seems to me of concern ONLY if you take the number of comments to be some sort of metric for the quality or popularity of the post. Simple quantitative tabulations on social media never provide an accurate picture for judgment of anything, at least not to my mind.15/10/2016 #182 Phil Friedman#174 Aurorasa, there is also no problem sharing either way, if one is logged in. I have noticed that occasionally a share to LinkedIn from beBee gets mangled and the resulting link on LI does not work. But I am not sure on whose end, LI or beBee the problem lies. I would say that, in general, I see no eidence of action on LinkedIn's part to prevent LI members from shring posts from, or links to beBee on LinkedIn.15/10/2016 #181 Phil Friedman#180 That could be true in a case where the mask is not itself a clear and open spoof. I am moved also to point out that "affront" is in the eye of the beholder. I am sure that Donald Trump takes affront at many of the satirical characterizations of him, but I say, if the show fits....15/10/2016 #180 Praveen Raj Gullepalli#178 Agreed Phil, no issue where the intent was to differentiate a Journalistic perspective from a Political one. But when things get very personal or are perceived as personal affronts, an alias/pseudonym kinda becomes a mask under which hideth a coward ;)15/10/2016 #179 Praveen Raj Gullepalli#167 Formidable thought! My take: The selfish, haplessly devoted and bound mindset or love of the one who loves just one or a few, (as in within a family) is in marked contrast to the love of a Christ-like figure who looks at all with the same eyes, with the same feeling and is loving to all. Leaders, rulers, mentors and intellectuals are supposed to have more of the latter perspective and less of the former, as it allows the blossoming of each individual talent under their care - according to the respective levels of age, education, awareness, learning and wisdom.15/10/2016 #178 Phil Friedman#171 Sometimes, Praveen, the literary use of a pseudonym is used for reasons other than deception or to hide. For example, Samuel T. Clemens did not want his work as a newspaper reporter confused with his literary work as Mark Twain. Since Clemens appeared in public lecturing as Mark Twain, there could be no deception. In the case of my favorite satirist the use of a pseudonym is to avoid having satirical and political posts mixed up and confused with the author's professional industry-related publications. This has been all laid out in public. Cheers!15/10/2016 #173 Praveen Raj GullepalliShould twenty odd comments from a single responder be considered as twenty or one? ;) Or is it better to limit responses per buzz to a few, say 3 or 4, so that it doesn't look like one is reading a chat transcript at times? :) May not be a great idea, but just thinking out loud...looking at the loooooong engagement thread below! took me a while to digest all of the comments!15/10/2016 #172 Phil Friedman#113 Arorasa, I agree about the remark seen recently on LI that "... you can share from beBee but not from LI ...". It is not helpful. More importantly, it is false. I regularly post links on each platform to articles on the other platform, and so took the time to test those links (after having signed out of both platforms). And the links work in both directions. I think, however, that without being a member of the hosting platform, or without signing in, you cannot post a comment on the article in question. Cheers!15/10/2016 #171 Praveen Raj GullepalliAwesome points of view dear Phil! If there is ever gonna be a social media platform where folks are gonna just forget their egos and talk...discuss...point and counterpoint...and enlighten others and themselves, it is most likely going to be this one. beBee. To quote cliche - the journey has already begun. Being respectful is the key, even in dissent. Flattery and praise and excessive sweetness will obviously be self-defeating and silencing too. It is important to show the real self to the others here. No hiding behind masks or alter egos or aliases. That is both deceptive and under-handed. Especially if one is being sarcastic. One doesn't need a mask for being satirical, if the whole point is to educate. If we can, in our own way, continue to make some honey and keep this place free of hero-worship and hypocrisy (all else is bearable I feel...even the stuff that looks suspiciously stolen from a thesaurus or dictionary at times...and even narcissism!) we would have gone a long way in creating a treasure-house of genuine individual talent and resources for the world to look to for knowledge, insights, talent and careers.15/10/2016 #170 Phil Friedman#165 Gerald, you are correct that it is insane (although exceedingly crafty in its manipulative deception). However, the watchword of many internet-based moguls is that, when the reality does not conform to quantification and automation, create a new reality that does. Then sell that reality to users as the only one. Hmmm.... sounds like the mantra of political candidates, as well. Cheers!

Comments13/09/2016 #37 Henri Galvão#36 haha you're welcome!
you're right about many musicians being great storytellers. Bob Dylan, for one, always had the journalists wondering from the very beginning of his career.
I don't know much about these computer games, but I'm sure it's really serious work :-D13/09/2016 #36 Aurorasa Sima#35 Two great comments on one day? I feel blessed @Henri Galvão (:
That is an awesome point. I never thought about musicians. You got me thinking and now I think there are many that are gifted storytellers. I don´t know much about the White Stripes (just the song they played in Clubs forever). Some make their album a story, some their life show or a single song.
I´m "analyzing" computer games at the moment. Telltale and The Talos Principle (hey, that´s serious work!)13/09/2016 #35 Henri GalvãoPretty cool text, and very enriching comments as well! This is something whose relevance has been more and more evident for musicians.
In fact, a band that is often cited as an example of great storytellers were the Stripes Whites. Not only because they had their whole thing about only using three colors (black, white and red), but also because the relationship between Jack and Meg White was always ambiguous (were they siblings, lovers, or ex-lovers?), and it just captured everyone's attention even more.
But, of course, their music was also great!03/09/2016 #32 Anonymous#28 You have shown a perfect example, @Aurorasa Sima with this video.
It leads me to another thought.
Successful storytelling has always a base of basic and positive human values.
All humans have the need of catharsis, according to wikipedia, "the purification and purgation of emotions—especially pity and fear—through art or any extreme change in emotion that results in renewal and restoration"
This is what the video you shared is transmitting and its main message.
Product is just an add-on to the story.03/09/2016 #30 Ali AnaniI just want to share a little of "our story" you dear @David Navarro López and I. We have created our own story. Over the last three years we had enormous exchange of thoughts, of life experiences, of our love life and of our philosophy in life. We often agreed, but sometimes differed in style and due respect. There is a story to tell because it shows what started as small comments led to a formidable friendship. I am confident that readers of this comment if they would read any buzz by David, if they haven't done till now, will share my admiration of his mind and heart.03/09/2016 #28 Aurorasa Sima#22 I love your comment, @David Navarro López. It´s so thoughtful and knowledgeable. The car industry is great at corporate storytelling. Apple too. Many corporations. Our focus is to help salespeople develop social competence. Raise their EQ. We use story as a medium for sales people to connect with buyers and invite them to open up and share what´s on their minds. As important is story tending, the ability of the salesperson to fully understand the client´s story.03/09/2016 #27 Anonymous#26 Dear @Ali Anani this will be very useful to bees that did not know you before of your Bebee era. When I told you that I treasure your wisdom and friendship, I really meant it, so this was not necessary for me, as I know all of them by heart. And you have proven with your enormous amount of posts and presentations that metaphors and visual story telling are the most powerful way to transmit things. As example of your very smashing way to expose complex things on storytelling, which would be impossible to transmit so perfectly other ways, our bees community should not miss these ones, among others
http://www.slideshare.net/hudali15/phenomena-race-strategy-model03/09/2016 #22 Anonymous@Aurorasa Sima you have exposed very accurately a matter on which @Ali Anani and myself digged sometime ago, and that is visual storytelling. I completely agree that "Stories inspire our fantasy and enable us to create visions. We see pictures. We become part of the story. We abstract, we learn, we create." "Cavemen scratched and painted their life stories into the walls so that others could learn from them."
The oldest painting found is dated 50.000 years ago, while the oldest writing found is dated just 5.000 years ago, so that means that our brain developement, our culture, our knowledge, our communication skills have been growing by means of visual story telling.
Customers nowadays, as you mention, are not concerned about features, but about how they feel if purchasing the product involved.
In order to produce this feeling, the storyteller needs to engage his audience, involving them into the story, not boring about features they can find for themselves, and planting the seed of "What if I would have this product?"
The automotive industry, which traditionally are the bigger investors in marketing, know that, and tell us stories on how beatifully would we feel driving their cars.
Concernig to all this, I am allowing myself to suggest you having a look at

I have no concrete answers for you. However, after finding myself seeking a return to the marketplace after nearly a two year absence -- at the age of 56 -- I learned that you have a much better chance of finding employment if you haven't burned any bridges. It's still very much a matter of who you know. But, it's also what you know. Nobody knows you better than former contacts and employers. Certainly not the electronic-based black holes that resumes fall into these days.29/08/2016 #2 Phillip Hubbell@John Vaughan...I have written things about age and ageism, but have feared posting them, Mainly because, I don't think there really are solutions. I think that there is an underlying age bias in all of us...even as we encounter it personally, as we all eventually will. I worry that if I publish my age post, it will harm my personal brand... Thinking that age is just a number is great internally to how we view ourselves, but it has little effect on how others view us.

Thank you for this Buzz!30/08/2016 #18 Chas Wyatt@Flávio Rodrigues Vieira, this is definitely relevant and well written. "Music washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life." ~Berthold Auerbach. "I have my own particular sorrows, loves, delights; and you have yours. But sorrow, gladness, yearning, hope, love, belong to all of us, in all times and in all places. Music is the only means whereby we feel these emotions in their universality." ~H.A.

We have recently been exploring how music can help with movement disorders and find that it can override neurological signals of pain and rigidity. But it does matter that the music 'means' something to the person. When I pick the music that I like, it does nothing for my partner. When he selects it, his entire physiological state can change. I really enjoyed this post!29/08/2016 #4 Flávio Rodrigues Vieira#3 would never take such an attack, on the contrary, take it as learning , could pass me your email , I would be extremely grateful to receive help , I'm always trying to seek to bring something that makes people to question and think it is the right way to act in a world of constant change.29/08/2016 #3 David Disney#2 Good for you!!

I can only say that I found out that finding a balance between opposites makes me happy and whole.
Maybe that is what our universe is all about? The sum of all negative and positive is the integer zero?

There is one nation that does not traditionally use coconut at all, and that is Japan, which happens to have the highest life expectancy in the world. The Japanese do not use much oil of any sorts in their cooking (aside from dishes imported from Portugal that have become homogenised). As you'd expect, being half Japanese, 50% of my diet is Japanese cuisine. I'd recommend Japanese food to anyone concerned about health. I read your article and have no doubt coconut oil does have it's merits, but I get that from green tea and grilled fish (especially the cheeks!), and I'm proud to say I still have a full head of hair which I suspect is due to heavy consumption of seaweed (kombu, not nori).22/08/2016 #9 Aurorasa Sima#8 OMG Dean, you are so missing out. Does your wife use it? I use it as my only cream. It works wonders for nails, lips, HAIR .. even minor wounds ... no need to look at the article unless you want to. http://blog.aurorasa-coaching.com/2015/05/why-coconut-oil-is-your-go-to-beauty.html22/08/2016 #8 Dean OwenSounds way too healthy for me. I have a large container of coconut oil which I often use instead of olive oil to make pasta. Never once have I thought of putting a spoon of it in my mouth, but I'll try it out! I am pretty sure a routine will help with our insomnia but I fear Groundhog Day more than anything else. Great buzz as usual!21/08/2016 #6 Darryl John#4 I am also a big advocate of routine and yes I am at the gym 4,× a week. I find life is much easier if I remove the choices and know exactly what, where and how I will be using each day. Also as someone with certain mental health issues it keeps me from stress and anxiety and focussed on what I am to do. It also helps my writing.21/08/2016 #4 Amour Setter#3 Aurorasa I have been following this routine for most of my adult life. Before I began traveling I used to go to gym each morning, but for the past 5 years I'm now doing a daily Pilates routine instead. I have the daily routine no matter where in the world I find myself.

Comments01/09/2016 #44 William VanDorinI insist I am completely full of shit, but a majority has over ruled me on the matter and seem to take me quite seriously. This should have been a predictable circumstance. I am, after all wildly talented, alarmingly intelligent, strikingly attractive and ever so humble! I know this to be fact... They took a poll. LOL!19/08/2016 #38 Mohammed A. JawadUgh...how sometimes we dearly nickname the many elements of life, and give birth to differing ideas and notions. Perception matters. ..and you become the way you think. Either we are full of shimmering light or lost in the blurring darkness. Or say: by little this and by little that we are partially sensible.19/08/2016 #34 Kevin Pashuk#33 You have scored 8 on the shit-o-meter @Renée Cormier... I tend to agree with you. I've known people who have taken profanity and made it an art form (for some reason most of them are Irish, but I digress)... others overuse it like the adolescent who got their first bottle of cologne for Christmas... They don't know that a little can go a long way.19/08/2016 #33 Renée CormierJim, I think that people who are offended by people who swear are full of shit. Personally, I believe that people who swear are more authentic than those who don't. Religious people are full of shit, politicians are full of shit, most sales people are full of shit, job seekers are full of shit when they are being interviewed, employers are full of shit when they are interviewing... You are right, @Jim Murray. The world is full of shit. Oh shit!18/08/2016 #27 John VaughanIn a somewhat related vein, @Jim Murray: https://www.bebee.com/producer/@john-vaughan/no-problem

Comments02/08/2016 #1 Donald GrandyThanks you for this great post. I have needed the courage to "Stand up and Press Forward" many times in my working career which now spans 40+ years. When it became too much, I gave it up to God to find a solution. 1 John 5:14 (GNTD)
We have courage in God's presence, because we are sure that he hears us if we ask him for anything that is according to his will.

It is the current model of hunkering down in their own hives that is killing people with the best of intentions. The body is a holistic, anti-fragile system that gains from disorder. We know from quantum physics that the smaller one looks for science the less likely it is to function that way when one comes back up to the human level. There are emergent phenomena when enough closed smaller parts and systems align for evolution.31/07/2016 #27 CityVP Manjit#26 "etiology" is a great new word that is a great addition to my own vocabulary. http://www.etymonline.com/index.php?term=etiology View more#26 "etiology" is a great new word that is a great addition to my own vocabulary. http://www.etymonline.com/index.php?term=etiology.
