    #24 I agree and I see your point @John Rylance. hence, in my comment I introduces the time factor. What happens if the fox stays for a long time> The hedgehog shall be stressed. Can way sustain being in a shell for long times?

    19/11/2017 #24 John Rylance
    Ali I think the hedgehog also curls up when sleeping. This being so then we he curls up to escape the fox or other predators rather than being stressed maybe he feels safe and secure. #8
    Either way it shows we have our safe havens, which will in most cases outlive the threats.

    #13 Why, thank you dear @Harvey Lloyd - I am touched!! I would have so loved to have included all of Paul's Romans 7:14-25, as it's a poignant reflection of purpose, conflict and tension from a man who stuck through such brutal diversity 'til the end. Without his contextual history it's hard to understand the true value of this passage; I'm grateful you know it....may take me 2000 years to comprehend you fine thinkers though :)

    #12 We try to live in the now dear @Lisa Vanderburg. Reading the future is like predicting accurately the weather.
    I refer to this as The Weather Paradox. For, the more we know about weather, the more realization we have that predicting it is next to impossible. We shall never have the accuracy to predict it. Why then follow an impossible dream?

    #11 I like the way you applied The Golden Circle in addressing the issue of purpose @Harvey Lloyd. The why, what and how questions. As @Sara Jacobovici wrote on my previous buzz that asking the whys keep us in the "state" or process of discovering our purpose.
    In the buzz I refer to Dove and the article on LI. The same article says and I quote:
    Unilever has allowed this purpose to reveal competing tensions, provoke innovation, grow revenues, inspire employees, and build trust in their brands around the world.
    There are some questions that must be asked in determining this guiding purpose. Standing in the fruits of the research, ask and answer:
    โ€ข What is important to the people we serve?
    โ€ข What do we have to give?
    โ€ข What would we love to give?
    โ€ข What competing tensions do we face?
    โ€ข What purpose includes and respects all of that?
    Amazing, the emphasis here is on the what. No mention of the why and how. But I belong to your approach.

    #10 What an awesome comment. The eriness of the scripture is that this is nearly 2000 years old. The paradox was known even then. Secularly it traces back to the beginning of known writings.

    Paul was a man that new this conflict well. I dont believe that their ever was a more paradoxical man to live.

    Thank you for your comment as it was enlightening as much humbling.

    #5 The purpose paradox is really discussing the chaos therory from a single individuals perspective. Giving way to the concrete existance of the theory. With this in mind we should understand that its not โ€œifโ€ we will engage in chaos but rather โ€œwhenโ€.

    When we move from bliss to engage within the paradox then we should be consistent.

    What three questions would attempt to answer within the paradox that are purpose driven?

    Not questions of right and wrong nor questions of proffesion or skill, but questions of humanity.

    The three questions would focus on navigateing the humanity of the paradox. Each person applying their skill and wisdom within the answered questions.

    Some possible questions:
    1. Who needs support?
    2. What are the needs of each party involved on the other side of the solution?
    3. How are we turning this into an empowering solution?

    I must re-read this many times @Ali ๐Ÿ Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee; this is over my evolutionary pay-scale :)
    That said, it is superb and 'The Purpose Paradox' is sublime! What I know is the paradox, for I have seen it in spiritual faith: the Apostle Paul says in Romans 7, '15; I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do......21; So I find this law at work: Although I want to do good, evil is right there with me. 22; For in my inner being I delight in Godโ€™s law; 23; but I see another law at work in me, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within me.' This is the internal warfare that paradox brings and it is as old as human life itself. I am deliberately using faith here, not to preach :) ,but as an example; you can't unlearn what you know or forget what your eyes have witnessed etc. There's warnings to 'unbelief' in the bible....so in that world, delving deeper means more responsibility to take on that learning.

    #7 I am a strong believer that when we help others we help ourselves too. Egoism is not going to help others and is of a limited scope. Actually, it could fire back on the egoist.
    Purposes that have the value of helping others prosper. When we increase the capacity of others we increase ours as well. Emotional fear reminds me of the hedgehog which curls into a ball when a fox approaches it. If the fox stays for long times for how long the hedgehog can keep in its stressed form?

    19/11/2017 #7 Harvey Lloyd
    Purpose really transcends to values. Regardless of circumstance i will seek to apply this value.

    Society has decided that we must take care of self first. Then and only then can we seek the welfare of others. This sounds reasonable at a glance. But what happens when two powerful people who share the same value of me first meet within a company?

    What would happen if we altered the purpose/value to include, me first while serving others. This simple statement changes our approach and turns on our creativity in reaching two me first goals within the question above.

    Somewhere along the way of societal growth we have added a feature. Emotional fear is now reality. Can i be first within someone elseโ€™s paradigm? Most often emotional fear keeps us from seeing our own success within someone elseโ€™s paradigm.

    I can always fight within any paradigm for what i want as long as i am also helping the others get what they want. Or its no deal.

    Within a social/proffesional paradigm everyone needs to win. Unmet emotional needs will always come back in later forms.

    Purpose/values at this level help us navigate through win-win and make the tough call of no deal, if we cant get past the paradox.

    I agree @Ali ๐Ÿ Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee =- in the tension is an opening - "Creative tensions provide us with great opportunities to come up with noble solutions" - rather than avoiding the tension, being with it and allowing it to flow through, change shape, connect, open up some how enables the tension to disperse and the new to be birthed. Look at how we birth babies. A truly creative act.

    #12 @Jerry Fletcher Always great to hear from you and your comments are thought provoking, Mother Earth is one tough Mother, there is no question about this fact! Interesting enough Hurricane Irma, like Hurricane Harvey, was not caused by climate change. But scientists say the horrifying destruction it has sent across the Atlantic might have been. Apparently global warming was the reason for the extreme weather is the wrong question. Instead, we should be focusing on how global warming has helped turn the hurricanes into even more destructive forces than they ever would have been before......

I found that research study that was produced on 27th September 2017, I would be interested to seek global research on the world in 'hell in a hand basket' but I feel I already know the answer......I feel @Harvey Lloyd has made some great comments and this is totally plausible, I am not sure there is a quick fix to the problems, the problem starts with government, business, communities and ultimately us as creators of the current unhappiness in this chaotic world, and we are responsible for this debacle, a small majority or even large majority can live with a better belief and and a better tomorrow, the question is always how much people really want to change for a better future, I guess we are back to 'be careful what you wish for' .

    @Lisa Vanderburg Democrats also feel that way, but by a much slimmer 16-point margin (51-35 percent). Thereโ€™s no gender or age gap: two-thirds of men (67 percent), women (66 percent), voters under 45 (68 percent), and those ages 45+ (66 percent) think political correctness has gone too far. The Fox News poll was conducted under the joint direction of Anderson Robbins Research (D) and Shaw & Company Research (R) among 1,017 randomly chosen registered voters nationwide reached on landline and cellphones from Sept. 24-26, 2017. The margin of sampling error is plus or minus three percentage points for results among all registered voters.

    @Lisa Vanderburg Thereโ€™s lots of cross-partisan agreement on the decline of our social glue. For example, 81 percent of Republicans say people are less courteous, as do 77 percent of Democrats, and 76 percent of independents. Itโ€™s mostly the same on people behaving worse and our bonds weakening. "We often focus on the divisiveness of specific political leaders," says Democratic pollster Chris Anderson, who conducts the Fox News poll with Republican Daron Shaw. "But these results are a reminder that those elected leaders are a reflection of the voters who elect them, and a society that sees people as increasingly rude and lacking common bonds." The nation is more divided over kneeling protests this year: 55 percent of voters see kneeling during the national anthem as inappropriate. Thatโ€™s down six percentage points from 61 percent in 2016. And 41 percent consider kneeling an appropriate way to protest, up from 32 percent last year. The increase comes largely from a jump of 21 points among blacks and 16 among women. Those most likely to disapprove of the kneeling include men (60 percent), independents (62 percent), whites (63 percent), veterans (65 percent), Republicans (86 percent), and Trump voters (90 percent). In addition, 66 percent of voters feel political correctness has "gone too far" in this country. Twenty-three percent disagree. Republicans think things are too PC by a 72-point margin (83-11 percent).

    #9 Thank you @Lisa Vanderburg for your words, the world is going to hell in a hand basket, is true and there is no denying the facts, it really is time to wake up. A large majority of American voters feels the bonds that hold the country together are weakening, while over half think the world is going to hell in a handbasket.
    A Fox News poll released Thursday also finds that large numbers feel more people are rude and behave badly in public in the United States today compared to the past. Some 56 percent of voters say things are "going to hell in a handbasket." It was 57 percent a year ago and 58 percent in 2014. That consistency masks some big movement among who thinks the world is going to hell -- and the party that controls the White House has a lot of sway in this. In 2014, only 48 percent of Democrats said things were going to hell compared to 70 percent who feel that way today. The reverse is true among Republicans: 71 percent said hell in a handbasket in 2014 vs. 42 percent now. Meanwhile, most voters believe compared to 10 years ago, people in the U.S. behave worse in public (83 percent), are less courteous (78 percent), and the bonds that hold our nation together are weakening (81 percent).

    #3 Thank you @Harley King that's a great reminiscing story about the 60's with @Harvey Lloyd talking about the 60's too, it makes me think of the amazing Beatles with A day in the life' and Hey Jude. We have had many people, philosophers, and even I was in Sedona on 23rd December 2012 when everyone believed this was the end of the world, The Mayans end of the I-Ching calendar, if was fascinating when you listen to the wisdom behind some of these people and their conviction. Your quote from Socrates is exemplary, I remember working with Polaroid and Edwin H Land was remembered for saying ' The world is a scene changing so rapidly that it takes every bit of intuitive ability you have, every brain cell each one of you has, to make the sensible decision about what to do next. You cannot rely upon what you have been taught. All you have learned from history is old ways of making mistakes. There is nothing that history can tell you about what we must do tomorrow. Only what we must not do. My view on life is very simple these days, we constantly evolve, transform and think of the future, when really we should be capturing the special moment of now with our loved ones, family and friends. Life is precious, we need to share and enjoy these times with our special people in our lives, life is also terribly short.

    #1 @Harvey Lloyd So the question is do we call this a human choice? One of the oldest questions in life is whether humans have choice and the freedom to do so. That is, are we able to choose what we will do with our lives? There are studies that show a belief in its existence might work, but beyond that, we cannot verify or invalidate its existence. What is important, however, is that we treat ourselves and each other as self-determined beings whose thoughts and feelings are important. In that regard, Baumeisterโ€™s research has much to teach us. Maybe we should just follow the Golden Rule of 'be careful what you wish for' after all......?

    #1 So sorry for my tardy response @Harvey Lloyd, this week has been a little crazy, but no different to the 60's lol Thank you for your great contribution, you really struck a nerve with me across some of my favorite subjects. Ah....be careful what you wish for, you may just get it, was this an English saying from โ€œThe Monkeyโ€™s Pawโ€ by W.W. Jacobs? This wonderful saying seems to appear everywhere in life and different eras too; ็‚น็Ÿณๆˆ้‡‘ (Dian Shi Cheng Jin) DiวŽn shรญ chรฉng jฤซn [dian shi cheng jin] touch stone accomplish gold Turn stone into gold/To work something of no worth into something of value. The story of Xu Xun is reminiscent of Greek mythology. King Midas is known as the man who could turn anything he touched into gold. He was granted this ability by Dionysus, the god of wine. (I like that one :-)) However, Midas would soon come to regret his wish. In short, I guess the common lesson from the quotes is: Greed can lead to you losing what you really value in this world. A wish for an alternate outcome can really change what makes a person who they are. Also, there are real-life implications when someone wishes for something crazy only to see how crazy it is.

    You put into words what most of us already fear to do @Geoff Hudson-Searle; the world's going to hell in a hand-basket (American expression..?). We have been down this way before, yes. The difference now is our exploding population, despite the appalling atrocities and disease of the so many countries including the third world, is fuelling the discrepancies between the rich and poor. Instinctively,of those of us feeling the crush of 7+ billion people there will be some who will use this to justify immorality, making things worse. These divides can only grow, sucking the life out of everyone else unless we can all decide to work together...I personally don't hold much hope for that as our world has become so complex and I begin not to see the big picture.

    Love the distinctions and contrasts of the two concepts. It has me wondering about "inspiration development" as a leadership development topic. Having a power vision and being able to inspire and motivate as appropriate would be powerful. MLK and Ghandi see to be be people who were able to both inspire and motivate.

    @Dave Worthen I really enjoyed this. I have had those throughout my life motivate me and very few inspire me. A similar trait I found in all those who have inspired me is they were STEADFAST in their teachings and beliefs. I feel that this is what inspired me. It was not their knowledge, yet wisdom from this foundation they showed me.

    We can only inspire others from on heart to another. The moment this stops so does inspiration.

    #14 @Ian Weinberg i am always grateful for your stopping by. Your magic of insight is so helpful as we look at the issues of social disparities. My thought here is @Cyndi wilkins is showing us the horizon of change while you are displaying the fundamentals of process in action. My attempt here is to add language that would point to practical methods of the change process. A framework of thought that could possibly lead to a higher level of self awareness.

    My, hope as always, i gave someone pause during the cycles of life.

    #15 @Gert Scholtz again thanks for the share and the comment. Character is almost stone. It is hard to chisel and change the shape. I typically reject anyone who has any statements of quick fixes. But our need for instant gratification to the question at hand can lead us to spending lots of money for a quick fix.

    When talking with managers over the years concerning troubled employees i ask the question, is this a skill issue or a character issue. If its a skill deficit that causing the troubling behaviour that's our fault and we need to review our training/hiring practices.

    If it is character, and i am using this word squarely within the purpose paradigm, my follow up question is how long are you willing to walk on the journey to change the character/purpose? If the manager is unwilling to invest in the individual then we need to release them to a job that their character better suites.

    Character can display our purpose and believe it or not when we sense uneasiness, we are actaully sensing a purpose that is incongruent with our own.

    Thanks for the comment and thoughts

    @Pamela ๐Ÿ Williams commented that the word success is a gateway to performance anxiety. I couldn't agree more, specifically as we read or view various presentations that make us feel like idiots because we haven't brought the $4,000 package to be great.

    In your comment i converted your words into my own and they fit the narrative of the post. Words are for us to define. WIthin purpose we must also define our own success. Although i admire the great leaders of success in today's world i do not measure success the way they do, i am not them, i didn't walk their journey. I also reject their power in assisting me in my own success. I define what success is, not the power of someone else. I enjoy reading their thoughts and their wisdom. But it all has to fold into my own paradigm of success.

    @Harvey Lloyd There is much food for thought in your article Harvey - thank you for posting. One part that struck me is where you mention that a reworking of the self-narrative, ie purpose, is a long process over many months, which at first may even feel mechanical and disconnected. This is contrary to the more popular (and I believe incorrect) notion of a sudden "unleashing" of true potential and purpose - if only the circumstances allow for it. Great thoughts in your article about the nature, origin and elimination of performance anxiety. Thanks again.
    Ian Weinberg
    16/11/2017 #14 Ian Weinberg
    Great post @Harvey Lloyd Thanks for the mention. At a neurophysiological level performance anxiety reflects a strong fear of failure. This amygdala generated mind state results in excessive adrenaline andcortisol production which compromises our PFC in terms of reasoning and choice making. Poses challenges to transcending this negative space which in itself perpetuates a negative feedback cycle (reasoning is a powerful antidote to excessive amygdala activity. The other antidote is gratification through reward.)

    Great buzz @Harvey Lloyd...The problem is we have become disconnected from our own authentic power by the smoke and mirror effect of the 'brand illusion'...whose sole purpose is the accumulation of power and money. That is not authentic power...that is power as external.

    If we are able to consciously align ourselves with the personality trait that is present for us in any decision making process...we are able to identify the trigger that sent a specific energy running through our system in the first place...by energy I am referring to emotion, (which is energy in motion) and support and nourish it's expression in order to fulfill whatever the purpose. For most of us it goes back to childhood conditioning.

    The purpose may be a side of self brought to your awareness in need of healing...a piece of self that lives in fear for example is disempowered...easily manipulated by external forces with the promise of watching out for our best interests. We are bombarded by the energies of fear, anger, jealousy on a daily basis via the media...nothing short of psychological warfare quite frankly...That is why we are so easily duped.

    When we become consciously aware of our different sides of self we are able to foresee the consequences of allowing for each expression without having to 'live' them if the outcome is not in our best interest. So we recreate our lives when we realize for example that anger is the result of a side of us in fear...When we understand that about ourselves, we able better able to understand that about others and not be so quick to judge or strike out in vengeance...

    #8 You have made an assumption that places you on the scale. Success can mean what you want it to. Success is personal within your purpose.

    Secondarily you have also added to the scale your interpretation of purpose. Your purpose is yours, mine is mine. Neither is relevant to anyone else.

    By defining your purpose as you have with your comment, then do that, don't let other thoughts or interpretation waver your from that purpose.

    Your comment in light of the post is the exact position i refer. Purpose and success have become something that you balance within a scale. No need, it's yours and you should gage your life through that lens.

    Ps. I love your purpose, it's a great statement about you.

    Harvey, you had me until the end๐Ÿ˜Š And I say that because of the "performance anxiety that the word "success" instantly brings to mind. I'll say it; I'm sick to death of the word. What about 'living' , just living? No purpose to it but to be. Why do I have to have a purpose? Does that make me more relevant? Aren't I looking in someone else's mirror then. We have but a short time on this earth and we're so busy being relevant, finding our purpose. My job purpose is to feed and cloth me. My life purpose is to breath, see, hear, touch, and smell until I can't. That's it, that's all. I like my job because I enjoy the feelings it gives me when I solve a problem; it's not my purpose, I'm just living and being me. I'd aid it a post once; my purpose is me, to live the life I've been given and not let words like 'success' fence me in because it opens the door to performance anxiety

    Great post @Harvey Lloyd The professional environments I was brought up in taught me that, "There will always be people ahead of me, (either knowledge, talent, ability, age, whatever), and there will always be people behind me". No one is perfect and everyone has their own particular strong points, or are better suited for some particular niches than others. The kitchen is a unique environment in that it is multi-faceted allowing for a diversity of skills to excel
    learning this perspective is difficult and teaching/mentoring this perspective to others can be very difficult, a big aspect is ego and much of performance anxiety can be traced back to that. I discuss this in my article about "Stress in the Kitchen" which I believe that you read Harvey. I also refer to "Fear" which is another contributing factor.

    #70 #71 It could be a fractal disintegration. The obvious hegemony carried by the economic elites, which are subjugating the whole humankind by means of fear (fear to lose your job, house, way of living), greed and selfishness, is at the moment maintaining us with a feeling of living under chains which are impossible to break. This situation is something that for our children is the only reality they have lived. They don't know that it was a time on which human rights (the right to have a decent home and job, for example) had a real meaning, and achieving them it was not only a war to fight, it was as well something achievable and achieved. And they live their lives under these chains, not seeing any possibility to react and raise. So if this is our legacy, yes, we are to see a fractal disintegration, on which our grandchildren will repeat the same formula again and again

    #57 @Ali ๐Ÿ Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee...Timing is everything. I was just commenting on another post about an incident I had last night in a restaurant. The jist of it is we were waiting for a table to be cleared as our party was the next to be seated...It was very busy, so the wait times were about 30 minutes...As I stepped away from the hostess desk to allow others in to give their names, a different hostess appeared and immediately seated the party behind us in line...not realizing we had arrived first...Somehow my name was not put on this list simply because we were about to be seated.

    By the time I turned around and realized what was happening, this other party was directed to our table and seated...Now my knee-jerk reaction was to approach the hostess and inform her that we were there first...I tried to wave her over, but she just smiled and went in the opposite direction...When my eyes met one of the patrons now sitting at our table, she too simply smiled away my at agitation...clearly realizing they had just bumped us from our table.

    Once the hostess was informed by the other staffer of the mix up, she could clearly see the fury in my eyes...several times offering me some water (probably to douse the flames) as I stood waiting another 20 minutes. But she never made any reference to the mix up...which ticked me off even more, but made me realize the intensity of my feelings did not match the stimulus. My fury at the situation was a symptom of a deeper issue...

    When I 'slept on it' the answer was revealed in a dream as several memories came flooding back to me concerning other women encroaching upon my personal 'space' in relationships...Hell hath no fury...right?!?!

    #6 I hear what you're saying about using the word "ownership" instead of accountability, especially in a small business setting. Indeed, if employees have a financial stake in the business, then it's even more appropriate to use ownership.

    I will have to admit the early years of leadership were really about accountability. I found out the hard way. Great post and Connerโ€™s book is now on the list

    I would add one thought. I believe that people have become accustomed to the โ€œturntableโ€. This adds layers for leadership who are attempting to lead the โ€œpeopleโ€.

    I'm in a profession where Mentoring is critical, I've had some great Mentors throughout my career and in turn I try to teach as much and as many as I can, which helps them perform better which in turn makes my job easier not to mention the enriching benefits for everyone involved. it is a career that engagement and involvement is crucial.
    One aspect of our business is there are many lessons learned through negative reinforcement. I will take examples and clips from the show, "The Office", to teach how NOT to do things which is also effective.
    Admittedly the kitchen environment is different, things happen very quickly, and I can see how these issues might be more pronounced in a large corporate setting but ultimately it comes down to management's leadership capabilities to cultivate an appropriate work atmosphere for staff to thrive in.

    Great post @Jim Taggart and I think you're spot on with your premise. To state the obvious; Leadership is the key and the best way is to "Lead by example". I agree with your point of people can only empower themselves but it is up to management/leaders to facilitate/cultivate/encourage people to do that by providing a positive and constructive environment to do so. Your point of "vocabulary" is valid, although "accountability" is applicable I prefer using "ownership" with my staff and as a leader this is the way I approach my job.
    While my experience is limited to a kitchen/restaurant perspective it is a high stress environment with focus on performance, establishing a common priority for everyone really helps in streamlining agendas, (our's is "The customer is the #1 priority", although I would think that would be it for any service industry). Having everyone working towards the same goal solidifies a "team spirit" and unifies "accountability", which in turn encourages more "ownership". This in turn translates to less micro-managing on my part which is better for EVERYONE. As a leader an advantage to cultivating this environment is that I learn a lot more from my staff as they are pro-active in their performance, trouble shooting and problem solving.

    Very nice thought piece @Jim Taggart. Wish we lived closer because this topic is definitely worth a three coffee discussion in my books! My second book (underway) addresses some of the issues you raise. The short answer is 'bring back the soul and the humanity aspects and get rid of all the rigid policies, policing and archaic white-man practices. We in Canada already see and feel the results to your questions 2-4. We are deeply mired in #5 in so many places yet I am very encouraged by positive steps all over and #6 will take a huge effort on everyone's part (individual, government and business.) I remain an eternal optimist at heart, despite my negative leanings. LOL

    Great Buzz. I like how you said Money and wealth are NOT the same thing. It reminds me of a few years after I graduated from college. This was about 15 years again. I needed a job, so I went and found the first job I could find. This was so I could have a source of income while I "look to find that Dream Job". During this time, I had met my first really mentors who began to teach me financial intelligence. One evening, I sat down with 8 of us at a back room in restaurant. This was were we had our Mastermind teachings. That evening lesson, the group couch wanted to get across the difference between money and wealth.
    He asked, "Be honest, If all of you lost your jobs or careers today, how long until you were bankrupt if you did not change your lifestyle?" I was surprised because the average answer was between 2-6 months. One of the men at the table was even a millionaire.
    When he asked me, I said "15 months." I was just a single guy, living in a small apartment. Because I had never been able to drive, I had never had a car payment. I had been putting money into savings and investments since early high school. Yet, I also lived way below my means. This was make in my Mac and Cheese and Ramen Noodles day.
    We all learned that we were all broke, just at different levels. Only one person had the answer "Never". He was our couch. His name was Alex. He was in his early 30, the youngest, second to me at the time. He and his wife created a residual cash-flow. Therefore did not need to depend on a job or career anymore.

    #6 The book, Gert, is definitely worth reading. I thought that quote was very insightful. Managers spend too much time trying to prevent things from happening rather than improving their ability to recover. We have very little control over what happens to us. The only thing we can control is how we respond to what happens to us.

His patrons were so moved by the shop ownerโ€™s generosity and the gratitude displayed by these very hungry people, that they began donating money to the cause. Now, the shop owner can afford to offer more meals to more people several days a week. That is what I call,โ€ awesomeness in action!โ€ People helping people, one slice at a time.

    When we share our good fortune in service to humankind, we help ourselves evolve personally and professionally as the self-less act never goes unrewarded...The trick is not to have expectations of a certain outcome, or you will find yourself disappointed every time...Be of good nature and always be willing to lend a hand to someone less fortunate...Now this pizza shop owner has a booming business and can afford himself some time off for a little pleasure once in a while;-)

My view on the subject covers defining the companyโ€™s competitive advantage correctly is possibly the most crucial part of any brand program, while external communications may raise expectations in the marketplace; it the experience that clients have with the brand that will translate into customer satisfaction and therefore greater profitability. A cost effective program needs to be established to ensure that all employeeโ€™s, partners, teaming arrangements and agencies are engaged with the brand, the message can be then carried externally to clients, and prospects with consistency. The brand needs to be brought to life through a variety of media channels to engage, explain and motivate employees. Measurement should be executed across improvements and refine company marketing plans based on this approach. I do not disagree that referrals can be obtained through a trusted network, therefore reducing the brand cycle, but company's should focus on customer lifetime value and not tactical jargon from under experienced marketing consultants. I will post an article on brand substance which you should read.

    #1 Ali, it took us a couple years compiling data on an annual basis to get to that Rule of Thumb but in the third year we were able to project Awareness and Preference and sales after the initial announcement ads were measured for multiple products. After that it was matter of looking at the collected data. There were variations (+/- 2%) but the trend lines stayed the same for several years.

    @Jerry Fletcher- very nice and clear buzz. Connections and persistence are among the keywords in your buzz I agree.
    I enjoyed reading about your eroding score system. I find it relevant for other fields. It is different from the Net Promoter Score as it uses different weighing methods. Why erosion by 20%? Was this an intelligent apptoximation? Regards
