    #39 Sleeping time is the "quiet pocket" of time that allows us think or imagine with freshness. I appreciate your comment @Joyce Bowen

    In years past, my quiet time was merely when I was sleeping. I was too busy to stop and reflect. I would oftentimes problem solve in my sleep and show up back to work the next morning refreshed and able to put my discovery into play. I now have time to reflect and can hardly keep up.

    So many engaging thoughts, Ali -"fire from ice. . .if the ice is really clear" -how to engage with vision - a clear, engaging, sensory rich, and emotionally laden picture of the desired future state.
    "Quiet space for calm reflection" -how little time we leave ourselves to learn -without insight practice has the monotony and stagnation of learning-less, unaware action, which leads to error and safety risk.
    Riding "the eye of the storm "-what a description of how master change through reflective learning.
    Thank you for stretching my thinking.

In particular "I have read an article about human tears reflecting their mood and their state of mind when that tears were being shed" and this is very true. Apparently, our tears record our feelings and shape up accordingly. I have learnt from you as well and I am deeply grateful to you.

    I think each and everyone one was us needs a so called 'Me-Time' to reflect upon us being an individual person. Sometimes we tend to overlook our strengths and categorize it as our weakness and vice versa. I have read an article about human tears reflecting their mood and their state of mind when that tears were being shed.

    We need to have an eye on every detail which completes us as a person and which goes hand-in-hand by developing and helping us emerge strong from within. I would like to thank you for your previous statement that Dear Tausif we have lived through your experiences and we would like to carry it forward.

    I can't thank you enough for all the buzzes which you have produced and has helped us to engage with our other fellow bees. It's been a great learning experience for me here on beBee.

    #37 Lisa it's when they write full articles that are trashing what I do and calling snake oil sales that I draw the line.

    As a Shaman I am very patient about when I let myself talk about it like this.

    That means I have taken shit since day one on this site from a group pf people who act like they are protected by the company because of the marketing material they write and one them even went so far as to strongly imply that while totally screwing up my quotes and flat out lied to me about doing them at all for a while then has yet to stop churning them out.

    At some point you have to stand up and call bullshit on the oppressive behavior of people or they continue to think they have the right to treat the rest of us that way.

    #33 @Javier ๐Ÿ beBee I think if someone started writing nonsense about BeBee, and had an audience, and your company's existence was threatened, I (and your investors) would like to think you would not accept it in silence. That you would fight for what you believe in that you have sweated over. and built with your own skill.

    That's no different than users of Bebee who feel they are being mistreated, and receive no support from you, except for you to say, ignore it.

    I would come to your defense. Because it's the right thing to do. Yet, it's not going both ways.

    @Max๐Ÿ J. Carter Max, you were one of the first that I followed on beBee. (and still following!) I don't read everything you write, nor do I read everything that everyone else writes on here. I don't have the time. I read what catches my eye. Some of your writing has made me feel uncomfortable, but I'm ok with that, because then how do we grow? I embrace that feeling, because I know when I'm uncomfortable, I have exploring to do in my mind and emotions. I will never back away from exploring my feelings. If your goal in writing is to make people think, then you have succeeded with me. I'm truly sorry about the bullying and behind the scenes tampering. That is uncalled for, but not unexpected on social media. Also, beBee seems to be a platform for both writing and branding. Some people will do just writing, some want to be on here for business branding, and some for both writing and branding. The only other thing I'll say is that if someone is on here for business branding, and is bullying, obnoxious, or argumentative, they've branded themselves and their business in my mind. I know I won't be going to them for a job, or pay for business advice.

    #33 There a lot of us who get bullied by these people it doesn't work for at all.

    Instead of being able to focus on building our brands we have to deal with the constant barrage of articles written that slam our brand and what we are trying to build as well as a lot of shit talking in comments where we don't even show up

    I am sure it does work for you since you are reaping all the benefits from the hard work of everyone trying to build their brand here.

    What myself and others are tired of is taking it from these people who trash talk anyone and everyone and then are protected because it works for you.

    #29 That does no good when everyone else is reading it and judging your brand on it.

    It's straight character assassination and destroying someones way of making a living by taking calculated shots at their brand which is who they are.

    It's not a matter of ignoring them because if you do they get away with it.

    It's a matter of a community that allows it and does nothing to stop it and rewards those who are guilty of it because well hey they write great marketing pieces.

    @Max๐Ÿ J. Carter The scenario is very simple: 1) you know somebody who will be feel disturbed if you try to engage with him 2) don't try to engage 3) don't provoke. . In this case the issue is mutual. So IT IS VERY SIMPLE to solve.

    believe me... we say "no hay mayor desprecio que no hacer aprecio". A literal translation would be: "The biggest disdain/scorn lies in not paying any attention". We say that when we are mad at someone and we choose not to show our anger as a symbol of disdain. Because indifference can be much more hurtful than words.

    #27 Lisa I had another brand ambassador a couple months ago tell me that another brand ambassador asked I be boycotted and it's why I get very few shares.

    Some of my pieces are groundbreaking work that get no attention because of the online bullying that goes on.

    I fight it and my following is getting bigger every day.

    Bullying happens whether we allow it or not.

    I am not going to say names right now, but we all have witnessed the behavior of who I am talking about and I have been told he and his friends are protected because they write great marketing pieces.

    The bullying happens not because we allow it, it happens because other people don't step up and help someone out who is a target of it.

    Articles get written about me without my name being used and they talk mad shit even if I have not commented on something and when I complained about one person who had their brand ambassadorship revoked I had a more than a few brand ambassadors go off on me.

    I had a fellow brand ambassador tell me this individual harassed her and when she complained nothing was done.

    Then a brand ambassador called a woman I do work with at 1230am with high pressure bully tactics after talking shit about her business on beBee.

    I have been told point blank they get away with bullying whoever they want because they write great promotional pieces.

    Bullying happens because the community allows it and watches it and says nothing about it.

    #26 We can only be bullied if we allow someone to bully us. I refuse. I used to feel as though my writing didn't matter because some of those people who give that advice have never commented on one thing I write. I was aware of certain people's credentials and it intimidated me. I second guessed my writing and then I had a kodak moment, screw it... it doesn't matter what they think, I will write what comes to mind and those who care will read it.

    #25 @Lisa I dig what you are saying and I think the only reason it bothers me at all is because it sets a precedent int eh mind of those who read but don't write as to what they should be looking for and automatically discredits anyone not following the guides .

    It plants the seed in the mind for the reader and creates a form of auto judgement for the reader.

    Its the worst kind of subversive bullying and oppression because it is so indirect however leaves it psychological marks on the readers and an impact on the rest of the writers who don't follow guides.

    I understand what you are saying and to a certain degree I agree with you! I think some people leave very helpful tips for those who aspire to be writers, content writers and more. Sometimes I read buzzes that generalize and it can appear (maybe it's not the authors intent) that some writers feel others should just stop writing all together. I will never judge a person's writing style and I hope they don't judge mine because I write from my heart and I also write to share. I just consider myself a novice but I'm not trying to impress anyone. My suggestion, blow by those buzzes that get on your nerves and keep doing what you do! I have to admit, it used to bother me too... I felt like what I wrote wasn't important or didn't pass the smell test. LOL

    language true is a unique means of communication and it is equally in the continuous process of evolving. different country having different socio economic fabric and language also equally evolved. i have observed in a factory, workers are making effective signals to communicate within themselves and as owing to tremendous sound in the factory, their reflexes are equally evolved. even in our daily life we may use plenty of words which are traditionally being used and being carried on generation after generation, virtually ingrained in our reflex. we seldom ponder seriously about its pragmatic value. however, lovely insight @Lance Scoular! enjoyed read. thank you for the share.

    @Lance ๐Ÿ Scoular- I am sharing this beautiful buzz for it contains great wisdom. I ask myself sometimes it is less or more or less and more together? I try to avoid separation thinking because it limits our choices.
    You brilliantly showed why less is more. I have experienced myself that the less time I have, the more I am productive. People need as much time as you give them. We only then increase their slack time and giving more time means getting less work done.

    The level of our understanding is not relevant to communicating within the sophistication of our audience. I tend to be overtly entrusted to the most complicated possibility yet when discovering the solution it presents itself with grating simplicity. The glass is half empty or half full.

    Thanks @Lance ๐Ÿ Scoular, for writing on a topic close to my heart; communication. Definitely interests me to look at how we use words and the meanings we ascribe to them. This does shape our choices and behaviours. Culture is also a factor that influences the meanings or expressions. Individual experiences also influence the meaning. My mother's eastern European culture of her generation put much value on more; more education, more titles, more money, "the more the better". In the movie Rhapsody in Blue (1945), a biography of the American composer and musician George Gershwin, the father always asks Gershwin how many pages is his latest composition. When he gets the answer, the father repeats the number and says, "A very important piece".

    The power of intent is what you want it to be and when you want it to be. "What you do with it is up to you. Use it or lose it. Shrug it off and move on or think about it and figure out how it applies to your own work." Nice piece, Jim.

    This is a very timely piece for me, Jim. I've been thinking a lot lately about the writing process, finding your voice, etc. I think it plays out differently for everyone, but intent is everything. Knowing what it is you want to say and giving your writing a purpose is what drives everything. "...if you want to be read, followed, shared and appreciated your intent needs to come across loud and clear in every piece you write." I like that line. @Graham๐Ÿ Edwards, this is what we were discussing the other day.

    "Intent' is a strong word Jim. It drives every thought, every creation; whether music, writing, or any life pursuit for that matter. I just read a piece by Cory Galbraith "How to be an Original Thinker from the Inventor Who Heard Voices" of which I shared and borrowed the following quote;

    โ€œNever forget that if there weren't any need for you in all your uniqueness to be on this earth, you wouldn't be here in the first place.โ€

    If our intent is to be unique in all that we do and how we approach whatever we do then we add to the universe.

    I saw that book at Barnes and Noble while looking for another "for Dummies" book. I paused but didn't buy it. I'm making a trip back today. I was a huge Springsteen fan. Cause Baby I was born to run and I was Born in the USA! LOL! (it was the jeans and T-shirts - they made me swoon - he was my modern day James Dean)

    With all the changes on LInkedIn, it should be occurring to you that you may be at the mercy of social media platforms that are not that interested in what you need.

    Social Media Not Enough For Small Business: You Need A Website

    These days most small businesses jump into the social media space -- primarily on Facebook, LinkedIn, Bebee and other similar platforms.

    They lose out on the power of running their own websites on their own domains.

    It's really not surprising. It takes no great technical skill to jump onto social media. Create an account, do a profile, and post and comment. That's it.

    It's about as simple as it gets, while creating and running one's own website, if one doesn't have any background in doing so, is daunting, and after all, there's hundreds of millions of social media users, just ripe and eager to read your message (or so goes the belief).

    Not only is this like running a business on one cylinder, and expecting eight cylinder power, but there are real and substantive risks associated with being dependent on the good will and policies of a third party (social media platform) when that third party has NO contractual obligations to you.

    Bacal and Associates celebrates 25 years in business in 2017 In this series, and as part of the 25th anniversary celebrations for Bacal & Associates, I'll be sharing with you a number of hints and tips on small business.

    This is the difference between management that understands the desire to be understood.
    Every one invests them selves in their content marketing.
    Every one deserves recognition to various degrees which is determined by who reads the content, not the writer.
    So where do you go to find that your not any different regardless of your following numbers etc.

    In 29 yrs , yes since the internet went public in May 1987 I have not seen this before.

    Here is how anyone can do a simple feedback test of your reach.

    Pick any title of your producer articles.
    Go to your search engine and look for it.

    Example Title
    Life Without Lackluster
    We did this on 6 major search engines.
    Most of them showed my article here on beBee as #1
    The others I still found on page one.

    You have to give recognition where it is earned.
    Social sites are not a one way street.

    #37 It is Ok @Javier ๐Ÿ beBee, I am a great fan of your accomplishments @beBee. I saw the very intersting post regarding ambassadors and equity and i understand the rules here, especially ones re: popularity & visibility. Comparing back to back tools LinkedIn vs beBee, it appears yours is far way more efficient, i get x20 or x30 more audience on beBee rather than the world's #1 recruiter's tool. I am working on a concept on digital workspace to deliver content in time and with all the business process required for lean collaboration. Though that would be a great fir with beBee. Anyway, keep on ! I will promote and become a poweruser, even if i am set apart from ambassadors/equity. Was just saying that and waiving hands over my head because the added value you proposed was worth spending budget on ambassading. :) cheers.

    The Medium is the Message - said Marshall McLuhan! I believe beBee is an apt example that quote. A Medium that is also a Message. A loud and clear one. Of INTEGRATED & INCLUSIVE, ONLINE PRESENCE. With its seamless integration of the Personal and Professional brand that every Individual is. It has pioneered a shift from Social Media to Society Media with its predominant characteristics - of Affinity, Accessibility, Association, Acknowledgment and Authenticity.

    Very moving buzz @Javier ๐Ÿ beBee. Couldn't agree more, most of us learn from our mistakes and we will continue to make them. By learning from past mistakes and not repeating them are key to growth. I feel as you do, most people act with good intentions and I honestly try to keep that in mind. I actually try to think of the 'why's' behind a person's possible motives and in the end most times I can conclude, we are all human and no one knows what is going on behind closed doors. It's always my hope that others see the person in me beyond my words, I try to be a fairly open person. I have met so many wonderful people on beBee who would give the shirt off their back to help others and that puts a big smile on my face. What we share in common does lead to deeper relationships. Thanks for this!

    The trolls and abusers have been asking for censorship for years now. While I support extremely unpopular views (mine or others'), I don't support out-and-out abuse like what we've seen on Twitter (I haven't seen it on beBee so far but I don't monitor all ten million+ users). Many mass media comment sections have been eliminated just because it's impossible to keep up with all the abusive and violation of the rules posts.

    The ones screaming about it the most are the ones generally most in violation of the rules.

    I for one am not losing sleep over Milos Y's lifelong ban from Twitter. He wasn't a thoughtful commentator, he is a bile-filled ragebaby whose only purpose is to make other peoples' lives miserable for no good reason. Fortunately, he seems to have jumped the shark this week with his comments appearing to support pedo- and paraphilia. Lost his book deal and several engagements and the good news for him is that he has something new to tantrum about.

    In this day of fake news and idiots easily led by ridiculous stories about Hillary Clinton promoting pedophile pizza rings, it's time to have a new debate on censorship. When some moron walks into a pizza shop with a gun looking for perverts, it's time for censorship.

    #23 Lots of great snippets here, @Aurorasa Sima On banning by IP, that will only work if the abusers have static IP's which is quite uncommon in Canada (don't know about elsewhere). I get a different IP address each time I boot up. MAC addresses will work, since they are associated with devices, but I don't "think" they are available to the platforms.

    As for keeping sites abuse free and whether they want that....good point. When a celebrity feud breaks out on Twitter, I'm sure they get HUGE boosts in readership (lord knows why)

    I don't know what kinds of technology platforms have for automatically taking care of some of these problems, I guess we'll see what BeBee unveils.

    The short take

    Platforms like BeBee need to moderate content to) benefit the platform itself to make it sustainable, and b) to benefit all users.

    Group/HIve owners need to be able to moderate content for the good of all members and to keep things topical.

    Article posters should not have the ability to moderate comments on their articles, since their articles are for their own self-interest.
    Robert Bacal
    19/02/2017 #21 Robert Bacal
    Just posted this on the other article that appeared after this one:

    I have a relatively straightforward approach to the issue of who should be able to do what, based on the idea of creating common good.

    Bebee's responsibility is to themselves, and therefore to foster a productive environment on the entire platform. Hence, they get to, as owners, decide what happens where.

    Hive owners, because of their sweat equity and also because they are stewards of the hive then get to decide what stays and what remains in that hive. Otherwise, it all goes off topic.

    Individual posters do NOT get to decide what comments remain, since their primary concern is readership, and they have no obvious obligation to contribute to the common good. Any obligation of that type is secondary.

    @Javier ๐Ÿ beBee posted the following: https://www.bebee.com/content/1239991/1125737

    "beBee will be the first platform where we will be able to auto moderate ourselves"

    It's not clear what that will mean except that it is supposed to appear in the next platform update.

    If it involves filtering one's own feed, that is a good thing, of course, but if it puts the honus on the many millions to filter out things like obscene posts, hate speech, etc while continuing to allow posters of spam, junk etc to post, then I'm not sure it addresses the problem of the "bad" driving out the "good".

    Looking forward to seeing the next generation of Bebee, though because LinkedIn content and hatred seems to increase every day.

    Just came from LinkedIn where I sadly stumbled across several post attacking family members related to the candidates from the past election.

    None of it is relevant, none of it is even political discussion. Which makes the point:

    The Bad crowds out the good, until nothing good is left, and people give up on the platform.

    @ Aleta Curry - no, perhaps not more generous. 'Out' means out of the platform and barred permanently - brooking no argument. I perhaps would put one error down to linguistic differences and colloquialisms (yes, I have been caught that way myself) especially between English speakers as a native language and those who have English as a second language. (So through the use of a common and harmless local colloquialism I lost a very good contact/colleague). After the first well ....

    #14 Brian the use of the report button has potential problems, depending on how its used. I don't have much more to say on that at the moment. I can say that if I had a facility on a blog that I might host, I'd look at the post/comment reported, and decide using my own judgment, which would be my perogative. I would also spell out clearly what the report button should be used for, and make sure that it isn't used by the same people over and over again with little consideration for the other people around.

    While report buttons are anonymous to regular visitors, it is not anonymous to those running the blog/platform. Use of it when it's unwarranted wastes time, and I wouldn't take kindly to that.

    #11 @Aleta Curry It's difficult for people who haven't had the responsibility of moderating forums, etc, to understand or see things from that perspective. I've found that it's fairly easy to tell, from one post, whether a person is there to disrupt, spam and for selfish purposes, or whether they are there to participate in good faith.

    On my performance management group on LinkedIn, I post the rules, and it's not uncommon for me to turf someone after one spam message. Positive participants display different interaction patterns than do the people who basically end up destroying the forum/group.

    I'm not even averse to the milder swear words. You write 'life's a bitch', I don't care. You write 'you're a bitch', post is summarily deleted.

    If people use really bad words (but not directly at any of the other kidlets) I'll privately ask them to rephrase.

    @Juan Imaz - excellent article on personal branding and the beBee affinity networking concept. I'd like to add how powerful one's brand can become if personal interests intersect with professional interests.

    For example, in my current job as technical writer for a natural gas fuel systems company, I am always working with "automotive technology" and "mechanics" which are also personal passions of mine.

    I am also very involved in electronics and radio (RF) technology and have enjoyed my career in those industries.

    And finally, I enjoy teaching and helping others, so I am involved with educational plus hobby activities such as Maker Faire. I am blessed with actually enjoying my work and loving my job.
