    A lot of food for thought and thank you for explaining consciousness @Ian Weinberg. I agree couldn't agree more with this statement, "These include: gratitude for the experience of life and its blessings as emanating from the source files of creation; respect, sensitivity and empathy for others - since we all are connected in the timeless-spaceless zone; calmness and trust in acknowledging that we are small but unique components in an awesomely vast system" Sensitivity and empathy play a major role in many relationships whether they are personal or professional!

    @Ian Weinberg A super post on one of the big questions of life - what is consciousness? I find it fascinating that neuro-electrical activity takes place a few milliseconds before a conscious decision. Which may lead to another big question - the existence and extent of free will. Or as someone said: "My will is free but my won't is not". The emotional tags you refer to overlaps with what Antonio Damasio calls the somatic moment/memory. A thought provoking read - thanks Ian.

    What a great buzz from the heart and so honest @Donna-Luisa Eversley! You wrote, "I'm not sure if I can ever be the mother she wishes for, but I am the mom she has." I used to feel the same, is your daughter a teen now? I thought my daughter would alway find fault with me because I had tight rules and I wasn't a conformist. Many of her friends were allowed to do whatever they wanted and lacked rules. So, I think many of us that do enforce our rules are seen as the witches or the enemy by our girls in particular. My son never challenged me and his personality differed. I can attest that my daughter and I are best friends today. She actually talks about some of her own past behavior and tells me she fully understands why I made the rules I did and should have been stricter with her haha. Can we say, things I never knew about?? I don't want to know now either! I think things will work out in the end, it just takes time and reassurance that you're doing the best you know how out of love! When it comes from a place of love, that's all that matters.

    Ah, those, on or about, teenage years when we thought we were invincible and we had to be cool. Our own pressures and our peer pressures can cause a lot of confusion. If we don't understand the confusion, then we place the blame elsewhere. So, mom - tag you're it. I feel certain it's a phase that will pass and your daughter will come around. Immaturity can wear many faces and only time will determine when the next step is taken. We are all a work in progress and remembering your other post, we will never be complete. https://donnaluisawordslayer.wordpress.com/2016/12/01/just-thinking-out-loud-life-with-me-is-a-limited-time-edition/

    Great buzz @Robert Cormack. I really try hard not to go to bed mad but that doesn't mean all issues were solved before falling asleep. I remember years ago we were taught that philosophy about loved ones because tomorrow may never come. That stood with me and still does to this day. If I feel angry about something before bed I try to find a way to deflect my anger by listening to music, reading positive material or self-talk to tame my inner beast haha. I guess this could apply to Marketing too?

    An interesting info, Robert Cormack! I don't feel that negative about the Mcdonald's, perhaps because I don't watch TV. Instead when I visit the place I see that they, for example, donate money to the orphanage. There is something good in everything, it's just a question of what we focus on. "Wake up with a smile" I'd add)

    I attended the seminar from Drs. John and Julie Gottman based on the "love lab" with the only real scientific research ever captured between couples over 14+ years. This stuff works, because it's proven. (https://www.gottman.com/about/research/).

    For the reference of "5:1 ratio of pleasant memories to really stupid ones", Gottman actually says...
    "The magic ratio is 5:1. In other words, as long as there are five times as many positive interactions between partners as there are negative, the relationship is likely to be stable."
    - https://www.gottman.com/blog/the-positive-perspective-dr-gottmans-magic-ratio/
    I bet Dr. Gottman would say calling or labeling your partner or something s/he did as "stupid" would actually be one of the four horsemen.
    The Gottman Ratio is about couples actions, not a restaurant and its customers brand memories.

    "Myth: Never go to bed angry. If you don’t hash through every conflict right away, it’ll lead to resentment and ultimately blowups.
    ... Ideally, of course, we would all be able to truly forgive every slight and make up before bedtime. But guess what? No one is that perfect. And, in reality, most spouses don’t solve problems well when they’re mad."
    - http://www.today.com/id/24582786/ns/today-today_health/t/go-bed-angry-new-marriage-rules

    So snoring might be :1, Jim. 😉
    But I see no ties to Gottman and marketing. Close

    Great piece Robert. I have no trouble not being mad when I go to bed. Depending on the issue, that ability tends to aggravate my wife to no end. The corollary to the rule of not going to be mad, is to not avoid the issues that caused the madness in the first place.
    Gert Scholtz 🐝
    02/12/2016 #1 Gert Scholtz 🐝
    @Robert Cormack Maybe much of this has to do with what psychologists call Loss Aversion - claiming we are 2-3 times as sensitive to loss than we are to gains. Simply stated - we feel much worse losing $100 than we feel happy winning $100. Wonder then if the add went instead of "I'm loving it" to "I'm not losing it". My random 2c then. Thanks Robert.

    I am afraid i have TV's everywhere, not really sure why i watch very little in way of mainstream shows. I find the commercials sophomoric and challenging to be in the same room with. I am with you that as much as we lock our doors and secure our children from would be harmful environments, TV is the silent infiltrator we tend to overlook.

    Your eleventh graders are the norm. Life with TV is almost like missing an appendage. I like the commercial that shows grandma and grandpa upgrading to some high-speed cable TV so the grandkids will come and visit.

    #3 When I was just out of graduate school, I blindly accepted a position as the public relations officer for a prestigious medical school. I thought I was on my way.
    Turns out I was the runner-up for the position. The winner only lasted a few months before running as far away as possible.
    The director, my boss, thought she knew everything.
    I should have realized something was a miss when I saw a three-ring binder on the shelf behind her desk that read "Public Relations Made Easy."

    Great share on a very important topic. I consider bad culture in a company to be a reflection of poor or weak leadership. The same leaders are so blind to their own failings, that they are genuinely surprised that the culture is toxic enough that even they recognize it. Good luck getting HR to do anything about it.

    John White,MPA .You have left nothing unsaid on your article.Sometimes candidates become unable to pick up any of these signals or ignore them because they think of the the pay check!.As marketers,we always know about toxic cultures from the way they treat their customers.So,my advice to new candidates who might not able to know whether there's a synergy between their career objectives and the employer objectives or whether the employer has credibility or not ,to go to the market to pick up such signals or find that synergy between the employer and their customers.Toxic companies are reflections of toxic bosses who often give you marching orders that will put you on middle grounds, because they usually have opposing ideas that can take you in different directions..You can't easily pick up such a signal during the selection process, but when you go to the market and listen to some of their customers ,you may find that such an employer are often telling lies; when they find themselves unable to justify their actions or their actions have become no more consistent with their promises to their customers.When such an employer find that their initiatives and their identity are no more consistent ,they lose integrity and begin to compromise or turn around the standard they have set for themselves.

    Ok, back to the article- Excellent! You have a good memory about my experience with a toxic boss. I have to admit, she was so fake and I never picked up on that although, in hindsight, I should have. I think it seems too good to be true, then it probably is.

    You touched on every symptom many feel when working for a toxic boss, including myself. I would get such bad stomach pains before work sometimes I'd have to call and make up a lie as to why I would be a few minutes late. I also should have left as soon as she began talking about other employees while pumping her own ego not long after I began. You nailed it with this article!

    We live in a haze of visual pollution, Laurent, sorrounded by gaudy billboards, traffic signs, neon lighting and the ever present graffiti. But every so often, a real street artist grabs our attention with a mural, or even an embellishment around a building detail, that grabs our attention and stops us in our tracks with its wow factor. Christian Guernsey would appear to be one of these. Thanks for sharing.

I just wish I was there with you in Madrid, as you all strike me as such a fun and dedicated group in a wonderful workplace and work culture. As a former journalist, I do have have a few questions, however:
    1) @Teresa Gezze and @Tifany Rodio: how to do you look so amazingly beautiful despite all the food you claim to eat?
    2) How can a food lover refrain from gaining weight? Any tips?
    3) And, for your male colleagues: how can your guys concentrate while working so closely with co-workers who look like super models? Are your wives, girlfriends, or "significant others" ever a little jealous?
    Don't get me wrong, you guys look good too. But I'm a plain looking American male with a receding hairline and a face "only a mother could love." Thus, I'm a bit envious of all these good looking Spanish men, including @Javier beBee and @Juan Imaz. I sure you guys can understand.

    Hi @Camille Mari, I work in my slippers too :)) I love how you described what you do. I'm happy you are happy! It's not easy working from your home, many distractions. I have set aside quite a bit of time at night to work when it's quieter and my mind isn't so distracted by the world. Being happy is so important.

    You wrote: "Sometimes I feel I'll conquer the world, sometimes I feel nothing is going to work." Me too, I have good days and not such good days. It feels great when you do feel as though you can conquer the world!!

    Loving what one does is the best revenge for those really baffling recruitment stories. I am cheering you on, @Camille Mari.

    And here is a secret that should be more well known, just about everyone teeters on the "Sometimes I feel I'll conquer the world, sometimes I feel nothing is going to work." spectrum.

    All it takes is just a little more time spent in conquer mode to stand out from the crowd! And the way to do that is to work at something you would be doing anyway.

    Great attitude @Donna-Luisa Eversley, we are all incomplete! When we stop learning, helping, giving- well we stop living. I think we all have days we feel stagnant or may even stagnate temporarily and for me, it's recognizing those times and stepping back up to the plate. Very inspiring Donna and maybe we all need to push each other once in a while if another is withdrawing. We never know another's circumstances, it always helps to know we have others that care because we can't always be 'all that' for everyone. Sometimes we need an extra hug, someone to listen etc... I'm glad I saw you on facebook or I would have reached out to you on here, I would have been very worried about you, my friend. Thank you for this, you have a way of working through things, whatever they may be and coming back with a fervor.

    "Life is a paradox of balance." Feeling at peace with our past and full of hope for our future is the way to stay blissfully present to the sorrows and joys of being alive right now. Every minute we can figure out how to balance in the present brings us more fully alive.

    Donna-Luisa, when I finally came to grips with a single fact, my life outlook became much more serene. Of course, serenity is relative. That fact is life is open-ended. There will always be items on my to-do list and places-to-see list, right to the end. As some items get checked off, others will pop up. Which is part of being alive, and not being one of the walking dead. So I understand, I think, your thoughts here. And thank you for providing the reminder to reflect on what it is to be truly alive. Cheers and best wishes.

    It appears your mindset changed through feeling others pain(s) which lessened you own? You are so right, "Truth involves us all," and so does love for our fellow humans. When we can focus on something outside of ourselves, I think it can help to put much into perspective. Also, having support from those that care about us is also conducive to our mental frame of mind.

    your lovely insight instigate to ponder an alarming issue being prominent in my country, India, where bees are being dispensed from one region to other region in boxes where they can introduce the business of honey and make sizable profit, keeping the peoples economy at stake who are traditionally engaged in honey exporting business. besides, shifting of honey business by transporting bees are directly affecting the overall agricultural economy of the concern place, as the cross pollination and pollination by bees will be inevitably affect the other agricultural produces. so, i guess, being intoducing by number of do's and don'ts will intimidate the new bees to produce buzzes.

(Nightmare world re-opens on December 10) I have insider insights into the media that I did not have previously. I would be grateful if someone could share my story to the communications/ media hive. Ps. My friend was not murdered in Australia. The country it happened in means that is highly unlikely to be solved and hence the filtered character assassination story will be the one remembered.

    You have tapped a great media issue, the insatiable need to bring judgment upon all involved, give reason to crimes or justifications. I need none of this. A person who was thriving was removed from our presence by someone who was not. Motivation, understanding or justification will not change this fact.

    But media has had an effect on our society. This effect has been some form of higher reasoning that we can overlook crime based on background, conditions and emotional state. We reason this out in a public format that seems to alienate the victim of the crime.

    I feel for your friends family.

    #4 I'm sorry about what happened with your dad's book. Your dad's publisher is the kind I don't like so much. I noticed on the Amazon page there is no Kindle version for your dad's book, which is very strange because it should be available (and or part of the contract), and cost no more money for you. I help authors with self-publishing and sometimes it can sound like a nightmare too, but it still cheaper and the way you want. Drop me an email if you need help with something.

    #5 I agree. Self-publishing can be done very well and have a professional touch now.

    Self publishing has come a long way since the days when authors had to print a bunch of books and store them in a garage. Print on Demand means that if someone orders a book from Amazon, Apple, Books-a-Million, Barnes and Nobel as examples they print one book and send it to the customer. Books are also available as eBooks in all these places and registered with Ingram Wholesalers. The editing is your task, the cover can be done professionally and the marketing is whatever you put into it. The standard publishers are great if you are a celebrity or a famous media personality.

    Great post. Anyone who is considering publishing a book either self or otherwise should consider your thoughts. My dad had a burning desire to take a story he had written into a published book. (https://www.amazon.com/Man-Called-Jesus-Thomas-Lloyd/dp/1939930448/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1480437576&sr=8-1&keywords=a+man+called+jesus). He is retired and my brother and i decided this would be a great project for him. We funded the book through a regional publisher who we felt would add a personal touch with dad. It cost us about 8,000 US to get the box of 50 books and all the other bells and whistles.

    My brother who is not as flexible as myself in communications had a nightmare with some of the online self-publishers. They pushed a lot of hope and dream but in the fine print the costs were astronomical. If the hope and dream part did come true the contract basically had you making money after the first million in sales.

    Your advice is prudent and food for thought. Self-publishing is a learning adventure. Well worth the money we spent. All three of us learned a lot about publishing. I sense that i could evaluate the process with a little more wisdom now.

    Rejection, failure and loss makes a person dull..all like ready to drag a person in deep depressions. At such times, a solid dose of perseverance and good memories of past can give a person a sense of contentment and gratitude.

    #25 Yes @Tausif Mundrawala, most people do not know there is a disconnect. No-one is going around saying, 'I am disconnected from my body" . they are going around saying, "I am anxious, I am overwhelmed, i am busy, I can't find peace or happiness or my creativity." When we connect we can find peace in our body and mind, happiness in the simplest moments, creativity emerges and we can be the calm centre amidst the storm.

    Yes @Tausif Mundrawala #19 all of our senses are working even if we do not notice and sense them as we have become so preoccupied with thinking rationally and with words. when we pay atttention to the other ways our bodies are making sense of the world we can integrate this knowledge with our thinking and generate better ideas, solutions, actions and be more aligned between what we think and say and what our body does. making the connection opens us to new knowledge that is waiting in the wings.

    I really like this comment Ken. Sometimes you just can't play it safe, you need some adventure, to try new things, to speak out when things go awry. For now it is still some of the greatest freedoms and gifts we have; free will and free speach. The Internet has given us the ability to reach a tremendous audience and as long as we stay tactful and factual great things can be accomplished. Ain't no mountain high enough! Ain't no valley low enough! #28

    Hi @Cory Galbraith, the real life examples you wrote of above are good reasons to live in the moment and to the fullest. I think it's easy to get caught in the trap of 'what needs to be done daily,' and even easier to just forget that we need to experience life beyond our homes and work. I like your accountant, he has a great attitude! I'm glad you have learned that anger and fighting with others serves no purpose except to weigh us down. I try hard to forgive quick and forget. I'm still working on being more spontaneous and doing things I actually fear... things others may enjoy! Thanks for this reminder.

    Thanks Cory for sharing such profound advice and words of wisdom. Just to reiterate some of your key points:
    1) Life is in the living -- and life is fragile.
    2) Worrying is a waste of time and bad for your health. Rather, adopt a positive mindset and be positively expectant about your goals, plans, dreams.
    3) Remember, "No risk, no reward." Don't be afraid to take a "leap of faith" once and a while. Ask yourself a simple question: if others can do it, why not me?
    4) Like the iconic Nike campaign stated: "Just do it!" -- as there's no time like the present.
    Thanks again for the very helpful and insightful buzz, Cory. It's always a pleasure to read you here. I and many other bees appreciate your writing and appreciate YOU.

    Pot Roast and fresh green beans cooked with a couple thick slices of bacon for flavor; Those are my pot-of-soup that will still bring a tear. Every Sunday my grandmother made a roast and either fresh green beans or some she had home canned in the summer. She would wait expectantly as my grandfather sampled the roast and he would say every time: "A little tough Pearl". She would be livid and swear never to make him another roast. He'd laugh and the next Sunday there would be another roast for him to call tough. He passed in a similar manner as your father-in-law and I don't think there is a day that passes that I don't think of them and miss them. They were my touch stones that always made me feel safe, but most especially they meant 'Home'.
    The other is waking up to the smell of coffee brewing. I bought a coffee maker with a timer after they were gone so I could wake up to brewing coffee whenever I needed to feel close to them. thank you for sharing your story with us. Sometimes the best things in life are those little things, those fleeting moments, that remind us that life, a caring family, and love are all that matters.
