    On Monday in our staff meeting my director let us know that she had given her notice. Was not expecting that! I've been working on launching my virtual assistance business and working with a bestie on launching a social media management and business coaching business. All while looking for full time employment elsewhere.

    It has been very stressful the last few months, more than ever. This news released a lot of that stress. The unknown is always causes a bit of anxiety, but I have to tell you, it was everything I could do to NOT turn cartwheels down the hall. I was on the verge of tears all day, I was so happy.

    Now the pressure is off to find another job and I can concentrate on my full time job and my new businesses. Whew! I have not been this hopeful for a long time. Now, maybe I can stay where I am until I am ready to retire. 3 years, 14 days.....but who's counting.

    #54 I enjoyed your presentation @Ali ๐Ÿ Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee. That word again "purpose". The ants serve the queen, without fail, with their lives and without the self gratification mentioned by @Robert Cormack. The duality you and @Sara Jacobovici have discussed is the challenge to purpose. The ants do not engage in such duality. They have a singularity of purpose. The ant serves the community and the community serves the ant.

    If i am building my brand and you are building yours, can a higher purpose really be served?

    The rules would have to establish that my brand is based on the communities success. Most animals require a habitat and the basic elements of existence. Humans have the same but we also have a higher level of social need. This social need requires us to exist cohesively within a community, yet personal brands are sometimes in direct conflict with this need. When a community loses touch with its purpose as a whole then our personal brands become the filler. Creating a self fulfilling prophecy of social deprivation. This can be seen in history many times over. However there is a self correcting mechanism that always comes along that brings the community back to its purpose. One would hope that this will be civil discourse and intellect. In history it typically involved major conflict.

    Interesting discussion.

    #53 @Harvey Lloyd- your comment stirred my mind to the extent I couldn't respond to it in a timely manner.
    You reminded me of a presentation that I wrote almost three years back titled "The Three Simple Rules ARe Everywhere":
    https://www.slideshare.net/hudali15/the-three-simple-rules-everywhere
    I wonder if you have two minutes to read it because I give many examples of the three simple rules that lead to complexity. Meanwhile I am still thinking about the three simple rules that would lead to generating a binding or gluing purpose. I promise to comment again, but I need to firm up my mind first. May be you could help me.

    @Ali ๐Ÿ Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee ants are an amazing social group when you watch them. Humans cant get three people in a room to agree and commit to something 100%. Yet ants, in the hundreds, operate without verbal discussion and attack a goal with their whole self.

    I drew a point of reference from your post. The point is at that transaction where choice has to be made. Where do i put my grain of sand in ant world, or how would you like for me to interpret the report in human world.

    Ants seem to have some very clear yet complex understanding of what to do in each situation and execute. The task from the single ant perspective is seen as pretty elementary, but from a social structure is quite complex. The rules are simple in execution but there is no feedback loop within the choice. Meaning the choice once executed is not compared to another ant.

    What does this tell us as individuals when we face a choice of execution? Our choices seem to be challenged by variables that have no bearing on the impending goal or milestone.

    In making choices at the transaction level within humans what three rules would be necessary to cut through the variables that don't apply? Can it be that simple? Keeping in mind, there are two things going on, a person speaking and a person hearing. Both or all would need to adhere to the three rules.

    Challenging stuff.

    Humans, say scientists, are poor multi-taskers. And managing our time is critical to improving not only our lives but productivity. That said, we can certainly learn much from ants - who clearly are a highly highly productive group. And interesting to know ants can choose work they enjoy. Perhaps we should be more like ants Ali!.

    Ants are amazing at working together, @Ali Anani, but we'll never know if any ant stood out or distinguished itself in any form of sand collection. As long as ants are willing to accept the anthill as it exists, there never will be a distinguishable ant. Maybe nature is telling us something.

    I don't particularly like the term 'Queen Bee' used in this context. Recall that there is only one Queen in a hive. That's my (only?) real objection. I can live with being voted down. Hell, I can live with an authoritarian 'you-will-do-as-I-say'. It isn't moi platform and I don't get to make the rules.

    27/02/2017 #16 Jared ๐Ÿ Wiese
    Just had a comment on LI:
    "the concept of a thermostat is spot on! When it gets too hot or cold, it's that gentle nudge that we need to look for.
    Early on in my musical career, I wasn't comfortable playing the piano. I'd rather play the keyboard because the keys were softer (that's what I was used to). At an event, someone put me on the spot by asking me to play the piano for a few familiar songs. I struggled my way through and my wrist felt numb for a while. It was outside my comfort zone, beyond uncomfortable.
    It was an eye opener though. I was motivated to practice playing the piano and conquer my discomfort. No pain, no gain!"

    My reply:
    "What a great example. It's not that we have to totally put ourselves into a crazy new environment - a deep freeze or scalding burn, to use the same concept. It's a "nudge" like you said. If we don't have any discomfort, we will stay as we are. It's our nature to avoid pain and keep pleasure.

    Einstein said, "No problem can be solved from the same level of consciousness that created it."
    He also said, "Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results."
    Put the two together and you begin to understand the need for some discomfort!"

Just think if our ancient ancestors had not gone past their comfort zones we would still be living in caves, huddled around campfires and wondering why no one had invented the wheel! I love the fact that Science has found that "Being uncomfortable is something you have to learn to embrace. Putting yourself in new and unfamiliar situations stimulates the part of the brain that releases dopamine, natureโ€™s happy drug."

    I do believe we have a set-point of comfort and with our habits will stop trying new uncomfortable things - in many areas of our lives. It is why we need a way to track, so we can we are uncomfortable and need to change that habitual set-point by learning and growing... improving.

    You had me at the title, @Jared ๐Ÿ Wiese. And then you delivered even more value than I could have anticipated.

    The flow state is definitely cultivated and enhanced by allowing ourselves to do new, challenging, things that capture our attention, which for the most part, brings up some feelings of anxiety about meeting the challenges.

    Good tips, Loribeth. One more I would add for any social media profile summary is to have an opening sentence that is compelling enough to draws in the reader. Otherwise, they might not read more due to time constraints and/or information overload, or boredom, etc. Ditto that for writing blogs.

    I am with you @JosephSprute I also send a personal thank you. I word it so I know if they asked ME to connect or if I invited them. It helps when I get a 2nd response from them immediately selling me a service. It tells me they didnt connect to network, they connected only to sell me something. THAT is more annoying to me than a canned connection request.

    Well said, I agree. The most impersonal thing in the inbox is the generic invite.

    16/12/2016 #15 Phil Friedman
    #12 Jared, with all due respect to you and Loribeth, I think the LinkedIn schtick about "bringing value to the relationship" is in many ways just smoke. If you're contacting me to sell me something (more often than not the case), that is not bringing value to the relationship, irrespective of how you try to spin it. If you have a wide array of contacts in the marine industry or significant industry experience and knowledge that you are willing to share with me, that's bringing value to the relationship. Getting to know me and my business better... or my coming up algorithmically on your list of suggested contacts to make are not bringing value to any potential relationship. And I'd rather see the BC factor kept at a minimum and simply be contacted because that is what LinkedIn and other platforms constantly tell people they should do. I know, I know, Dale Carnegie is rolling over in his (shallow) grave. Cheers!
    Loribeth Pierson
    16/12/2016 #14 Loribeth Pierson

    Jared ๐Ÿ Wiese

    #11 Now I see where you are coming from. I can understand your perspective.

    I also think @Loribeth Pierson, like many other LinkedIn trainers, feel the same as she said: if you are "bringing the value to the relationship" (you say in the connection request why you'd like to connect, rather than make the recipient sometimes guess)... then "You will receive more responses to your connection requests" (instead of them marking you as IDK).

    I follow a hybrid approach. If you're in my industry or an area of interest, I connect to the generic request. If they are a recruiter or IDK, I send them a polite message asking for their desire to connect.
    Phil Friedman
    16/12/2016 #11 Phil Friedman
    #10 Jared, not intending to hijack the thread, I was simply saying that in general using "canned" text in messages of any sort, connection requests or comments on posts, is disrespectful to the recipient. Personally, I don't mind receiving the LinkedIn standardized invitation to connect -- "I would like to add you to my professional network..." -- when the basis for the connection is obvious, for example, when it is from someone in the marine industry or a fellow writer. Of course, if the basis for the connection invitation is not evident, then the invitation may get lower priority because I have to first check the person's profile in order to respond.

    What is the difference between a "canned text message" on LinkedIn and a pre-written, uniformly the same, generic welcome message or comment on a post, copied and pasted on beBee? Seems to me they're both inauthentic and intended for show only.
    Jared ๐Ÿ Wiese
    16/12/2016 #6 Jared ๐Ÿ Wiese
    #4 #2 Agreed. I should have been more clear...

    Every connection request message automatically includes on the first line: "Hi {Recipient First Name (from their profile)},".

    This is true whether you customize our not. So be extra careful when you do customize it.

    Thanks Loribeth. Always good to optimize this section for SEO. However, I think this critical section must be adjusted depending on what one wants LinkedIn to be used for. A career-seeker must be practical and use terms employers or key decision makers would use to find your profile.

    If the profile is being used as a marketing platform for services or a business, this would change.

    Question: I am not sure about the third headline. I am not sure what the message means. Is this someone who is a nutritionist? Weight loss mentor? Accountant?

    I believe as we talk about methods of communication and distribution, i agree. I don't however, go along with these two disciplines as the sole source of the future. Being genuine, leading with purpose and fundamentals are all a part of moving forward. I am reminded of Wiley Coyote running so fast in a cloud of dust off the cliff.

    I dont disagree that the speed of sound is what it appears like when we look at the macro picture. One may even believe they are missing out on growth and relevance. But with just the smallest microscope we can see that few success stories exist compared to the many that use this approach. Many articles posts and commentary exist about the businesses that seem to drive through this speed of sound approach and win. I would venture to wager that the number of failed businesses in the last 5 years is equal to the number that don't exist from 1955.

    I am seeing a growing amount of independent coaches, trainers and consultants pop up to guide folks who walked through the speed of sound to success (Wiley Coyote). The reason is at the speed of sound we don't pick up the nuanced skills required to deal with critical thinking issues. I have watched many of my small business friends who caught the magic carpet of entrepreneurship and called me Ward Clever as i cautioned them about the speed at which they were committing to risk. The Tortoise and the Hare is still a relevant story. Some made it and i was happy for them, a large percentage did not and left their families, finances and futures in ruins.

    Move as quickly as you can towards success but understand it's not what you know that gets you its what's waiting ahead and you don't know. You will need a growing skill of critical thinking to manage ever larger unknowns of tomorrow.

    Some articles you read and are moved to comment on and share immediately. I did that with this article, but what is different with this one is I am still thinking about it a couple of days later. I think I need a beBee "scrap book" for brilliant articles like this.

    John, kudos to you for making the positive change necessary to advance your career in an uncertain job market. You provide a good roadmap for others to follow should they choose to take "a leap of faith." Like I always say, no risk no reward. And I'm very pleased that you are reaping the well deserved rewards. I shared this here, on Twitter and on LI.

    @John White, MBA, all 8 tips are great and #5 is simply perfect - but personally, it is the payoff of the last two lines - not having to feel nauseous on Sunday night - that is really what becoming your own personal brand is all about, And we also proved it is far from lonely - there is so much 'power' available once you have built that community. Insights, encouragement, and assistance is merely a comment away.

    Great article, John. I will refer to this often.

    I see this has a nice tie to @Kevin Pashuk's https://www.bebee.com/producer/@kevin-pashuk/what-do-you-bill-gates-warren-buffet-and-bono-have-in-common

    We need to take charge of our careers, which starts with our audience, what value we offer them, then our brand.

    Awesome points. "Never give up" I love a lot. The plant needs time to grow. So when you know what are you doing, you start getting there one step at a time. Thank you, @John White, MBA

    Very helpful advice @John White, MBA . I can't decide if point #5 or #6 is my favorite, but many people fail to realize point 5: "Before creating content, you need an audience."
    This post is the perfect "how to" complement to yesterday's New York Times op-ed "Donโ€™t Quit Social Media. Put It to Work for Your Career Instead." http://nyti.ms/2gZDkwL

    Thoroughly enjoyed that @John White, MBA I particularly enjoyed points 5 and 6. They are about community, listen to others and comment on what interests them. We should be doing this offline as well as online.

    Great article dear @John White, MBA!! And four years ago I felt exactly like you, I didn't have any visibility on Google, I didn't have LinkedIn profile, neither Twitter (well I had Twitter with zero tweets which is even worse...), and no web site. And now I look back and see the difference, and I support every of your steps on this article on Inc. Magazine.
    Well done!! And thanks for opening a path for some people. ๐Ÿ˜˜

    Hereโ€™s a Quick Way to Stop Those Embarrassing TextsThe pen was once mightier than the sword. Today, there is something even more dangerous โ€“ the send button.I am not afraid of the words I write, for they are easy to edit, undo and delete. The part that scares me is that little send button.

    Good thinking, Ari. That second glance often saves the requirement for many recovery texts - or flower delivery. I have a 24 hour rule when I'm angry or frustrated. I write the message and save in the drafts until I can read it for tone, calmly. Good reminder here.

    #3 @Elizabeth Bailey reminders which serve as cues for vigilance are often effective prophylactics with regards to complacency. I like how that almost sounds like I said something.

    Some people say "Love means never having to say you're sorry"...I don't know if they say that all of the time...maybe everybody says it some of the time. Hopefully this will be helpful for some folks or maybe partially helpful for all.

    "slow send" is a good habit to get into. When I look back at my texts and comments and see mistakes, I cringe. Good idea, Ari.

    Perhaps, the greater mess we feel is how difficult life has become with so much of technology and digitalization. Life goes all erroneous when we become unmindful.

    On the day my mother passed, I got a text from an unknown number offering assistance relating to my grief period.
    I responded with "Who the hell is this?"
    It was my new boss. I hadn't stored his number, yet.
    Fortunately, we'd worked together on occasion when we were equals, and he knew I was a smartass.
    He responded with ""I see you haven't changed a bit."

    If I got this reminder once a month it wouldn't be too often for me. Not that it's a mistake I make but I don't want to get complacent. Thanks for the call to attention @Ari Sytner

    Maybe that's why they invented scabbards to put swords in! Wait...upon further reflection, I've noticed some glaring flaws in my "logic"...maybe I should use the slow send trick here --while I reflect furt

    Great post, @Ari Sytner. It is easy enough to say the wrong thing when we are speaking, never mind in a text or email. I like your "slow send" habit. It's always good to rethink things. Shared this post all over for you.
