Comments05/12/2017 #10 Savvy RajAn awesome amalgamation of thoughts on writing and writers on @Bebee @Randall Burns. Truly wonderful to read your perspectives on these amazing writers you have highlighted And thank you for including me hereas well as
highlighting these lines from my buzz today ... and totally get the why.A pleasure to read it here again. 😊05/12/2017 #9 Charlene Norman@Randall Burns … I have read and written extensively since I was a child. Nothing brings me greater pleasure. I am not a writer. My entire life, people came to me to fix their writings because I could make their words sing better. I am not a writer. I do not write novels, or screenplays or long-winded fluff. I make complicated business ideas and processes simple. So anyone can understand them and make gobs of money with them. I am not a writer. My first book got rave reviews because it was deceptively easy to understand and had a sense of humour.
I have a fever that needs to released a few times a month. That fever is for a regular person with a grade eight education. I deliberately write to that grade level. I don’t rant. I don’t run on. I don’t pretend. My stuff is pretty tight with an in your face been there attitude.
This year (!) I finally accepted that my sideline is -- I am a writer. You too belong in that same category. You too are a writer. Write your shit down. Edit yourself ruthlessly. Your audience eagerly awaits. To your success!05/12/2017 #6 Cyndi wilkins@Randall Burns...This is a wonderful tapestry of intelligence...sewing the seeds of inspiration to all those caught up in the web...We are one continual network of thought, creating the opportunity to take all those 'things' Ian speaks of and make them real by bringing them to life through the art of writing...It is our channel of choice where others might perhaps choose music or theater...Every day is a blank canvas;-)05/12/2017 #5 Harvey LloydThanks for the mention and thoughts. The writing bit is my way of expressing something that is rattling in my head. Posting is for those thoughts that get written and seem to make any sense. I enjoy your style of writing as its learning, inspirational and full of life.
I find all too often people think about something, with synaptic storms raging, and can never get a grip on the topic. Writing forces you to be coherent. Further posting the coherence opens up the thoughts to critic. Making you refine the thought even more.
I found out many years ago that when we were targeting new clients i would try and write a letter to them and describe why they should use our firm. Someone in the office would read it back to me so i could hear my own thoughts out loud. Talk about some silly stuff. When i heard my own thoughts i would better understand why i wouldn't buy anything from that person. This allowed me to refine my message and focus the short time we were given.
Keep writing, refined BS is smoother than the raw material. Top Shelf BS doesn't cause hangovers.05/12/2017 #2 CityVP 🐝 ManjitWhat you are cooking is the development of a free spirit. How that free spirit shapes with your expression of time is what will emerge evoked by your expression in the buzz that you are a kid in a candy store here. It means that you are at home with the latent capability that resides within you and which is writ large in this buzz or at least I can see it painting within you. This is why the people who work with you want you to write this "shit" down - they are acknowledging your latent (unexpressed) capabilities.
You are not encumbered with definitions so this means that you are open to discovery to the callings whirling within you. That is not how most people think. This is not common sense but uncommon sense. That is the most fascinating thing about the cooking metaphor (and not just as profession) it is the expectation of surprise and delight rather than simply finding a recipe for success. In that regard I find great affinity in the way you think. That common sense is looking for those recipes of success does lead us back into a world of being defined or contentment with definition - so kudos to you not to be limited by what is defined.
- Producer01/12/2017Me Promote BeBee? I never considered myself to be a marketing person. That is until I joined BeBee. A few months after becoming a member, I was named as one of the ambassadors. Oh Boy! How am I going to promote BeBee? Frantically I thought back to what I remember...
Comments02/12/2017 #41 Gert Scholtz#37 @Joyce 🐝 Bowen Brand Ambassador @ beBee Your comment is so well worded, I wish to repeat it: "Many times things people share can cause one to scratch their heads with understanding. What has been experienced by one has been experienced by many. We weave our way through solutions, and many times those solutions can emerge through the similar experiences of others. " Thank you very much.02/12/2017 #37 Joyce 🐝 Bowen Brand Ambassador @ beBee"BeBee Producer posts are a treasure chest of personal information. Mine it. When you view someone’s blogs on their profile, their insight and a lot of who they are is reflected in their posts over time. A few minutes’ reading and one might well know more about the person than their next door neighbor."
You are welcome for the share, @Gert Scholtz. This post has valuable insights.
As for the quote, as I have intimated many times in my travels as a psychologist, we (I) are not unique. Many times things people share can cause one to scratch their heads with understanding. What has been experienced by one has been experienced by many. We weave our way through solutions, and many times those solutions can emerge through the similar experiences of others. We are, essentially, a team. My goal in many of my posts is to cause folks to know more about themselves.02/12/2017 #36 Savvy Raj@Gert Scholtz Great set of comments there that show how much this resonates with all the Bebee contributors. Totally enjoyed reading this buzz especially the way you have elementally said it all!
I truly agree that the @ Bebee platform is indeed a growing collection of valuable information on know-how, people and places. All thanks to all the wonderful people who believe in people to make this happen.02/12/2017 #35 Lada 🏡 PrkicDear Gert, although you said that promotion of any kind is far from your natural inclination, this post proves the opposite. :-) We, who love being on this platform, are all promotors of beBee in one way or another. You did a great job and still do, in promoting the people of this platform and platform itself. People always come first.

The beauty is not only in the correctness of what you wrote @Savvy Raj but also for the gratitude you show for others. I lived in the UAE and your descrilption of people of hearts is spot on. Congratulations for meeting with Fatima. I imagine her great personality.15/11/2017 #4 🐝 Fatima G.

But this meeting was so fulfilling and we both left satisfied lighting a candle to an everlasting friendship. Not sure if I felt like this about meeting another person in a very long time.
Your sincerity, kind heart, and your poetry have told us so much about you and meeting you in flesh have validated the same. Your gentleness, the pace at which you talk like me LOL, all these things were the instant glue to make us feel so comfortable. I will hold on to this golden memory as I know we shall meet again soon. Thank you for the generous words about me. I am blessed to know you all and learn from you each day! Thank you Savvy :)

Comments05/11/2017 #22 Proma 🐝 Nautiyal#12 I agree, @Harvey Lloyd. You are so right in saying that many I's are often perceived as E's. At heart, we all want our own peace while our minds buzz with curiosity which can be only satiated when we go out, talk and meet more people and listen to more ideas. It is always so good to hear your thoughts. Thank you!05/11/2017 #18 David B. GrinbergProma, what a tremendous tribute to beBee, for which I completely agree. The hive is a warm and comfortable place with boundless bees, buzz and honey. The hive is indeed a refreshing respite from today's frenetic world, both online and off.
Lastly, it's always a pleasure to recognize wonderful blogging buzz and contributions from buzzing bees like you and so many others. As my dear friend, @Milos Djukic, would say: "A great person deserves no less."05/11/2017 #16 Preston 🐝 Vander VenI think one reason people love this community is we are not at home. People have a hard time sharing in their homes. (Luke 4:24), "Then He added, 'Truly I tell you, no prophet is accepted in his hometown' ". For me, beBee feels like a "retreat with friends, a withdrawal to learn, and where I can help others." I don't have that at home.04/11/2017 #12 Harvey LloydThank you and I can say that we all learn from each other as we inquire about subjects, content and humanness
Yes I do find that on BeBee their many explorers, you mentioned a few. I get the world and it’s big E face. I believe though that many I’s exist but their exterior may be perceived as E.
Regardless of personalities exploring ourselves and others expands our views.
You are an explorer. What’s around the next corner is always exciting.

Comments29/10/2017 #32 Lada 🏡 Prkic#29 Good piece, John. It summed up why beBee is the best platform for bloggers but also for the rest of us who don't write very often. User satisfaction and engagement is much higher than on other platforms I've been or still am. Congrats to all team members who made it happen. :-)27/10/2017 #31 Dorothy CooperJohn, I was lamenting when a friend said she gained 800 new followers on a different platform. I am not sure how this converts to additional media but after reading this I felt better and I love blogging on this platform and I am emboldened by the comment I receive. Thank You! @Dorothy-Cooper24/10/2017 #28 David B. GrinbergThanks for another masterpiece, John. You present cogent points on what separates beBee from the proliferating pack of other digital publishing platforms. Put simply, beBee is better for bloggers to enhance engagement, boost readership, amplify their message and build their personal brand. User satisfaction and customer service are also higher than bigger social sites. Lastly, having the co-founder and President/CEO actively engaging with users is a special added bonus. Thanks for that @Javier 🐝 beBee! Better blogging is one of many reasons why the buzz is growing louder worldwide. Vamos! 🐝🐝✌️🌎🌍🌏24/10/2017 #27 Preston 🐝 Vander Ven@John White, MBA I agree with you 100%. As with other platforms, this tops them all. I may have enjoyed some of the features of my own blog I had before, yet it was difficult to bring loyal traffic. It is not like that here. I am currently slowly transferring many of my old articles from my blog and soon going to close it. There is no need to keep it open, when I have been traffic without even trying to market it.

Comments05/04/2017 #67 Tausif Mundrawala“Neurons that fire together, wire together”. What an excellent post on story writing have you penned my friend. I would like to thank @Don 🐝 Kerr for bringing it to everyone's attention. I am glad that I read this buzz otherwise I would have missed this masterpiece. People who read more novels become intelligent and mentally strong. I agree with you as I have been reading a lot since my early school days. My mom used to sometimes dissuade me to stop reading as she reminded me to be an interacting human on his earth. I used to be totally immersed in that huge tomes.
Thanks for sharing it with us, @Gert Scholtz05/04/2017 #61 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee"This is where story comes in. Stories invoke the brain to fill in gaps and to anticipate future outcomes; it ignites the brain’s pattern-making ability". Great thinking @Gert Scholtz. I love this buzz. I agree, and if we have no story to tell, we better keep silent.05/04/2017 #59 Robert CormackGood post, @Gert Scholtz. It's hard to imagine not having stories, but I wonder if it's chemical or just hard-wired in our thinking. Stories fill the slots in life that otherwise get left vacant. Just like cave art, we wonder how else artists could fill their days. I guess it's all relative. Someone has to do it. Thanks for posting.11/07/2016 #51 CityVP 🐝 ManjitConsidering what we owe the oral culture to transmit stories from one generation to another, otherwise so much history would have been loss.

You are one of only a handful on this platform whose posts I read without question as soon as I encounter then. This is because you reveal something interesting about yourself and/or your country with each one. After a year and a half I find that such openness and uniqueness has unfortunately become rare on beBee and there is too much repetitious noise. “I think of you favorably for what you have done". Good onya, mate.12/10/2017 #16 AnonymousCreo que lo principal para ser sincero ds pensar que la mentira ni ayuda ni lleva a ninguna parre. Mi hijo desde muy pequeño ha sido sincero conmigo, nunca ha inventado o contado mentiras y quizàs sea porque yo siempre insistí en que prefería una verdad que me molestara a una mentira que me hiciera desconfiar de él para siempre. Él nunca tuve miedo a contar la verdad porque siempre le hablé en un tono de diàlogo en el que no tiene por qué temer ser sincero. A día de hoy mi hijo es un adolescente en el que confio plenamente, me cuenta lo que hace y donde va cuando sale sin que yo le pregunte y cuando ha hecho algo mal también me lo cuenta y escucha mi opinión acerca de lo que pienso. Y si me enfado con él, pues no pasa nada, pero siempre con la verdad por delante, algo que siempre se ha mantenido en mi casa, eso y la confianza.

Comments24/03/2017 #53 Tausif MundrawalaI think the content of our buzzes matter more than anything else. Another factor would be the engagement of our fellow bees in the discussion which takes place with every buzz. Our presence here on this platform speaks volumes about us a person and how we respond. I agree with @Harvey Lloyd that people are genuine here. I really enjoy reading different buzzes on different topics to the extent that I have not completed my well thought buzzes.
I enjoy reading your buzzes but this one was special because the very first line resonates well with me. Thanks for sharing,@Aleta Curry. Congratulations for being a beBee brand ambassador.24/03/2017 #50 Gerald Hecht#46 @Aleta Curry yeah; I usually pretend to care after a "snort-while-laughing-thing"...unless It happens in front of someone that I don't really know yet (and they don't really know me yet) --in that case --I am genuinely embarrassed and ...umm...usually run away! lol24/03/2017 #45 Gerald HechtMysterious --yet who can deny it's tangibility?

I tend to use a few different platforms but I'm not an avid watcher of my 'stats'. I do love when people engage in conversation in the comments because to me it only enhances my writing and user experience. I've met many great people in the comments and have participated in some great discussions. And it's always exciting when something in the comments may be the catalyst for someone to write their first post. It's been a rewarding experience for me - both here and on the other platforms I use. Like @Franci🐝Eugenia Hoffman, beBee Brand Ambassador said "it's the camaraderie that's appealing." I couldn't agree more. Thanks for tagging me by the way!23/03/2017 #43 Harvey LloydI believe we all use social media for different reasons. From marketing to just plain ole writing. The one thing i have noticed with BeBee is that the writers in their own way take an interest in writing so that you can grow. Difficult to explain as it all comes in many forms, but you know it when it is missing.
I have experienced on other platforms the screaming like Madison Square Gardens on New year's Eve., to intellectual speak that is really of no consequence.
Bebee and the folks worldwide seem to be genuine in most cases. As to counts or relevants i sense they don't tell enough of the story.

Comments26/08/2017 #113 Javier 🐝 beBeeThe best way to build deeper business relationships is helping others. I know your probably thinking it’s easier to take care of yourself then worry about others. Simply help people, be human, engage one another and be real. We -as humans- are designed to want to communicate with one another need proof just take a look around watch a couple use sign language, laugh, have fun. The integration of your personal and business life can lead to new opportunities. We all can agree that business is about relationships.
This is what beBee is all about.14/02/2017 #110 Mohammed SultanbeBee is a disrupted model because its founded on a practical strategy founded on more than one-track mind and self- monitoring of their users aspirations.The platform created a high degree of change in the users day-to-day existence on social media networks and disrupted their established habits of clicking because they offer a free service that's not a commodity- like.10/11/2016 #107 Gerald Hecht#106 @Michele Williams yeah...well in high school we all had to learn https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Malthusian_growth_model ...and since it's probably pretty much the "facts of life"...I believe that you and @Irene Hackett are correct...the alternative is an all out Apocalyptic War until the end10/11/2016 #104 Michele WilliamsThis warrants rereading!

Confirmed my abiding belief that there are many more good, decent, and caring people in the world, than bad apples. Although I wouldn't necessarily extend that observation to the world of social media, where there is an awful lot of talking the talk, but as far as I can tell, precious little walking the walk.

No need to grow bigger at this stage of maturity, it has to be collaborative and business specific like personal branding for example, but we need tools to make deliverables to clients. That is to be money wise. Personal branding cannot remain an expensive hobby, it has to go PRO!23/08/2017 #27 David B. GrinbergLinkedIn or beBee is NOT an either/or proposition. It simply makes good sense to leverage new and emerging social platforms to reach new audiences, amplify your message and enhance engagement. Find out what all the buzz is about!
FYI - Shared on LinkedIn and pinned to my Twitter page for easy RTs https://twitter.com/DBGrinberg22/08/2017 #21 Preston 🐝 Vander VenThis is a great Buzz by @Javier 🐝 beBee. This is also why I feel when if anyone has a business or something that they want to brand, they should themselves as the brand image. When someone is going from platform to platform, and see your content, the prospect will get to know your face more and more and more.
For example, if I am browser a platform quickly at night, instead of looking for topics, I am looking for faces. I know that these people have great content on whichever platform I am on. I don't even bother reading the title, subject, or looking at the image of the article. I saw the author's face.
This is another reason to be careful what you share, what you comment, and so far. I may disagree with something in the world, but I don't always share everything in my heart to the world. A friend once told this, Before you take action in anything, are you doing it to make yourself "FEEL GOOD", or "DO GOOD".22/08/2017 #19 Franci🐝Eugenia Hoffman, beBee Brand AmbassadorLinkedIn and beBee - one works with the other!

There is a principle here that is evident in how you came to beBee. It is the wellspring of this coterie of minds. It is Trust. Each of us trusts the others to share our reality. Each of us trusts the others to hear us. Each of us trusts the others be in the moment with us. We share because we trust. I can't think of a better place to be.07/08/2017 #20 David B. GrinbergThanks for another good read, John. You make some excellent points as usual, as do the commenters below. I like to remind people that it took Thomas Edison hundreds of failed attempts before he finally got it right in his pursuit of inventing the light bulb. Yet he viewed each failed attempt at bringing him one step closer to reaching the goal. Persistence and perseverance are always key. I would also note that people tend to remember the successes and breakthroughs, rather than the many failures along the way. Thus, my advice -- like that of others -- is to view failure as a stepping stone toward success.07/08/2017 #18 Deb 🐝 HelfrichYou know, @John White, MBA, there are a lot of parallels between your personal story and the story of this platform (and lots of startups) most people and businesses only get known AFTER all the hard work and countless hours and hundreds of moments of finding it so hard, that quitting is top of mind.
As a society, as much as we might like meme's about enjoying the journey, we want our spoils immediately.
To get things right, to operate in the sweet spot of being true to ourselves or our business vision, we have to often toil for an indeterminate time believing in what will be, while we put in the effort and plain old hard work to create whatever needs to be created to get to our dream.
When it comes to a personal brand, creating a personal career, your example shines brightly, as it is in the writing and in having conversations with readers - so that our personality shines alongside the polished written product - that we attract opportunities we couldn't have applied to in a million ATS submissions.

GrinbergJust an FYI that to Google me correctly, one needs to use my full name in quotation marks, including my middle initial: "David B. Grinberg" -- that's because there are other people named "David Grinberg" out there who will also show up otherwise. That's why I use my middle initial to help me stand out from others with the same name. Others may want to do consider this as well.
That's why blogs I wrote years ago still appear in a Google search of my complete name -- including blogs posts on multiple platforms from 2012 onward. And yes, beBee shows up prominently on the first page of my search. So think about using your middle initial if you have a common name, or even an uncommon one like me, and don't want people to confuse you with someone else of the same name.
https://www.google.com/#q=%22David+B.+Grinberg%22&;*13/03/2017 #35 Francisco LopezIt would be better if the /#q= direct directly to the Google+ profile instead to the home page. Anyway is a good idea. Is time to take advantage of MS attempt to make LinkedIn better for the overall low bandwidth Indian Market and screwing their interface and adding half-backed features, instead of making a lite interface.

Watch out for one word that I have begun to see being used rather a lot, which is the word hyperbole or hyperbolic, somehow it is one of those words that is getting more airplay in the zeitgeist right now. Hyperbole means excess, overstatement, exaggeration, embellishment and fellow netizens may all becoming hyperbolic about hyperbole is kind of strangely ironic :-) I am sure someone famous must have said it or sung about it or filmed it but it is seems like the currency right now. Let's just hope it wasn't triggered by something Trump said or did for our obsession with Mr. T. is now definitely excessive.
- Producer04/02/2017Life Path ValueBuzz Submitted by : Fatima Williams Buzz: To New beBees Visiting beBee Land Fatima Williams provides a buzz as an introduction to beBee for new BeesWhat we say in innocence emerges with more truth...
Comments10/08/2017 #23 Cyndi wilkinsBe it career paths or 'life' paths the obstacle remains the same...Fear. Little word...HUGE ripple in that ocean of existence we speak so much about in terms of 'collective conscious'...The path to transformation is in overcoming our fears...these energies are all around us. Fear of failure, fear of loss, fear of retaliation should we speak the truth when we recognize injustices...fear of love...being vulnerable...learning to trust another with our heart is perhaps the most difficult challenge we face as humans...we fear being destroyed emotionally if we expose ourselves fully. However, that is the only path to transformation...and expressing the love that lies just beyond our deepest fears...
We must learn to express ourselves intelligently, with an approach of courage instead of fear...learn that wanting what you want is not enough when sharing a relationship...Be it intimate in nature or business as usual...You must share your common concerns as a 'partnership' and not be afraid to express your deepest individual concerns without the fear of upsetting the other...There must be a neutral ground of transference. Value the needs of your partner as much as you value your own needs and you will leave those energies of doubt and fear behind and rise into the higher frequencies of love and mutual regard...Something the world is in desperate need of these days.18/07/2017 #22 CityVP 🐝 Manjit#21 Trust me we all need a pinch, and sometimes we might even require a punch - though I am not offering that as an excuse for violence. It is how thoughts act as knives slicing through what is already beautiful about life and trying to show us our piece. Looking at just one piece of life can disturb our peace. Peace is a reminder that knives cannot cut our soul, but that we can ignore our soul by becoming beholden to our thoughts. We are taught to see the parts in the whole and not the whole in the parts.18/07/2017 #21 🐝 Fatima G. Williams#20 Thats is the biggest gratitude I hold right now. Thank ful that I have a life and thank you for never ceasing to enrich me, I am not yet sure if I cannot afford this MBA I will share my journey with you all soon. Thank you once again for making me pinch myself in acknowledging the gift of life.18/07/2017 #20 CityVP 🐝 Manjit#19 Dear @🐝 Fatima G. Williams
Lifetime learning, lifetime work, lifetime peace. Life is not something separate unless it is separated. Our mind carves thoughts.
Enjoy the heart that is not in peace and the peace that you find in your heart. Enjoy the relationships you make in doing your MBA, enjoy the lives that wrote the MBA books and the books you may write so others may enjoy them, enjoy the cup that is not full and the cup that is, enjoy the journey and enjoy the home, enjoy purpose and enjoy meaningless, enjoy driven and enjoy not so driven, but above all enjoy life because, for the biggest reason of all, you already have it.18/07/2017 #19 🐝 Fatima G. Williams#18 @CityVP 🐝 Manjit Your comment here could not have come at a more better time than now. I am on the path which I believe is to the life path that your talking about, the career path I've been now, doesn't seem to give me the fulfilment and satisfaction and peace in my heart. My cup is not full and I am not able to give. And I want to give, the MBA I choose to study is supposed to give me the clarity I'm looking for? Or will it not? I am yet to find out. I have seen what learning has done to me. I have seen what the career path has done to me and I cannot wait to be on this purpose driven journey I've undertaken. I am yet to find out!18/07/2017 #18 CityVP 🐝 ManjitThanks @🐝 Fatima G. Williams for reviving this buzz by placing it in the https://www.bebee.com/group/56487 Why beBee Hive. It is timely in terms of context for @Whitney Raver and including @Melissa Hefferman
This is a reminder about context. Whitney questioned the relationship of personality, reputation and brand. Life path value is not in the sum of these parts or these parts separated to further levels of definition. Career path is a great reminder of life as parts vs. when the whole is LIFE where brand is a myriad of things that simply fits into that whole.
Career path value is born of 20th Century perspective, but life path value is a birthright to 21st Century thinking. You may ask Fatima what is the significance of Life Path vs. Career Path and I will tell you in that regard that it is significant in difference as Peace is to War. In a world where we partition life and operate in three distinct segments EDUCATION - WORK - RETIREMENT we create agitation inside each division.
In a world where life is whole there is peace, until that is we are dragged into the daily life battle that defines millennials and boomers - for age is not a division, it is a wisdom. Today we have ageism because we have division. I want LIFE PATH. That is what I am pursuing here - and in this I find both humanity and peace. To choose career path value is to choose war.05/02/2017 #15 CityVP 🐝 Manjit#11 Dear Donna, that is also the best reason I have for thinking this, because having written it, it also requires my own consideration to think further. That is the best thing about learning, it is a small or grand as we choose it be, it can be in silence or in infinite loops. Thanks for your thoughts.05/02/2017 #14 CityVP 🐝 Manjit#12 Dear Fatima there should come a time in a human era in the future where making a difference is such a norm that it would be like telling people that we breath with lungs. Remember that voice is what emanates from within us that can make a difference, but we also have an inner voice and the difference it makes is entirely that which is within us - it is our own inner voice and that is the voice of the 21st Century.04/02/2017 #12 🐝 Fatima G. WilliamsQuote "How stupid is any ideology that gears everything for the middle part of life and has littler reverence for beginning or end. The Life Path is a 21st Century mind." #Truth Stupid indeed and the ideology still exists ! ! !
The life path epitomizes all the path we take and we have the power to inspire others to act. You are a living example - a symbolic expression of learning and I will join you and spread your voice along with my learning journey if I humbly may , As the voice of this century as well to the people I can make a difference to. To the few friends of the 500plus I have who read an interesting buzz or quote or comment when I share on fb/insta etc and most importantly to the immediate people around me.
Excellent message from the star fish story ' The understanding that we hold in our hands the power to change a life, a mind, or a circumstance today – right now – is a powerful insight and motivator"04/02/2017 #8 CityVP 🐝 Manjit#5 Dear @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee you are the embodiment of life path value and that is why I honour you and why others who come across your mind revere you. When we subscribe to old thinking we are old, when we subscribe to life - we are thinkers who are incredibly alive. The life path can become the inconvenient truth where fear tells us love is not what we bring to work, but only as a brand.04/02/2017 #7 CityVP 🐝 Manjit#4 Fatima, the career path is the default setting and the industrial age is the ecosystem. Th Life Path is the path of the individual, the Career Path is the path of the group. The group has had revolution after revolution after revolution only to emerge as a group again. Even hedonism and individualism is a group mindset. The Life Path is the same story as the often told story of the "Star Fish" https://www.cityyear.org/about-us/culture-values/founding-stories/starfish-story
Like it or not, I am the voice of the 21st Century - because it is the one voice that is largely unheard - the voice of our own heart and the humanity that cultivates totally within us and if that humanity is born within the 21st Century voice is simply us hearing ourselves, perhaps for some for the first time and that is a really difficult thing for people educated to live life on the education-career-retirement conveyor belt.
Personal brand becomes an empty vessel when we live on that industrial age conveyor belt and I know that to be true because as I have expressed before, personal brand is something we take off with our work cloth when we arrive home - and it does not deal with that which is empty inside of us - it simply is a survival reaction due to the framing of the career path as a central focal point.
I also know it because people are in tears when they tell me their personal stories - and how can people who empty vessels called career professionals even begin to arrive at this point - because if they did, it would show the pandora's box personal brand often hides. How stupid is any ideology that gears everything for the middle part of life and has littler reverence for beginning or end. The Life Path is a 21st Century mind. Branding is a great form of learning but in the context of the Life Path not as core Career.04/02/2017 #6 CityVP 🐝 Manjit#1 My family is not going to like this one bit, not at all, but I am going to watch "The Century of the Self" this afternoon, but this time on our home theater screen (which is normally deployed on Friday and Saturday evenings - right now I have to set up an early warning system that between 2pm and 6pm I will sequestrating an afternoon show, and while this will not be "Occupy Wall Street", today will definitely be "Occupy Home".
Our home theater is in the largest room of the house which is best described as a party room or great hall - and it forms a center of our home - so when I say occupy, I really do mean "occupy" :-) For my family, what I want to watch is usually considered as equivalent of Edvard Munch's "Scream" - the last time they collectively had that look was when I emptied the room watching a movie that I personally found inspiring called "Miindwalk" - that was the evening I convinced our kids to watch it.
15 minutes in those brave souls were asleep and eventually the room emptied. I was given a gentle rebuke that weekend that Mindwalk is not considered "family time" :-) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uec1CX-6A38 Apparently series like "The Walking Dead" are considered essential elements to "family time" - a series the family watched on the big screen - except me.04/02/2017 #5 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBeeWhat a great buzz dear @CityVP 🐝 Manjit and tribute to a great thinker dear@🐝 Fatima G. Williams. The sseds of ideas resulted in such a great buzzz and this one is exemplary of what true ideas-pollination mean.
"What we say in innocence emerges with more truth than what we say with design
for the simple reason that the pure can feel more than those whose life experiences have either toughened or hardened their hearts
"In giving we receive, in receiving we learn, in learning we grow".
We are told to expect 10 to 15 jobs in our life and to be prepared to adapt to constantly changing market conditions. Yet we hang onto the idea of the "career path"
Great thinking, great ideas, eye-opening to contradictions in our lives and the need to change to a growth model that starts with giving to end up in learning. Sharing proudly04/02/2017 #4 🐝 Fatima G. WilliamsI'm ecstatic to read this brilliant buzz . As I say many times with you my learning journey only begins. It makes me think like I haven't in the last 20 years of my life. Thank you for all the learning contributions you provide to the world.
I've read the buzz half way through and at the documentary part now. I couldn't agree less about what challenges there are when it comes to obedience/conformist and creativity/free-thinking as contradictions. I can only imagine if I HAD found a medium like beBee to express and learn while I was in school. I'd be a different person now in terms of the knowledge and ideas I would have gained. I don't think I learnt much from school other than the fact I was supposed to get good grades , be obedient , not talk in class and not be fun loving.
I was an outstanding girl in class every-time I asked Whynot my teacher would get annoyed and say" Out you go ( LOL) ". I Now see all the toppers students during my school who worked too much to get those grades - Where are they now ? Just an ordinary person why didn't they put all that smartness to use ??
But honestly that's what classes do they kill the creativity and create a conformist.
My learning journey in Life started when I was 16 and started doing part time jobs. Learnt about people, greed, money , love and it's role in people's lives
I am so glad the current generation has access to the things I never had as a child. Thank you @CityVP 🐝 Manjit for such an illuminating buzz

Comments26/09/2016 #59 Praveen Raj GullepalliAwesome how beBee allows one to build a personal brand Jim! So much freedom without censor and more importantly so much ready opportunity for organic growth! And thanks for continuing to demystify beBee land for all as always. You, Phil, Pablo, Pamela, Aura...are literal custodians of the "What and How to" of beBee!26/09/2016 #58 Rose Spot#55 Thanks Javier, @Jim Murray sent me some yesterday, I will post on my site...Love bees too, by the way when I was a child I saved them when they were in the pool going "Red bees cross" coming...Until now I was never bited...I know they tell their bees children...(Just kidding), in serious I think I was never bited because I am very calm when I see some...25/09/2016 #56 Federico 🐝 Álvarez San Martín#50 #55 #52 Here it's https://commons.m.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?search=bebee24/09/2016 #44 Wayne YoshidaFrom @Jim Murray - This is very similar to what I tell people about beBee. It is different in a refreshing way. Let's continue to make it uniquely beBee, and not drag in the baggage from the "other" social platforms. Or, perhaps take the best from the others over there and bring them over here, leaving the bad stuff behind.

Comments24/07/2017 #35 Deb🐝 Lange, Brand Ambassador @beBeeyes @CityVP 🐝 Manjit every human has the potential for trust, freedom and autonomy within their own system. And every human has the potential for fear, greed, control. We need to be careful of what seeds we are sowing. And we also need to be careful of whom we work, and play with and who we elect.23/07/2017 #34 CityVP 🐝 Manjit#33 Our immune system is our intelligence and even a stray immune system is a danger to the body, and if we have a healthy immune system, our focus can be directed at what is making the organization come alive. It is not what people need but what is flourishing within our own being, for if trust, freedom and autonomy is not flowing in our own veins, then what is it that we are attracting? That is the magnetic flow in our own blood stream.
A magnet for magnificent minds is neither predicated on the Law of Attraction or the Invisible Hand. It is a most visible means of learning to see - because if we not seeing it, feeling it, tasting it then it is conceptual as what being lucky means. We do need luck that we attract beings create the diversity needed for a living organization but much is also that which flows in us and that is the hardest part of defining the word leadership. For a magnet attraction is the norm but magnificent minds is the most magnetic of challenges. A living organization attracts a magnificent mind, a dead organization repels that same mind.23/07/2017 #33 Deb🐝 Lange, Brand Ambassador @beBeeI totally agree @CityVP 🐝 Manjit with so mahy of your comments. An organistaion is a living entity, but, many want to kill it off by making things solid like concrete, and suck the life out of people. All the systems of control of people suck away their life, their energy , their creativity. And then when they are disengaged "fixes" are generated. But the fix does not work as the problem is inherently in the systems of control. People need to have the trust, freedom and autonomy to work and achieve the purpose of the organization.09/07/2017 #32 CityVP 🐝 Manjit#31 The emergence here does depend on the expressions of individual people that flourish to create new context. We do not know how or when that context takes upon a life of its own but it requires humility. Sometimes we enforce control and unwittingly serve controllers, then that which will emerge will not be worth talking about - eventually what emerges can be the metaphorical equivalent of "living water" or the abject and physical equivalent of pond-scum.
The compass then indeed has a True North pointing towards humanity, because if the singularity happened and artificial intelligence could decide upon truth, this artificial intelligence will not see human beings as humanity but much like human beings view a virus. We have so far not reached out and touched the humanity of own human singularity and we are already contemplating what is transhuman and beyond - emergence will either be an emergency as in the creation of new crisis or emergent form of humanity, even one born from the space of chaos.
Perhaps Sara you will take pause to know that a scholar who took on the purpose of trying to figure out the human condition, was so vilified he had to endure defamation suits and legal battles that would have withered a lesser being. The comments on Goodreads will show how much opinion swings on a subject like the "human condition" http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/27305883-freedom - so we are far removed from a societal awareness that is based on humanity.09/07/2017 #31 Sara Jacobovici#22 Well said @CityVP 🐝 Manjit! Thank you for your kind words Manjit. I just finished writing in another comment of how glad I am that you are part of my journey. Three thoughts to highlight: 1. "...truth expressed with humanity." What an eye opener for me! I often take it for granted that truth is just truth, as in the sense of "with a capital T." I have never really been conscious of the fact that attaining truth is not the end goal, it's how to express that truth. And here you say, "with humanity". No wonder we can look at something as being true but if it is not expressed with humanity, we can't experience its essence or "know" that truth. 2. "...those behind the scenes who can transform today's visibility into tomorrows vision." It's like the Mozart quote, 'The music is not in the notes, but in the silence between.' Agreed, our vision can be realized only through the support and connection with those whose contributions are not visible. 3. "Why would I spend my minutes here at beBee unless i truly believed within that a greater vision is in the cusp of evolving - but it will emerge and like all great emergence, it will self-organize into something far greater than we realize." I share in that belief. Thanks for everything Manjit.07/07/2017 #25 CityVP 🐝 Manjit#19 Dear @David B. Grinberg the atoms of talent are everywhere, what I honour with this buzz is possibility. That possibility is transcribed in my comments #16 and #20 - and yet alone I am powerless, together however it is about awakening to possibility rather dream what it is we dream. Learning to see is accompanied by massive core of humility, I am not placing my hands on how emergence designs or how life self-organizes, but I have taken a psychic snapshot of what is or was alive in the moment I took it. That appreciation is what gives this particular magnetic field its strength - a magnet can also attract mediocre minds, the appreciation is in the title of the buzz - which is "MAGNIFICENT MINDS". I count in that example of magnificent minds people like @Dean Owen also - but remember this is TOTALLY at the level of APPRECIATION - for I don't want to place my hands on this and direct it because that form of control switches the magnet back from magnificent minds to the everyday reality of mediocre. At least in my lifetime I could say that I crossed the path of shooting star of possibility, but I don't control that star.07/07/2017 #23 CityVP 🐝 Manjit#20 We are not to know why the Earth is in its position or why the moon in its position but we do know that myriad placements that came into being created the recipe for life and that includes the tilt of the Earth and a myriad other things like the response of a bacteria. So the magnet is as big as the magnetic field that protects us from the Sun but at the local level it is a product of how evolution works. Not at the simplistic level of survival of the fittest but at the beautiful level of what Stewart Brand once said
"ORDER IS FOR FREE" is a quote from Stewart Brand
This much I know, life hands the big idea to a few people and then that idea becomes a magnet for magnificent minds, but the greatest failure is in the hands of people who blow this opportunity, and then life WAITS and the opportunity flows to the next seed of evolution - and what this buzz pays homage to is that at the time of writing it, the poles of this magnet have not changed. The seeds of the new do emerge from the ashes of the old and history is rife with people who did not see what they had and then settled for the lesser dream - for imagine being at Shockley Semiconductors are seeing an owner that missed the dream and settled for less - such a story is exemplified by the "Traitorous Eight"
THE TRAITOROUS EIGHT
Where there is foolishness, history repeats itself - where there is legend, history is made.
Either way I am merely appreciating proof of a magnet in the picture I see above - that picture can one day could serve as an inspiration to many or a warning to a few. It is the few that will always be handed the opportunity to transform ways of being.07/07/2017 #22 CityVP 🐝 Manjit#16 What happens @Sara Jacobovici when a magnet draws in magnificent minds? The watermark is raised, we are then no longer swimming in a pool of low capability or an exclusive walled garden, especially when great organizations can only be great with great minds.
More than sharing this space with a great mind like you, a part of greatness is bringing into focus the great minds that we do not see, the one's that work in the background and whose work we only notice when things do not work or we demand something to be better.
Traditionally technologists and creatives have had a confrontational view of the "suits", unless we who benefit from their work note that our allegiance and respect includes them. These are the kind of people pictured above in the beBee office. There is no such thing in my world as a labour of love, there is only depth of appreciation, as we learn together how to live in an appreciative world - where appreciation is not a euphemism for positive thinking or slogans, but truth expressed with humanity.
This is the world that creative and technologically gifted people operate in and so this appreciation is widened and made inclusive, not just for the people who are visible here but those behind the scenes who can transform today's visibility into tomorrows vision. Why would I spend my minutes here at beBee unless i truly believed within that a greater vision is in the cusp of evolving - but it will emerge and like all great emergence, it will self-organize into something far greater than we realize.07/07/2017 #20 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBeeDear @CityVP 🐝 Manjit- you remind me of a buzz that I wrote on beBee almost year ago and titled "Finding the Needle of the Compass". If the needle of the compass is lost or made too heavy to show the direction then the compass shall fail to show the north direction.
I wonder if the magnets in our heads ar different ?
The magnets in our minds and the magnets in our senses. I concluded my buzz by saying "These findings are again consistent with the idea that we need magnetized senses to stay on our direction.
We know that your vision lays out a destination; your destination guides your strategy; and strategy chooses action. We need magnetized eyes and noses and all our senses to identify our direction and stay faithful to it"
How about the magnets in our guts?
So much to think about.07/07/2017 #19 David B. GrinbergManjit, I echo your appreciation of all the amazing talent at beBee. It takes a collective of worker bees to build the hive. Success is a team effort for an organization. No one does it alone, not the CEO or the factory floor worker. Thanks, as always, for sharing your important insights and astute analysis, from which we can all benefit. Very inspiring and meaningful. Keep buzzing!07/07/2017 #16 Sara JacoboviciIn addition to what you have written @CityVP 🐝 Manjit, I am grateful that beBee has attracted you to this site and I get to meet, connect, learn from and engage with a person and mind such as yours. I rarely have regrets, but one is that I can not keep up with your posts. Thank goodness you are prolific. You write, "(... let us say it is my personal compass) where I want to be associated or linked or a part of organizations that is a magnet for magnificent minds." A trustworthy compass indeed." I appreciated all the metaphors and resources to books Manjit, that clearly communicate that @Javier 🐝 beBee, @Juan Imaz, and all the members of the beBee team are the REAL thing and bring life to the world of social media. You write, "Life is not a slogan or a marketing strategy it is a being."

All the points you made above are extremely truthful. I met others on Linkedin, I got to know many of those people on a different level on beBee- new friends who I know I could reach out to at any time if needed. I'd like to add, that you are correct about the other networks complimenting each other.

The buzz is growing louder!13/06/2017 #23 Simone Luise Hardthi Javier :) I really dislike those "artificial algorithms" ;) but I also know that without "them" your timeline (at which platform ever) will surely overload ;) the more followers/contacts/friends you get...... so I´ve got to accept this as a "necessity" ;) (I´ve got approx. 6000 people all over the world connected to me ;) Have a lovely day & evening today :) but it´s also true that beBee is a great platform too ;)13/06/2017 #22 CityVP 🐝 ManjitThe great thing about this buzz is that it puts personal branding in context with a greater whole, and so I don't read this buzz as marketing but as a manifesto for personal and professional value, and I am into maximizing meaning and making mantra - for modern marketing is for the heartless, and in this regard more heart beats are better than less - otherwise less will always be better than more because I have not met a person who has passion who did not exhibit a strong and authentic beating heart.
That is also the kind of leader I am shaping myself to be - and so I welcome this buzz as a manifesto of personal and professional value. I welcome the meaning in this and the making of a new mantra that transcends those that continue to focus on that 20th Century invention called marketing, dinosaurs who think they are relevant to the our century, a special interest group who continue to talk to us in marketing gibberish rather than as the best representatives of the human voice.
The best news of all the good Lord made it so that America is now being led by a personal branding marketer and so how is that currently working out for America? The 20th Century should not have been allowed to trump and spill its poor thinking into the first 20 years of our 21st Century, but it has. There is always hope that those that want the 21st Century will finally get a chance to live in a new renaissance age - less we listen to the message of tribal people, who keep beating their drums from the village and professional tribes they congregate in.
