    I 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.

    Thatā€™s very well expressed, @Harvey Lloyd, and Iā€™m hearing it echoed by others as well. What Iā€™m being given to understand is that one would do well to take notice of the statistics but with caution, theyā€™re part of the story, not the whole tale.

    #41 I most certainly agree, @FrancišŸEugenia Hoffman, beBee Brand Ambassador and you and @Ken are right, it's not all about the stats. But they are one more yardstick in the arsenal of anyone trying to figure out a marketing approach, whether to business or writing.

    Mysterious --yet who can deny it's tangibility?

    There is no yardstick --no altimeter to inform/quantify the distance twixt engagement's eternal meaning ....resonating, quivering subjective sensations
    and...

    ... the sea level atmospheric pressure at some blindfolded choice...
    ...of Cartesian abscissa/ordinate intersection...
    ...what Euclidean plane can explain...
    ...the shrinking distance between the crow's nest of the mast...
    ...and the sea (as she sails away) from one's heart...
    ...or the inverse --quite inseparable from her shivering return?

    Interesting stats @Aleta Curry. 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 @FrancišŸ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!
    Harvey Lloyd
    23/03/2017 #43 Harvey Lloyd
    I 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.

    Thanks for the tag

    #38 That's wonderful, @Jacqueline Randall

    I'm guessing growth is good, but I'm not sure it'll be anything like the way it was in Spain per capita, but I'd love it if we saw that kind of astronomical growth in the USA. Well, I wouldn''t *totally* love it, because items flow by in my stream quite quickly enough now, but it would be thrilling.

    Still, I saw in an article somewhere where beBee was predicted to be the next unicorn startup, so either somebody knows something, or somebody's being terribly optimistic.

    How about it, @Matt šŸ Sweetwood? Can we have some stats on how beBee is doing in the USA?

    @Aleta Curry I'm not sure how beBee's growth is doing here in the US, but I can say I am telling people about it every chance I get! I am happy to have found you all and encouraged to think more out-of-the-box! Truly.

    The best way to build deeper business relationships is helping others. I know your probably thinking itā€™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.

    beBee 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.

    #98 @Gerald Hecht - having been through a couple of direct hits over the years here in South Florida, I can only say how surprised I was at how of the best in people it brought out. 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. Keep the faith, Gerry, and be safe. Cheers!

    "This is where story comes in. Stories invoke the brain to fill in gaps and to anticipate future outcomes; it ignites the brainā€™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.

    Good 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.

    @Gert Scholtz , the way this piece ends...struck me for some reason: "Donald Hebb coined the well-known phrase: ā€œNeurons that fire together, wire togetherā€.
    Nowhere is this more true than in story."

    @Gert Scholtz yes in real life we are locked in our own brain with individual differences giving the appearance of a tremendously varying window of empathy (the widest of which is still EXTREMELY limited even in the most rockin shaman)...
    ...but in stories we, through the construct itself, ARE in the heads of everyone in the story...

    There is no reason to fear or hate LinkedIn, it's the biggest candidates database tool in the world, with 11 minutes daily time use per user in average and only 90 or 110 million monthly active users over 430 M+, with recruiting tools for HR professional and raw material targets for lead generator in sales, what a better free tool and per subscription platform for B2B? Now, what does the future of social networks keeps ahead of us, who knows? In the mean time use all the tools at your disposal, and follow closely the evolution of beBee that @Javier šŸ beBee 's team will release this Autumn!
    We all have high expectations! So we will wait patiently.
    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!

    This is a great Buzz by @Javier šŸ 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".

    Nothing appears to happen for 5 years.

    However, beneath the surface, strong roots are developing and growing.

    The fifth year arrives.

    And then...

    John, Well told. Point taken. 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.

    Thanks 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.

    You 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.

    Just 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.

    Welcome the honey Debasish ! 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.

    Be 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.

    #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.

    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.

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.

    Thanks @šŸ 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.

    Quote "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.

    #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.

    #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.

    What a great buzz dear @CityVP šŸ Manjit and tribute to a great thinker dear@šŸ 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 proudly

    I'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 šŸ Manjit for such an illuminating buzz

    #20 and yes , in my case it applies to bebee. I have been using Linkedin for a long time. Maybe its the timing, maybe it is people , maybe both of them cover up for systemic lapses, but it works.
    I say maybe because i need to be conclusive about it. That comes with awareness, from reading stuff , including yours.
    Devesh šŸ Bhatt
    01/04/2017 #21 Devesh šŸ Bhatt
    #20 a) i am marketing

    b) i have expressed a personal experience.

    c) i do have problems, i did not appreciate the initial responses when i publicly voiced them in comments and the delay in resolving them despite my persistence but yes a critical issue has been resolved. Enough for me to be patient, focus on the positives for now.

    d)The more to life part needs understanding for which my point of references are bebee and linkedin, although i figure there are many many players but it will take study . For now the benefits got me out of a hole and it is a good thing.

    The best way to build deeper business relationships is helping others. I know your probably thinking itā€™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.

It's has become such an unfriendly (and as you say; "insincere") site that I can't stand being there. I occassionally share other's posts there but only through the beBee link. I love being on beBee and though my job has kept me away a lot lately when I get to rejoin the hive I just enjoy it and all the wonderful people I've met here. I just feel 'safe' on beBee, knowing that @Javier šŸ beBee, @Juan Imaz and their wonderful team are keeping a close eye on the site holding it to a higher standard.

    yes @CityVP šŸ 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.

    #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.

    I totally agree @CityVP šŸ 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.

    #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.

    #22 Well said @CityVP šŸ 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.

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.

    #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
    https://www.theguardian.com/books/2013/may/05/stewart-brand-whole-earth-catalog

    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
    http://www.siliconvalleywatcher.com/mt/archives/2011/05/how_the_traitor.php

    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.

    #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.

    Dear @CityVP šŸ 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.
    https://www.bebee.com/producer/@ali-anani/finding-the-needle-of-the-compass
    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.

    The best way to build deeper business relationships is helping others. I know your probably thinking itā€™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.

    The 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.

    I love Saint Francis of Assisi. I used to be inspired by him when I was young and still am, as I can see I am trying to live up to those words ""For it is in giving that we receive."

    Truth fluctuates everywhere we find it. So we must look beyond the information to the agenda, there is always an agenda. The agenda is tied to a belief system. Belief systems are filters. The purity of truth never survives these filters. Truth is the core of reality. As information, it has the most potential and the most symmetry. Self organization occurs at the boundaries of chaotic systems. The outer boundary has the most variation or degrees of freedom, and the least significance, in terms of meaning.

    Information is a difference that makes a difference. Understanding is life, islands of order in a sea of chaos. Perception creates division. The engine is imagination and the fuel is novelty. Innocence is unfiltered perception. We live in the shadows of perception where all belief systems are filters. Meaning is created through this process. In order to create meaning something must be consumed. Light pierces the darkness and is consumed, truth pierces the chaos and is consumed. The universe behaves more like a song than an equation. How can location exist in a song? We can give behaviors location, beyond that we cannot say.

    @Lyon Brave Thanks for an awesome mention of my passionate work and myself. I believe we are all connected to each other through the vast universe. It is true there is a reason for everything and sometimes the most hopeful beings realize that chance encounters have purpose if we are willing to take a little time to discover it. I love that you shared the "trail" that lead to us and to you being inspired through my work to take the opportunity to make a film with your smartphone. I am inspired by your words and am hopeful that you will make a film which we can include in our global film festival next year and that through the red carpet we can both meet in person as you connect to a global community of mobile filmmakers who may even be friends you have not yet met. I can't wait to meet you and see your film! beBee is awesome...and so are you! If the beBees on this platform would not be wonderful then beBee would not be wonderful and wonderful beBees are attracted to a wonderful platform. It's the "circle of awesome" that is making beBee the best place to bee in the world of online and offline communities!

    This buzz is so pricelessly you, @Lyon Brave! I honestly got teary-eyed over these few lines:

    " It helps me to see I don't have to be a product of my environment. I can be a product of my future. In my future, I am a success story. I overcame all obstacles."

    This realization is the foundation of all sorts of miraculous opportunities.

    Stepping out of our past, the habits of mind it created, is both a continuing process and a single, momentous occurrence that can delineate the past BC/AD style.

    I sincerely have a feeling of deja vu when I think of saying sometime soon, I knew her when.....

    Just keep stepping forward, offering value, demonstrating what you can do.

    Followers based used to be the reference and still is on twitter who becomes more and more technologically obsolete like LinkedIn already is, and keep heading down. FaceBook is different and will replace LI in time when its Professional versioning will occur and be branded that way. The dramatic results come from the hidden network, the 3rd degree potential connections. They are your true loyal audience, people that do not know you. IReceive 10k emails per day from direct approach on hotmail, 5k on 4 gmail segemented accounts, i funnel them and send back a automated marketing response through a workflow of actions based on the mecanism IF This Happens Then Do That, depending of the peaks of activities it varies between 115k automation to 19 millions per day.
