The Trust Capital

The Trust Capital

It is amazing how small thoughts can divert our attention to new interests, excitement and destiny. This is the amazing story behind writing this buzz. While searching for the term marketing and complexity googled also suggested marketing and complexity theory. I decided to search both. The first term generated more than 80 million citations and the second term produced slightly less than 28 million citations. Both searches were completed in less than 390 seconds.

The numbers invoked so many ideas in my mind. First, that changing the search slightly led to such huge differences in the output. Adding one word (theory) to the search reduced the output by almost 52 million citations. This is a great manifestation of the butterfly effect in which a small change may greatly impact the output.

The second thought that crossed my mind is the minute time required to produce millions of citations. The death of time and the exponential growth of information. So little time to produce overwhelming information and I feel sinking in its ocean (whether blue or red).

Our world is governed by small changes that may produce unpredictable results. Unpredictable results mean living in a new climate with new challenges, threats and opportunities and the need to self-organize to cope and meet these emerging and never-planned challenges. No matter how careful we are in planning an emergent phenomenon may drift our lives to new oceans. Because of these challenges the development of new technologies were initiated and resulted in novel approaches such as visual presentations, text mining and data mining. New and pressing challenges make the antifragile companies more successful, but mostly lead to the “breaking of the bones” of the fragile ones.

New challenges make planning progressively like a mirage in a desert. We lost control on customers because of the free interconnections among them. The customers are having more power together than mega companies because of the feedback effect they exert. A “little” customer may publish a complaining tweet on Twitter and through feedback this complaint might grow like a termite hill built by millions of termites. The “Complaint Hill” may be built likewise by instant feedback and retweet to bring down the “house of the big corporation” who caused the complaint. Customers trust customers and empathize with their complaints that build up fast and do what was impossible years back.

Trust is a big connector is more important than the financial capital. Do we need to modify the balance sheet of companies to incorporate their “Trust Capital”? My answer is most probably yes. What is the value of a huge capital that produces great and saleable products if the customer isn’t satisfied at the end of the day. All it takes for that customer is to write an emotional complaint for few influencers to republish it. There are no barriers to making complaints. Instead of handling major issues the corporations have so many fires to extinguish that were caused by one match. Yes, the burning of the fires of the big is easier than anytime before.

I was doing my search to complete my slides for the workshop I am addressing in Istanbul next week. How I got distracted by a thought that took me on the emergent writing path. Indirect distractions are the theme of our world today.

I have to say wholeheartedly I believe Oniha is a gifted individual and gentle in his second nature. I have received the most rewarding and spiritual experience whilst conversing with him on the telephone. I heard and saw an angel in my mind-eye it was so overwhelming. I knew at the moment finally my difficulties were over. He deserves recognition for his power and talents as a beautiful individual who brings spirit close to those in need. I have been touched deeply,nothing has come as close to me before. I am in total awe and have a great deal of respect. Thank you Dr Oniha for reuniting me with my estranged husband. Anyone who needs relationship help should contact this man and he will help you. EMAIL: ONIHASPELLTEMPLE@GMAIL.COMWHATSAPP: +16692213962

I find that many of @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee posts attract many sharp minds to the comment section. This post however really attracted a deep process of understanding the broader implications of trust and managing chaos. Take a look and add to the bottom line of a brilianant buzz.

#123 You have brought to my memory an interview I had with @Deb🐝 Lange, Brand Ambassador @beBee not too long ago about releasing ourselves from our 'inner demons' and how holding on to our anger creates these mental prisons from which there is no escape...other than to recognize and 'feel' the chaos our emotions create, have our experience...and then let them go...

#122 You brought to thought the story line of many prisons, and not just the physical ones. Its been about 15 years sense i was released from the mental material prison of my own mind.

The release was very surreal at first because i had never operated in this new found landscape. The first realization was how stupid i was within it, and the recognistion of those i had assembles as friends were oblivious. I was now standing firmly within chaos.

Scary, yes, exciting, yes but realizeing that my education and narritive did not prepare me for this adventure would be an understatement. But with thought, reading and deep research the chaos gave way to order. I realized that the chaos was merely a blanket over the lamp that provided the light or order in this context.

We should excerise caution as we exit the mental prison of singularity. But the adventure is well worth the disorder that shows itself prior to order.

Mind your instinct and bite only that what you can digest as you enter the unknown but for your own adventure, GO.
