Culture IS Strategy

Culture IS Strategy


Culture is just behaviour. Effect is just a result of behaviour. Are you focused on your own behaviour and that of those around you? without this it doesnt matter what your powerpoint slides say your people "should" do in a fancy greatlooking strategy document.
What does Resilience mean to you? What does it enable?
Are you doing the work that matters? Or are you just doing hard work because you "hope" if its hard, it should be rewarded?
Just some food for thought on the URGENT need for you to think about restorability so backups don’t get in the way of your relationships. * Divorce and family photos? * Employee and boss asks for phone back? * Programmer backup = 100x speed and trust Trust? Are your provider doing analytics on your backups?
Who controls the data for your emotional choices? Know thyself is more urgent than ever! We’re all emotional creatures – a great important part of our evolution. It’s important to know that you’re now surrounded by algorithms watching you and tweaking the environment around you constantly. For both great and scary effects. That’s why it’s more important than ever to know thyself, to understand what makes you tick so you’ll recognize what’s going on. Say when you think you’re reading news and in effect, you’re being manipulated to make a certain decision.   Why fascism is so tempting — and how your data could power it  Yuval Noah Harari | TED2018 Facebook's role in Brexit — and the threat to democracy |Carole Cadwalladr | TED2019
This is Marketing worth the listen or read from so many angles This episode is a tribute to Seth Godin, and a recommendation of his book This Is Marketing: You Can't Be Seen Until You Learn to See IF you only read one book this year I recommend you make it this one before others. It applies to so much beyond marketing. Ric share’s some of his thoughts on Seth Quotes My product is for people who believe ... I will focus on people who want... I promise that engaging with what I make will help you get...   You’re listening to episode 365 of this podcast, and I’ve shipped it weekly for 5 years to get to this point in time. I surely was a slow learner facing so many resistances getting here. I still struggle with some of them and most likely will find new resistances as I keep leveling up. Without Seth and all I’ve learned from Seth over the years about [daring] to dance with tension and [daring] to do the work that matter this podcast wouldn’t exist. Seth is the number ONE reason I’m doing this for you and everyone else listening to this. Thank you Seth! This Is Marketing: You Can't Be Seen Until You Learn to See IF you’re curious I recommend you get the audio version because Seth is taking time to read it himself
Brand, Reputation and DOING the work that matters. I know I here talk about how important DOING things is – to get real life feedback, to connect, to learn. Getting our ideas out of our heads to meet the world so we connect with our community, so we show up for those we seek to help. But it’s even more important to embrace that it’s not enough to just do better work. We must all of us also embrace branding, reputation and all the work that makes OUR work matter, be noticed and feel relevant for those we want to help. With all the noise in our world just being the best, or having shipped the best product is not enough. We must all work on our brand. That the result of that work is NOT up to us. Branding in today’s connected world: For both global around the world brands, as well as your personal brand is: Other people's expectation of you. The promise you deliver to them. THAT is your brand. its easy to live in the illusion that they'll get it eventually, if we just do good work. That they will come if we just build "the right " but it’s not enough. My experience is that in order for your people to get the maximum value out of your product or “value” They must get the reputation your brand bring with it from others, not directly from you. The noise blocks out who's the best. Seek to be the best for those you serve including do work on marketing, branding, reputation in a way that matter to them. Don’t seek to gamify what ‘ever platform you're on. Eventually algorithms will learn and you're community as well. You don’t want to be left obsolete just because an algorithm was updated. quote: Warren Buffet It takes 20 years to build a reputation and five minutes to ruin it. If you think about that, you'll do things differently What’s your legacy? What are you building for those you serve beyond you? What is the promise you bring those that connect with what you do?
Go around it

Go around it


Go around it. Dont wait for perfect - Its OK to go around the long way as long as you keep taking steps forward   Be kind to yourself. Dont wait for the perfect candidate, perfect opportunity or perfect idea.   Once you go around and obsticle and you make them pointless they're often happy to help you - making it appear you've walked in a straighter line that you have for an outsiders. dont compare yourself to others because you dont know the detours they have made to get it done. Focus on progress, and what's working and what is. not others and how you think it "should be" Primilary ask yourself what can you DO, instead of listening to the sceptics in your head? dont worry about what others think or say if you're not starting by enrolling the top candidate. Few succesful people did when they started. We just fool ourselves by comparing thinking everyone else had it easier to change things that we do. Usually they did not but invested effort anyone eventually making it.
Laser Focus

Laser Focus


Laser Focus What are you focusing on right now? So many of us imagine success as “having it all.” While that may be true, the way to get there requires focus; giving up a lot of things, disappearing from the spotlight, and building that one thing that will be your contribution to the world--your legacy. The first step to achieving something is figuring out what you want in the first place. And the more you think about it, the more you realize how much harder it actually is. What is something that you like, love, and care for? What is something that you love doing so much that you can do it for the rest of your life? What is something that you're willing to grow and flourish at the expense of momentarily saying no to so many things because it will take a lot of you to turn an idea into a reality? Every success story begins with a decision to focus on one thing. Constrain how much you are doing at the moment to expand an idea that will have value five years from now, ten years from now. No one will see what you are building. They won’t understand why you're so driven at something or why you are saying “no” to them or to other opportunities. It's challenging to say “no” because it's so easy to go with the flow, to get rewarded and recognized around people. But when you start saying no, because you are laser focused on opportunities that align with your goal, you have more room to say yes to the things that matter. You have more energy and mind power to absorb everything that will further you in your direction. Everything you do is connected. You grow from the right opportunities. You see things that busy people often look past. Make your timeline something important here and now and you will build something exceptional for those you care about.
