And our backs get straighter with practice

Mimicry is the progenitor of bias.

The really important stuff we have to imagine on our own.

Of course that takes practice and practice and more practice.

And it must be done when no one else is around.

The worst kind of information……

………that which you got from your neighbor.

It doesn’t matter if it is an email pass-along, gossip or the latest on a product recently seen on television or the internet or maybe a ten word tweet. Information gathered in this fashion is believed according to the number of repetitions within the community of the individual receiving it. Its value is based not on truth but on popularity.

This is the yardstick used by marketers.

As a marketer, I rarely possess a measure for the ethical considerations of the individuals who populate my target market. I can follow my own rules of good conduct. I can add a little music. If I make a sale I wrap my product and send it on its way.

You are your own secret weapon.

You are your own secret weapon.

Your friends and coworkers understand what you are doing when you describe life. They understand that you are very careful in your description of details.  They understand that you are sharing so others can profit from your experience.

And then there are The Interpreters. The interpreter may think that your attention to detail reveals that you are either complaining or bragging.

Complaining is an indirect way of asking for help. So is bragging. The Interpreter must interpret when confused by honesty. Indirectness and a lack of self-awareness are the tools of The Interpreter.

Sharing on the other hand, contributes to the good of all.

When the Interpreter asks how you are doing, say GREAT. To do otherwise would impede growth for all concerned.

“Daniel in the Lion’s Den” is a great metaphor for the Detailer who is surrounded by Interpreters.

It is possible to be surrounded by a single Interpreter. Be still; it will soon be over.

This remark is mildly sarcastic. Sarcasm attempts to bridge the gap between complaining and sharing.

You are your own secret weapon. Your gift will grow when shared.

Until one understands…

Until one understands Love, one’s only protective device is Fear.

Until one  understands Fear, one’s only protective device is Love.

During gestation one’s primary protective device is Love.

With birth the new life is introduced to Fear.

 

When serving customers or when wanting to offer your company’s product for sale are you operating from a base of Love or of Fear?

How do you feel about your answer to this question?

When you are introduced to a new product or a new idea are you cautious or are you curious?

How do you feel about your answer to this question?

Enjoy your weekend.
