From the "A-Ha!" NH Social Media Business Summit. This is the kick-off session that addresses the shift happening right now in the world of business and in our own lives, and how we as professionals can be adapt to this dynamic new environment.
Though no one likes to go through the process of the learning curve - especially when it can seem like it's getting steeper and steeper in the online realm - it's in each other's best interest to go with it, because if you're not visible online these days, you're actually *invisible*.
We're at the intersection of technology & humanity, and the values that are becoming ever more important include:
Ultimately, mindset is everything is this new world. How you choose to respond will make the difference between riding the wave - messily and imperfectly at first, but with increasing mastery and always authentically - and being stranded on the beach.
From mindset, then, flows the important next step - taking action. As Paul Boynton, award-winning CEO of the Moore Center and author of "Begin With Yes" says, "The secret to a good life is less about having a positive attitude and more about taking positive actions."
Lani Voivod sums up this opening of the Summit with four guidelines for positive actions, which come from Don Miguel Ruiz's "The Four Agreements":
1. Be Impeccable With Your Word
2. Don't Take Anything Personally
3. Don't Make Assumptions
4. Always Do Your Best
