“people don’t buy what you do they buy why you do it”
Simon Sinek talks at TEDx about success, the why, how the brain translate, the law of diffusion of innovation, those who lead, and selfish inspiration. Got nothing here, just have to agree to all… Are you a leader of innovation?
Watched James Cameron (TED) talking us through his curiosity for science and fascination with the fantastic. Somewhere at the end he coins the above quote, brilliant. And finishes with “Failure is an option, but fear is not”. I will go ahead and use my new favorite word for this, awesomeness! Go ahead and enjoy below.
Stubled across this brillianze from being followed by Kansas City’s @dustinj on Twitter… following the trail to Shake Gently (great reading) … reading about how tuff it can be to explain what you do in the ever eveloving digtial space at Made by Many (good stuff)… picking up awesomeness as a word that is used way to little… to a new service (to me at least) called Posterous, awesome… to the What Consumes Me blog (don’t miss this) and this brilliant venn diagram and article.
We’ve found things we want to do, and can be paid for, but we’re not the best game in town. Mediocrity is not a sustainable strategy. Being able to recognize your own weakness is a profound strength, and acting to improve what you do is key to any kind of long term growth and stability. Find the best talent and steal them. Learn how your competitors run their businesses, and copy what works.
What a journey! What awesomeness!
Seriously, isn’t it awesome what you can find through social technology, great content, brilliant people and the greater internet – it still just blows my mind.
On the topic of getting things done… here is a great example of creative problem solving. Two students from the Hyper Island school put this site together to aid their move. Got to love the power of the web for getting stuff done.

One just have to admire people with enough energy and drive to blow the hats of most and enough perseverance to make stuff happen. Jamie Olive is defiantly that. A pure passion for food that borders on the obscene, right where it should be. Attach a true cause to that and we now have our first food crusader. This video make one think, what happened to our priorities? Let’s make change happen.
A very nice interface, some nice integration of features, got games, got music, got movies… Sounds kinda main stream now a days, right. Question is, do we really need another closed platform and content property? Is this driving innovation or just making islands out of it? I would spontaneously say no, lets go open and make the user make the decision on their terms.
Non the less, this thing is gorgeous – but will it make me move all my stuff…
If you missed the hype by the brand with the ability to milk every rumor out of the worlds tech community, aka Apple, here is the link to the next step in mobile computing / interaction – Apple iPad. (warning: a lot of unbelievably, incredible, exciting, absolutely the best in there;) Got to love innovation!
I am gonna go and drool over this shiny new gadget a little more, lets discuss more later…
