Why We Should Remember (And You Should, Too!)

A series of projects, events, and other activities have prevented me from posting on Yap 3.0 for quite awhile now although I’ve not stopped being out there at conferences like here , here, here, here, and on Twitter among other venues. I find myself thinking, in the larger scheme of things, does one’s value diminishes have a direct correlation to not . . . → Read More: Why We Should Remember (And You Should, Too!)

Would you try a Cherimoya or stick with a Mango?

“Yuck” was all I heard when I said to a colleague the other day, “Let’s get some cherimoya*” as we were at Longos getting lunch.

She continued “I would rather get a mango.”

Don't be a Grazlax, it's Clean-Up Canada Day

Happy Canada Day!

It’s Canada Day today and what better way to honour the unity of three colonies into one country than to clean up one’s cluttered environment.

Loyalty be damned. Our system doesn't allow us to alter anything so you're S.O.L.

Talked with, let’s call her Corinne, at a high end Toronto hotel spa this morning.

Are you an integrator of your social feeds or not?

Someone from my network complained quite publicly that he doesn’t want to see feeds from Twitter integrated into Facebook. He even questioned why someone would integrate YouTube, Pinterest, Instagram feeds into their Facebook feeds. That said, he said he will unfriend people in his network if they continue to do this.

Which would you choose? Feeling response or Productivity response

Coming back from Asia, my sleeping patterns always seem to be out of whack. I know, I’ve heard the mom’s give me remedies (which I dutifully followed) and the medical remedies (which I dutifully swallowed), but my circadian rhythm needs 1-2 weeks to adjust. So nothing works.

When you match this with multiple out-of-town trips, then it really . . . → Read More: Which would you choose? Feeling response or Productivity response

It’s been two weeks since New Year. What’s your update on your resolutions? Still too early to see if it sticks? One of my resolutions is to add more music in my life. As I was listening to GrooveShark, I got a link from a colleague to check out Justin’s new single on.. MySpace. Huh?
