When the problem sitting on your desk seems insurmountable

Written by Geoff Talbot – Co-founder of the Seven Sentence Blog

 
Money doesn’t solve problems although sometimes it sure feels like it would help.

People solve problems, beautiful, wonderful crazy people, who refuse to be blocked by the obstacles in front of them.

People with vision, people with imaginations that see beyond the stars, imaginations that open up doors that appeared to have been locked and bolted for all eternity.

A man on the moon… no problem, a telephone system that allows you to talk to loved ones hundreds of thousands of miles away… we got you covered.

This serves to remind us that the solution to your big problem is simply one creative idea away.

When we are feeling stuck, when the rock over our “problem’s tomb” is simply too big to move, we should not fall down in despondency or cry out in hopelessness — we should do something else.

We should ask our imagination for the answers that we seek, over and over again… for this is a righteous and holy thing to do.

Being playful is the serious business of life

Written by Geoff Talbot — Co Founder of The Seven Sentence Blog

 

Perhaps play is the origin of all creativity…

Can you be truly creative without being playful? Even the darker arts require a sense of mischief… or so I’ve heard ;-)

The most creative people in life are nearly always the most playful; completely lacking that sense of self-important intellectualism that makes a soul as stiff as cardboard.

We need to become like little children, finding joy in the simplest things, learning to play in the mundane and never growing tired of repetition.

How many problems in this world are caused by people who take themselves too seriously?

Being playful is the serious business of life… who is your “play” mentor?

How To Become A Thought Leader

Written by Geoff Talbot — Co Founder of The Seven Sentence Blog

 

Thought leaders change the way that people think.

Why?

Because they have first identified either a problem or a gap in the way that others are thinking. Thought leaders think differently, but they also have the ability to effectively communicate new ways of thinking to others.

A genuine thought leader leads by example; they don’t just think about things, they also implement.

If you want to become a thought leader then you must by necessity become a person of action, you must put your shoulder to the plough and put your hands in the dirt.

The people who change the way we think are invariably those who have spent a considerable amount of time at street level, struggling, fighting and pushing against the status quo.

She was the worst shop assistant that I ever met.

Written by Geoff Talbot — Co Founder of The Seven Sentence Blog

 

Talk about rude, talk about self-absorbed, she didn’t even look me in the eye and I am pretty sure that she did catch a single word that I uttered!

When I walked out of the store, I was convinced that I would never buy any products from that store again.

Now, wait for it, I am going to break the cardinal rule of online decency AND I am going to name that store and I am going to slander that shop assistant by name.

Are you ready?

The business is yours and you are the shop assistant who was completely and utterly rude to me.

I’m not talking about your actual store, I am talking about your virtual shop assistant, I am talking about the way that you and your business are communicating in cyberspace.

It’s time you put the customer first, it’s time you stopped talking and started listening, there are real people at the other end of your messages.

It’s a terrible lie that every business owner should be aware of!

There is a giant myth out there circulating through the ether in cyberspace, be careful to pay it no attention when it whispers past you in the breeze.

What is the myth?

The myth is that having a presence in the digital space will have no actual effect on your financial bottom line.

Yawn.

Firstly, it is true that last year the average small business invested between $23-$60K on their website and social media channels and secondly, it also true that Forbes reported that 60% of small businesses saw zero financial return on this investment.

Then why is it a myth?

Because it is the type of presence and what it is you are actually doing in the social space that will dictate whether or not you will experience a positive result with your work here – 40% of business are killing it!

Two Ears & One Mouth? – It turned out my Granddaddy knew a lot about social media.

Written by Geoff Talbot – Co-Founder of Seven Sentences

 

Are you currently going through a lean patch in your business or career?

I’ve heard it said that if you are NOT “selling” it is mostly like because you have ceased sharing your story with other people. In the older world, if you quit knocking on doors then you would stop selling vacuum cleaners.

Have you had any new conversations lately? Remember growth nearly always comes through relationships.

But here is the real kicker, I am not sure that success is simply about sharing your story, I think it is about something else.

Have you truly engaged and listened to somebody else’s story lately — therein lies the secret to great success.
