The medium is NEVER the message

Written By Geoff Talbot – Co-Founder Of The Seven Sentence Blog,

What do you have to say and how can you say in a remarkably profound way?

Did someone tell you that you must have a blog?

Well, what kind of blog?

How do you naturally engage others in every day life?

Are you a poet, a musician, a photographer, or do you really excel speaking via video?

It is very important that we choose the technology vehicle that best suits your preferred communication style.

The medium is never the message (tweet), the medium you choose to communicate with, should be the one that you enjoy the most.

Imagine yourself as a great artist

Written By Geoff Talbot – Co-Founder Of The Seven Sentence Blog,

 
I sincerely hope you agreed with yesterday’s post (here).

If you did not, then you have probably decided to follow some kind of formula with all your online activities.

My question is why are you even committing to having an online presence if you are not prepared to truly express your voice in a creative fashion?

Are you after actual tangible results?

Are you prepared to invest your time, energy, creativity and resources in this space?

If your answer is no, then I would actually advise you to close your social media accounts, because a presence that is NOT fully creative and fully alive will actually hurt rather than help our business or career.

Let’s take some time tomorrow and re-imagine you as an artist and not just another monotonous voice in the digital space.

Artistry is not a gift. Do you Disagree?

Written By Geoff Talbot – Co-Founder Of The Seven Sentence Blog,

 
It’s time to throw off a dirty lie that many of you have believing for far too long.

You don’t think that you are creative, you don’t believe yourself to be artistic.

This is a filthy lie — you are more creative than you could possibly imagine.

This is a self-limiting lie that has been keeping your soul captive in a prison built out of mundane stone.

Artistry is more craft than it is gift – you can grow, you can develop and you excel in the expression of your own unique brand of artistry.

And if you want to grab any new digital medium by the throat and excel in the 21st century, you are going to have as much of an artist as you are a business person.

Do you disagree?

The Crimes My Mother Committed

Written By Geoff Talbot – Co-Founder Of The Seven Sentence Blog,

 
Don’t jump to conclusions.

My mother isn’t the kind of killer that you first may have assumed her to be (read).

She is a tiny, sweet, kind little old lady that wouldn’t hurt a soul, unless you have rodent DNA, then if you are in her kitchen and she will carve you in two with a flick of her wrist… my somewhat obtuse point is simply this…

Why are you consistently producing content in the digital space that intellectually rich but emotionally unsatisfying 24/7 when your goal is to connect with and engage real people?

You’d be better off writing about the things that are common to all people, like moms who hate rats, common stress points, broken relationships or dirty jokes.

Never forget that behind all human communication is a strong desire to connect person to person, to be known, to be heard and to be listened too.

Don’t accept boring, don’t ramble on when no one is listening, it’s simply unacceptable.

I have SHOCKING news

Written By Geoff Talbot – Co-Founder Of The Seven Sentence Blog,

 
My mother is a convicted killer.

STOP… just for a moment stop!

What in God’s name did I just write in the opening sentence of this blog?! You weren’t expecting to read that were you?

I jolted you awake by giving you something that you did not expect, I did it because I wanted to break you out of a rhythm that is taking you on a boring trip to hell.

If you want to get noticed in the digital space you cannot express your remarkable voice in a boring way — you must express your remarkable voice in a remarkable way.

Now back to my mother…

How To Find The Ferrari Inside Of You

Written By Geoff Talbot – Co-Founder Of The Seven Sentence Blog,

 
 
When we work with any client in the digital space (more here), one of the first things that we must do is establish what is truly remarkable about you, our client.

This is not a thinking thing or some kind of ethos or ideal. Surprisingly enough we’re looking for that wildly out of control, passionately unstable, world changing, pulsating, foot stamping, undomesticated, life giving beast that lives inside of each one of us.

Her name is Passion.

It is a beautiful thing to find Untamable Passion inside of a person; the kind of Passion that could pull a thousand chariots (Tweet this).

If you don’t find your Passion you will live forever in the land of trying hard — Don’t do this.

Once we have befriended Passion, we can move on to the next step in shaping a remarkable online presence for our clients — now we have Passion we must embrace her twin sister Artistry.

Difficult Questions Lead To Strong Choices

Written By Geoff Talbot – Co-Founder Of The Seven Sentence Blog,

 
 

  • Have you ever wondered why no one reads your blog? (Tweet).
  •  

  • Are you stuck in a place in your business where you are surviving but not really thriving?
  •  

  • Is your career as an actor, stuck in a rut of bad commercials and walk on roles that are leaving you less than satisfied?

 
I hate to tell you this, but this isn’t a genetic problem that you have, it is not due an absence of family connections and it is certainly not because you act the talent.

It is simply because you are not making strong enough choices, you are caught in the middle, living a life, where you are reading somebody else’s lines.

You are not getting the attention you want and deserve simply because you are yet to stamp your foot in a remarkable way.

You are too happy with mediocrity, that’s right it’s time to get a little angry and stamp your foot at the status quo.
