The best branding helps you form a relationship with the brand, after you already have the product in your hands. After you're already using it. As a result of that relationship an...

Usually, making those big, life-changing decisions is scary because there's so much we don't know. We want to get all the answers to all our questions before we pull the trigger. T...

We like to draw analogies between sport and business. When we think about sport, we understand the need for a good offensive strategy and a good defensive strategy. However, in bus...

A skeptic needs to be convinced. They don't just believe everything they're told. A genuine skeptic has an open mind. They're happy to be convinced either way. You just need to sho...

When you get a Yes...or a No...to your question, keep in mind that is almost never the answer forever. There will, over time, be changes to the factors and elements around that que...

The base price of the iPhone 13 is about $1,200. Every time Apple releases a new phone, I find myself thinking the same thing... 'That is a ridiculous amount of money to spend on a...

If you have a tendency to overthink things, to overcomplicate things...write it down. By writing down your thoughts, it helps you to clarify them, rather than having those thoughts...

Decentraland is the place to be. Well, if you want to be in a Metaverse, that is. A Metaverse is basically an online virtual world. A bit like a social network where you actually i...

What I love about that statement is that it demands accountability. You need to take responsibility for how your future turns out. You have to take control and be an active partici...

Many business struggle when it comes to creating regular content. One way to get around that is to focus on 'Evergreen Content'. Simply, content that is as relevant today as it wil...

I'm all for having a positive attitude. In fact, it infuriates me when people use the difficulties and challenges a a reason and excuse to not move forward. BUT...Toxic Positivity ...

We like to hear stories about how successful things got started. What were the early days of the Ford Motor Company really like? How did JP Morgan go on to become such an important...

Yesterday the world took a collective GASP...because Facebook went dark. And not just Facebook, but what Facebook owns too. Instagram and WhatsApp also went down. For the millions ...

Mentors can be great. I'm all in favour of people finding mentors. It's a useful means to an end. But, for some people, simply securing a mentor seems to be the end itself. They al...

A nice little quote I picked up from the AppleTV+ series 'The Morning Wars'. What I like about it is that this quote makes it personal. Unlike the more general quote 'A little know...

Once Upon A Time, seemingly not so long ago, we used to have to wait. We had to wait for the next edition of the newspaper to get the latest news. We had to wait for next week's ep...

Well-known Canadian psychologist, Jordan Peterson, is attributed with the quote... 'Compare yourself to who you were yesterday, not who somebody else is today.' That's probably a m...

It's hard for us to imagine a future that is dramatically different from the way things are right now. We have experience. We have history. And with that history and experience com...

A permanent solution to a temporary problem becomes a permanent problem. So says @naval. It's an important warning. Sometimes we become so focussed on the problem that we fail to s...

Many organisations, especially bigger organisations, put a lot of focus on the Process. They live and die by their SOPs. The monitor, report and audit their Process to within an in...

Here in Malaysia I can now, if we're fully vaccinated, go out for dinner with my wife and dine-in at a restaurant. BUT... We can not share the same Grab/Uber car. So, we need 1 car...

A key element of a social network these days is the ability to create the content, not just post and share it. Think Instagram and Snapchat with their filters.  Think TikTok with t...

In yesterday's episode I spoke about the idea of Netflix Mini-Cinema Pop-ups in hotel function rooms. Here's another idea... Take the Food Truck concept and apply it to a mobile Po...

Cinemas are now allowed to open in Malaysia. But the two major cinema chains have said they're not going to open yet. A bit part of their reasoning is that they just don't have any...

Taking a second look before deciding is usually a good idea. There's nothing wrong with double-checking your assumptions, calculations or even your gut-instinct. But if you need to...

When consider a job or career change, people often very definite ideas on the Industry they want to join. I want to work in the Hotel Industry.  I'd like a career in the Spa Indust...

Vitalik Buterin, Founder of Ethereum, was recently asked on his response to those who suggest Blockchain and Cryptocurrencies are just a fad. He reminded us that the same was once ...

@naval recently suggested 'You'll do better work if you're bored rather than busy'. I'm not sure I completely agree with that. Sure, I understand the logic. Which is, if you're bus...

They say that money can't buy happiness... but it can! If having a fancy handbag or a driving a luxury car makes you feel happy and you've got the money, then yes, your money absol...

'Cancel Culture' is a term most people associate with social media. But to me, it could also apply to much of the Tourism Industry today. In an effort to try to encourage people to...

Simon Sinek talks about the importance of finding your Why. Start with Why. Why do you do what you do? What is your passion? But for many of us, we just don't know what our Why is....

Usually when we're hiring somebody, we're looking for someone with specific knowledge and experience. Someone who knows the answers. The problem with that is, if you think you know...

I'm not talking about Uncle Albert's E = mc2. I'm talking about the 'relativity calculation' that your customers make before they decide to buy...especially if it's a non-essential...

One of the great losses now that the world has moved to Work From Home is those Watercooler Conversations. The serendipitous, informal chats you strike up when you're filling your ...

It's true that many brands, businesses and individuals have been left financially devastated as a result of the COVID-19 Crisis. But, at the Luxury end of the market, things are pr...

Today, my mailbox is empty. Let's face it, most days my mailbox is empty. Anything that appears in my mailbox is guaranteed to get my attention...coz there's nothing else in there....

A man marries a woman, hoping she will never change. A woman, marries a man, hoping she can change him...just a little bit. There's a lesson in that for any relationship or any arr...

Despite what some people would have you believe, most of us can't predict... which crypto will be the next Bitcoin ; which social media platform will be the next to pop ; what the ...

We're all familiar with the idea that whenever you fall down, you've got to pick yourself back up. But what about this idea from famed Canadian-American physician and medical resea...

The modern day extension of Writer's Block is Creator's Block. It's a problem anyone who is committed to creating regular content is probably familiar with. A problem of not knowin...

Rules are a funny thing. We know we need them for society to function. We have some rules that we follow to the letter. Yet there are other rules we are ok to break. And we get fur...

When we think about making a change, we tend to think of it in linear terms. We are currently HERE...and we'd like to go THERE. But of course the reality is that change almost neve...

Destiny requires action. So says @BrianRoemmele  It's a great perspective. Luck may well present you the opportunities. Serendipity may show you a path forward. However, you still ...

They say the most difficult part of change is first realising the need for it. Nonsense! Realising that you need to change is relatively easy. The hard bit is being able to handle ...

The good old days of 'My way, or the highway!' are largely gone. Today, leaders are encouraged to seek input from multiple stakeholders. To make group decisions. Whilst there are o...

A great quote from the movie AD ASTRA. Great in that it has a few different angles or perspectives. It could be that, when looking at something amazingly beautiful, sometimes all w...
