People don’t buy what you do  they buy  why you do it

Why is the answer

“If you hire people just because they can do a job, they’ll work for your money. But if you hire people who believe what you believe, they’ll work for you with blood and sweat and tears.”

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?

Making happy business happen and awesomeness

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.

Make change happen

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.

It’s beautiful, but do we really need another one?

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…
