I am waxing poetic this week and searching for inspiration.


While prepping for client work a few days ago I found this poem by David Whyte and thought about sharing it with you. It speaks to me of the power of vivid language and beautiful storytelling. I hope it inspires you also :)

 

LOAVES AND FISHES

 

This is not

the age of information.

This is not

the age of information.

 

Forget the news

and the radio

and the blurred screen.

 

This is the time

of loaves

and fishes.

 

People are hungry,

and one good word is bread

for a thousand.

 

--D.W.

A Brand Shift for 2013: From Aspiration To Inspiration--The Role of Story

A Brand Shift for 2013: From Aspiration To Inspiration--The Role of Story | Current Updates | Scoop.it
It’s tempting to look at pop culture for insight into the zeitgeist, and it’s hard to look at pop culture without seeing a lot of Zombies. This may well not be a coincidence.

This article by Alan Snitow goes right along with the other article I curated today on Anthrocapitalism. 


Here Snitow talks about the massive shifts in consumer attitudes/behaviors that are creating shifts in marketing and branding.


The author suggests that one of these huge shifts is away from 'aspiration' marketing, where consumers aspire to buy their way into a better life, to 'inspiration' marketing. Inspiration marketing is focused less on what companies can give, and more on what consumers themselves can achieve. In other words, making customers the hero of the story.


But there is more here to the discussion and I encourage you to read the article. It's not that long and makes great points.


Even better, Snitow shares short videos of companies who have moved from aspirational to inspirational marketing. Perhaps this is what your business needs to do.


And once again, I wonder about the influence of storytelling. Of course stories fit exceedingly well into inspirational marketing.


Yet how much has the awareness, education in, and experiences with stories shaping the conversation and this movement? Maybe it is more of a chicken-and-egg syndrome.


In any event, I find it fascinating that this article and the one on anthrocapitalism show up on the same day but from different sources. And on the same day I received an email newsletter talking about how businesses are now in a post-Demming-process era and now in the era of valueing people in business. And the business was re-defining all of its work to meet this new direction. 


Well, certainly these discussions about the value of people over profits in business have been around for years. Only time will tell if trend watchers are actually seeing shifts that will stick, or if we are all just spitting into the wind again.


How will you show up in 2013? Your thoughts?

Somehow my original review got blown away by computer goblins last night! I know Scoop.it has a new user interface and it looks like they are still working out a few bugs.


So let me tell you why I posted this manifesto -- because it is a great reminder that even our smallest stories have the power to inspire others and change the world. Yes -- change the world.


We often take our stories for granted. We share them in conversation and don't think much of them.  But all stories have 'work' to do in the world -- whether they are big hairy audacious stories or quiet little ones.


Print out this poster and keep it handy. It's a terrific reminder of the power of all YOUR stories to make a difference in the world.
