In the new book The EROS Equation, relationship expert Eve Eschner Hogan offers a set of strategies that can help strengthen good relationships and can help strained relationships (whether work-related or personal) to mend.
It seems the more educated we become the harder it is to hold good relationships and it should not be this way. A relationship should be simple, you talk to me and I talk to you, sincerely it is that simple, maybe too simple for some.
We have complicated our ways with endless formulas for every aspect of life. Stop trying to lord over and control people, no one owns anyone, simply appreciate people and respect their boundaries, people do not need to like the sport you engage into nor the places you attend, simply converse without ulterior motives, sarcasm, do not unleash an avalanche of advices if not requested.
Just tell me about you, what you do, your business, the groups you belong to, what you like and dislike, you can take a whole hour to tell me about you and more, but after telling me all of this about you there should NOT be any expectation that I will do what you do nor engage in your activities and your beliefs, and this does not mean that we cannot be friends, we can meet once in a while to catch up. It is that simple, is this too hard for some to maintain?
This is the biggest key for good relationships >>> DO NOT FORCE PEOPLE TO BECOME LIKE YOU. Control is taboo in any and every relationship, don't people know this?
The reason why relationships fail is a lack of respect, many do not have a choice but to walk or breakaway from individuals and groups.
It is very sad that the most technologically savvy and most civilised and educated generation has so many relationship issues. I hope it changes.
It’s time. It’s time to get rid of those clunky button-bricks hiding under the couch, collecting dust on top of the entertainment center, or sitting in the corner of the room like some kind of ironic modern art.
Great Neil Ferree Post meant for Lawyers but equally applicable to startups and any online business (and what business isn't an online business now?). Lawyer capitulation is particularly interesting because lawyers worry about content creation's legal implications more than any other business.
For an "inside baseball" lawyer website like this one to explain the importance of content marketing supported by social shares means the costs of NOT participating are so much greater than the liabilities of creating great content marketing supported by social. If "not joining" the movement is so clear to lawyers the same implicaitons should be clear to all.
I work with many healthcare providers and they should read this post too. Anyone with QUALMS or worries about content marketing and social shares should read this post since it explains the prohibitive costs of NOT joining the content and social marketing party already in progress.
Yes the article is a tad technical, but your takeaway should be if LAWYERS are encouraging other LAWYERS to create and support content the last brick in the dam is in place. Any continued denial, obfuscation or non-acceptance of content and social marketing will be expensive (as in you won't be here much longer).
We can discuss the need to be GREAT later, right now let's simply agree Content Marketing and Social PRESENCE are DEMANDED.
This blog sheds clarity and accuracy on what Google authorship truly is all about. What GA is and is not. A must read if you use Google+ local and business for your social media/marketing. #BrigitteSouci
We have to stop using the term "keyword" as much as we can. It will never go away, don't get me wrong, but our focus has to change. This means speaking differently, reporting differently, and changing the conversation with our clients about their goals.
