What will your legacy be?

Regardless of what you thought of Michael Jackson’s ‘lifestyle’ and peculiarities, his passing leaves us all with the awe of his talent, expression and  ability to entertain across boundaries of colour, race and generations. That brings up the question – what will your legacy be? What are you creating that will be left behind when you depart this world/existence/reality?

What will YOUR legacy be?

What will YOUR legacy be?

The reason this is important to think about now is because the NEW YEAR is upon us in a few days…

When would NOW be a good time to start planning to make 2010 You Best Year Ever? Hmmm

When you’re in business, you can create an on-going legacy, one that survives you – most don’t achieve that goal – but you can, if you PLAN FOR IT.

Start by THINKING ABOUT IT…

Antimimeticisomorphism Example: Felony Franks

Exponential Branding 101: Own Your Own Word

By now, you know I own the word antimimeticisomorphism – which is having fun doing out-of-the-ordinary things that create extra-ordinary results with the least amount of effort at the lowest cost. You can Google antimimeticisomorphism and all 400+ references are mine. That being said, you can also create an ACRONYM like Kellogg’s LCMs and leave it to people’s imagination to come up with their own interpretation.

Totally Exponential – IF you can create enough exposure to have ‘some’ people to start thinking about it.

Go on and try to find out the answer – it’s fascinating to see the forum discussions out there = FREE branding!

I like it!

A Bright Idea For Self Promotion

Today’s post combines self-promotion with a Unique Selling Proposition. John Ghetto of www.Blightlights.com.au tells me this strategy gets people to ring him when they see it. It’s one of the most effective self-promotional strategies you can use…

Can you imagine how much you could save if you cut your lighting bill in half?!?

Apparently the NSW Government saved more than 1 million dollars…

Unique Selling Proposition - Example 1

This kind of self-promotion is very inexpensive yet VERY EFFECTIVE. If you have vehicles out on the road, you really do need to consider this Exponential Marketing Strategy.

The only thing I would suggest is to put the WEBSITE on the trucks and TEST different ways of saying the same thing – to SEE WHICH ONE gets the most calls/responses.

An etymologically exponential strategy to consider

Today’s post has been contributed by Ronnlynn Bartosh.

This is an excerpt from one of her daughter’s favourite TV shows.

“Grey’s Anatomy” (2005) {If Tomorrow Never Comes (#1.6)}

Dr. Meredith Grey: [voiceover] A couple hundred years ago Benjamin Franklin shared with the world the secret of his success. Never leave that ’til tomorrow, which you can do today. This is the man who discovered electricity; you’d think we’d pay more attention to what he had to say. I don’t know why we put things off, but if I had to guess it has a lot to do with fear. Fear of failure, fear of pain, fear of rejection. Sometimes the fear is just of making a decision. Because… What if you’re wrong? What if you make a mistake you can’t undo? Whatever it is we’re afraid of, one thing holds true: That by the time the pain of not doing the thing gets worse than the fear of doing it, it can feel like we’re carrying around a giant tumor. And you thought I was speaking metaphorically… ‘The early bird catches the worm.’ ‘A stitch in time saves nine.’ ‘He who hesitates is lost.’ We can’t pretend we haven’t been told. We’ve all heard the proverbs, heard the philosophers, heard our grandparents warning us about wasted time; heard the damn poets urging us to seize the day. Still, sometimes we have to see for ourselves. We have to make our own mistakes. We have to learn our own lessons. We have to sweep today’s possibility under tomorrows run until we can’t anymore. Until we finally understand for ourselves what Benjamin Franklin meant. That knowing is better than wondering. That waking is better than sleeping. And that even the biggest failure, even the worst most intractable mistake, beats the hell out of not trying.

These sayings that we use in our everyday speech have all started somewhere – many of them as warnings or basic common sense. Very few of us know where these sayings have originated from and yet we use them as an intrinsic part of everyday life.

Many years ago in a village in England there was a young man who was considered ‘not very bright’. He was very shy. He would not speak, even when spoken to. In fact many people believed he couldn’t speak. He would spend his time watching people through their windows. But he would only peep from the side, he did not want to be seen or spoken to. Visitors to the village were told about Tom – he just likes to watch, but you must not try to talk to him. People from other villages heard about Tom. As word spread, Tom became famous.

What proof do we have of Tom’s fame?

As the years passed Tom became known in the village (and elsewhere) as ‘Peeping Tom’.

Although many of us do not know the story behind his name, it has become an integral part of our language and culture. The idea has grown and taken a life and meaning of its own.

Think of some of the sayings you use regularly yourself.

Write down three of the sayings you use that could be applied to your current state.

Now write down three sayings that convey where you want to be.

Using an A4 piece of paper in landscape mode, draw a line from the bottom left corner to the top right corner. Write the three sayings about your current situation along the bottom section of this line. Now write the three sayings about where you want to be along the upper section of this line. This line represents your personal journey you must undertake and you have already taken the first step. Put the paper on the wall above your desk. Now every time you sit at your desk you will see where you have been and re-establish where you are along that line as you journey towards your goal.

Now, consider what you have just achieved. You have taken action. You have taken one more step towards adjusting your mindset for success. Now it is time to achieve one step from your personal next best steps list.

Just start with one small idea and let it roll. As it rolls it will gather other ideas and escalate in the same way as a snowball rolling downhill. All it takes is the one little action of letting go of that snowball.

Utilising the skills learned from the Exponential Mindset™ strategies I’ve been talking about on this blog and elsewhere, let go of your snowball of an idea and let it roll down the hill so it can exponentially escalate as it rolls.

In the meantime, it is time for you to let go of that next snowballing idea and move…

Onward and upward!

P.S.
Did you know that Thomas E. Crapper invented the ‘modern/flushing’ toilet?

Did you also know that according to Wikipedia, the claim that the brassiere was invented by a man named Otto Titzling (phonetically tit-sling) who lost a lawsuit with Phillip de Brassiere (fill up de’ brassiere) is an urban legend that originated with the 1971 book Bust-Up: The Uplifting Tale of Otto Titzling and the Development of the Bra and was propagated in a song from the movie Beaches.

So what’s exponential about today’s post?

Hmmm… Good question.

Answer:
Every industry has particular and specific words it uses. if you know their origins, you can impress your prospects and suspects by TELLING them what you know.

For example, when I was in the Digital Reprographic Industry, I researched the historical roots of printing, reproduction, duplication, quick printing and reprography. The etymology of the word and it’s philology was significant as it reflected and mirrored the evolution and REVOLUTION of the industry. It comprised an entire chapter of my MBA thesis which was published as a book called “The Dynamics of Technological Change on the North American Reprographic Industry: A Synthesis of an Industry in Transition”. [Sexy title eh? BTW, it will be re-launched as soon as I complete the introduction to the 3rd edition.]

My understanding was based on 100 years of research, facilitated by the industry’s 3 top associations and trade organisations. It became the single most in-depth analysis of the industry published. I became the industry’s pre-eminent expert and as such was able to consult and sell to dozens of companies that otherwise would never have considered my products and services.

That is the topic of another post, for another day.

For now, your task is to learn more about the origin of the words that you and your industry use on a daily, on-going basis. Ask around and you’ll be amazed at the Urban Legends that exist – they too are fun and valuable to know.

Have fun with this.

The exponential DEPLOYMENT of this strategy is the creation of a PDF or YouTube video that explains this stuff in a fun and engaging manner. If you are creative, you can create a MindMap.

If you do create any of these, I would be happy to post it on this blog for all to see!

Dr Jan’s Exponential Sex 101

Australia’s very own “Dr Jan” calls it like it is.

Dr Janet Hall is an Exponential Marketing Bootcamp Graduate who eat, breathes and (literally) sleeps exponential strategies.

I am on her subscription e-mail list and I am amazed at her ability to deal with such a delicate subject in such a professional manner.

I am also impressed at her deployment and implementation of the Exponential Mindset™ and strategies. For example in this month’s edition of her e-mail subscription, she mentions two articles by a prominent American Sex Therapist “Top 10 Sex Mistakes Women Make” and “Top 10 Sex Mistakes Men Make”.

That rebuttal (excuse the intended pun) creates interest and Dr Hall responds with her own “Sex Tips for Aussie Blokes” in the same publication as well as in her e-mail subscription.

I have attached them here for your enjoyment and evaluation.

P.S.
There was no pun intended, but I have to admit it’s kind of funny.

There is nothing funny about sex problems, challenges and hang-ups. Dr Janet Hall is a true professional. She is devoted to helping you have your breakthroughs either through personal consultations or if you’re a little timid and shy via her online therapies that can be found at http://www.sextherapycourses.com/

She espouses the Exponential Mindset™ by making it easy for you to buy and deal with her. I hope you learn from this exemplary case and apply some of these strategies to your business.

Life’s too short to be too serious.

Here is an excerpt from my Wizard’s Wisecracks™ that you can receive for FREE by clicking here.

——— Wizard’s Wisecracks™ Excerpt ————

Isn’t it funny how we are so precocious with gender labeling of
humans, but yet in some languages it’s a major ordeal to give a
gender to inanimate objects?

Is it me or is this just a little too complicated?

Have fun debating this one with your spouse and/or colleagues.

A French teacher was explaining to her college class that in French, unlike English, nouns are designated as either masculine or feminine. House is feminine: la maison. Pencil is masculine: le crayon.


A student asked, ‘What gender is computer?’

Instead of giving the answer, the teacher split the class into two groups – male and female – and asked them to decide for themselves whether computer should be a masculine or a feminine noun. Each group was asked to give four reasons for their recommendation.

The men’s group decided that computer should definitely be the feminine gender (la computer) because:

1. No one but their creator understands their internal logic;

2. That native language they use to communicate with other computers is incomprehensible to everyone else;

3. Even the smallest mistakes are stored in long-term memory for possible later review; and

4. As soon as you make a commitment to one, you find yourself spending half your pay packet on accessories for it.

The women’s group, however, concluded that computer should be masculine (le computer) because:

1. In order to do anything with them, you have to turn them on;

2. They have a lot of data but still can’t think for themselves;

3. They are supposed to help you solve problems, but half the time they are the problem; and

4. As soon as you commit to one, you realise that if you had waited a little longer, you could have gotten a better model.

Onward and upward!

Who do you think won? The men or the women…

Yeah. I’ll leave that one alone for today.
