Decisions and the psychology of your future self

Just came across this great TED talk, about decisions and the psychology of you future self. Some of you might be thinking the what now to the who? Well it is pretty simple, it is a talk about a study where they looked at the differences between what you think today and what you think…

Seth Godin: The tribes we lead

I took the time the other day to clean up my pocket account, which I hadn’t done for a long time. Amongst all the Bookmarks I had saved for future reference, there was a lot of stuff that was no longer relevant, the world has moved. But there were a few gems, this video of…

Linkedin The next 10 years

I have been a member of Linkedin for about 7 years, not an early adopter in a global sense but I am pretty sure I was in the first few thousands of members in Australia.  I am a fan, I love it, I could spend hours on it and often do. The only negative is…

Freemium

I don’t know about you, but the rise of Freemium is starting to irk me. But I am not talking about services or products that you get the basics for free which gives you pretty good functionality.  I am talking about the services where it is deliberately restrictive, where using it is barely usable.

Free shouldn’t be hard…

I received an “offer” from a well known Social Media group to try their premium platform free for a month.  Great I thought, let’s give it a spin, the non-premium version is pretty good, but the full version has some bells and whistles that look pretty good, so I clicked the link. The first step…

Latest Seth Post – Do you love your customers?

There are two ways people think about this: We love our customers because they pay us money. (Inherent here is customers = money = love.) We love our customers, and sometimes there’s a transaction. The second is very different indeed from the first. In the first case, customers are the means to an end, profit.…

Latest Seth Post – Groundhog day and the Super Bowl

One way the tribe identifies is through the observance of a holiday, of a group custom, of the thing we all do together that proves we are in sync. People thrive on mass celebration, but as our culture has fragmented, these universal observances are harder to find. We used to watch the same TV shows…
