You have to wonder if a majority of the art, inventions or technologies we enjoy today would exist if the creative mind(s) behind them 'never gave up.' 

Just read this article by +Men with Pens and feel a little happier and a little lighter as I start my day. ;)

Hi +David Amerland, +Alison Cummings here from the +Ray Hiltz #LunchBunch. "Disruptive" is the perfect one-word summation for today's social media landscape. It's exciting, but a bit of a roller-coaster ride. I appreciate the clear strategy you provide to take on these new challenges.

Interestingly, a week prior +Mitch Joel, author of CTRL, ALT Delete, spoke at +Social Media Breakfast Montreal about how we are in  "media purgatory," with no clear, defined rules. What used to be a clear, straight path in our careers, our workplace culture, to how we brand/market our products and services, has become a "squiggly line." 

How do we evolve, stay relevant and embrace "a world that has totally changed"? During his talk, Joel shared his views on how to "reboot" as a business and as an individual.

One quality he highlighted as important for small business owners like me: Resilience.

My thanks to you both for taking on a relevant topic in such an engaging, thought-provoking (and accessible!) manner.

Reminds me of +Mitch Joel's advice during last Wednesday's  +Social Media Breakfast Montreal on how to evolve and stay relevant in the reboot of today's CTRL ALT Delete world.

It's all about resilience.

It all depends on what you consider "successful."
