Closing the day with this beautiful piece by Jason Yang.

“A mind needs books as a sword needs a whetstone, if it is to keep its edge.” 
― George R.R. Martin, A Game of Thrones

and I would add a heart needs to hear the violin as a sword needs a whetstone, if it is to keep its reception.

Good night. 
J.

You can always count on Scott Adams to cut to the chase brilliantly. 

A big part of my personal evolution is driven by the learning that data is not the problem. It is the way Senior Leaders think that is the problem. Or more precisely it is the way they imagine the possibilities that is the problem.

Our leaders do feel that data is important, yet they don't use it. So why are so many analysts and IT folks and big data initiatives are still funded? The last pane of the comic explains that. Even if you want to ignore the data, you want it to be very very accurate. 

The comic is funny. It is painfully true.

Alphabet Taught To Kids Nowadays

I disagree with some of the letters (k, n, z) but still the concept is funny.

Though this might apply to tech parents only. :)

Is your job killing you?

Of course it is! :) But how? Why? And is there anything you can do to ensure you don't die early?

Of course there is. Humanresourcemba has created an infographic that shares "Who is the greatest risk for work-related stress death," "10 most and least stressful jobs," "Stress has been linked to" and a bit more. Well worth reviewing and making changes to our lives: http://zqi.bo.lt/iu2vq

I'm attaching the very last part of the infographic to this post. It is a very nice summary, please print and keep handy. And so please checkout the full graphic above.

I wrote a post detailing thoughts on the nomenclature of "SEO" (which I believe is here to stay and doesn't need to be changed, either in definition or wording), and of "inbound marketing" (which is emerging and has yet to be fully formed).

Evidence, Theories, and Truth:  A simple thought provoking illustration....

I love this. In part because it encourages and evidence based understanding, and because it applies the Occam's Razor :), and because it ends on a humble note. 

Still my fav is that, and tell me if you infer this too, no where does it say: "faith or 'wisdom' from an old book superseeds all observable evidence"

Introduction
“Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.” - Mahatma Gandhi.

That about sums it up. I seek knowledge, earn for continuous self-discovery, and try to enjoy life one day at a time with the ones I love.

I have my foot-prints in multiple domains, the key ones being analytics (offline & web), innovation & co-creation,  social networks, and emergent ways of how we can leverage the social changes around us.

I have over seventeen years of experience in customer analytics, search, social media & interactive marketing. I currently serve as a Board member of the Web Analytics Association Certification Committee, as an Online Tutor for the University of British Columbia’s Award of Achievement in Web Analytics Program and as a SEO & Marketing Strategist for a Fortune 100 firm.

In my previous job as an Asst.Professor of Marketing & Management, I taught courses in Strategy, Quantitative Analysis, and Decision Support.
