Incredible Instrument

This is one of those videos you’re going to want to have your friends and family watch… There is no need to preface it other than click on the YouTube image and be amazed!

Inspirational video

As you may or may not know, my blog content is more than 50% user generated by readers and subscribers. It means that I get access to literally hundreds of submissions and contributions per year that I would never find on my own. First because I wouldn’t be searching for it and second, I don’t have the breadth and scope to find such a wide range and variety of things that are out there.

Today’s video was sent to me by a client, FinPacific who provides financial treasury management software solutions to medium and large businesses. They have a corporate culture based on authenticity, congruency and honesty that is truly remarkable. It did not surprise me that they would have come across this incredibly inspirational video of a 15 year-old girl. You simply have to start watching and you’ll find yourself mesmerised by her wisdom, maturity and eloquence. She can teach us all a few life lessons!

Additional notes on the video:

http://www.INKtalks.com Like Voltaire, she believes a shipwreck gives us an opportunity to sing in the life boats. Little Aisha Chaudhary, the first INK Youth Fellow, teaches us a big lesson even as she is battling a life-threatening medical condition. All of 15, Aisha has taught herself to paint, take pictures, run with her dog and dance at her cousin’s wedding, not just once but twice. Aisha learned art at the American Embassy School. “You live every moment twice, once in your mind and once when you actually live it,” she said to a standing ovation.

ABOUT AISHA CHAUDHARY: Fifteen year-old Aisha Chaudhary was born with an immune deficiency disorder and overcame a predicted life expectancy of only one year to have become an accomplished artist today. Despite a serious lung disease called Pulmonary Fibrosis, her persistent optimism, extraordinary maturity in the face of impossible odds, and calm perspective on life’s challenges have been an inspiration to many.

Antimimeticisomorphism: One Media Player Per Teacher

Andrew Powell of Montreal, Canada sent me the video below.

It’s such a good example of antimimeticisomorphism that I had to share it with you.

For me, what I found astonishing is how I never would have thought it would be valuable to have such a limited ‘tool’ – until I realised the immense power of its simplicity and the huge reach such simplicity gives it – making it totally exponential!

Happy Valentine’s Day

As a subscriber to this blog, you know by now that one of my foundational principles is called Exponential Mindset Thinking, which means…

Having fun
doing out-of-the-ordinary things
that create extra-ordinary results
with the least amount of effort
and lowest cost

The video below is just another example of how you can have FUN with concepts like this – to brighten up people’s lives with a little humour.

I know it sounds trite that “life’s too short to be too serious”, but it’s true. Too many people take business way too seriously.

As I’ve said many times, there is a balance between humour/fun and ‘official’ business, but WITHOUT ANY humour or fun, there is NO balance.

Just start thinking of ways to lighten things up – I am sure you’ll come with something…

Antimimeticisomorphism: School built out of plastic bottles

This series of blog posts spotlighting examples of antimimeticisomorphism are aimed at triggering your Reticular Activation System (RAS) to seek out and find similar examples that can help you grow your business, advance your career and/or improve your life(style). When you do come across something that is truly out-of-the-ordinary, please pay it forward by sharing it with me so I can keep this going indefinitely.

Happy Holidays!

You never know who’s sitting next to you… This inspirational video was sent to be by Ioho de Beer – it’s topical for the holiday season. It reinforces the positive force that’s out there, making a difference in the world. One shopping experience at a time!

Antimimeticisomorphism: New iPod 4?

I wonder if Apple is going to have an iPod version like this soon?

Simplicity In Science

Einstein once said the goal of science and innovation is to “make things as simple as necessary, but no simpler.” Wise words to guide us.. This short video extols this concept revealing what top researchers are thinking to save millions of people from preventable diseases at little or no cost…

Antimimeticisomorphism: A Map Example

As reader or subscriber to this blog, you’ve come to expect to see things that are different, or the same things you’ve always seen, but from a different perspective. Today’s post is about maps. How different can maps be? After all they represent what’s there… Or do they? If you think you know how maps are created and what they represent, think again!

How To Live: Steve Jobs

New year, new life, new destiny. But what destiny do you really want? That’s the question Steve Jobs, Apple’s CEO answers with his commencement address at Standford University. It’s worth the 15 minutes to sit back, listen and ponder what you’re doing with yourself and your life in 2010. What I really like about this video is that hindsight is always 20/20, but what if you could have 20/20 foresight?

That’s what I teach my clients – 20/20 foresight – to connect the dots as Steve explains, by PLACING them in front of you instead of as a bread crumb trail behind you.

Imagine if it was possible to set a course to ANY DESTINATION, ANY CAREER, ANY GOAL…

Norman Vincent Peale said it first ” Whatever  the mind can Believe and Conceive, it can Achieve.”

It call it the ABCs of Personal Mastery.

It all starts by BELIEVING in yourself as Steve tells some of the brightest graduates…

The sad part is only a very small fraction will actually listen to what he’s saying.

You just need to know what “all is”!
