May your molehills remain molehills and may your ego choose molehills over mountain climbing.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

Better to climb mountains in your mind than on the back of your donkey-ego. 

Biting your tongue just before it expresses something quite right but nonetheless doomed to be poorly received – that’s a good thing.

You can choose to adjust your personality so it is more pleasing and less annoying. Sometimes, the choice involves biting your tongue.

I developed a serious interest in other people ... in less than 6 decades.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

From a very early age, I noticed people making mistakes. I didn't just notice it. Their mistakes scraped in my ears, seared my eyes and caused me all sorts of other discomfort, anxiety and annoyance. 

But, in less than 6 decades I managed to get beyond the constant barrage of other people's errors...and, when all the dust cleared, I found myself truly interested in other people.

The cornerstone of our personality, our mental attitude, shows up as the general flavour of our thoughts.

We can choose from 3 mental-attitude flavours: Positivity, Negativity, & Indifference.

Positivity is the best flavour...a rich flavour in many ways.

Negativity can be hard to swallow...but, at least, it gives you something to argue against.

Indifference - so bland it's not worth writing about.

Refuse to allow your ego to join the mule trains climbing those mountains!

Your brand starts with your character and the culture you breed: your brand stalls or flourishes there.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

A brand isn't a cute visual.

A brand isn't a catchy logo or a slick tag line.

A brand cannot pretty up a flawed character or a troubling culture.

When testing new branding, take a step back and look at your personal character and your business culture. Do they pass the litmus test? Do they render an investment in 'branding' worthwhile? Or, do they neuter your branding expenditures?
