10 Facts that Bridge the Online with People

1. Internet and the Web will always be there. Love it or hate it, but at some point someone will talk about you, whether you are there or not. Hint: better be there.

2. You will learn everyday. You are enrolled to the largest university in the world, the Internet, and hey, it’s free!

3. As human being you do not usually make mistakes, you only fail sometimes. Developing your knowledge about the Social Web is a process of trying, doing, experimenting launching and thus, experiencing failure. The damn “failed” thing it’s part of making something happen, just as the the experiments that may “work.”

4. Failures are repeated until you will learn them. The strategy or actions to be performed will be presented in various ways in different contexts, until you have learned to cope with different settings and also broaden your expertise in different situations. Then you can move to the next phase.

5. You’ll never stop learning. In a new environment where everything sill remains to be defined and is completely open to everything, there won’t be a single day that you don’t lear anything. If you belong to this human and technological era, where you truly are, you have a lot to lear yet.

6. There is no better placer to make a difference and make something happen. However, what has brought here, does not have to take us there, what works today, won’t do it tomorrow. When you get “there”, we will be here and there will be another “there” to be reached. This never ends, funny though.

7. People want to be connected and emotionally moved. Like you, simple, but significant and real.

8. You have all the platforms, tools and resources that you need to do something really fascinating. Now, it just depends on your attitude and the desire to step forward. It’s about taking risks and launch something that add value to the world and the people that live in.

9. Despite what most of the market and professionals say, the answer is within you. The real challenge, it’s not competing against any business or person, but against yourself. In order to connect and create resonance through the social Web using human business interactions, first you must to connect with yourself.

10. There’s no need that you follow this steps – which are not steps. If the rules are the only thing that separate you from making a difference, you don’t need these rules. Create your own game, a game where you and the people around you win.

There’s no human interactions and relations without the human factor, nor does social exists, without social there’s no interactivity, without interactivity the Social Web makes no sense at all.

Rational vs Irrational!

2231275834_6c1349ed9aI was at the forum about communication strategy in Fundesem discussing with the assitants and the speaker about the rational versus irrational…

As was a subject that seemed interesting, I decided to deepen…Of course! I asked several people if they consider if  there was nothing to be neatly separated, if  it was impossible to take a decision only with the reasoning or only with the emotional. Then, as  overall conclusion I find out that people equate being emotional with being irrational… but nothing could be further from the truth. If the situation calls for crying and someone is laughing, then that is irrational… not emotional. People who can “emote” are usually the people that have the ability to be very fluid and understand a situation at hand quick enough in order to make a valid, proactive snap decision… which can also include reasoning. There are benefits to being emotional and there are benefits to reasoning. An entire subject of logics was created to teach people how to think — but it doesn’t discount the person who is also emotional. In fact it can be a real asset!

I’ve also discivered that There are many different kinds of decisions and the division is more between the Cognitive and the Behavioral. Some decision can be made with one or the other and some with both. The gate is the type of decision being made, a nuance often overlooked.

The more complex is the problem, the less likely it is that we can completely isolate our emotional motives from our rationale calculations. This is because our instinct to act on our gut feel is still too strong; it had been a driving force behind behaviors of our ancestors for much longer than rational thinking had. Sometimes it takes a great effort to chose the rational path, so strong is the instinct. And sometimes gut feel gives us a better answer. But I think it happens less and less often, since the models we use get a little better with every generation (with a certain element of random fluctuation, of which the current crisis is a good example.)

In addition to this. I would like to add that in some extent we are referring to the  Emotional Intelligence which is seen more as an exceptional advantage in today’s corporate world. In fact, there are courses taught all over the world. The term emotional intelligence describes the ability to identify, assess emotions of one’s self, and others. Look, if the situation calls for a complete rational decision then one would have to base the decision on logic and vice-versa. Usually decision call for a mixed approach. It leads me to think that all emotion is involuntary when genuine.

To end up as an afterthought, I would like to quote a fragment of ‘Life on the Mississippi’ : ‘And mind you, emotions are among the toughest things in the world to manufacture out of whole cloth; it is easier to manufacture seven facts than one emotion’.
