JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 233 :: seeing trust everywhere

21 Aug

{trust}  

I heard a lot of people talk about trust today. It was another day at eTail and the topics were all marketing all the time. What struck me most is how much TRUST popped out to me, how many times people said it today, and how important it is in business.

Of course, it is the red car phenomena – if you buy a red car you start seeing the everywhere. Which makes sense, what we look for we find.  

Could there be a better reason to look? If what you look for you find… maybe it’s not about the journey or the pursuit, but rather, the question. 

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 232 :: buzz

20 Aug

{trust}  

I’ve been thinking about bees much lately. Mostly because we have a resident beehive in our back patio area and Brady likes chasing them… until they chase him back and then, well, he doesn’t like it.

The bees remind me to keep buzzing after our dreams and to let the sweet nectar of our dreams fuel our pursuits. 

Like a bee to a flower…
Trust me!
More tomorrow.

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 231 :: trust

19 Aug

{trust}  

I spent the day at eTail Boston, with brand marketers and acquisition marketers and eCommerce gurus.  What we will do for a brand we love! Shoes, paint, clothing, cars… if there is one thing that ties the marketing suite together it is passion. Because, before all the ROI and ROAS and ROE data, there is love, passion and a reason to follow your heartstrings with your wallet. 

I find it ironic that I sit here tonight writing about love and trust and following your heart — after being in eCommerce meetings all day long. But it just seems obvious, that we love what love, we trust what we trust, and we trust what we love. Even if it is a brand.

In business and in life, follow the trail that leads you to your heart. 

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 230 :: love and trust

18 Aug

{trust}  

Today I watched the 2018 documentary, Won’t You Be My Neighbor? It’s a retrospective of Mr. Fred Rodgers, or what I knew as a little kid to be Mister Rodgers Neighborhood. 

It’s amazing how much of his message from that show are still with me, and I imagine so many others from his 30 years on television. But it was more than insightful for me to revisit it today through the eyes of an adult. In fact, it made me cry. Not just a few nostalgic tears, but rivers of tears dripping down my face.

It feels to me that our world needs another Mister Rodgers. Maybe an updated version to some degree because certainly, the world has changed. As I watched the documentary today I couldn’t help but wish that the void he left was filled, on television and now, social media. I remember being glued to the television watching puppets and actors and Mister Rodgers himself deliver the message of the day. Now, looking back I realize I had no idea how honest he was being, how insightful his teachings were and how safe he was making me feel in this very big world.

One of his quotes strikes a chord of trust with me today: 

Love and trust, in the space between what’s said and what’s heard in our life, can make all the difference in this world.”

Everything comes back to those two words: love and trust. 

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 229 create :: flow

17 Aug

{trust}  

I am enamored with flowers. How they grow, bloom, unfold. It’s no wonder that FLOW is the root of the word flower. I am also enamored with the trust required to bloom, whether you are a flower or a human. We must trust where we are planted, what we are fed, how we are nourished and weather patterns that are out of our control.

And yet, still, we bloom. It’s quite amazing really. 

So tonight’s thoughts on trust are to create flow, whether you are a flower or a human, and what where it takes you. 

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 227 :: dream trust

15 Aug

{trust}  

I’ve decided that we all need a Dream Trust. A trustworthy set of friends and supporters who see our vision even brighter than we ever could on our own. A Dream Trust is a small group of humans (maybe one…and maybe just a trustworthy dog too) who sits next to your dream and waters it, tends to it, and watches it grow.

Too many dreams get squashed right before they take root.  

If we all looked after our dreams and maybe those of one other person, it would be like focusing on the sunshine-to-rain quotient. Or, what it takes for seeds to sprout, grow and bloom.

Instead of focusing on the manufactured news or depressing moment of the day, or the what’s-wrong-with-the-world-now moment, the Dream Trust would hold tightly to all that is possible, even for one minute a day. Which adds up to hours, and then days, and years and well, many dreams realized.

And while not every dream is meant to come true (some are just meant to introduce us to our next dream) every dream is worth a Dream Trust. 

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 226 :: bloom beauty bloom!

14 Aug

{trust}  

It’s the height of summer and the flowers are still in bloom. The little rose bush outside my window still looks at me every morning with pink blooms. And I notice it. Mostly because it’s bright pink but also because it stands out against a green backdrop. 

It’s a good lesson in being different and uniquely beautiful. Sometimes the most beautiful things are the ones that aren’t afraid to stand out.   

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 225 :: choosing

13 Aug

{trust}  

It’s only Tuesday and it already feels like Friday! Maybe that is a good thing? Maybe it is a choice. I have been thinking much about choices lately, the ones we choose and the ones we let others choose for us — namely when it comes to attitude.

Attitude, it seems is the only thing that we have control over, and choice. To choose our attitude no matter the circumstances.

One time, a while ago, I did a No Complaint Challenge. The gig was to count the number of days in a row that you could rack up not complaining. It was, well, challenging. There are so many ways to complain, and so many little under the breath or to the side gripes that count in the complaint department. But complaining is not a reaction, it is, rather a choice.

There are so many reasons to have a good attitude, we just have to choose one. 

It’s amazing how the world changes when we make different choices. 

Trust me!
More tomorrow.
