Let Go

Posted By: CJ

Sometimes letting go of long-held beliefs feels like grief. Especially if we learn that we were manipulated, duped, cheated into accepting those beliefs because we let others or society have more influence in our lives than we should have. And sometimes, as we move towards change and letting go, we may fall into the 5 stages of grief: denial, anger, bargaining, depression, acceptance and I’d like to add shame in there too. As we move into these stages we may lash out, we may create conflict, we may hurt others, we may shut down, not necessarily because we mean to but because we don’t realize we’re in the grieving process; we don’t realize we’re in the process of letting go of beliefs that may have defined us, that may have been a safety blanket, that may have allowed us to feel part of a group. So the process becomes painful and we suffer. So if you find yourself there or you sense collectively people are going through this, I urge you to see it from a higher perspective if you can. I urge you to treat yourself and others with compassion and forgiveness. I urge you to understand that this too shall end. The process may be painful and it may be slow, but in the end, freedom, wisdom and grace await. It’s worth it, I promise.

The Hero Within Us All

Posted By: CJ

“Heroes are made by the paths they choose, not the powers they are graced with.” 
― Brodi Ashton

We admire heroes on TV and in the movies because we so wish we could be like them – noble, brave, courageous, good. But we admire heroes as if we could never be as courageous or as noble. As if we could never be so special. But what if we could? What if in our own unique way, we’re already heroes and heroines?

Together, We Can Do Better

Posted By: CJ

These are evolutionary and revolutionary times.

No time like the present do we sit at both the edge of tremendous uncertainty and at the cusp of enormous potential and change. No time like the present is there a sense that we are headed towards new, uncharted territory, that something profound and unprecedented is happening, that in the distance, a future we all have the power to create together, right now, is within our grasp.

Despite political and economic upheaval, inequality, climate change and even despite all the perceived negativity that surrounds us daily, a great opportunity beckons and an awareness of a better future waits to be realized.

But to get there, it’s up to us.

The only way we can realize the bright future that awaits, is to work together. We are stronger together than we are apart after all. And that, is our new responsibility and our new shared purpose.

Aiming for Success: Recognizing Opportunities

Posted By: CJ

“It is not often that a man can make opportunities for himself. But he can put himself in such shape that when or if the opportunities come he is ready.”
~ Theodore Roosevelt

As one of the most iconic corporations in the world, Apple stands as the global brand everyone knows. And it was their breakthrough product the iPod that shot them to super stardom. But Apple wasn’t always the shining star.

In the early 1990s, Apple was on the verge of a slow descent into mediocrity. Steve Jobs, Apple’s driving creative force had been pushed out in 1985 and the company had lost focus ever since.

It wasn’t until Jobs joined the team once again in 1997 that the company steadily regained focus (and profit) and was soon positioned to take advantage of a crucial opportunity.

The Art of Communicating With Information: Information Design

Posted By: CJ

 

“Everything can be explained to the people, on the single condition that you want them to understand.” ― Frantz Fanon

In no other time in history have we enjoyed such unprecedented access to information from any source, anywhere around the world, anytime we need it.

No longer are we limited to the information we can physically find in the offline world. In this increasingly technologically-advanced world, we are only limited by time, space, need and creativity.

Yet the downside of living in this information age is that we are also constantly inundated by information. Email, blogs, websites, mobile devices, ads, TV, radio, social media etc.. But quantity does not necessarily mean quality – that’s where information design comes in.
