Word of the day: awareness

In Branding, Inspire, Leadership, Personal Branding, Philosophy, Positive Thinking, Word of the day on July 20, 2014 at 11:57 am

I haven’t done one of these in a while. But I’m currently writing a blog about mindfulness and the word ‘awareness’ is a theme through it.

So it’s only fitting that it becomes the word of the day.

Stay tuned for the blog. Meanwhile, the art of practicing awareness comes from within and self first.

Only by mastering the art of being aware of self can we then learn the art of being aware of others.

The adventure called life

In Creative, Inspire, Language, Word of the day on February 1, 2014 at 12:42 am

So it’s 2014.

I’m not one to make new year resolutions. I figure if you want to do something positive to change your life, you should just do it; you don’t have to wait for the start of a new year to do so.

But each year, I have a theme. And this year, this word pretty much sums up 2014 for me.

I hope it’s an amazing year for you, too! Happy 2014, here’s to adventure, love, and travel!

For it is those very things that inspire creativity. And may you continue to be inspired this year!

Word of the day: awareness

In Branding, Inspire, Learning, Personal Branding, Word of the day on October 3, 2013 at 3:25 am

Awareness is a powerful thing. To be self-aware is to know self through self-reflection. And through the eyes of others. How do we see ourselves? How do others see us? How do we want to be perceived? What is our footprint? And what is our presence?

Awareness is the first step of growth and learning. Only by being aware do we know what we know, what we don’t know, and what we need to learn.

Once we are self-aware, we can then be aware of others and those around us. It’s all about the world in you. Then you in the world. And what you do with that awareness, well, that’s entirely up to you.

Yes. Awareness is a powerful thing.

Word of the day: knowledge

In Branding, Communication, Copywriting, Creative, Grammar, Inspire, Language, Learning, Personal Branding, Word of the day, Writing on September 8, 2013 at 10:34 pm

They say, ‘The pen is mightier than the sword’ and that is true power. Knowledge is power. As they say.

But sharing knowledge is even more powerful. It marks a true leader.

I think. Don’t you?

Word of the day: hope

In Communication, Copywriting, Creative, Grammar, Inspire, Language, Personal Branding, Word of the day, Writing on August 12, 2013 at 12:24 pm

Perhaps one of the most beautiful words in the English language. From hope stems all things, creativity, inspiration, passion, compassion, value, even love.

So this one is a favorite.

The story behind the word of the day

In Advertizing, Branding, Communication, Copywriting, Creative, Design, Grammar, Inspire, Language, Word of the day, Writing on May 3, 2013 at 1:23 am

So I thought I’d write something about the whole exercise behind the ‘Word of the Day’ series.

For a few blogs now, I’ve merely taken a photo of a word (thank you, iPhone) and popped it up as a blog piece. Is this sheer laziness on my part? Have I run out of things to say? Or write about?

Au contraire!
