Kaizen Inspiration

In an earlier post I talked about inspiration and I would like to go back to this topic. In my analysis of this blog I have realized that the major thing it lacks is inspiration. This blog doesn’t know what its is, and neither does its readers!

I didn’t have a “personal brand” when I started my digital presence. I still don’t, but I’m getting there. Even though I haven’t made as much progress or as many connections as I had hoped,  I have learned that it takes more than 5 or 6 weeks to accomplish these things.

I was definitely not comfortable putting myself out there when I first started. But though the process I have learned: Don’t try be someone you’re not. Just strive to be a better person every day, in even the smallest ways and I promise you they will add up.

I recently discovered this theory called “kaizen” by the Japense. The idea is to strive for 1 % improvement everyday. It is the new inspiration for my blog (in case you haven’t noticed the changes). I have a sincere interest to study this concept further and apply it to my life, and document my findings through this blog in the process. Continue reading

It Gets Better Project

“Your life can be amazing. But you have to tough this period of it out and you have to live.”

I was catching up on Glee today ( I haven’t watched it in awhile, but I’m unfortunately sick and sat on the couch all day), and this Google Chrome commercial came on. This 90 second spot packed a powerful message.

The “It Gets Better” Campaign

Last September, gay rights activist Dan Savage launched this project and the It Gets Better YouTube channel to solicit inspirational and supportive videos to send much needed positive messages to struggling LGBT teens.

The Google Chrome Spots

The Google Chrome team put together a compilation  (using mostly celebrities)  of the uploaded videos to create this commercial.  Glee was an excellent place to air the commercial, as the characters and plot often deal with LGBT issues.

The Future of Commercials?

Its refreshing to see media giants such as Google embracing social responsibly and showing off their ethics.  This activism seems to be an emerging trend in commercials and the Google “It Gets Better” campaign is one of the best examples I have seen yet. The world may become a better place if this inspiration catches on!

Under Construction

After 6 weeks, I’m still not where I want to be with my blog and my personal branding process.

So, to give my blog new life, a am launching my new theme: Just Be You (only better).

There will be more to come very soon!

If you follow my blog, you may have noticed the format and theme has changed a few times. Please bear with me as I finish the construction of both my brand and blog.

Hello world!
