What’s Your Social Currency? When I started Heart@Work it began to as a Training company to bring an awareness of Kindness in our workplaces.
I started to write on the topic of Kindness, Thought Leadership and Social Good.
This past week, since I have been writing about relationships, I took a look at the various articles at HeartJam.com to see what I have already posted. I found five or more articles about Branding and Relationships, here is one that is really about our own Social Currency. Originally, I wrote this article April 2007.
After listening to Tim Saunder’s tapes, “Love is the Killer App,” everything seemed to jell for me. Like “Why I ought to adapt Kindness in my business?” or “Why is Love the Killer app?” You’ve heard of “Show me some Love?” I means share my content, tweets, show me some appreciation.
Kindness is a verb. It takes action to create the Peace, Love or Joy that we say we want so much in our lives. How much do we really want it?
We are all starved for Attention – yet who is paying attention to us? It seems people are all very busy doing life and then every once in awhile – time stops and life gives us an opportunity to think about what we are doing or what we want out of life. And how are we going to get the Attention we think we deserve.
