So, what’s your story?
How do you, stick in the mind?
All around us media often appears full of ‘stuff’ that’s intended ~ just for you ~ right at those ‘peak times,’ perhaps that ‘stuff’ hits you just before you jump in the car and head off to the office? Over the car radio or during lunch break, perhaps the commute home maybe?
Everywhere there are stories to stick in your face so that it’s stuck in your mind.
So, the way I see it being sticky can be useful if we intend to be successful in business life. Business/life. They’re closely aligned, right?
Think about how people remember you. What do they recall of you when next you catch up or more importantly when they meet up with mutual friends at the regular network soirée?
Being a witness to this conversation, would the conversation be something you’d expect? Are you being remembered as being the best that you can be?
The thing is, every interaction we have with someone leaves an impression and it’s sometimes a lasting one. So for me (I know this is also true for many of my close friends,) it’s important that MY STORY is a faithful representation of what others expect of me each time we meet up.
Why? Think of YOU as your own mini media outlet.
‘What?’ I hear you say.
Just hang on a minute, bear with me for a second …
It’s true. What kind of sticky are you? What stories do you conjure, what memories evoked, how do people see you in their life? It’s simply the same as that current ‘hot branded’ company vying for your time and attention even before you’ve ordered the best-ever morning coffee and … the cake!
Showing kindness on a regular basis is important. Agreed.?
Love? That’s a no-brainer for me also, but in today’s ‘circus’ of life … if we are to really embrace the power of relationships, affinity and trust let’s leave the right messages out there. Better still, let’s ensure our closest allies have every chance of passing on the definitive message of how YOU and your story should be remembered.
