pretty people know pretty people

this is a synergy effect which probably can be explained by psychologists but in my case is based on observation of others.

how can this synergy effect be used to the advantage of creative minds? the synergy effect of good looking folks probably can be explained by first intuition. we would usually not mistrust not a person that we are alike. but today's global communication is (unfortunately awefully lot) online on a variety of plattform, social media and alike. so it might be even more important to present yourself in good light.

a couple of questions arise:
is this attitide too superficial? should we always give a profile a second look? do we have the time for that?

what other methods are there to connect? (online conferences with more than 20 participants?)

whats your thought on this?

once again, truly global

i am pretty sure everyone has heard about and/or seen the KONY 2012 video (if not, watch it here it caused a huge wave of shocking about the actions of LRA, amazement (about the powerful movement of the organization "invisible children") and other emotions but what amazed me even more was the wave of reactions to the 30min- clip. people from all over the globe immediately posted their views on the topic and on the video (how it simplifies the problem, how outdated it is). this is, once again, truly a sign that we live in an era of instant action/reaction. time is calculated in fb status updates, twitter feeds, youtube vdo uploads, blog entries. not seconds. the thought of hours has vanished without being noticed. see the links below if you would like a insight of some of those reactions.

in case of emergency

its those situations you know if people know their job well or are experienced in what they are doing. whether its a medical doctor, executive of an undertaking or your cleaner around the corner when you spilled some nasty sauce over your favorite shirt.

routine and work you grow into might be dangerous because you might lean back and expect business as usual. instead you should try grow
out of routine. use routine and business as usual situations as a foundation to stand out.
