Top Ten Reasons I should work for Hootsuite #11 – Sunday Night Dreaming

It has been a little while world of words.
Hope you all have been well, I have been.
While I struggle to re-engage with words with a purpose, here’s this. I spend Sunday nights when the city is asleep, daydreaming. I dream of the future solely and the shape of it, the people I’ll be around, oh the places I’ll go and of course the Lorax, wait what? It’s a good time for me, peaceful and full of hope for the coming week. In that spirit here are some songs that help me dream and some words that might help you. Inspiration is coming and I will bring it, for now let’s dream.

“Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you’ve imagined.”
Henry David Thoreau

“It takes a lot of courage to show your dreams to someone else.”
Erma Bombeck

“Dream as if you’ll live forever, live as if you’ll die today.”
James Dean

“Commitment leads to action. Action brings your dream closer.”

Top Ten reasons I should work for Hootsuite #4 – I Am Balanced Well

It is that special time again friends, gather round while Uncle Kayin keeps the fire going. In this twilight hour a time for a sharing has come upon us.

Are we ready?

I was thinking last night about the role of emotional stability in my life. Why I am so stable and why some people around me aren’t. Not looking at at anyone in particular but I have a few candidates in mind> Either way when we come together into each others real circle, a lot of really positive things happen, and sometime some thing less overtly positive. We clash, our egos get hurt, we hold grudges, we say things we don’t mean and then refuse to make amends for what we said. I was applying for a job before I knew that you were going to be hiring 100 people at Hootsuite, in my cover letter to another company I mentioned that I take responsibility for my actions. I heard back nothing from them so touting this attribute again to you may not be doing me any favors. However it is my belief that this may be quit and over-looked characteristic when staff you company or starting a new relationship. We mostly notice when people don’t take responsibility for their actions. When they try to shake of their influence on current events. I say what I’ll do and do what I say. For instance to Dave Olsen you asked me to email you so you could investigate me online. I didn’t do this. I have no linkedIn profile, even now I don’t. No excuses, I met you and the first impression you may have had of me a day afterwards was of someone who didn’t do what he said. I will and when I do I will email it to you. If I never ever hear from you you can count on the fact that you will receive and email from me. It is already done, I’ve just not send it yet. What I did, in between the time we met and the day after was create a blog and a twitter account to match, you may be reading it now. I wanted to separate myself from all the potential job suitors you have at your door, and thought this would be the best way to do it or if not the best certainly a way to do it. I try though to keep my word and acknowledge it when I don’t. I also have a life outside of work. Adventures with my son, my girlfriend and my friends. I take pictures.

I swim (now). I cook. I cook so well I may challenge AllieIsAlwaysHungry to a cook off.
I have seen the people in every area of my life that have no outlets, outside of work, they can have an obsessive focus, which can be professionally productive but socially corrosive. To counter this habit I am open to life. I laugh with and love, life and my family fiercely. To balance all the words in this post here are some links to things that I enjoy and keep me even.

I like to watch swimming technique Videos –

I love to watch The Wire –

I need to listen to John Coltrane –

I love to walk on Deas Island, in Delta

There’s more but that’s enough I’ve made the point I hope. I’m not just good with people, I’m good with myself. I try everyday to eat well, exercise, love, read, breathe, plan, think, relax, appreciate and share. I hope you are the kind of company that sees the value in that.

Thanks for reading
