.think .differently about recommendations and branding

Disney Institute keynote speakers

Letters of recommendation are typically superfluous, written by people who the applicant thinks will impress a potential client.

And often, the author has offered to write whatever the recipient would like them to focus on.

If you can’t understand this, it simply means you’ve never had to market yourself or your personal business.

Please don’t get me wrong, there are exceptions.

They’re rare.

And they are also difficult to tell apart from the orchestrated ones.

Common Sense, Not Common

Pushing The Envelope

You study leadership, don’t you? You read. A lot. You watch others, with the intent to learn two things:

  1. What works
  2. What doesn’t

The world is overloaded with wanna-be’s and imitators.

In today’s world, if you want to stand out, you need to do one of two things:

  1. Do what everyone else is doing, differently
  2. Do something no one else is doing

If You Could Only Pick One

Hey there, this is today’s second jungle jeff post. Leaving a comment is easy, and you don’t need to log-in to do it.

If you could choose only one, which would it be? #1 Be excellent at what you do, or, #2 Be the only one at what you do?

A Brand Called You

Who needs me to draw a map?

No seriously, I hope you’re getting this.  Hey, everyone is busy. You don’t think I know that?  Come on, I get it.

But do others get it?  There is never going to be a time when you will have time. It hurts to hear this, doesn’t it?

So now is the time.  And this is the place for simple, daily reflections on excellence. It has to be a daily habit, or it will never be excellent.

You can be very good, without a daily habit, but not excellent.

My whole point last week, spontaneously inspired by a ten-minute walk outside that Dallas hotel, was what Tom Peters calls: “A Brand Called You”. Others call it ,  “Me Inc”.

Don’t believe me?  Then click here to read an August 2007 Fast Company article from Tom Peters entitled, A Brand Called You.
