Must See Movie: The Intouchables

No Comments 11 November 2015

An unlikely friendship develops between a wealthy quadriplegic and his caretaker, who was just released from prison. This movie is in french and is on Netflix, with subtitles. You’ll notice it for the first 5-10 minutes but once the movie starts to develop, you won’t care that it’s all subtitles. This movie is so good, it’s even worth learning french for. Watch it.

Must See Movie: Hector and the Search for Happiness

No Comments 25 October 2015

Disillusioned with the tedium of his existence, psychiatrist Hector (Simon Pegg) confesses to his girlfriend (Rosamund Pike) that he feels he is a fraud for dispensing recommendations to patients who never seem to improve or get any happier. He considers breaking out of his lackluster routine. Summoning up some courage, Hector gives his starved curiosity free rein and embarks on an international quest to find the right formula to bring him joy and vitality.

Throughout his travels, Hector makes notes in a book and they become his lessons. They are:

Lesson 1: Making comparisons can spoil your happiness.
Lesson 2: Happiness often comes when least expected.
Lesson 3: Many people see happiness only in their future.
Lesson 4: Many people think that happiness comes from having more power or more money.
Lesson 5: Sometimes happiness is not knowing the whole story.
Lesson 6: Happiness is a long walk in the mountains.
Lesson 7: It’s a mistake to think that happiness is the goal.
Lesson 8: Happiness is being with the people you love.
Lesson 8b: Unhappiness is being separated from the people you love.
Lesson 9: Happiness is knowing your family lacks for nothing.
Lesson 10: Happiness is doing a job you love.
Lesson 11: Happiness is having a home and a garden of your own.
Lesson 12: It’s harder to be happy in a country run by bad people.
Lesson 13: Happiness is feeling useful to others.
Lesson 14: Happiness is to be loved for exactly who you are.
Lesson 15: Happiness comes when you feel truly alive.
Lesson 16: Happiness is knowing how to celebrate.
Lesson 17: Happiness is caring about the happiness of those you love.
Lesson 18: Happiness could be the freedom to love more than one woman at the same time.
Lesson 19: The sun and the sea make everybody happy.
Lesson 20: Happiness is a certain way of seeing things.
Lesson 21: Rivalry poisons happiness.
Lesson 22: Women care more than men about making others happy.
Lesson 23: Happiness means making sure that those around you are happy

Watch this movie! It’s well worth your time 🙂

The Paradoxical Commandments

No Comments 08 July 2015

by Dr. Kent M. Keith

People are illogical, unreasonable, and self-centered.
Love them anyway.

If you do good, people will accuse you of selfish ulterior motives.
Do good anyway.

If you are successful, you will win false friends and true enemies.
Succeed anyway.

The good you do today will be forgotten tomorrow.
Do good anyway.

Honesty and frankness make you vulnerable.
Be honest and frank anyway.

The biggest men and women with the biggest ideas can be shot down by the smallest men and women with the smallest minds.
Think big anyway.

People favor underdogs but follow only top dogs.
Fight for a few underdogs anyway.

What you spend years building may be destroyed overnight.
Build anyway.

People really need help but may attack you if you do help them.
Help people anyway.

Give the world the best you have and you’ll get kicked in the teeth.
Give the world the best you have anyway.

Social Media Housekeeping #SMByyc60

No Comments 28 January 2015

This presentation was created for the Calgary Social Media Breakfast #60 on Friday, January 23, 2015 at Peloton Cycling. Thank you Donna for sponsoring and Martine for hosting!

It’s about revising your social media plan for 2015. The plan isn’t necessarily about changing your current strategy.  The plan is about renewing your strategy, creating good habits, and organizing your social media to ensure success.

The four areas being covered are: Brands, Networks, Privacy and Automation. I have included voiceovers to go along with the Prezi, which is embedded below.
