They say if “to sell you don’t have to tell, but to sell well , you have to tell well..”  That prompts me into thinking, after all everything we do is about telling a story .

 

In his post Is marketing evilSeth lays a fundamental proposition on Marketing .

“Marketing is beautiful when it persuades people to get a polio vaccine or wash their hands before doing surgery. Marketing is powerful when it sells a product to someone who discovers more joy or more productivity because he bought it. Marketing is magic when it elects someone who changes the community for the better.”

 

Think of it, if you can tell a story that persuade people to “DO” (Lead India Campaign) or ask “India” to learn to teach the disadvantaged children in the rural and under funded schools (Teach India)

Or, bring that sense of Unity through they Free hugs or “Mile Sur Mera Tumhara” . I think its all about how we tell the story, how compelling can it get .

 

 

 Telling stories that change, inspire, and persuade people into believing and seeing that creative common vision is where our future is, for it is only when we take  collective stand ,that the hopes and dreams  morph into reality , for when we start to work, no destination however distant seems unachievable.

 

The future for something to believe in , and persist is infinite. Stick on !

Reading about the silk route years after I left the school and that history book, triggered myriad feelings in me.

 

So what was it about the silk route? Was it the trade of luxuries such as silk, satins, musk, rubies, diamonds, pearls, and rhubarb, while simultaneously serving as a conduit for the spread of knowledge, ideas, cultures, and diseases between different parts of the world in China, India, Asia Minor and the Mediterranean ?

 

Or was it something else all together?

 

To me the silk route symbolizes a story, and more than that the deep down human DESIRE of reaching out and connecting with its counterparts in different parts of the globe.


What is it, when a naïve user in a vastly unknown district of a developing country or a third world country sits at his terminal and reads about what’s happening round him?

Or what is when people come together, and form a group and are bonded by a social cause, a vision they share together and one they live on, breathe on, till it becomes a reality.


So, the so-called “Silk Routes” were not only conduits for silk, but also for many other products. They were very important paths for cultural and technological transmission by linking traders, merchants, pilgrims, monks, missionaries, soldiers, nomads and urban dwellers from China to the Mediterranean Sea for thousands of years.


A Tribe is about creating value, trust and earning the respect from other members of the community. It is about CONNECTING. It is about facilitating a conversation and collaborating, and a lot more than that.

According to Seth, the market for something to believe in, is infinite !


As I type this technologies such as Twitter, Blogging, Facebook, Triiibes is forever changing the way we communicate and connect and generate intangible value out of the relationship we carve with otherwise strangers.


And once we carve theses relationships, the bonding that arises, will not only facilitate an immense amount of learning ,but also add meaning to our survival , for we don’t and cannot exist in isolation, and to progress as a race together, we must not only add value to our own assets of information base, but also enrich the lives of those around us, by sharing what we learn .

I believe in intuition and inspiration. Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited, whereas imagination embraces the entire world, stimulating progress, giving birth to evolution. It is, strictly speaking, a real factor in scientific research.

As per wiki, Torque is the tendency of a force vector to rotate an object about some axis (or fulcrum or pivot). Just as a force is a push or a pull, a torque can be thought of as a twist. Torque is also called moment or moment of force.

 “Twist” here is a very powerful word, imagine you are not moving, because you are constrained, but you still see the different perspectives; just being where you are.

 

Torque is a measure of how much force acting on an object causes that object to rotate. In terms of the physical equation it says,” The closer you are to the hinges (i.e. the smaller ‘r’ is), the harder it is to push”

How this translates to your efforts and the DIP  is, that the first step is always easy, what is difficult is the next and the next and the last mile. Probably, that is why in this world of abundance there is scare scarcity. Confused?


Scarcity is something that is rare, but rare may not always bee remarkable. Nevertheless what is abundant is never remarkable. How can it be?

Do you stop down the road and say “hey that’s a cow”. You don’t. Because it is abundant (far more) ,but if it were a purple cow, you stop by and say, hey that’s a purple cow!

 

Now, Imagine if you could create something that goes beyond function, is beautiful and emotionally engaging, all this just being where you are.

This is the amazing thing about a Tribe, about social networking, and entrepreneurship.

Be there, do that !

Trust is like the air we breathe. When it’s present, nobody really notices. But when it’s absent everybody notices
