Socialize and Create something special with like-minded people. Building Community is the foremost way to engage your clientele. Everybody has an interest or specialty to share and together we make a strong organization. The hive mind concept has proven to be overwhelmingly strong and successful versus the old predict and command structures of dinosaur organizations from the 1950’s. The modern mindset is no longer conducive to those outmoded relics and those that are left are quickly going out of business.

A Sweeping Panorama
It is often with a sense of irony that we see oblivious pedestrians lost in their smart phones or youngsters at the schoolyard texting one another but not interacting face to face.
It is easy to lose sight of the fact that we are peering into that tiny little screen to get a picture of a larger, more connected world. These are the telescopes of the modern world giving us a glimpse into life on distant planes.
Everybody wants in on Social Network media nowadays but not everybody has mastered Social Protocol. Being obnoxious in the electronic network is bad for business and personal branding.
Social Network mastery is crucial to success in the contemporary arena, whether it’s for conventional business or in pioneering the new-enterprise of the free-agent journeyman.
Personal Desktop Globality
We live in marvelous times where entire publishing companies are run inexpensively from a portable laptop computer.
In this age of avatars and personal branding, there is no limit to the personal agency of success in the social domain. Books are written and published, stores are administrated and global supply chains are enacted right from the fingertips through the personal computer.
And more: the expansion of ideas and innovation are readily spread through blogging and memetics. Every conceivable manner of information is aggregated and available for free.
This gives every individual citizen the opportunity to become a thought-leader in her own domain; to the betterment of our whole society.
Be the consolidated personality behind your own syndicated publishing network.
Aiki Principles are Universal and Harmonious. Aikido is the Way of Aiki.
The Aiki Way was originally intended to remove barriers that prevent harmonic cooperation in humanity but even at that, in the early days there was disharmony.
But I have seen much happening lately in the way of healing; old resentments and divisions are being healed and previous sectarians are coming together as allies.
This is much needed too. If you look around at politics and society these days, you will see much antagonistic polarization. Rude behavior is a social epidemic.
In the ancient Greek City-State, there were those whose civic responsibility lay in hosting genial diplomatics with outside agencies. This was for the purpose of facilitating benevolence and productive exchange between the ‘hometown’ and the outside world.
These agents of benevolent exchange were known as the proxenoi (pro, meaning ‘for’, and xeno meaning ‘others’, plus a little ‘oi’ on the end to pluralize ‘folks who something’…) and were generally well-respected and considered essential to social well-being.
How different it is in today’s political climate where we overtly abuse and disrespect our international neighbors; seeking to overthrow governments and wreak misery upon their people. It is the antithesis of goodwill and international fellowship.
This has carry-over effects on our own society where we begin to treat even our own citizens as undeserving. Once habituated to closing the door on humanity, we suffer collective ‘hardening of the arteries’ and ‘heart disease’ becomes a national epidemic.
The early history of our nation relied heavily upon robust international participation. Proxenoi is as American as Fireworks (Chinese) and Liberty (French Revolution). Of course we export plenty of positive innovation, too!
Think about it: exchange and interaction are the mechanical essentials of business and a prosperous economy. Peace and international diplomacy are the true keys to wealth and prosperity.
