  • The Emotional Roller Coaster For Boomers With Aging Parents
    Monday Jan 23, 2017

    In celebration of the new year, a group of my Boomer friends sat around the fire, chatting over a glass of wine. The topic that dominated the very passionate discussion wasn't politics or sports - itwas what to do about Mom and Dad. Nearly all of the friends around the circle were either going through or had gone through some experience of dealing with a deteriorating health situation or thedecreasing ability of a parent.

  • This Chatbot Therapist Is Goofy But Helpful 
    By Nick Douglas - Saturday Jun 10, 2017

    I’m very bad at processing my feelings alone. If I don’t want to spiral into anxiety, I need to process with a conversation partner: my wife, my friends, my therapist. But what do I do with all the bullshit little feelings that aren’t worth draining someone else’s time? I’m excited to try offloading this emotional…

  • Great Email Experiences Require New Thinking
    Monday May 1, 2017

    The other day, a friend sent an email saying she had declared email bankruptcy. With one mighty click and a mass email explanation, she accomplished the unthinkable: deleting all messages in order tobegin anew at inbox zero. The irony wasn't lost on my overcrowded inbox, but when I received her message, the email marketer inside of me gulped. How many relevant offers - offers my friend actuallywanted to engage with - had just been obliterated?

  • Feeling Special
    Friday Apr 27, 2012

    Every day, social games are enabling players to express themselves in subtle but powerful ways. By sharing the achievements we earn and challenging our friends to beat our scores, we arebroadcasting elements of our personalities and hoping our friends take notice. Brands are taking notice, too, and are starting to deliver the types of experiences in social games that players willrelate to and want to share.

    We all love to feel special -- and  we love when others feel we’re special. Being smart, funny, and attractive isn’t much fun when nobodynotices, but society frowns upon brazen status updates of “Hi,friends! I’m smart, funny, and attractive!”

    On some level, this has made sharing the content we consume into ameta-game where the goal is to bring our friends’ perceptions of us closer in line with our own ideal self. Our friends are broadcasting signals about their own self-image all the time, hopingthat we’ll take notice. Posting a link to an article says: “I care about this issue.” Posting a movie trailer says: “I relate to these types of stories.” In everycase, our friends are saying: “Maybe you didn’t know this about me, but it’s true!”

    Social games are a powerful way of engaging with consumers, because they inviteplayers to express themselves through their actions. Our high scores are a public declaration of our investment in a specific game; our achievements, a travelogue of our experiences and the actionswe’ve taken. Some of the most successful games even let us show off real-world skills: our artistic prowess in "Draw Something," our genius-level vocabulary in "Words with Friends," or ourrhythmic mastery in "Rock Band."

    Personal Expression and the Brand’s Message

    The first branded social games were simple, taking a successful formula andapplying a branded coat of paint. The forms of self-expression they enabled for players rarely amounted to more than “I like this brand!” or “I’m playing this game!”These games were limited by their ability to enable player expression.

    Today, a new wave of branded social games is delivering more diverse opportunities for players to share. In "Marvel:Avengers Alliance," players create their dream team of superheroes and can help friends unlock characters for the perfect team. The message they share is “This is my team, suited to mystrategy, and made of my favorite characters.” This message is more personal than a simple “I like the Avengers,” and prompts more conversation amongst the player’s friends-- validating not only their choices within the game, but an association with the brand  as well.

    Another game with a movie connection, "The Hunger Games Adventures," lets playerscustomize their avatar with options that are suspiciously similar to fan-favorite characters from the film. Players win because they get that special feeling of creating something cool for theirfriends and fellow fans will appreciate -- and when fans are sharing branded content with their fans, the brand wins too.

    Players want to show off what makes them unique, and will seek outthe games that empower them to do so. We’re all guilty of gaming narcissism. The best thing brands can do is embrace that by creating experiences that players will love. Every person hasaspects of their personality that they feel go unnoticed. Give them games that make people take notice, and they’ll take notice of your brand’s message, too.

  • 5 things to do before giving an old iPhone or iPad to your kid
    By Ben Patterson - By Ben Patterson - Friday Jun 9, 2017

    Like it or not, little kids love iPhones and iPads. They love to look at them, they love to tap and swipe the screen, they love playing iPhone games, and most of all, they love watching videos on them. (“Curious George” is my daughter’s favorite—for this week at least.)

    Giving your little ones a hand-me-down iOS device is an easy way to satisfy their desire for a screen of their own—my kid is the proud owner of an iPhone 3GS and a third-generation iPad.

    That said, you shouldn’t hand over your old iPhone or iPad without doing some kid-proofing first. Read on for five ways to prep an aging iPhone or iPad for your youngster, from wiping your data and setting up a child’s iCloud account to blocking web access and keeping her from racking up in-app charges on your credit card.

  • How Your Thinking Impacts Your Fundraising and Your Life
    By Gail Perry - Friday May 5, 2017

    Does your mindset really impact your life - and your fundraising results?

    I'd suggest that your thinking has tons to do with how your life rolls out.

    I co-presented this topic earlier this week at the AFP International Fundraising Conference with master fundraising gurus Lori Jacobwith and Marcy Heim.

    We had a blast pulling together our own personal mindset management tips to share - things that have helped us survive the bad times and ultimately flourish.

    I have to say I was quite impressed with our audience's reaction to this session.

    It's a bit "woo-woo" for all the straight-laced fundraisers at AFP.

    But everyone seemed to really enjoy it. A few people shared with me later that our session helped them pivot to a more positive place. (hurray!)

    Here is a bit of our presentation:

    How your thinking impacts your life and your fundraising results.

    1. You CAN change your thoughts.

    It's important for you to simply acknowledge that your thinking impacts how you FEEL inside.

    Where do many feelings come from? From thoughts that generate an emotional charge.

    If you are thinking happy, positive thoughts, you will find that you'll feel much happier.

    And if you are thinking sad or depressed thoughts, you'll find yourself sinking lower and lower into pessimism.

    If you are really aware of your thoughts - then you can change them.

    Think of a light switch - if a thought wanders into your mind that is unhappy, critical or diempowering, try saying to yourself -

    "Nope, I'm not going there."

    Try blocking it off and make yourself switch to something more positive.

    I keep little affirmations taped to my bathroom mirror.

    So every morning, I see cheerful reminders:

    "People love me when I am myself." (Hay House)

    "Today I spend lots of time thinking delightful thoughts."  (Hay House)

    “Joy is what happens to us when we allow ourselves to recognize how good things really are.” (Marianne Williamson)

    And I'm glad to brush my teeth looking at such positive thoughts. It's a nice way to begin and end the day!

    Take away: Pay attention to your thoughts, and make them as positive as possible.

    2. The Gratitude Game

    Have you ever noticed that when you start simply appreciating the things around you, that you feel better?

    If you want to instantly put yourself in a mindset of well-being and satisfaction, then try the Gratitude Game.

    Here's how you play it:

    Get a partner - your spouse, colleague, child or friend.

    Take turns saying out loud - something that you are grateful for.

    Go back and forth, sharing these happy thoughts.

    We played this game with the entire audience at the AFP Conference last week. People paired off, and just took turns sharing their gratefulness.

    You should have seen everyone's faces!

    Expressions changed. Smiles appeared. Happiness was everywhere. I was stunned at the transformation of people's faces.

    Last Thanksgiving, my family and I gathered around the dinner table. After saying grace, I suggested that we all take turns sharing something we were thankful for. We ended up going round and round, over and over, with each person sharing an appreciation.

    Wow! It might have been the happiest moment of the entire weekend!

    Check out this interesting article: 31 Benefits of Gratitude. It has links to many scientific studies about the benefits of this practice.

    3. Forgiveness as a Mindset Practice

    Forgiveness means letting go of grievances.

    We all have people who have hurt us. Situations that happened in the past that still ache and hurt.  Even health issues that continue to pester us. Can you let this all go?

    This practice is difficult!

    That's why they call it a "practice" - you have to practice it over and over!

    You could consider forgiveness as a spiritual practice. That's how I embraced it.

    The sages say that keeping anger festering against someone or something only hurts yourself. It doesn't hurt the other person.

    Self-forgiveness too!

    My own forgiveness practice has helped me forgive myself for many things. I've become easier on myself.

    We all have that inner critic who is "our own worst enemy." Well, if you practice forgiveness, it's easier to shut that mean inner voice down. :)

    The benefit of equanimity.

    Something else good comes out of this practice - you are better able to let go of things and people, and situations that rankle you.

    You develop more of a sense of equanimity, easiness and calm about life. You can take the ups and downs with a bit more of an emotional cushion.

    We all want to feel calmer, more peaceful. We all want to find happiness and joy.

    If you do, then start within. Cultivate your thinking and your attitudes, just like you are planting seeds.

    These practices are NOT easy, for sure.

    They take years, and even lifetimes!

    But they can make you a far more pleasant, positive and happy person.

    And then career success comes more easily. You become a person whom others want to be around. A person who is respected. A person who radiates an energy that helps others feel good.

    I don't know about you, but that's where I aspire.

    If you want to change the world, then you have to work within as well as without.

    I totally believe that positive emotions within help bring about positive situations.

    And this practice has certainly worked for me!

    BOTTOM LINE: You CAN Control Your Mindset - and Impact Your Life AND Your Results!

    What has been YOUR experience with mindset practices? What's worked for you? I'd love to know!
