Re: Seven Simple Ways To Engage Your Facebook Fans In Three Minutes Or Less - http://johnhaydon.disqus.com/seven_s...
"Great Insite John! Too often my customers get hung up on creating high impact, high production content. I've been really pleased with how facebook.com/turningpointkc, a non-profit customer of mine, that is focused on resiliency programming for people and families of people who are dealing with serious illness, has been able to build a following and interaction through sharing simple inspirational quotes. Now we are working on simple ways to share people's stories. I had to work hard to convince them that simple status info can be very powerful as well!" - Tobin Truog

Re: Lazyfeed Gets Social, Interactive, With Real-time Remix - http://blog.louisgray.com/2010...
"Hi Louis, Thank you for the quick overview of the new LazyFeed. I have been setting up LazyFeed accounts as a way for my customers to "source" their blogs. I think this "update" looks more like a big bad makeover! I see value here in these updates, in a number of ways. One way, is that within any organization a team of people could help source content development. What else do you see as useful here? Thanks!" - Tobin Truog

Re: So What Stops You? - http://www.disqus.com/people...
"This comment may be a bit philosophical...but I just realized that when I am working hard, focused on what I do well, and therefore am happy...I am fearless about what comes next. Thing is...I have failed many times at stuff far less complicated than what I do now. So have you! So, the "what stops you" question is one that I think is deeper than a simple, "fear of failing." We each overcome that fear every day. I mean, I drive my kids to school most mornings. Today the streets were icy. What if I failed to drive carefully and we got in an accident? What if...What if... ? I think it is a deeper fear of suffering. Many of the tenets and ideas in eastern thought, particularly Buddhism resonate with me. There is one that I think is in play here. And that is the first of the Four Noble Truths in Buddhism that "Life Means Suffering." When I gave myself over to this idea, then I began to see that suffering and happiness are part of the same thing, sides of the same coin. One requires the..." - Tobin Truog

Re: When Real Time Is Not Fast Enough: The Intent Based Web - http://www.web-strategist.com/blog...
"Jeremiah, This is great stuff. As you say, many people can't keep up with the asynch web now. I see the challenges here as, 1) shortcutters - more people trying to skip ahead to the result without putting in the real live hard work it takes to have a real-time strategy, complete with authentic and effective community engagement. and 2) Adoption: I still get people wanting to write an "About us" page on their site, and they look at me like I'm a looney when I suggest that they kill that mindset about their site, and tell an ever-developing "about us" story using other tools not located on their site. So - real time and future web or pragmatic web or whatever is going another step altogether. I am driving that bus now...but I don't have many passengers!" - Tobin Truog

Re: An Escaping Mediocrity Self-Test - http://www.escaping-mediocrity.com/selftes...
"Ahhh Sarah.... Looking forward to today's post then! I would be interested to see if you have ever watched Kitchen Nightmares on BBCA. Every time I see the show it is a new lesson in: a) drop the BS you tell yourself about how great you are b) Find the ONE true thing that you do extremely well and c) then draw the line in the sand: "this is what I will DEMAND excellenc in, I will always do THIS remarkably well. This is such basic stuff when you write it or say it...but then why isn't everyone doing this? Why are there still iPhone App developers faking reviews? Thanks again for some good inspiration!" - Tobin Truog

"Sarah, A great list is forming here. I haven't read them all, but whenever I try to reset and "Escape Mediocrity" I do three things: 1) I go watch a few episodes of "Kitchen Nightmares" with Gordon Ramsey. I am not a huge fan of "Hell's Kitchen", but KN has inspired me so many times to stop accepting crappy things and situations in my business. Gordon's message of a) make it simpler and b) really get back to what you are passionate about resonates with me deeply. 2) I Quit. That is, I find several things to STOP doing that are holding me back. So stated in your format: Am I willing to QUIT doing the things that are keeping me from escaping mediocrity." - Tobin Truog
