    #14 No, Stephan, I have never used "supportive technologies before to help my creativity" -- but that's just me. Moreover, I have never used an "article title generator" (ATG) for headlines -- nor do I plan it in the foreseeable future.
    Why? Because I love writing headlines and had a lot of practice as a professional journalist back in the day. That's why I also love Twitter, because media headline writing almost always means space constraints (or at least it did/does for traditional news media). This is especially true for newspapers, including digital versions of such -- like the NYT, WSJ, Wash Post, etc.
    Nevertheless, I certainly understand the ROI benefit of using an ATG, and perhaps one day I will use one or have others use it for me. But for now, I think that stifles creativity rather than enhances it. Further, it's also like cheating in a way. I think we lose out when tech replaces human creativity.
    Still, I see why those who write for professional online media might choose that option. This includes super bees like @John White, MBA for Inc. or Huff Post; @Javier ๐Ÿ beBee for Virigin.com; or @Matt ๐Ÿ Sweetwood for Entrepreneur, etc. However, editors do edit copy, particularly headlines. Thus, I think it all depends on who's writing for what type of media outlet. Does this make sense?

    Yes, @Gert Scholtz, and @Ali ๐Ÿ Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee, I love that sentence, as well. "Walking the forest, observe and imagine... sparks our creative senses and takes us away from the everyday hassles of life. Whether we take the shady path or the sunny path, we must be aware of the changing landscape as we continue our journey.

    Are the people in Australia at the bottom of the world because we have a conception called North, or are they walking on the top side of the world and we are the one's walking upside down self-corrected by gravity?

    I ask this because I could determine that in my life I have been to the top but what happens when I notice that my life is upside down while everyone else I find at the top with me see top as being top. If I am truly true when I am the only one upside down, I will have discovered at that very point that what society judges as being top is the bottom in reality.

    How can we live on a round planet and still ask whether we are on top or at the bottom? Is our desire for material existence so strong that we need this feeling of being on top? How sweeter is the bottom if it is a place that is real and how comforting is the top if it is place we imagine to be? Unless we are thoroughly grounded the words of Ecclesiastes are profound indeed "Everything is meaningless".

    @Ali ๐Ÿ Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee Because I am so fond of nature and of walking trials, this sentence had a special appeal to me: "We need to walk the forest, observe, imagine, experiment and search for the intricate relations not only among trees, but also with their ecosystems. As we do so we discover new facts and we find the landscape of our emotions changing. Our hearts reach a bifurcation point- a junction with many branches or roads. Each direction will take us to a different destiny. " Thank you Ali, I shall walk with a different awareness from now on.

    #10 This is a very positive respective dear @Sara Jacobovici. If the comfort zone is of reasonable duration then I agree with you. However; when people stretch their comfort beyond reason and needed "pausing" then problems start. If the comfort zone is for thinking and imagining the action comes next. If there is no action then the comfort zone is in reality comfort that isn't to be.

Your writing does move the reader emotionally, thoughtfully and through the flow of your ideas. I can not agree with your buzz more Dr. Ali and I can not say it better than this: "We need to walk the forest, observe, imagine, experiment and search for the intricate relations not only among trees, but also with their ecosystems. As we do so we discover new facts and we find the landscape of our emotions changing."

    #6 #7 Dear Gentlemen, @Javier ๐Ÿ beBee and @Ali ๐Ÿ Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee, allow me to perhaps re-frame the concept of comfort zone and the idea of rest not producing something like change or growth. Movement is key in living, changing and growing. If we get stuck, cease to move as a result of being in a "zone" or place that we are using to falsely protect us from whatever we are fearing, then we can not change or grow. Things don't happen "outside" this place, things happen once we begin to move. That could be in coming to the realization of where we are and what we need to do. This isn't outside the zone, we can still be in that zone and yet the magic can still take place. In this way, resting is not a cessation of movement. It is a time when we may physically not move, but we continue to be moved, by our thoughts, observations, assessments and decisions of what would be the next viable step for change and growth.

    nice insight sir @Ali ๐Ÿ Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee! when we may confront with manifold of paths, is it we solely responsible to opt for the path, not knowing what to be waiting for us? is it just mere adventure, or we may visualize a picture being reflected in our faculty? how come the available conditions impacted us and what degree to stimulate us to go for an opted path? exactly it seems to be pretty weird when we opt for a linear path, but that is perhaps the destiny of human beings to against nature! however, lovely intriguing post sir. enjoyed read and shared. thank you for the lovely buzz.

    #2 "in my life, some of them in a drastic way, and I have done it when my heart and my intuition have showed me the way". A great quote from your comment @Mamen ๐Ÿ Delgado. Truly impressive.
    I was on my peak of publishing research papers related to chemistry. At that time I changed my interests and I followed my new self. People forget that the top is risky as a small nudge may send us spiralling downwards. Even in business this holds true. When Kodak was on the top of cameras it failed to see the emerging new top of electronic cameras. Its success blinded her and where is Kodak now. Sometimes the darkness of the unknown is a better choice than the lightness of success.
    Mamen ๐Ÿ Delgado
    27/06/2017 #2 Mamen ๐Ÿ Delgado
    I am not sure if it is better to change direction while at the top of success or through failure. All I know is I have changed my direction many times in my life, some of them in a drastic way, and I have done it when my heart and my intuition have showed me the way. Nothing to do with rational decisions, deep thoughts about it or long nights without sleeping.
    It's been much easier, just my heart telling me the way to go...

    Truth fluctuates everywhere we find it. So we must look beyond the information to the agenda, there is always an agenda. The agenda is tied to a belief system. Belief systems are filters. The purity of truth never survives these filters. Truth is the core of reality. As information, it has the most potential and the most symmetry. Self organization occurs at the boundaries of chaotic systems. The outer boundary has the most variation or degrees of freedom, and the least significance, in terms of meaning.

    from outside view we tend to evaluate and also triggered to to go inside. 'i' never appear in small letter and thus it takes a lot of effort to make a distinct presentation, emerging itself as a brand, which may trigger others to go inside the brand and thus evaluate its value. naturally it requires courage to accept its brand value and acceptance across the community. however, lovely share. enjoyed read and shared. thank you for the share madam.

    Very pertinent exercise, @Sara Jacobovici. This identity process is complex when we try to simplify in order to succinctly and consistently grab the attention of strangers.

    Going through it myself has created a great deal of wordy stuff. And it takes work to prune away so that the right structure is created before we start to decorate for visitors.

    I love the tally of global improvement, @Chris ๐Ÿ Guest Cert.Prof.Acc.SA. I don't think I could manage the weather, though. I cry during the brief interlude we take from the rain. In the heat of those couple months, I really, physically crave the return of moisture in the air.

    I do especially resonate with the moral of your story - we are all just humans. The more we open up to travel and relocating; we cannot deny this basic fact. Shoot, it even manages to come across in these tiny comment boxes. We may not get along with everyone, in all ways, but we always should respect their humanity.

    What trips most people up @Gert Scholtz is believing you have to know the story from the start. Anything is a story, any sort of reportage, fiction or poem. If we think of "Alice in Wonderland," Carroll was pointing out the importance of NOT knowing exactly where you're going. Follow many paths freely, know there's a beginning and and an end. Everything in-between is up for grabs. I rarely finish an article the way I started. The beauty of writing is you're never confined (unless you write for others). Picasso once said: "I start with an idea, and end up somewhere else." Artists are simply those who let everything in and figure out what stays and what passes. Thanks for the post.

    #48 this is the challenge embedded in your comment @Louise Smith. You wrote "But we have no influence". Again, you remind me of ants in turbulent waters. Each ant alone will sink. However; by hooking to each other and forming a raft they float. WEakness is in working alone. I think small may generate a butterfly effect that will disrupt the climate of current businesses if they hook together.

    #16 This has happened recently in Adelaide South Australia ( http://www.abc.net.au/news/2017-02-08/sa-heatwave-forces-rolling-blackouts-angering-government/8252512 ) and was partly blamed on the lack of power generated by renewables at that time.

    But where are the renewable power battery storage systems ?
    Where is the advance planning to cope with this situation which often occurs in Australian Summer?

    In fact, it was the market operator, who runs the national electricity market, who didn't foresee the problem
    and generate enough power or turn on extra generators to cope with it in advance.

    Also the LNP in government used this to score political points by incorrectly stating that renewable energy is not sufficient.
    Again where are the renewable power battery storage systems ? Where is the advance planning?
    Whose responsibility is it ? Clearly the power companies do not care about the ordinary people and their businesses suffering as a result.

    I am trying hard not to believe that I live in a 3rd world country !

    I love the contrast you built up, @Chris ๐Ÿ Guest Cert.Prof.Acc.SA between a life of comforting tradition and that one phone call that sent you and your family into an entirely different future.

    I feel like we become more of who we are meant to be, when we step outside the well-trodden paths. Once we are habituated to a place, life tends to function on auto-pilot, especially when we are immersed in an entire community. That we are known so well is certainly a blessing, but can also be a bind from emerging into all that we are capable of.

    I am actively courting that revolutionary phone call right now. But for a contrary reason. I am feeling drawn to travel - the call of the road, as you know, in order to find that place that feels like the home I want to cultivate for the rest of my life. I am ready to negotiate the staying-put part of life. But the place were I can do my best work, contribute the most value is still a mystery to me.

    So a drive-about seems prudent.

    Excited to see what happens in your tale next!

    @Chris ๐Ÿ Guest Cert.Prof.Acc.SA Now that does sound like a big change: East London to Abu Dhabi. I am sure, although at times you miss the shores of the Eastern Cape, Abu Dhabi offers a rich tapestry of experience and opportunity for you and your family. Thanks you for the mention Chris, and for a music lover such as you, here is Desert Rose: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C3lWwBslWqg

    My Principle for Reinventing Life
    My Principle for Reinventing LifeI have been very curious about many things going on in my life recently (head, actually). I once again placed myself in a tough situation in my career. I feel like I reached a fork at the road to success and instead of moving forward I chose to...
