You Can’t Be 100% Motivated And On Fire All The Time So Stop Trying To Be.

Right now, I’m not feeling that motivated. In fact, I haven’t felt very inspired or motivated all week. Given that motivating and inspiring others is my passion and it’s what I do every day, you’d think my career was over. You’d think maybe I have no more positivity left in me.

Even the most inspirational people in the world have times when nothing happens.

I recently watched Gary Vaynerchuk give advice to a young teenager. The teenager said:

“Gary, my girlfriend broke up with me and a relative just died. The last two weeks are hell.”

Gary took a few deep breaths and you just knew he was going to say something epic – and he did.

He said to the boy “Two weeks of lows doesn’t define the rest of your life.”

 

We’re all entitled to be down for a bit.

What I learned from Gary is that we are all going to have times during our life where nothing sticks.

In the last few weeks, I’ve missed several great career opportunities, had a lot of rejection, seen a slump in shares/likes on some social media platforms and had some personal challenges.

All of this is normal.

 

What’s not normal is what you see online.

That’s the real point here. What is normal has been overshadowed by all the self-help, success talk that happens online 24/7. We’re being bombarded by it and we think we have to be motivated 100% of the time.

If we have a day when we’re not inspired, we think something is wrong. In my case, given my profession, it’s even harder. There’s this stigma that I have to be some perfect human being to do what I do. That’s BS.

It’s normal for anyone you admire and even your heroes to have low points or long periods of nothing – that’s the actual norm.

The highlight reel you see online of the people you follow is what’s not normal. No one lives life like how we see people living online.

The cameras are only with these people of influence some of the time. What you didn’t see was them taking a dump or having an argument with their partner.

All you saw was a highly edited success reel of what they wanted you to see so they could send you to a landing page, put up a payment wall and monetize you. That’s what being motivated 100% of the time told them to do.

You can’t blame them entirely.

What the internet really needs is more of the truth. That is, more people talking about what goes wrong, more people documenting what’s really happening.

In simple terms, the internet needs less perceived perfection and success, and more of what’s real like disappointment, f*ck ups and challenges.

 

Not being motivated is where it all happens.

The opposite of what we’re led to believe is true. It’s during the moments of zero inspiration, bugger all motivation and low points that we discover who we are. It’s in our weakest moments that our strength, resilience and courage are built.

What I’ve learned during my recent low moments is that if I can handle this sh*t, then I can handle anything.

“Motivation comes from eating crap for dinner every day of the week and still persisting with your goals”

I’m writing these words today and not really feeling like it. It’s the art of doing even through the tough times that allows me to have a 60-second highlight reel on social media that makes me look like a freaking god that goes viral all over the internet hourly.

My success highlight reel looks very impressive and it sounds fantastic during one of the speeches I give. In job interviews, it really helps. When I pitch for business, it gives me credibility.

Our success highlight reels look freaking phenomenal but it’s 0.99% of the actual story.

If humans are motivated by storytelling, then let’s start telling the real story.

We’re not f*cking motivated 100% of the time so let’s stop pretending we are. Cheers to the moments when we feel like dirt and keep going.

 

Then everything changes.

What do I mean? This week I have no motivation but I already sense that next week is shaping up to be a big one. I find out about a number of life-changing opportunities.

Knowing I could get through a tough week and be cool to keep inspiring gives me hope. That hope translates into strength.

Next week could be a disaster and these so-called life-changing opportunities could all amount to a mound of dust and broken dreams. But because I survived the tough times I know I can excel during times when I plateau, go backward or even experience massive growth.

“It only takes one moment for everything to change and before you know it you’re 100 steps ahead of where you thought you’d be”

 

Quit the game.

The game of endless success. The rat race that is showing how perfect you are.

Show up with your best self. If that best self is 1% motivated or 100% motivated it doesn’t matter. The fact you showed up and got through the quicksand of life is all that counts.

Sometimes that struggle will look like winning an Oscar and other times that struggle will look like pissing your pants.

Take a step back and see the bigger picture.

No one (including me) needs to or is, motivated 100% of the time.

You don’t need to be either.

Motivation with personal development

How To See What You’re Truly Capable of Becoming And Then Becoming It

I have an opportunity right now to do something that will propel my life and career to a whole new level. It will take me from behind the keyboard and into the spotlight of critics, people with a lot of power, people I admire and the masses.

It’s a dangerous crossroads in a lot of ways. There’s a lot that could go wrong. Normally I am full of belief, but in the last few days, I’ve had my doubts.

Maybe I shouldn’t aim so high so quickly. Maybe I will get distracted from what I really love doing. Maybe I don’t have the skills just yet.

What you’re hearing here is the thoughts of a stock standard, off the shelf, pink brain that was designed hundreds of years ago for a different purpose.

None of these thoughts are valid unless I accept they are.

Seeing what you are capable of becoming requires a few key steps. Then becoming it is the hardest part.

Here’s how to see what you can become and then actually become it:

 

Believe first.

“This is not gospel talk. I didn’t pull this one out of the pages of a hymn book. Until you can see what you are able to become, no one else can see it”

There’s an element of visualization required here. Ask yourself the question “What if there were no barriers and I could achieve anything?”

I want you to assume this is the case. To see what you are able to become you must see it first without barriers, negative thinking, and outside opinions.

Once you can see what you can become, you then have to start believing. That requires you to see a positive outcome and have the courage to dare to do something phenomenal.

Believing first requires a degree of ignorance. In a way, I suppose you are ignoring logic. You are being somewhat irrational and not using common sense. You’re using belief to see a future version of yourself that achieves something meaningful to you, and to those who are inspired by your work.

 

Make it really big.

The next step is to dream really big. Our mind often constrains us and forces us to focus on what we’ve done in the past as the basis for what we can become in the future.

The stupid thing is that past results don’t necessarily predict the future. If that were true, we’d all bet on the stock market based on what has happened before and we’d be millionaires sipping mojitos off the bar of our luxury yachts.

Sea Surfer Girl

Making your dream really big is an art. Your imagination that has been mostly switched off since you were a child and the creativity that has been sucked out of you by society needs to be reignited for the dreaming element of your mind to be turned on again and lit on fire baby!

If you aim really high and think you can deliver a speech in front of 50,000 people and then you fall short and deliver an inspiring speech in front of 2000 people, have you really failed?

The obvious answer is no. At least you got out of your warm bed and took a chance. Maybe there were a lot of seats empty but you at least influenced one person in a positive way.

“Giving it a shot is half the game of life”

 

Disconnect from the result.

Being fixated on the result stops you from ever taking the first step. I’ve been so focused in the last week on whether I can deliver and whether I have the experience to do something audaciously big that I didn’t take action.

I was blindsided by fear even though I know far better than my own body.

Fearless Motivation

Fear has been the thing that nearly ruined my life and prevented me from typing these very words. In some ways, it’s because I can smell the perfume of fear and see it a mile away with my Superman’s eyes, that I’m able to see what’s really going on, not only in my life but the lives of others.

Never giving it a go is a far bigger failure than trying something and not succeeding. Not taking a chance and not risking it all for the person you’ve always wanted to become is something you’ll regret for the rest of your life.

Right up until the day of your death you’ll regret not knowing what could have happened if you saw what you were capable of, took a moon-shot opportunity and became that person.

“Regret is far worse than failure will ever be”

 

Be okay with not knowing a hell of a lot.

Part of the battle of seeing what you can become and then becoming it is that there is a lot you won’t know. The person I want to become in the coming weeks and months, and the opportunity I’m scared to say yes to has a lot to do with the core issue: I have no idea whether I can deliver on my promise.

I have no clue if I am this person that people think I am on the internet. Do I really inspire people? Or do I get inspired by other people and use that as fuel to pass it on?

We’ll never know the answers to these questions. We all have doubts and pieces to the puzzle of life that we can’t figure out.

In the end, there are only a few harsh truths:

  • –    You must say yes to big opportunities
  • –    You must not overthink every decision
  • –    You must not try to have all the answers
  • –    You must not continually play out every scenario in your head thus draining your energy

All you can do is have guts, belief in yourself, have the courage and become who you’re truly capable of becoming through relentless action.

“Our focus is our future and what we focus on will multiply in our life.” — David DeNotaris

Your ability to focus on a goal will increase your chances of achieving it.

think and grow rich by napoleon hill

When it comes to achievement, in your business or personal life, you must stay persistent to make it happen.

“Focus on the possibilities for success, not on the potential for failure.” — Napoleon Hill

The majority of people spend time focusing on what could go wrong instead of what could go right.

Don’t waste your energy on all the bad situations but instead use 100% of your focus in creating a desirable outcome. Your future success depends on it.

7 Amazing Focus Quotes That Will Help You Accomplish Your Goals

“The secret of change is to focus all of your energy, not on fighting the old, but on building the new.” — Socrates

Similar to the last quote, you need to focus on the future, not on the past. Everyone makes mistakes, learn from them and move on.

To create an epic future you can’t be looking in the rearview, dwelling on your mistakes.

Focus on building a new you. Each day is a new opportunity for something great to happen.

serena williams quotes

“I don’t focus on what I’m up against. I focus on my goals and I try to ignore the rest.” — Venus Williams

Big goals attract big people, like tennis superstar Venus Williams. If she spent her time focusing on how hard it would be to achieve as much as she has she would never be the success she has become today.

Once you get clear on your goals use a laser-like focus to work toward them.

“The successful warrior is the average man, with laser-like focus.” — Bruce Lee — Focus Quotes

Bruce Lee quotes

What separates good from great in life, business or sports is your ability to focus. The ones who are the most disciplined and focused will achieve more than someone who suffers from worry and doubt.

Once you make up your mind on something go after it with all your effort.

Use these focus quotes to take your life to the next level. Your ability to focus, in any area of life, will determine how successful you become.

Introducing Sherlock –  User Engagement Scoring for SaaS Businesses

We are super excited to introduce Sherlock – a new product from Space Pencil (the folks that brought you Kissmetrics) – to the market this week.

Sherlock is a user engagement scoring application built specifically for SaaS businesses – for whom user engagement is…well…pretty much the whole point.

We built Sherlock to help SaaS businesses finally wrap their arms around the elusive beast that is user engagement – to make it tangible and accessible. Oh…and actionable. Very actionable.

Sherlock is an analytics product with a purpose – to help make user engagement a centralized metric that drives action across your SaaS operation.

kissmetrics sherlock

WHY DOES SHERLOCK EXIST?

Sherlock went from a personal desire to a hack, to a prototype, to the product we just released over the course of several years. In many ways, Sherlock was a passion project – a scratching of our own itch – and in many ways, it is filling a need in the market that we can’t believe hasn’t been properly filled.

We build Sherlock for three main reasons:

  1. In SaaS, user engagement really matters
  2. There has never been a good way to measure and quantify user engagement
  3. User engagement is a metric that should be operationalized across an entire organization

 

1. In SaaS, user engagement matters — a lot. No, seriously, a lot.

This sounds like an obvious point, but one that cannot be overstated.

The entire SaaS business model is based on retention. Without retention, there is no SaaS business.

And retention is based on engagement. If people don’t use your product, they will cancel.

No engagement, no retention. No retention, no business. The formula is really not more complicated than that.

User engagement is also one of the true leading indicators for a SaaS business. As investor David Skok said in his great blog post on the topic:

“The goal of a SaaS CEO should be to increase the profit they make from each customer (LTV), and lower the costs in sales and marketing that it takes to acquire each customer (CAC). Measuring Customer Engagement is a key tool that will help you achieve that goal.
Honestly, outside of revenue, there isn’t a metric that is more important to a SaaS business than user engagement.”

In many ways, user engagement is the lifeblood of the entire SaaS business model. So…it’s something that should be measured and managed like any other KPI. However…

 

2. There has never been a good way to measure actual user engagement

I have been searching for a good solution for measuring user engagement since I started building SaaS businesses. It simply blew me away that there wasn’t an easy (and effective) way to truly measure and understand all sides of user engagement. It has been one of my greatest frustrations over the course of several SaaS businesses.

And yes, yes…I’ve used general analytics tools. I’ve tried almost all of them. But none of them really understood what I wanted. What I needed. While they held all my data, offered many different ways to slice and dice, none of them answered my question – quantifiably – on user engagement.

What I always wanted while running SaaS businesses wasn’t that crazy. I wanted to:

  • Know my best users/accounts
  • Understand what makes them great
  • Make more of them

Isn’t that really what every SaaS business wants?

For that to happen, user engagement needed to be quantified in a way that no general analytics tools could do. There needed to be a solution that focus on just this.

 

3. User engagement is a metric that can & should be operationalized across an entire organization

As a foundational metric that drives a SaaS business, each part of the organization should be using some slice of quantified user engagement to help drive their daily work. For example:

  • The product should use user engagement scoring to determine if their work building features is actually helping increase overall engagement;
  • Sales should be prioritizing their outreach to trial accounts based on the engagement level of those accounts (see the Product Qualified Lead model)
  • Customer Success should be using engagement measurement to drive upsells, save at-risk accounts, and give context for all support interactions.
  • Design should use engagement scoring to determine the best sources for user feedback.
  • Marketing should use engagement scoring to better target messages, identify potential advocates, and more.
  • Boards and investors should use user engagement measurement as a factor in future investment.

User engagement, when done right, can drive operations across the entire organization — this list is really just scratching the surface. A good engagement scoring platform will make it very easy to connect engagement data with the various tools used to drive your operations.

These are the three fundamental reasons why Sherlock now exists in the world. If you need more reasons, this post on the Appcues blog is a good reference.

 

HOW SHERLOCK WORKS

Sherlock works by giving SaaS teams the ability to create a custom engagement scoring model for their product.

The Sherlock journey starts by sending product usage data to Sherlock via Segment.com (right now, we only accept data from Segment).

Then a user simply weighs key product events (with a weight between 1–10) based on their importance to overall engagement. It looks like this:

sherlock overall engagement

All actions are not created equally. For every product, certain actions (or events) are simply more important than others.

You know this better than anyone, that is why Sherlock allows you manually set these weights. Once that is done….voila! The entire Sherlock product is populated from there and you will immediately be able to:

 

Discover users ranked by engagement

A full list of your users, ranked by their engagement level with the product.

sherlock top users

In Sherlock, all users get an engagement score between 1-100. This allows you to discover your top users in seconds (we promise, you WILL be surprised by the people driving engagement).

Also, uncover who is rising or falling, what they do and how their engagement trends over time.

 

Uncover Account-level engagement

Truly understanding engagement at the account level is incredibly valuable for SaaS businesses. I would argue essential.

sherlock active users

With Sherlock, you get a ranked list of your accounts as well as a list of all users on that account, by engagement level. This is incredibly helpful for many reasons, but especially when planning account management activities.

 

Track overall product engagement over time

On the dashboard, track total active users, the average score per user, as well as total product engagement over time. Nowhere else can you get data that informs you of the overall performance of your product over time.

sherlock score distribution

Compare engagement by segment

Create custom segments for different groups of users and compare their engagement.

sherlock segment

See which events are most engaging

Get a view of all the activities (events) from your product over time and see which events are actually driving more engagement.

average score of users sherlock

Ship engagement scores to all your important operational tools

The most important thing you can do with this quantified engagement data is to get it to make it accessible in the key tools that will allow you to take action on it. We ship engagement data to Segment, Intercom, Salesforce, and Slack.

sherlock integrations

Again, we are incredibly happy to be able to bring Sherlock to market. If you are running a SaaS company at any stage, I can’t imagine how you can run your business without a clear understanding of user engagement and all the benefits that come from that understanding.

This is what Sherlock is built to do and we feel very confident that it will bring a ton of value to your SaaS business

Artificial Intelligence Good or Bad

Benefits & Risks of Artificial Intelligence (AI) – Are we Ready for it?

We all heard scary stories: artificial intelligence is here to take our jobs and control the world and robots can turn against us. but what should we trust at this point? I think the best we could do is to research the subject and make our own opinion. That’s what I’ve done for you in this post. I have research articles about Artificial Intelligence from well know and trusted source and curated the content for you. And it all starts when you ask

Is Artificial Intelligence (AI) a Good or a Bad thing for our Future?

When you type, “Is artificial intelligence…” into Google to see what it auto suggests as possible searches you may want to do, the number one suggestion you get is “Is artificial intelligence a threat?” Followed closely by, “Is artificial intelligence dangerous?” Why all of this fear around this technology, which to date hasn’t harmed anyone? I think there are two reasons.

One, we have a long tradition of fearing the things that we create, that they’re going to rise up and destroy us. You can see this in stories like Frankenstein. You can even see this further back in Greek plays, like Oedipus, that had children killing their parents.

The second source for it must be popular media and entertainment, which shows all kinds of scenarios where artificial intelligence goes berserk or decides to take over. We all know HAL in 2001, and all of the rest of the examples. Of course, the truth is that that does not in any way indicate what is going to happen. That’s a logical fallacy known as generalizing from fictional evidence. Interestingly, one of the autofill suggestions is, “Is artificial intelligence capitalized?” Even on that, there isn’t widespread agreement, which just goes to show where we are in the science.

Source: gigaom.com

True Benefits & Risks of Artificial Intelligence

From SIRI to self-driving cars, artificial intelligence (AI) is progressing rapidly. While science fiction often portrays AI as robots with human-like characteristics, AI can encompass anything from Google’s search algorithms to IBM’s Watson to autonomous weapons.

Everything we love about civilization is a product of intelligence, so amplifying our human intelligence with artificial intelligence has the potential of helping civilization flourish like never before – as long as we manage to keep the technology beneficial.

This implies that AI per se since it does possess not an evolved innate drive (Will), cannot ‘attempt’ to replace humankind. It becomes dangerous only if humans, for example, engage in foolish biological engineering experiments to combine an evolved biological entity with an AI. Artificial Intelligence Benefits & Risks

The philosophy of Arthur Schopenhauer convincingly shows that the ‘Will’ (in his terminology), i.e. an innate drive, is at the basis of human behavior. Our cognitive apparatus has evolved as a ‘servant’ of that ‘Will’. Any attempt to interpret human behavior as primarily a system of computing mechanisms and our brain as a sort of computing apparatus is therefore doomed to failure.

Because AI has the potential to become more intelligent than any human, we have no surefire way of predicting how it will behave. We can’t use past technological developments as much of a basis because we’ve never created anything that has the ability to, wittingly or unwittingly, outsmart us. The best example of what we could face may be our own evolution. People now control the planet, not because we’re the strongest, fastest or biggest, but because we’re the smartest. If we’re no longer the smartest, are we assured to remain in control?

IoT in the Enterprise

IoT in the Enterprise: Who’s Doing it, What’s Happening and What’s Working?

Whether in the mainstream media, the tech press or in business circles, a lot has been made of the Internet of Things (IoT). But IoT is about a lot more than internet connectivity for far-flung machines and devices. It’s about collecting sensor readings and other data from those “things.”

Why is providing value from that data so important? A confluence of factors in technology and business has given rise to IoT’s utility and the fascination around it.

IoT device - Thermostat Technology

 

Trends Giving Rise to IoT

The combination of cloud computing, streaming data, Big Data analytics, artificial intelligence, and the broader prospect of digital transformation have created a readiness in the market for generation, consumption, and analysis of time-series data that is machine- and sensor-produced.

While many of us may think of IoT in the consumer realm, conjuring up images of home automation and turning lights on and off with our personal digital assistants, it’s the industrial realm where IoT really shines.

For the most part, it’s sensor devices found in engine rooms, factories, elevators, automobiles (both self-driving and conventional), turbines, farms, and other industrial settings, that are leading the charge.

Data Management

Sensors can report all types of conditions including temperature, moisture, pressure, the number of people in close proximity, the working order of a given component, or raw images and video.

Companies can monitor what these sensors are reporting, and can do so repeatedly, over very short intervals. While sensors used to just tell us if conditions were within a normal range, now they can do much more. Instead of just reading current conditions, this data can be saved and analyzed so that historical conditions can be correlated with certain phenomena.

Doing this facilitates the construction of predictive models so that certain sensor-reported conditions can be used to forecast specific phenomena. For example, patterns in the temperature of a piece of equipment may provide tell-tale signs of an impending failure.

And it probably goes without saying, being able to forecast such breakdowns before they happen can vastly reduce stress and revenue shortfalls stemming from lapses in operational continuity.

The above provides an operations-based explanation for why IoT is such a phenomenon, but what about the business reasons?

There are several. For one, companies are shifting their computing infrastructure from a mostly on-premises approach to a hybrid approach with some assets in the cloud. When analytics is one of the workloads that move to the cloud, things get teed up nicely for IoT.

Not only does cloud storage allow for arbitrarily large data sets, but it allows them to grow over time, even geometrically, as necessary.

MongoDB Database Solution

And since sensor data originates from remote locations, storing it in the cloud works well. There’s no reason to store data on-premises that doesn’t originate there.

On the other hand, data that does originate from and is stored on-premises may be needed in the analysis work, along with the sensor data. That means the analytics system in play must be capable of both blending data from different data sets and working in a hybrid on-premises/cloud modality.

In fact, modern cloud-based analytics systems can do this very well, further facilitating the IoT workflows.

Perhaps the most important precondition for IoT, though, is the yearning businesses have to work with data in real-time, acting on new conditions as soon as they arise. IoT data—and the patterns for processing it—are completely aligned with that principle, often referred to as a data-driven culture.

Further, because IoT sensor readings are formatted as time-series data (successive point-in-time recordings of the sensor readings), they lend themselves well to AI and predictive analytics, both of which work extremely well with time-series data, as the predictions are often just additional, extrapolated data points in the series.

All of these technological developments and breakthroughs combine to serve as the cradle for digital transformation, a broad term that describes the journey to data mastery and data-driven outcomes.

Data Virtualization

In fact, when the essence of IoT is considered, digital transformation is what it’s all about: getting real-time data on the operations of a business, performing immediate descriptive and predictive analytics on it, and acting on the results.

 

Background on the Survey

With all of that in mind, Gigaom surveyed a large group of Enterprise customers (300 Enterprise IT Executives) to learn about the IoT initiatives in their organizations.

Our goals were to determine the inspiration for IoT initiatives, the business units responsible for pushing them, the groups that provided the funding, as well as those units that led them.

And beyond the quest for general knowledge about which business units play which role, we wanted to know how IT (information technology) and OT (operations technology) collaborated for IoT initiatives.

IoT Smart Devices & Sensors

We also wanted to gain insight into the relative maturity of organizations’ IoT projects, and the organizations’ IoT maturity overall.

Also, as with all Gigaom surveys, we asked several categorizing questions—for example, size of the organization and the industry it works within—up-front, so that we could drill down to, and correlate answers to the other questions with these subgroupings.

Beyond learning who is driving IoT and what relative maturity of organizations doing IoT, we also set out to determine the scope of the projects, the general rate of success in their implementation, and how different companies implementing IoT approach vendor selection, as they proceed from planning to project implementation.

Like IoT itself, the overall goal of this survey was to discern things both descriptive and prescriptive. We wanted to see what customers have done, how much they’ve covered, how they’ve done it, and what impact these choices may have had on their success.

Once the spiders have done their job, the search engine begins the task you are most familiar with – delivering search results. I’m sure you search for information online all the time,

But let’s be real…

We all know that even though search engines like Google and Bing may show thousands of pages of search results, you probably never venture past the first page. This is because you assume whatever pages are ranked high for your search phrase, are more relevant to what you are looking for than pages that are ranked lower.

See, here is how the ongoing and difficult job of search engines looks like:

They have to scour all of the information on the constantly changing Web, and then list search results in order of most relevant to least relevant for the particular keyword, key term, or key phrase you entered.

Change just 1 or 2 words in the phrase you are searching for, and you can drastically change the search results. This is why keywords and phrases are so important in helping your content rank high, so you receive more relevant web traffic than if you have lower-ranked pages.
