Going backwards from my list here is a recent tweet from @mashable Justin Bieber Fan Tribute Gets 200,000 Retweets -- Almost a Record - 9/27/12 And his tweet was this, "RIP Avalanna. i love you" This is a reference to six-year old Avalanna Routh, who died of cancer Wednesday. She had a publicized meeting with Justin after connecting with her idol on Facebook and was know as Mrs. Bieber. Even if you aren't a fan of Justin Bieber that is true fan love. I give him kudos for caring. RIP AR.
Another tweet from today starts like this, “A fiddler, a mandolin player, and a guitarist walk into a bar…,” no, that’s not the start of one of my bad jokes, but a meeting place for these bluegrass artists trying to teach business leaders how to perfect their communication skills. They are three experienced musicians perfecting effective collaboration on the fly with complete precision. There is a crucial need for diverse employees working together for the complete customer experience. You must learn about each other and augment and distill the new culture. While this is difficult to do in large organizations, with creative leadership you must do more that lead, you must also learn to play.
I’ll end this rant today with a quote from PEANUTS
Linus to Charlie Brown: I think you’re afraid to be happy, Charlie Brown… Don’t you think Happiness would be good for you?
