I apologise for not consistently updating my end of the blog. I know Simon has been present this year. I’ve been grappling with change.

The above statement goes against what I believe and say about blogging. So, eating my own dog food!

How’s 2008 turning out for you?

We’re going through changes with iJump. We’re constantly evalutating who does what and why. Common sense I know, but it’s a very interesting juggle when your running your own business.

I’ve chosen to talk about change this year because social media is always a moving post. And so is life.

Personal lesson: Habitualisation

I decided before the end of last year to mentally make a few changes. New Years resolutions don’t work for me.

I decided I wanted to implement the following

  1. Go to the gym at least 3-4 times a week
  2. Cut out most of the naughty foods (you know what I’m talking about… don’t give me that look!)
  3. Make it a lifestyle

So far, I’ve learnt

  •       Change takes determination and stickability
  •       Everyone in your company needs to believe in the change
  •       Immerse your culture into experimentation
  •       Be a company that introduces your clients to future leadership

Social networking site

October 11th, 2007

This morning we met David Garratt, a christian music pioneer, teacher, international speaker, mentor and so much more. I listened with amazement as he tried to put to words a 22 year old vision he’s had in his heart.

Talking out your ideas, dreams, visions or goals is powerful. It’s even better when you’re surrounded by people who are going through a similar path.

As we start to flesh out what iJump is our path continues to connect with musicians, business people, organisations, groups who have the same desire: to understand and connect with their audience.

How do we begin? Let’s try exploring, playing and experimenting with the new platforms of new media.

Play can inspire us to think differently. Walt Disney was dedicated to play. He didn’t let criticism get in the way of his childlike imagination.

Don’t get me wrong – I’m not saying to be childish! But try and unleash your childlike imagination from time to time. You’ll be amazed how much your thinking will start to shift to new worlds of discovery.

At the end of our consultation David set up his social networking site, the only thing he needs to do is fill in his profile. The next stage is learning how to invite his friends.

The rest is like a rocket. It takes off into space, not knowing where it’ll land and who will visit.

iJump. Do you?
