Do you need a pick-me-up today, this video will make you feel good and bring a smile to you.
Picture this… two large groups of people running amok and tossing and kicking a ball around, while they tackle each other to the ground, and hold on to each other as they push and shove the other group… basically running them over. And on the sideline you, as a “fan”, are supposed to be cheering and offering support… but for what?
When we first started dating, Pat was a part of that scenario… he was playing Rugby… and I was there to “cheer” him on. But I guess I didn’t quite make my presence known on the sidelines, and Pat asked… “Why aren’t you cheering me on? I can’t hear you out on the field.” My reply… “I don’t know what I’m supposed to be cheering for.” I really didn’t understand the game and couldn’t offer a lot of support… at least not anything that would make any sense.
Later that night at a Rugby party (two words that are synonymous with each other) a new womens’ Rugby team was recruiting for players. So Pat had a brilliant idea… why don’t I try out for the team? Even if I don’t like it, at least I’ll understand the game and be able to both enjoy the game more and offer Pat support from the sidelines.
So I signed up… and for the next six years both Pat and I had a wonderful time playing a very cool sport while supporting each other along the way.
Support and actually understanding where the other person is coming from are, in our opinion, two critical aspects of a great relationship… whether in a marriage, family, friendship, tribe or community.
Being that social media is a crucial part of tribes and communities, we’ve put together this quick poll to collect your thoughts on your experiences with social media. We would appreciate your input
As discussed in the TSA Webinar…
Thank you for your feedback! Hey, if you would like to elaborate on your answer, then by all means add that in the comment section below.
Support and understanding is a huge part of what a tribe is all about… and the tribe that we support and where we receive support in turn, is Tribe Syndication Association (TSA). You can find them HERE.
Thanks for participating in our little blog poll… and we look forward to hearing about your experiences and challenges in the realm of social media.

This is video #2 in the “Did You Know” series by Karl Fisch & Scott McLeod. This video was originally posted to YouTube (in June 2007), but has become very popular with over 3 million views.
This is a very inspirational video by Dr. Randy Pausch when he appeared on the Oprah Winfrey show. It made us hug our kids just a little harder before bed.
- Always be dreaming… never lose that spirit. “Experience is what you get when you don’t get what you wanted”
- The brick walls that are in our way are there for a reason, to let us prove how badly we want things.
- Remember the importance of People vs. Things
- Decide if you’re a Tigger or an Eeyore. Never underestimate the power of having fun.
- Work & Play well with others.
- Show gratitude.
- Don’t complain, just work harder…
If you lead your life the right way… the dreams will come to you.
On a very sad note, Randy Pausch passed away on July 25, 2008. His energy and aliveness will be missed.
Like most everyone else online, you have a blog. And on that blog you get some comments. Some people get what would be considered a lot of comments, and some people get only a few (or maybe none).
Consider this… the people commenting on your blog are not the only people who have visited your site. Other people have stopped by, and for some reason (usually unknown to us) have chosen not to leave a comment. There are so many people who read blog posts, get what they want from it, and move on (the silent majority).
So how do you capture the attention of those who usually pass on leaving a comment, enough to engage them into what you are saying, so they feel compelled to comment?
Here are some of our suggestions:
1) Make your information relevant. If a person feels connected to the information, they will be more compelled to leave their input.
2) Stir up a little controversy. People love to comment on something they disagree with or have a strong opinion on.
3) Call to action. At the end, or anywhere else in the post, give them a call to action (leave a comment, participate in a poll, watch a video, etc.). The more things they actually “do”, the more likely they are to leave a comment.
Basically… get them involved… if they feel included in what you are up to, they will be more inclined to leave you a comment… and end their silence.
