Around My World in 5 Min or Less

The Unofficial Juggler and Charisma Forums for which I am an Admin for is taking a new direction and has recently been renamed as the Natural Game Forums.  Anthony “MyBirthdayPony” and I felt the change reflects more accurately the vibe that is being fostered there as members discuss openly the application of the Juggler Method, theApproach‘s VAC model, Vin DiCarlo‘s Dating Diablo and any other natural/direct game concepts.  If you like natural methods, you may also enjoy the compilation of articles that Direct Natural Game offers.

Last week, Jonathan Christian Hudson joined theApproach.  I find the move very interesting considering that he used to be the Business Manager for Charisma Arts.  I can only see this as a positive development for theApproach.  Here is the official announcement:

As I was browsing the internet, I came across this blog post on what being a Synthesist means.  Maybe I am completely full of myself, but I think it describes me pretty well 🙂  I feel that this is what I do ALL THE TIME.  What do you think?

A Synthesist is a person who embodies these characteristics:  He (I’m going to use the male pronoun for simplicity) takes disparate bits of information and weaves them to create something new. His role is to streamline and to simplify; to remove the cruft and clutter so that the end product is easily absorbable by the target human group.

The Synthesist’s role is to be a translator.

The Power of PersuasionA few friends of mine have been recommending that I read Influence: The Psychology of Persuasion by Robert Cialdini.  I have never gotten around to it because I never knew what the book was about.  I have other books I want to read first, but out of coincidence, I found a video of Robert Cialdini’s presentation at a Stanford Breakfast Meeting (you need to buy it if you want to watch it).  It’s actually quite good!  It talks about common concepts that are well known in the Seduction Community such as:  reciprocation, consistency (“yes” ladder), consensus (social proof/validation), liking/friendship, authority, and scarcity.  Cialdini calls compliance the desire for someone to say “yes” to you.  To me, that sounds awfully similar to the Compliance concept in the VAC model of attraction.  After a little bit of search (thanks Google), I found this blog which describes the use of “influence triggers” in the political realm.  If you don’t feel like reading the book itself, check the blog out.  It really did a good job at summarizing Cialdini’s major points.

While on the topics of books, I’ve discovered a website that provides a reading list if you wanted to gain a better understanding of business without attending an MBA school.  It’s called The Personal MBA.  Beyond the book list, it tries to give you a forum on which you can discuss the content of the books with peers.  This is a really interesting concept because I’ve always wanted to attend an MBA program but sometimes, I wonder about the cost-benefit of going back to school.  If I was to listen to Guy Kawasaki, an MBA program isn’t really worth it if I was trying to be an entrepreneur, but I do foresee the value of becoming part a business network if I wanted to follow the consulting route.

The funny thing is my buddy Darren/rev7 sent me an autographed copy of “The Art of the Start” by Guy Kawasaki.   In the front page, it now says:  “Khiem, kick butt!”  I’m definitely looking forward to finishing that book.  In the meantime, Darren has a fun post on how you can use random material to turn your old jeans into expensive designer looking ones.  This summer, he’s willing to do an internship in the L.A. or San Diego area until mid August.  If you are one of those lucky companies in marketing, print media or web design and need a talented graphic designer, please contact him at DarrenM [at] bgsu . edu.

If you like innovation and entrepeneurship , I think you’ll also enjoy iinnovate, a podcast by Matt and Julio, students from the Stanford Business and Design schools.  I’ve watched the interview of Eric Schmidt, CEO of Google and I just love it.  I think I’ll have to keep up with these podcasts from now on.

If you prefer psychology, PsyBlog is something you should subscribe to.  When I get really bored and want to get a headache figuring out how our mind works, that’s where I go 🙂

OK, I want to end today’s post on an inspirational note.  I usually don’t like commercials very much, but this was very well done by Liberty Mutual.  I don’t know if you guys believe in the idea of karma but J. Brad Hicks had a lot to say about it.  My favorite part of his post was: 

Whenever you do something cruel, the people around you see that the world contains cruelty, that cruelty is within the realm of normal behavior. Whenever you do something selfish or negligent, people learn to expect selfishness and negligence. But when you do the right thing, you create a world in which other people learn that they can expect other people to do the right thing.
