Why so serious?

World Thinking Day - 22 Feb

 How do you become larger than yourself? How big do you dare to think? How huge do you want your impact to be?

 World Thinking Day may sound like a generalised celebration targeted at stimulating thought around politics, culture, business, tech & so on. You may assume it to be an initiative of an international general organisation that addresses these issues.

 In reality, it is a day initiated by World Association of Girl Guides & Girl Scouts or WAGGGS. Yes, it comes from a very gender-based movement but look at the amazing way in which uses the general idea of thinking itself!

 Own a day that’s larger than you. Get inspired by Girl Guides & Scouts. Visit their site: https://www.wagggs.org/en/what-we-do/world-thinking-day/

Banana Bread Day - 23rd Feb

 Just as the banana bread puts overripe bananas to delicious use, repurposing puts your existing content to a variety of uses.

 This way you'll never be out of content and it will also keep your brand's online presence healthy. Learn about the power of repurposing here: http://bit.ly/Garyvee-content-model

 Start with making a list of the content you already have. Check if you can break it down or expand it.

World Bartender Day - 24th Feb

 We often talk about being nice to your customers. But it works the other way round too. World Bartender Day tells you the importance of being nice to your vendors/service providers too.

 Next time, be nice to the bar staff for better service which eventually makes your night out memorable. This World Bartender Day will remind you to do so.

 Start with the bartenders & apply the thought everywhere else.

 And then think about your own business. Which of your employees face your customers directly? How do you hire them? Have you tried to find out how your customers talk to them?

 Know why you should train your customer-facing team more seriously: https://enyotalearning.com/blog/training-customer-facing-workforce-different/

Floral Design Day - 28th Feb

 Beauty is not just in the eye of the beholder. It’s also something that one can consciously try to achieve in everything one does.

 Your website logo is one such example. Putting images, fonts & colours together won’t get you the ideal logo. Or webpage etc.

 Focus on what you want to communicate & try to fit it into established frameworks like the golden ratio.
