In the Digital Era, Content is part of you and you are part of the content. From a selfie or just being a bystander in a picture to your targeted blog post or Video channel, you take part, create, consume and promote content on a regular basis.
Now we all know that there are few people who like to stay away from all this. But if you use a Social Media or at least use your phone or laptop to read content you are part of the mix.
Creating Content has become vital in life and career. It has become more and more important for individuals to take part in content creation.
Unlike yesterday, more and more people search your name on Google or Bing Today. Some people in your professional circle may even be confused if they don’t see you on LinkedIn. It is not a rule, but more of an etiquette that you maintain to be reachable and searchable for help and opportunities.
The power of the Pen; is not in the color of the ink it spills; but the power of the word it spells.
While we say it is important to create content, it is also important to have a plan for it. A blog is a great way, but video’s are becoming more and more popular as more eyeballs are hooked on to moving pictures. There are a range of avenues to create content, Blogs, Videos, podcasts, Social Media and so on. Drop a line and let’s chat
Agile Poetry is a unique and creative way to engage teams like never before. At PenPositive we believe everyone can express creatively, and it just needs a start. A Poetry Workshop is not just about writing, it is also about reading, about living and expressing a poem. A one of its kind experience for your team to creatively collaborate and bind. A journey through reading, writing and expressing a poem.
“No! I Can’t” is what we get to hear many times when we talk about Poetry. Well that is why it is important to try and write it. Especially for agile teams who always have to push themselves beyond their comfort zone.
None of the things you do now are things you knew before you learned it or at least try to learn it. Poetry should be no different.
I was not a big fan of poetry as I grew up. In fact I never knew that I would write. I started listening to recitals and spoken word before I had the courage to start writing. No one said I could and so I want to make sure I tell everyone that they can. If I can, then they can.
Poetry helps us understand abstractness. It teaches us that there are more than one way to say things. And that their is a beauty in the way words lay and also in the meaning hidden inside them
It is not just about writing. One would think poetry is just about writing, but it is not. Poetry is about expressing it, giving a life that make people close their eyes and listen. Take them to places they have never been to.
Read it out Loud. When you read a poetry aloud; yours or others the world around you changes magically. It might not sound logical, but just pick a poem and read to someone you love. Or just sit in a room and read it like you mean it. When you read poems out loud, they also start responding back to you. The words talk back inside you. Some linger on in you and make you think. It is a way you connect with the author. If the author is you, it is a way to connect with yourself.
As unique individuals we all understand in a different way. When it comes to life or work we often stand our ground often inflexible to negotiate. But with poetry, we are interested in knowing the other person’s perspective
In the corporate world we all sit in rooms, cubicles and even open spaces to find solutions to problems that make the engines move in the world. What will happen, when we sit in a room and read and write and express Poetry?
Poetry can make us agile, Agile Poetry is what you should try…
We all hold stories from our life that we want to tell but not many of us embark on writing them. PenPositive’s Idea of Memoir Publish is to help people in writing and publishing their Memoir. We believe that everyone in this world has a story from their life that the world needs to know and has the power to change.
‘Memoir’ comes from the French Language meaning memory or reminiscence. While Memoir have historically been defined as a subcategory of biography or autobiography since the late 20th century, the genre is differentiated in form, presenting a narrowed focus. A biography or autobiography tells the story “of a life”, while a Memoir often tells “a story from a life”,
At Penpositive we help people to be their own Memoirist And a Memoirist is Someone who authors a Memoir. But we believe you can tell your story better that anyone else.
We all have a story. If not a complete autobiography; we have a story, a piece from our life that is worth telling and something people should know.
Some of the most inspiring stories are from the lives of people whose biography is never written. And for all of us it is important to sometime sit and write about our own life.
Go back in time and etch out elements of life and bring it to life through words. It is an extremely fulfilling experience
If anyone told you that you cannot write a Memoir listen to what Mitch Albom said. Mitch Albom is the Author of one of the top selling Memoir of all times “Tuesday’s with Morrie” He said
“I had a very high-grade publisher tell me I was incapable of writing a memoir.”
Don’t let what people tell you stop you
If someone says that your story is not worth telling then it is because they don’t know you enough. Just your life lived is reason enough that your story is worth telling.
Go on and tell your story Today!!!
