Microsoft underplayed the Internet at first and had to manage an expensive (and very successful) turnaround. Facebook was also too slow to pick up the mobile internet, and it had to acquire emerging competitors such as WhatsApp and Instagram that were threatening to eclipse the social network via their mobile apps. Both companies have learned lessons and they do not what to miss the boat on the next evolution of the Internet – the Metaverse.

And they are not alone. The list of companies offering a flavor of the Metaverse is growing; Google is working on a Metaverse updated version of its interactive glasses, and Epic Games has raised $1bn to support their internal development of a Metaverse.

Part of being in business is dealing with frustrations. These can take many forms, such as rude customers, difficult suppliers, impenetrable red tape, or problematic changes to legislation. How we deal with these feelings of frustration is important – succumbing to negative emotions such as anger may take its toll on your mental health and perhaps push your business down an undesirable path. Do you really want to be a business that snaps back at customers, bickers with suppliers, ignores necessary paperwork, or flouts laws?

We all have times when spontaneous negative thoughts take over our rational mind. If you suppress and bottle up your feelings:

  • You can constantly feel frustrated
  • Anger can churn inside you causing health issues such as ulcers and digestive problems
  • You feel generally miserable and under par
  • You may feel misunderstood or ignored

Removing Negative Thoughts

None of these is an aid to running a business.

Maddy Cooper, founder of a sustainability marketing agency, Brilliant Noise was burnt out. Bex Shindler, plant-based chef and founder of The Mindful Kitchen, was stuck by a fear of failing. They were casualties of business being conducted from the head rather than the heart. Limited beliefs, assumptions, and defaulting to what worked in the past can be the result of a business that is purely head-led. Our soul’s calling and creative expression can be ignored in pursuit of profit, and our relationships and health can deteriorate as we burn out.

By listening to her heart, Maddy reconnected to her purpose of creating a sustainable world for her children. She fell back in love with her business, pitching and winning big global brands aligned with this purpose. And nine months after committing to following her heart, Bex was hired as the chef for the Black Eyed Peas and had a fully booked diary of Ibiza retreats fulfilling her purpose of providing compassionate food for a compassionate world.

During the pandemic Zoom and its like have been (and will continue to be) incredibly useful business tools, but beyond the basic communication of information, a vital part of those virtual business meetings was the connection. Humans crave connection, something that has been limited (at times more than others) over the last two years. Even those who embraced remote working and enjoyed the experience of working from home need to be seen, to be heard, to be connected.

We need to connect, feel the connection, and become connected to others. These shifts don’t need to be herculean efforts. I’m a great believer in instant change, little ‘micro-moments’ of learning or adaptation that allow us to actively take charge of our situation and emotions in the moment, reset, and bring more of our best to help ourselves and others. Each micro-moment intervention is designed to be actionable in a minute and I’ve written three books on these micro-moments for life, work, and family.

As many of us return to the workplace (either full-time or as part of a hybrid arrangement), here are five ways to re-connect and plug back into life – in just a moment.

There are obvious drawbacks to virtual cake, but if your team works remotely, it really is worth gathering everyone together for a Zoom celebration when one of your colleagues becomes another year older. It is such an easy morale booster – even better when people can join in in person. This got me and my team thinking about all the special occasions and celebrations that there are around the world, and the opportunities they give us to bring us a little bit of joy and magic. These are often found in tiny moments and all it takes is a little shift of perspective to really see and appreciate them. I’m a great believer in instant change, little ‘micro-moments’ of learning or adaptation that allow us to actively take charge of our situation and emotions in the moment, reset, and bring more of our best to help ourselves and others.

The phone in your pocket is many things: a portal to YouTube, Disney Plus, Netflix, etc.; it gives you access to office products such as Word and Excel; it’s a camera; it’s a radio; it’s an internet browser; it’s even able to let you speak to someone in the next room or on the other side of the world. It can also direct you from one part of the world to another, providing the fastest, easiest route to any destination, whether driving, using public transport or walking. But when you reach your destination and you enter an office building, shopping mall, hospital or airport, how useful is Google Maps? The answer is zero. If you need directions to the right office door, shop, department or gate you’ll need a little more help.

With the impacts of climate change having disastrous effects on human, animal, and plant life around the world, more and more of us are becoming concerned about what we buy and interested in how we can make a positive difference. Brands across most industries are making all sorts of green claims but sometimes it can feel hard to make sense of the jargon and know for sure what it all really means.

Recently conducted research* found that almost two-thirds (64%) of those questioned said they want to take climate action but feel overwhelmed by the numbers or jargon or are often put off by the lack of information available on the topic. The same study found that four in five (82%) would do more for the environment if they saw less ‘carbon jargon’ and instead received simpler information about what they could do to reduce their impact on the planet.

In addition to the ongoing drama of an intensifying Pandemic, 2021 also underscored the magnitude of our creeping, existential global Climate Crisis.  Weather extremes affected communities on all continents – crazy floods in Germany, Canada, and China: massive forest fires in Australia, Greece, and the USA: droughts in part of Africa: Typhoons in the Pacific and the Atlantic.  As a result, there were increasing numbers of Climate refugees.

The Glasgow COP 26 in November kept Climate on the public agenda.  We saw a Glasgow Tourism Declaration.  Also, unveiled has been a Code Red Tourism Plan for children, calling for the tourism sector to go further, faster. This plan calls for 50% fewer carbon emissions by 2030 and absolute Zero Greenhouse Gas (GHG) by 2050.  Not just carbon dioxide, but also the more potent methane, sulfur, and nitrous compounds. And it’s absolute zero, not some vague “net,” that kicks the can down the 2050 Road.

Tapping into special occasions and times of the year is a good Social Media strategy. But this festive period, don’t just go for holly and Santa hats. Be less obvious. Christmas is a fun and festive time when people seek connection and cozy jumpers over effortless cool. By leaning into this frivolity, it’s possible to create some truly eye-catching photography that brings out more of your brand while still capturing the Christmas spirit!
