Read Fiction and Be Successful! 


Lots of research cites that studies that show reading fiction actually increases people’s emotional intelligence (EQ) and their accurate awareness of themselves and others, and their ability to create positive relationships with others based on managing their own reactions.. EQ or EI(Emotional Intelligence) is the ability to identify, assess, and control the emotions of oneself, of others, and of groups.

A lot of time it has been found that people who only read non-fiction tend to be somewhat more two-dimensional in their perceptions of others and of situations; they seem to have fewer options to call upon when making decisions or solving problems, though this can be very subjective! I’ve wondered about the cause and effect of it: Do people who read fiction already see life in a less black and white, more nuanced way, or do they see life in a less black and white, more nuanced way because they read fiction?

It seems that reading fiction improves your sensitivity to and appreciation of complex human situations; it provides a richer ‘toolkit’ of understanding from which to pull when making decisions and building relationships.  And as our business lives get more complex, faster-paced, less hierarchical and more dependent upon our ability to build support with those around us – that kind of toolkit becomes ever more critical to our success.

So if you’re feeling self-indulgent as you sit out on your porch of a weekend with Game of Thrones or Harry Potter or Sidney Sheldon (I'm simply naming out my collection!) in hand – reassure yourself that you may be improving your chances of business success just as much or more than if you were reading the Economic Times or the Wall StreetJournal!

Future Of Digital Marketing

The Origin of Digital-Marketing: The term 'digital marketing' was first used in the 1990s. In the 2000s and the 2010s, digital marketing became more sophisticated as an effective way to create a relationship with the consumer that has depth and
relevance. 
While the term 'digital marketing' may not have been used until the 1990s, digital marketing itself has roots to the mid-1980s when the Soft Ad Group, now ChannelNet developed advertising campaigns for several major automobile companies, wherein people would send in reader reply cards found in magazines and receive in return floppy disks that contained multimedia content promoting various cars and offering free test drives.
