A New Way to Shine with Highlights, Insights and Media-bites that’s Exciting (Old-School Flava)

Another weekend of NFL games with lots going on. Some eyes are on Colin Kaepernick for his on-the-field play and off-the-field cause. Plus Dak Prescott is having a breakout year as the Cowboy’s rookie quarterback. He might be the newest NFL superman, but Beyoncé fans know she’s their superwoman.

According to USA Today, Prescott’s teammate Barry Church said “What makes him so impressive is that he is calm and cool…he is smart…he is beyond his years and I am excited he is with us.” Maybe those words are true for Bey too. They know reaching the goal line is less about status and more about stats.

It’s a case of great ones showing poise before tipping their hats. Recently, Beyoncé had to keep things going during a concert while suffering an injury on stage. In the back and forth of taking care of business Prescott’s handling those intangible assets. He’s made a believer in his teammates and they’re in him.

He’s also using game skills to score points. Prescott broke Tom Brady’s record for most passing attempts before an interception to start a career. Whether with skill points, style points, life points or paycheck decimal points, the great ones keep moving closer to the goal line. This makes their performance bounce.

The hot topic in football is if Dak will have to step back when Romo returns. We’ll see how things playout before the DakPac goes whack. They might take cues from the BeyHive. But for others trying to reach their goal line, Dak & Bey are reminders of how poise like the pros gives us the chance to strike a pose.

It’s another weekend on the NFL front. Few teams make a run others punt. Eyes on Kaepernick for his on-the-field play. Wanting to hear what he’s got to say. Plus Dak Prescott showing he’s got the goods. No ifs, ands, buts or shoulds. He getting NFL superman applaud. Bey fans love their superwoman unflawed.

So Prescott teammate Barry Church has his take. For why Prescott is the real deal not fake. Calm, cool and smart on his feet. Beyond his years ready to compete. Excited to have him on the squad. Maybe true words for Bey’s musical iPod. Reaching goal line as celebrity cats. Less about status more about stats.

A case of great ones showing poise. Tipping their hats through the noise. Bey having to keep it together on stage. Even when injured rocking like a sage. In the back and forth of the field. Taking care of biz for a higher yield. Handling intangibles like a star. Made a believer in his teammates that he’s a star.

Using game skills to score points. Tight passing and shaking-up the joints. Broke Brady’s record for rookie starter. Most passing attempts without interceptor. Skill points, style points in doing his thing. Life points, check points towards the ring. Great ones close-in on goal line. Performance aged like fine wine.

Hot topic in pro football talk. If Romo gotta take a walk. Dak’s on a roll since QB took hit. When he returns will he be fit? Let’s see then how things playout. Before DakPac has to jump and shout. Taking cues from BeyHive crew. Buzz like bees let-out the zoo. Goal line poise as the pros. A good chance to strike a pose.

Tip: Getting closer to the goal line takes poise by striking a pose, whether going vogue or going rogue.

It seems President Obama is in legacy mode. It’s a bookend to those earlier days of being in campaign mode. So he recently addressed youth activists in London, sharing his take on making a difference. It might be said he’s bringing the KoolAid while Beyoncé is selling ‘Lemonade’ on the world stage.

In his cool-cat manner he told the activists “You have a responsibility to prepare an agenda that is achievable —that can institutionalize the changes you seek and to engage the other side.” Prez and Bey show us how game changers add the price tag of hustle and the cost of living to grow their ranking.

As his presidency unwinds, he shared some good pointers for workers, movers & shakers. He reflected on the difference between making noise and making waves. Just as the ocean teaches us, there’s a consistency that flows from the deep to the shallow. So it’s more than making a living, it’s modeling a life.

With her newest album release in a HBO video-diary, she’s a game changer who reminds us that it’s more than just making music but also making others wiser. As millennials pass baby boomers in census numbers maybe there’s a shift in using her own journey and story to stir-up a stream of consciousness.

The buzz since the album release has been off the charts. Both Prez and Bey are using their work to make it worth something. Things can feel stuck when we just get by or if the soul don’t dream no more. They show us how our efforts become worthy of more by moving from merely brand force to soul force.

Seems Prez Obama in legacy mode. Before his term hits the road. A bookend to those earlier days. When his campaign the roof did raise. Telling youth activists in London spot. On making a difference and doing it hot. On world stage Obama brings KoolAid. While Beyoncé sells her brand of ‘Lemonade.’

A cool-cat telling activists as Prez. To have an agenda he says. Something achievable in change they seek. Not for the faint of heart or unduly meek. A way to bring it to the masses. So they don’t look like asses. Prez and Bey add hustle to cost of living. As game changers who grow their ranking.

His term during its unwind. Sends message for the work grind. Not just about making noise. Even if doing it with poise. But also in making waves. That’s the stuff that attracts raves. As the ocean teaches us all. Consistency flow from deep to shallow fall. From making a living to modeling a higher call.

With newest album release as video diary. Beyonce brings it to the Beyhive community. A game changer’s next groove beyond the music. Lose yourself but be wiser beyond the tunic. Forget ‘bout Becky who others want to see. In setting a stream of consciousness free.

Album buzz been off the charts. As she reaches music lover’s hearts. Prez and Bey using their work track. To be worth something more than being black. At times things can feel stuck. Trying to get by on making a buck. A move to be worthy beyond brand force. To efforts being guided by soul force.

Tip: Great achievers move things in life from brand force to soul force as if going from regular to rock star.

Kanye West is fuming because Beyoncé didn’t get album of the year. He’s not the only one upset about something. Twitter CEO Richard Costolo was quoted saying “We suck at dealing with abuse and trolls on the platform and we’ve sucked at it for years.” He wants less crap and more cream to rise to the top.

They’ve been losing users due to social-media abuse. Costolo knows this is gonna be tricky and is ready to tackle the issue. Maybe success at this will be similar to how achievers cause less crap and more cream to rise to the top. Somewhere along the lines Costolo might go back to the Twitter roots.

The reason for Twitter is different from Facebook or Linkedin. Similarly, the purpose behind someone’s dream is different from another. Costolo will likely look at what gives Twitter its ratings and whether some factor(s) are underrated. Cream rises to the top by separating the over-inflated from the under-rated.

It’s been said ‘you get what you pay for.’ Another way of seeing this is ‘you get what you reward.’ So how might Twitter better reward cream in rising to the top? Maybe that’s the missing element in having Twitter clout or street cred. Building connections takes a few clicks but building clout takes much greater skill.

Some high-profile users have mixed feelings about social-media. Those who’ve been bullied or hacked are fuming as well. Costolo knows that if this isn’t fixed soon Twitter could be losing-out even more. So for Twitter and those who want to raise their profile, turn the cream of your dreams into better ratings.

Kanye West is again fuming. Thinks Beyoncé had no business losing. Didn’t get props for album of the year. Maybe her ‘Beyhive’ fans have no fear. West not the only one with a gripe. Twitter CEO feels he’s got to refresh the buzz and hype. He wants less crap getting the pop. And more cream rising to the top.

Users are dropping left and right. Social-media abuse and online flight. Fixing the mess gonna be tricky. Tackling the issues gonna be sticky. Success for Twitter not unlike that of achievers. Less crap and more cream add-up to believers. Maybe Twitter roots will come into play. If they’re gonna make any headway.

Twitter different from Linkedin or Facebook. Whether viewed from a smartphone or tablet nook. Purpose and dreams different from another. Even if you start out undercover. Time to look at Twitter rating scale. Before putting stuff up for sale. Separating factors that are overinflated. From those that are under-rated.

‘You get what you pay for’ some have said. ‘You get what you reward’ sticks in others’ head. How does Twitter get less crap and more cream to rise? Takes figuring out some reward as the prize. Maybe a missing element in Twitter clout or cred. Connections take a few clicks but clout’s better instead.

Some high-profile users have jumped ship. With mixed feelings about being social-media hip. Those bullied or even hacked. Are fuming or already been packed. Without fixing, Twitter could lose-out more. To others having better score. Raising your profile or dream rating. Is about letter cream do the elevating.

Tip: Cream rises to the top by separating the overinflated from the under-rated for a higher dream rating.
Talkback: So how might Twitter or others better reward their cream so that more of it rises to the top?
