How Your Purpose Shapes the Value of Your Work
Most of us strive to live a life of purpose. But within the day-to-day hustle of life, it’s all too easy to lose sight of what truly drives us. This can, in turn, affect not just our relationships and our lifestyles, but also our professional lives.
Relationshipism: Build Your Kin-Group
You are the average of the 5 people you spend the most time with. It may be common sense, yet uncommon practice. In any close group, you have to contribute, you have to stay healthy, you have to learn, and you have to help people flourish.
Life does not promise us stability. Rather, it gives us a laboratory where we can experiment. And we should!
Because what is the point of being alive if you never get to do what you came to this planet to do?

Enterprise Architecture and BRM: Allies in Strategic Purpose
History has given many examples of great partnerships between those with great ideas and those who drive the ideas to fruition. It is difficult for one person to play both roles, especially in a complex environment in which the problems range from non-trivial at best all the way to dealing with things that have never before been solved.
At the heart of the synergy between Enterprise Architecture and BRM is the EA’s gift at conceiving solutions and the BRM’s ability to breathe life into those solutions.

How to Talk Yourself to Success
What would you attempt if you knew failure was impossible?
When we respond to opportunities with positivity and motivation, our bodies release dopamine. The release of this prized chemical in the brain, known as the “reward drug”, naturally improves our mood, increases our focus, and boosts internal motivation.

Relationshipism Identifies Recognized Value Through BRM
A BRM capability provides invaluable benefit to both employees and their organization by promoting intangible value.
Since it can be difficult to understand the benefits of intangible value, one question commonly heard by BRMs is:
“How does Business Relationship Management (BRM) and ultimately, Relationshipism, identify recognized value for an organization?”
Relationships and the Rise of the People Platform
In the past, old hierarchies within business organizations traditionally viewed employees as a single, replaceable cog in an enormous machine; a means to an end. Value was placed solely on a predetermined business strategy to be achieved at the lowest possible cost. As a result, the cogs–meaning people–either fit into this strategy or not.
“Sure” Is a Funny Word!
“Sure” is a funny word. When used in conjunction with a possessive pronoun it indicates total conviction – i.e. “I am sure.”
However, when used outside of the sentence (and especially without a possessive pronoun), it indicates reticence, passivity or sarcasm.
So how do you know which way to interpret someone’s “sure”?
Thrive with Purpose when Changing Careers
Throughout the 20th century, the concept of the career employee represented the gold standard for most of the workforce. If you could land a position with plenty of job security, you could stay in that role for years and work your way up the ranks of a single company.
Despite this, changing careers has always been a hallmark of professional life.
Coming Full Circle with BRM as a Philosophy
The dawn of the 21st century shed its rosy glow on a new way of thinking. Workers began to realize that killing themselves for shareholders they’d never meet and a bottom line they’d never see just didn’t make sense. The term “value” began to take on a different meaning. Notably, value expanded from tangible goods and money to include intangibles such as happiness, health, vacation-time, and purpose.
How to Own Your Emotions using Self-Regulation
Emotions are simply tools that we use to process and understand information. Thus, when we allow ourselves that time to process, we can mindfully respond in a manner that provides mutual value through self-regulation.
