Very interesting, Linda.  I really appreciate you sharing this.  I have not yet tried it.  However, it looks like a good idea.

I think your Klout score can go up by the actions of OTHER people.  For example, if other people gave you a +K or added you as an influencer on Klout, your score would go up - independent of anything you actually did yourself.  

The data could be from Klout itself, not Facebook.  Although your Klout account is associated with your Facebook personal profile, your score could be affected by activity that takes place only within Klout.  Make sense?

Love this article, Randy.  So many important life lessons.  Simply brilliant. 

I am attaching the video of your acceptance speech when you were inducted into the National Speakers Association Hall of Fame.  I think this qualifies nicely as a "poster child" for your point:  Stop worrying about what others think of you. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EwvaqCxQBtI

Love this:  "And also know that when you do something amazing, something important, something epic – it’s going to be a little scary.  Or a lot."

Did you write this article just for me?!

So glad to see you back in the saddle - even if only for a postcard.

Speaking of racial segregation, did you know that until 2010, Montgomery County High School in Georgia held SEPARATE proms for African-American and white students?  (Times Magazine, June 11, 2012, http://lightbox.time.com/2012/05/31/prom/#19).  I was shocked.

In Massachusetts, the Boston Alliance of Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender Youth hosts has hosted special proms for over 30 years—the nation’s oldest for GLBT youth. (Times Magazine, June 11, 2012, http://lightbox.time.com/2012/05/31/prom/#16)

It is amazing how far - and yet, not so far - we have come as a society.

Well said, Randy.  I also have a lot of faith.  I agree with your definition:  "a belief that if I visualize a thing, feel passionately about it, and work hard to manifest it, I can."

That is indeed my explanation of faith and I have it in abundance.

You might be interested in another tidbit I picked up about racial segregation in the not-so-old South.  Did you know that until 2010, Montgomery County High School in Georgia held SEPARATE proms for African-American and white students?  (Times Magazine, June 11, 2012).  I was shocked.

It is amazing how far - and yet, not so far - we have come as a society. 

Thanks much for continuing to ring the bell of sanity and awaken the world to these dangerous, unpopular issues that we allow to rule our minds, our lives, and our wallets.

Excellent article, Randy.  Thanks so much for breaking this down into a logical framework for discussion and for providing a place for such.  

People are amazed to learn that as late as 1967 in THIS country, people were literally JAILED for marrying a person of a different race.  Considering this adds new perspective to the current discussion.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Loving_v._Virginia

You asked a powerful question:  "How can you best structure bad news to mitigate its negative impact? "  This is one that I have struggled with for years!  I appreciate your tips and suggestions.  Thanks, Dianna!

Makes sense to me.  You HAD to learn how to think.  Much better than memorizing lots of useless data.  Love it!

Gerat article, Michelle. You make some very good points.  When internet access is limited (as it was at #nsa12), it is more difficult to engage with people.  I tend to "broadcast" from events as I think my followers like me to share the things I am learning.In any case, thanks for your post about this important issue.

This is one of the most important lessons in life.  It can be difficult to distinguish between the two.  Fortunately, your videos and blog posts help me with this a lot!  Thanks, Randy!

Another great place to find bloggers is Klout.  You can search for topic experts and find the people that really have influence in a specific area or with a specific group of people.

Thanks for reminding us about this important concept.  It is so very critical to health and prosperity.Thanks also for the introduction to Project Forgive.  What an awesome idea.  I am now an official backer!

Thanks for this very helpful article.  You make some good points and shed light on this perplexing new field of influence marketing and measurement.  In the early days of credit scoring, there was a great deal of misinformation, confusion, and inability to compare scores - even inside the lending institutions.  Technology, consumer pressure, and articles like yours will likely result in more transparency as time goes on.
