Les 5 étapes pour débuter son Personal Branding… - C’est déjà tout simplement prendre la bon réflexe de ne plus de présenter au travers d’une fonction ou d’une entreprise (Bonjour, je suis Fred et je travaille chez YYY). En effet cette identité ne vous appartient pas… il faut créer votre propre marque, apprendre à vous valoriser… mais sans vous « vendre », car on ne va pas vous acheter, on fait juste appel à vos capacités. Faire son Personal branding c’est mettre en avant ses qualités, ses réalisations, promouvoir ses activités… et les faire reconnaitre. Il faut donner une perception positive de soit, créer une image de marque, comme on le ferait avec un produit, qui a un positionnement dans l’esprit des clients. Le personal branding, c’est donc gérer (et sculpter) son image, et donc sa réputation. Voici par exemple ce que l’on trouve lorsque l’on me recherche sur le Web : Il faut donc développer sa notoriété, ses forces… et avoir une stratégie. L’objectif étant d’être reconnu comme un expert dans la thématique choisie. Conseils :

Short Formats: Narrative Film | Short of Stories Hey, sorry for taking so long to come back and write down the last part of the Short Formats series. I await for this article to be a really special one, hopefully it won’t burst your expectations, nor confirm your disappointments. This is the moment of truth: does your idea fit into a narrative short film? If you have simply ignored that your concept might be a better music video or interactive film than a classical short story until now, you must remember that the story gonna pick its format. In my article, Allowing the idea to talk, i’ve said that a story needs a LIFE CHANGING EVENT, a OBSTACLE and a GOAL, yet you obviously will also need a CHARACTER and a LOCATION. LIFE CHANGING EVENT doesn’t mean you should bring all the catastrophic hollywoodian crap to your story. This leads us to CHARACTER, the target for the LIFE CHANGING EVENT, and two sub-divisions of short film scripts: SITUATION-DRIVEN and CHARACTER-DRIVEN. This is the sixth and last article of the Short Formats series.

How to Make Yourself Work When You Just Don’t Want To There’s that project you’ve left on the backburner – the one with the deadline that’s growing uncomfortably near. And there’s the client whose phone call you really should return – the one that does nothing but complain and eat up your valuable time. Wait, weren’t you going to try to go to the gym more often this year? Can you imagine how much less guilt, stress, and frustration you would feel if you could somehow just make yourself do the things you don’t want to do when you are actually supposed to do them? The good news (and its very good news) is that you can get better about not putting things off, if you use the right strategy. Reason #1 You are putting something off because you are afraid you will screw it up. Solution: Adopt a “prevention focus.” There are two ways to look at any task. What you need is a way of looking at what you need to do that isn’t undermined by doubt – ideally, one that thrives on it. Solution: Make like Spock and ignore your feelings.

Comment se dire : les mots et les images Dramatic structure History[edit] Freytag's analysis[edit] "Freytag's pyramid", symbolizing his theory of dramatic structure According to Freytag, a drama is divided into five parts, or acts,[5] which some refer to as a dramatic arc: exposition, rising action, climax, falling action, and dénouement. Exposition[edit] Rising action[edit] In the rising action, a series of related incidents build toward the point of greatest interest. Climax or crisis[edit] The climax is the turning point, which changes the protagonist’s fate. Falling action[edit] During the falling action, the conflict between the protagonist and the antagonist unravels, with the protagonist winning or losing against the antagonist. Dénouement, resolution, revelation or catastrophe[edit] The comedy ends with a dénouement (a conclusion), in which the protagonist is better off than at the story's outset. Criticism[edit] Freytag's analysis was intended to apply to ancient Greek and Shakespearean drama, not modern drama. See also[edit] References[edit]

Chaque conception commence par une question : comment pouvons-nous faire quelque chose de mieux ? En UX, l’objectif n’est pas seulement une grande fonctionnalité, mais une grande expérience. Nous racontons tous des histoires. C’est l’une des façons les plus naturelles pour partager l’information, aussi vieille que l’origine de l’homme.
