At Wired World Media, we are committed to being open to realizing our full potential. Being aware of what’s possible. Saying things that have never been said. Creating things that have never been created. We ask “why not?” not “why?” We are open-minded, insane, and throw out the wildest possibilities. We think bigger. We yearn to learn and grow. We have the boldness and courage to take risks,…Continue

Another one of our WAYS OF WOW encourages us to keep it real. We are committed to being authentic in who we are and what we say and do. We speak from our experience and in the moment. Keeping it real means speaking what one is thinking and feeling about anything related to work without regard to “how it will sound”. It means being transparent and revealing our true selves. Withholding relevant information, keeping secrets, and participating in gossip are clearly…Continue

"Be Countonable" is one of the 10 Ways of Wow at Wired World Media. Even though the word "countonable" is not a real word in the dictionary, being countonable is a very real and powerful practice.
Being countonable means being true to our word. It means doing what we say we will do, when we say will do it. It means keeping our agreements, all of our agreements, whether they are large or small. The world works to the degree…Continue

The following passage is from a book published in 1951 titled The Scottish Himalayan Expedition by W.H. Murray. It is one of my favorites. If you can get through the "old fashioned" language, this is really just another way to talk about the Wired World Media value of "Rock the Cheetah's Ass."
Until one is committed there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness. Concerning all acts of…Continue

Language is powerful. For all practical purposes, until an idea is put into words, it doesn’t exist. In the 1960’s, President Kennedy spoke about putting a man on the moon. This led to massive efforts that resulted in a man walking on the moon. Family vacations or applying to colleges happen only after someone starts talking about them. Language is required to make almost anything happen.
There are a variety of ways to talk about your future. The words you use have a huge…Continue

The quality of your life is determined primarily by the quality of your relationships. When you have loving relationships at home, close relationships with friends, and supportive relationships at work, life is pretty good. If your relationships are filled with anger, misunderstanding, and distrust, distress and anxiety are more common.
You can improve relationships by using the concept of emotional bank accounts, as explained by author Stephen Covey. Pretend that you have an…Continue
