Apple is keeping our app "In Review" for 4 weeks already. They don't tell us if there is a problem or what is happening. They do not communicate anything to us, except "please wait". Many great new features are lagging behind to be delivered to our cozy community. We can do nothing, just wait. No issues with Google Play.
Years ago, I used to be a huge fan of Apple's brand, believing in their company & what they do. This belief started to fade out a few years gradually, going down from feelings of excitement to hate. It is interesting to observe how my personal relationship with a brand is changing over time.
Also, Apple developers are forced to use Apple Pay solutions in many cases (like selling digital goods) in their apps, and Apple does not allow any other payment providers. No issues with Google Play. Oh, by the way, if you use Apple Pay, you pay up to 30% of the commission fee, which is a total rip-off.
Recently I read an article that the EU is starting a process to put an end this foully. Of course, it will take years to complete it, but at least someone is taking care of it. Read the article here: https://www.theguardian.com/business/nils-pratley-on-finance/2020/jun/16/the-eus-bite-at-apple-could-prove-to-be-a-game-changer
So, what's the moral of the story? The more you abuse your power, the more angry people you will get, and the stronger resistance you will create from the market. Nobody can win against the market, so instead of continuing your abuse, just stop doing that.
Agree or disagree?
Have a lot of thoughts buzzing in the head, but feel crap at articulating them to your team or others?
I feel you. It happens to me. ALL.THE.TIME! 🙄
You feel like you have a lot of ideas and have the reasoning why they are great and that you can take over the world with them. But when they come out of your mouth, what you say doesn’t have the same power when you vocalize them. And unfortunately what sounds great in your head just doesn’t translate to anything valuable, impressive or inspiring to your team.
Not all of us are born great orators, but when we have a passion, we can talk hours about it. Meaning, we have a bunch of words and sentences around the topic, but the key is to concentrate the most valuable part of the whole idea into a short pitch.
So…what to do?
Basically you have to practice explaining things to people. Here’s a few tips I from my experience, that I feel helped me a lot:
1️⃣ TREAT IT LIKE A STORY
“It all started, when…” Not everyone operates on the same level of information as you do, so even if it feels stupid and common sense most of the time when working in a team, start with giving a back story to why your topic/suggestion/idea is important. This introduction is a great way for you to keep the flow of your talk, have everyone onboard and not jump into the middle of the story where context might get lost for people that have less information about what you are telling.
2️⃣ HAVE A PLAN
Have the end goal in your head, where you want the listeners to be taken to by your story. Even if what you will be telling or discussing goes all different directions, you will have this powerful lighthouse - the main point that you want to conclude to.
3️⃣ BE PREPARED
if you have time, let’s say - have a meeting about something - do some research and challenge your idea asking WHY it is important to discuss and HOW it could be perceived different than you think. In that case - you will feel solid if you get these questions, will express your opinion more firmly, taking possible doubts into consideration, and increase the chance that conclusions will be made as you expected.
4️⃣ MAKE IT FLOW
Thoughts usually are very chaotic. In our heads, they are random keywords which you roughly know how to combine into this huge concept. Try putting your thoughts into text. When you do this exercise, you will be faced with a challenge of construction - have to write it down so that it has structure, flows nicely and makes sense in general. After doing so, you will have the structure in your head: what is starts from, why it matters, how you propose to approach it and what value will this idea bring to listeners.
🙃 P.S. See what I did here? I think Qoorio insights are a great way to start practising structuring your talks and inspiring your team 😉
I try it again I lost some text about homeless women her name is Indigo Sun she has a degree in psychology and worked about 22 years in it. Now she is sleeping outside in the dark and cold... She do not have a passport neither nor dokuments, she is Italien from southern part of where I come from so she even dose not have the right to stay in this country what a big problem it is...can anybody do something?...
No, its her mistake and she is the one who thinks about it wrong I tell you she is running away from something which haunting her till the very end... A realy tricky thing is the mind it is even if a proper person who is dedicated to some bigger level has this brakedown to overcome, so all is a fars to me nothing changed after a year and still I am beging her to function right and she will lie to me in to my face so sometimes I get angry and tell her the truth about her, terrible job but social and for her the only chance to be sometimes normal and under control....
Next time it will be the same again with her nobody will change this person into good however I still take care of her and try my best doing a good job.... Radical changes occurse to human living beings terrible mistakes happening and nobody will be there what a misery to the human race...
