Is digital the end of luxury brands? [24 Apr 2014|17:18]
seth_godin

http://feeds.feedblitz.com/~/62467145/0/sethsblog~Is-digital-the-end-of-luxury-brands.html

Luxury goods as we know them were invented/amplified/regulated by Colbert in the 1600s. At the beginning, luxury goods were better goods--better made, better leather, etc. This was actually a huge insight, and one that generated billions of dollars of revenue over the years.

Over time, as others figured out how to make things just as well as the 'luxury' brands could (the triumph of industrialism), the label on the item, the brand, became at least as important as what was made. The brand is a tribal signifier, a way of demonstrating good taste and a membership in the elite. People pay extra partly for the privilege of paying extra. For a very long time, a sale on luxury goods made no sense, because the fact that it wasn't on sale was precisely what made it a luxury good.

It's this selling of the logo, of Hermes or Chanel or Champagne that made the last fifty years of luxury production such an extraordinary opportunity. Add to this a growing cadre of the newly wealthy, eager for a badge, and it's nearly perfect. Feed the tribe, maintain the value of the logo and you actually get paid a premium for making the thing cost more. 

And then, the outlet stores showed up and Ralph Lauren danced the line between mass and class, selling logos big and small, at all price points. When anyone can make a nice shirt, which nice shirt should you pay extra for? H&M took this even further. There's still plenty of money being spent on the expensive, but the concentation of brand impact is diluting, quickly.

Here's what shifted just recently: In the post-industrial connection economy, we often value networks more than we value stuff. We'd rather have a working smart phone than a fancy car. We'd rather be invited to the right conferences than wear expensive shoes. Logos are worth less, easier to copy and not as valuable a tribal signifier as they were.

And yet...

And yet elites (of all kinds) still desire a way to demonstrate their inclusion into certain groups, groups that aren't open to all. And human beings still seek out the best of something, the item that carries with it the magic of a trained hand, of a bespoke origin and of the nostalgia for the special thing we remember.

I don't think think the luxury industry will disappear, but without a doubt, it is changing. Charging more is one tactic, but it might not be the only one.

I'll be speaking on this in Paris in early July. The organizers of the event tell me that code SETH-GODIN-GUEST saves you (ironically) about 30%.

Crazy like a Fish [24 Apr 2014|01:00]
dilbert_blog

http://dilbert.com/blog/entry/1081/

Do you remember my blog post about building a giant canal system in the U.S. as a way to create jobs in our robot-driven future?

It was officially the worst idea I've ever had, according to most of you.

Technically, it was just the worst idea I've ever shared. You wouldn't believe the crap that swirls around inside my skull and never gets out. But that's another story.

One of the biggest objections to my canal plan was that there are too many mountains in the way. But it turns out there's a natural network of connected rivers that go from the Pacific to the Atlantic already. That's a start.

Clearly we'd need a lot of dredging. But plotting the path for the first major leg of the canal might be done.

Okay, I know you still don't like the canal idea. But this is a reminder that it's never safe to assume something is impossible or impractical. I'm having flashbacks to the time I was putting together my sample comics to try and become a syndicated cartoonist. Most of my friends imagined that plan to be impossible for the obvious reason that I wasn't good at drawing. I got more looks of sympathy than support.

It's always a good idea to let reality be your only obstacle. Your imagination shouldn't be the limit on your success.

All of us are willing to spend a little time and a little money looking for a shortcut now and then. A quicker, more effective way to lose weight, make friends, earn money and get clean, fresh breath. Sometimes, one of those shortcuts pays off and it reinforces our belief that there might just be a better way.

It seems, though, that those that spend the most effort in search of shortcuts are often the most disappointed and the least successful.

A Letter To Jason On His 12th Birthday [23 Apr 2014|22:16]
chrisyeh_rss

http://chrisyeh.blogspot.com/2014/04/a-letter-to-jason-on-his-12th-birthday.html

It's hard to believe that it's been 12 years since I became your dad.

While I knew that it would change my life, I didn't know how much it would affect both my daily activities and my overall perspective.

I still remember being 11 years old, and wishing I could stay that age forever.  Even then, I knew that I would probably never have so carefree an existence again.  I dreaded that 12th birthday.

Yet as the calendar shows, I've managed to survive turning 12.  And 13.  And a lot of other birthdays (though I'm not going to say how man).  And as an old man who was once a boy, I wanted to share some advice that I hope you'll be able to use for the rest of your life.
  1. The most important part of growing up is figuring out who you are.  You're still learning about the world, and that's fine.  That knowledge will come with time.  But self-knowledge will only come if you seek it out.
  2. The best way to figure out who you are is to try doing different things.  Life is complicated and difficult to imagine without first-hand experience.  Go out and get that experience, but do so safely--there's not a lot that risking life and limb teaches you.
  3. No one has the right answers, so don't rely on other people to tell you what to do.  Even I, in my incredible wisdom, have been known to get things wrong.  Seek wise counsel, but make your own decisions.
  4. The best way to learn from others is from their actions, not their words.  People are terrible about predicting how they'll feel or what will make them happy.  Instead, use the power of surrogacy.  Find people who feel or have what you want, and learn from their example.
  5. It's bad to lie to others, but it's disastrous to lie to yourself.  I believe that the truth is the best policy (if nothing else, it takes less energy than remembering all your lies) but even if you decide you need to lie to others, never lie to yourself.  Either you'll start to believe yourself, or worse, you'll stop believing in yourself.
  6. When in doubt, be kind.  There aren't many situations where treating someone badly is the right decision.  Even if you need to say no, or thwart someone's desires, being nasty rarely helps you, let alone the other person.
  7. In the words of Abraham Lincoln, "This too, shall pass."  Sometimes good things will happen.  Sometimes bad things will happen.  Sometimes you'll be ecstatic.  Sometimes you'll be bitter.  Whatever the circumstance, recognize that all things are temporary, and everything changes.  That may help you stay calm and grounded.
(There's other advice I'll need to give you in a few years, but let's just leave that for the future, shall we?)

Body and Brain [23 Apr 2014|01:00]
dilbert_blog

http://dilbert.com/blog/entry/body_and_brain/

http://dilbert.com/blog/entry/1080/

The common view of human behavior is that thinking causes doing.

In recent years science has discovered this situation to be more of a bi-directional thing. For example, studies show that forcing a smile can lead to greater happiness. Most of you already knew that factoid. And obviously you understand that events in your environment and various sensations in your body can influence your mood and your thinking.

But I'll bet most of you hold the view that for the most part your thoughts lead to actions and that's 95% of the story of you. Lately I've come to the opposing view. I think our actions are the things that matter and our so-called minds are nothing but some executive control and a chemistry experiment.

I've been experimenting in the past year with the idea that I can control my thoughts by what I do with my body. Obviously my mind has to get the ball rolling to make me act in the first place. But instead of acting based on how I feel, I act based on how I WANT to feel. In other words, I use my body to control my future thoughts.

Yeah, yeah, you all do the same thing. I know. But it's a matter of degree. And it's a matter of how you THINK about your choices. A subtle shift in thinking can be a big deal.

For example, when feeling down, many people will curl up with some junk food and watch bad television shows until the feeling passes or some other duty calls. That's an example of letting your mind control your actions.

What I do in that situation is ask myself what is likely to cause a chemical improvement in my brain. Then I do that thing.

An hour ago I was in a funk. These days I recognize that situation as being no more than my brain chemistry being temporarily out of whack. In my younger years I would have cursed the world for serving up so much crappy luck, even if my luck was perfectly normal. Today I went and hit some tennis balls for an hour. Now I feel just fine. My body fixed my brain.

There's a tendency to think of the brain as the decision-making master of your person while the rest of your body is a slave. I see my body as an experience collector and my brain as the central depository of the experiences. When my brain chemistry is out of whack I use my body to collect the types of experiences that will correct the situation.

My observation of other people is that what I am describing (the moist robot view) is far from a universal approach. I think most people feel that their emotions and thoughts are somehow spontaneously generated, almost like magic, thanks to our souls and our free will and other things that aren't real.

The problem with that view of your own mind is that when things go bad you don't have a tool to fix things. Bad moods cause you to do self-destructive things which make your life worse which in turn keeps you in a bad mood. And repeat.

Now when I feel the world has conspired against me with a torrent of bad luck I keep in mind two thoughts that always help.

1. If this is truly a random cluster of bad luck, my luck will surely return to the mean in due time. In other words, the universe owes me big time. No one can be unlucky all the time. It's not an option the universe typically offers. 

2. I'm probably imagining the bad luck, or investing too much emotion in whatever is going wrong. I can reprogram my mind to happier thoughts by manipulating my body. 

So the next time you're not feeling the way you would like, ask yourself what you could do with your body to change your brain chemistry for the better. Then do it. You might be surprised how well it works.
