It’s About Choices – Decide to “Believe in Yourself”

I tend to be a guy that is networked pretty heavy in Linked-in.  One of the organizations I follow is called the Creative Intensive Network – For all Advertising Creatives.

The birds gather in shape-shifting flocks called murmurations, having migrated in the millions from Russia and Scandinavia to escape winter’s frigid bite. Scientists aren’t sure how they do it, either. The starlings’ murmurations are manifestations of swarm intelligence,…
