EXPLORE LIKE A HERO. #thefutureisours #innovateordie

I’m passionate about innovation. It’s what is driving us forward and building the future. Last week at Ford’s Go Further conference, innovation came up in every talk about technology, design, sustainability. At Banff World Media two weeks before, I introduced you to the concept INNOVATE OR DIE on my show. If you are not constantly innovating your business, yourself, your thoughts, you will be left behind. The title of my recent interview in TechVibes was ‘Survival of the Fittest’, you gotta focus on making yourself better.

Watch this video. You will be inspired:

We are living in an extraordinary time, ’embrace your inner trouble maker’. Let’s build a better future. NEVER STOP DREAMING.

The Future is Ours from Michael Marantz

My favorite line is ‘intellectually seductive’. That’s what I wanna be. I wanna stimulate your brain and make you think. I want to get your mind all riled up and excited. Cause movement in your corpus. Get your central nervous system going.

Thank you kindly to Julian Shenoy for tweeting me this. It was the first message I saw this morning and an AWESOME way to start the day.

I’m heading up to Sean’s cottage in Muskoka then to the park to see the Tragically Hip with some of my best friends. I’m so CANADIAN! I can’t WAIT!

HAPPY CANADA DAY!

MY NAME IS CASIE AND I. AM. CANADIAN!

In a world where you can be anything, be yourself.

One of the things I love most about having a blog is having a diary of my life to remind me where I have been and what I have learned.

I get a an email each day from Time Hop reminding me what I posted that day the year before. My post had the same title on June 28, 2011. I wanted to remind you to be yourself. You are the best you there will ever be. Own it!

Sitting in Detroit airport en route to Toronto. Charging phone, sitting floor. Heading to Hoxton tonight for MSTRKRFT w/ ABSOLUT. They are sending a limo to pick us up. Will be a fun night. Looking forward to seeing friends.

Have heaps to soak up from an incredibly awesome last three days here with Ford. I have so much to tell you. Time to board our plane…

You will never be younger than you are today, do something awesome.

We are not living in eternity.

“Begin doing what you want to do now. We are not living in eternity. We have only this moment, sparkling like a star in our hand – and melting like a snowflake.” Marie Beyon Ray

Wonderful day. Always on the go. Great party last night, thanks The Blog Studio and every narcissist out last night. See all the faces in the FB album.

Got to meet Faris finally. Friends online for years, first IRL meeting. We are in this video.

Feeling good about work. Loving life. Sunshine on the face. BBQ later. So many shows. Gifting lounges tomorrow w/ O’Nizz. Cinderella has nothing to wear to Rockstar Hotel or MMVAs. Please stay calm. Fiji Water delivered me a case today. Just in time for a killer weekend. Putting on Converse, jean shorts and a tshirt heading to see bands and a BBQ. NXNE FTW. MMVA madness tomorrow. Here we go. Come!

I am thankful for iPhone. I love the renegade road blog. I’ll try to do my best this weekend as eyes & ears on the ground, finger on the pulse. I’m your Information DJ, signing off.

And running late 😉

Those who bring sunshine into the lives of others, cannot keep it from themselves.

I love when it rains. Joe Fresh denim shirt dress, Hunter wellies, Gap kids rubber jacket, Toronto Star cartoon brolly. Sadly, my brolly caught a bad case of wind on the way to the conference and he is no longer with us.

Made it to Women in Business conference, found power supply. The guy on stage just used a word I don’t know, can someone explain ‘rolodex?’

See what I did here? We start filming Monday. I’m really excited. Been waiting for THIS for my whole life.

You know how I always tell you to be positive and make the most of each day? Well, I really freaking mean it. The only way to attract good and wonderful things into your life is to put it out there. Like attracts like, the power of attraction is about particles of matter.

Had a great sister date yesterday, look at these babes. LOVE YOU GIRLS.

To be thirty. I’m ready to embark on a new decade with even more enthusiasm than ever before.

My sister and I are sitting in the window at Factory Girl laughing and crying as we turn the pages of Dear Photograph. It came out yesterday and is the perfect gift to give your mama this weekend. Give a box of kleenex too. It will remind you that life is short and you need to make the most of ever single day because you will be old and the days will be gone before you know it.
