Today, I’d like to share the compelling tale of a rather unusual World War II veteran who served in the Polish II Corps. From the time he was enlisted in the army to the day he retired to the Edinburgh Zoo, his presence lifted the spirits of everyone he encountered. Although his life came to an end when he was just 21 years old, Wojtek the soldier bear left behind a legacy that should be shared for generations to come.

Creating a consistent brand voice tends to be a pretty low priority for most businesses: if it’s even a priority at all. Business professionals can sometimes make the common mistake of thinking that a “brand voice” is just another term for marketing or social selling, but this misconception can lead to trouble as their companies grow.

People tend to be pretty unimaginative with product descriptions. The standard outline is a quick bullet-point list that highlights the product’s main specs. And while that’s a good start, it’s not going to boost your site’s SEO power or convert more customers. It’ll just be another unremarkable list in the vast sea of lackluster product descriptions.

The deep-rooted human desire to share stories and communicate our unique perspectives with each other is by no means a recent phenomenon. Our intrinsic appreciation for creativity and connection stretches all the way back to the dawn of mankind.

In a world of clickbait articles and sensationalized reports, it can be easy for people to dismiss any information they don’t agree with as “fake news.” Although there are sources that may be more credible than others (your local news channel vs. your Facebook feed, for instance), the widespread distrust of the news media in general has made it increasingly difficult for our nation to effectively communicate about issues that impact all of us.

Full disclosure: this article is going to discuss the grammar of online content. I know this doesn’t quite meet Buzzfeed levels of entertainment, but I firmly believe that everyone who uses the internet desperately needs to brush up on their writing skills. Also, in a sincere effort to make this dry topic a little more appealing, I’ve included some photos of adorable kittens to illustrate my points.

Take a second and picture yourself scrolling through Netflix, searching for the perfect show to binge-watch this week. I’m not talking about blasé “Netflix and chill” content; I mean high-quality productions that you actually want to pay attention to.

After skimming through seemingly hundreds of low-budget horror movies and cringe-worthy sitcoms, you might finally stumble upon a hidden gem that you thoroughly enjoy… but wouldn’t it be easier if these awesome shows appeared automatically? Or if the entirety of Netflix was customized for your exact specifications?

Imagine if medical scientists gave up on researching potential cures for diseases, or if the entirety of NASA no longer cared about what lies beyond our solar system. Try to picture a future where musicians stop composing, artists permanently put away their painting supplies, and all engineers decide that technology needs no further development. Worst of all, imagine how you would feel if your favorite author decided to stop publishing new books—in the middle of a series. Sounds like a pretty miserable world, right?
