Wednesday Word of the Week on beBee: WWW.beBee


In English: (In Spanish below.)

I have a hive called, “What words mean to me.” 

I would like to add the following feature to this hive; every Wednesday, I will post the word(s) of the week. This will be made up of what I receive in my inbox messages from you by Monday. This invitation is going out on beBee in as many languages as possible and so the word or words will be in the language of origin. I would ask that we all use the same 2-part format: …defined as and What this word means to me. 

For example, I will start us off with the word, affinity.

Affinity is defined as:
1. A spontaneous or natural liking or sympathy for someone or something.
2. A similarity of characteristics suggesting a relationship, especially a resemblance in structure between animals, plants, or languages.
3. The degree to which a substance tends to combine with another.
What this word means to me.
As an active member of beBee, the word affinity has been introduced into my life as I had never had the opportunity to use it before. Now I feel like I experience affinity, I am connecting spontaneously with a number of people and their ideas. I feel that I am relating in a meaningful way with others. And increasingly more now, I have been combining my writing and sharing with learning and meeting.

My Call To Action is my invitation. I invite you to send me a word that holds a meaning for you.

In Spanish:

Tengo una colmena llamada, “What words mean to me”.

Cada Miércoles, publicaré la/s palabra/s de la semana. Será hecho a partir de todos los mensajes privados que reciba antes de cada Lunes. Esta invitación la compartiremos fuera de beBee en tantos idiomas como sea posible, así que la/s palabra/s, serán publicadas en el idioma de origen. Os pediría que todos nosotros usemos el mismo formato de dos partes: la primera parte la palabra, y la segunda parte lo que la palabra significa para mí.

For example, I will start us off with the word, affinity.
La primera parte la palabra: Affinity is defined as:
1. A spontaneous or natural liking or sympathy for someone or something.
2. A similarity of characteristics suggesting a relationship, especially a resemblance in structure between animals, plants, or languages.
3. The degree to which a substance tends to combine with another.
Que la palabra significa para mí. What this word means to me.
As an active member of beBee, the word affinity has been introduced into my life as I had never had the opportunity to use it before. Now I feel like I experience affinity, I am connecting spontaneously with a number of people and their ideas. I feel that I am relating in a meaningful way with others. And increasingly more now, I have been combining my writing and sharing with learning and meeting.

Quiero pediros e invitaros a enviarme una palabra que tenga un significado especial para tí.

AFFINITY Affinity has been described by Sara What this word means to me: Affinity is the word I identified with when beBee introduced it to me - today I link it to A-Players. I can see that a part of what I call my "workable life". The opposite for me of Affinity is Bozo Bozo is the word Steve Jobs identified to describe the kind leadership that are B-Players, the kind organizations hires that dumb down their organization down, Steve Jobs last instruction to the Apple Board was to ensure Apple hire A-Players.. This is what I personally want to avoid and what I also call an element of the "branded life". https://www.bebee.com/producer/@cityvp/workable-life-intelligence

A word that has meaning to me is CONTRIBUTION Contribution is defined as : 1. A gift or payment to a common fund or collection. 2. The part played by a person or thing in bringing about a result or helping something to advance. 3. An article or other piece of writing submitted for publication in a collection. 4. See What this Words Means to Me What this word means to me: Is how William Hewlett and David Packard defined the word CONTRIBUTION : HP Way: CONTRIBUTION. Do our products offer something unique—be it a technical contribution, a level of quality, a problem solved—to our customers? Are the communities in which we operate stronger and the lives of our employees better than they would be without us? Are people's lives improved because of what we do? If the answer to any these questions is "no," then Packard and Hewlett would deem HP a failure, no matter how much money the company returned to its shareholders.
