News on streaming service – Is it a matter of when?

I write this on the eve of Disney+ launch in Australia. With more and more streaming services coming to market, I wonder how long before streaming services like Netflix, Amazon Prime etc. before they start broadcasting localised news?

How long before one of the streaming services re-define what the local news is like? How long before streaming services start delivering news that matters than the current version of broadcasting TVs?

The local broadcasting channels have lifted their game in the last couple of years but still nowhere near that I would cancel my Netflix subscription anytime soon. In the last few years, I am used to paying for the privilege of enjoying my TV time without the intrusion of ads. Is it a possibility that to begin with, a streaming service partners with local broadcasting service to offer a daily news service (nationally)? What is stopping Netflix from being a one stop shop? Is it just a better of time before they become one?

Watch your attitude towards ‘problems’

One should focus more of their time on seeking solutions for their problems than staying engrossed in the problems they are facing. ‘Can Do’ always yields more results than ‘Can’t Do’. Surely there are things that are in one’s control and then some that there are not – focus on what can be controlled.

Keep a problem into your perspective but only for identifying an appropriate solution to it.

So are you focusing on problems or their solutions right now?

Better Questions or Better Answers

I am continuously striving to ask better questions – to myself, with my family and people that I work with. It is an acquired skill that needs to be continuously refined.

Questions, especially better questions will contribute to lifetime growth. Growth lies in uncovering the unknowns.

If you want a better answer, ask a better question. Formulating better questions will force you to get clear on what you want to ask and achieve. Garbage in, garbage out.

Don’t ask questions to show how much you know (or prove your superiority) but ask questions so that you can uncover more and to move forward.

On the value of a tribe

I came across this HBR article which focuses on the value of the tribe.

Tribe

Having the tribe is not the same as networking. Our personal tribes allow us to grow, learn and challenge the status-quo.

Once you have a tribe, focus more on providing and adding value than trying to leach of them. Offer value, share your passion for the things you have in common.
