I’m so sick of reading about the bad. Actually I blame it on Shel Israel and his morning Twitter report on the sorry state of things. But Shel is just reporting it, it’s not his fault. So I’ve got 5 items for you to do some thinking on. See if you can figure out the theme here.
Scott Monty drives a point home that all social media people on the inside looking out need to know, It’s not about you!
David Armano explains why giving begets giving prompted by Chris Anderson
Seth Godin explains why spreading yourself too thin aint’ a good thing.
The Kolbe A™ Index/Instinct Test: IQ tests tell you what you can do. Personality tests tell you what you want to do… the Kolbe A™ Index measures what you WILL or WON’T do. Check it out.
The rise of social media has made us all influencers and with that responsibility comes the notion that you can make a difference as long as you continue to give and not take.
See what the theme is? Social media and conversations are really not about you and what your needs are, they are about the other person or the community as a whole that you are a part of. Do what you do with the other person in mind for a day and see what happens. or better yet instead of trying to be some person everywhere, try concentrating on being some one in one place.
The basic rules of engagement do apply in social media – off line no one likes the person who only talks about themselves – why should on line be any different?
