How I Beat NY Times to the Story

Privacy Vanishes?
Privacy Vanishes?

What’s one of the most obvious reasons we lack self confidence?

There are a ton to pick from aren’t there?

And it’s human nature to dislike those that have a ton of self-confidence.

How weird is that?  Talk about paradox:

  • We desire self-confidence
  • We strive for self-confidence
  • We hate those that have an abundance

Two weeks ago, on March 16, I wrote a jungle jeff blog post entitled, Privacy Is A Myth.

The very next day, the New York Times posted the above front page article.

We said the same thing.  But I broke the story.

Social Media is here to stay.  Books (sadly) aren’t, and neither is the NY Times.

So, guess this makes me self-confident and antagonistic.


Are You Serious?

Are you serious about becoming better at what you do?

I’m guessing that most people will answer, “Of course”.

Gonna call your bluff.  Most people, and perhaps you’re the exception, just don’t have it in them to do the hard work .

They have the dream, the desire, the will, but something is missing.

The demands on our time are literally all-consuming. This simple fact makes it hard to stay focused.

When we lack excellent focus, our results are less than our expectations.  When this happens, we begin to doubt ourselves.  How do I know?  Because I’m just like every body else.  Just like you.

The one difference I’ve found that most others haven’t?  Tomorrow. I’ll share it tomorrow.
