He Said I Make A Lot Of Promises. Uh oh!

January 21, 2012....picture perfect central Florida day...
Almost as good as a deserted island...
There's a time and a place for everything (but no definitive guide).

Yesterday while basking in the warm Florida sunshine and warm company of fellow Scouts, my Son told me I make a lot of promises. This frightened me. A lot. He didn’t say I keep a lot of promises.

Did I not pursue clarification yesterday because of the pain it may inflict on my psyche? Or did I exercise wisdom to allow space and time to get a better opportunity to ask about it? We’ll see…

What Will GREAT Look Like?

What will GREAT look like for you in 2010?

I can’t imagine being a professional and not being a LinkedIn member. But it’s not unreasonable at this point for many to still not be involved.

My wife is not on LinkedIn, however, I do believe it would benefit her to get started.

Anyway, through LinkedIn, which I read daily, I followed a link  – “What Will Great Look Like For You In 2010?” A quote from that link sparked today’s blog post.

So there are two messages today:

  1. Social media, like anything else, works best when used frequently
  2. All five of my blogs are free

A reader commented a few months ago, “You never ask for anything.”

It was, and still is, a question that leaves a funny feeling in my gut.

Why would anyone invest in five daily blogs, reveal secrets, success tips, insightful thinking, be vulnerable and transparent, and never ask for a nickel in return?
