On the other hand…
I wonder if I look my Twitter followers, forum members, and Facebook friends and see more influence than I really have. I wonder if I think too much about expressing my next earth shattering idea, at the expense of sharing with those in my immediate physical vicinity.
Could I be missing out on sharing my best ideas with those that would benefit most? Do I really have more influence among my “tweeps” or with those with whom I come into daily physical contact? My wife, children, friends, coworkers, employers and employees? Am I so focused on the the Twitterverse that I’ve looked past the universe of interconnected relationships that I can reach out and touch?
What if, in addition to posting to my blog, I printed out a few copies of my idea, and handed them to a few close friends? Instead of waiting for the Facebook likes and retweets to roll in, what if I handed them a folded piece of paper, and said, “I’d really love your thoughts on this…want to have lunch tomorrow?”
Why wouldn’t I do that with this post?
