Taking out the trash
Happy new year!
I’m looking forward to 2015 as a time for exploring, building, experimenting, discovering, and learning.
Many of us like to make New Year’s resolutions in January – which rarely survive February – but this year mine are designed to last forever.
I hereby commit to the following five resolutions:
No facey, no connecty.
Humans have heads and names. If you apparently don’t, I won’t connect.
Reject the hard sell.
If your first message to me is sales oriented, you’re dropped.
Do not feed the trolls.
If you lack an open and collaborative mindset, I won’t engage.
Do not feed the bullies.
Bully-boy tactics do not lend credence to your argument; in fact they do the opposite. If you try to force feed me, the conversation is over.
Shut the pop up.
If a pop-up interrupts my reading of your article, I won’t bother quitting the pop-up. I’ll just quit your article.
Apologies if this seems like a negative way to begin the new year. However, by taking out the trash, I intend to let the light shine in.
What are your New Year’s resolutions…?
