This is not easy for me. In the blogging age that we now live in, sharing our thoughts and our lives on-line comes second nature for so many. Not so for me.
It has taken me months just to get from my first post on Medium (a one sentence post, mind you) to this, my second post! And both posts are strictly meta, talking about what I’m talking about!
But I guess these posts are good because they share with you my voice. And so, to encourage regular posts, I will try my best to post as soon as I write, bypassing second drafts or any real polish. That’s the only way I’ll gather any motivation to put finger to keyboard.
And I must remind myself not to age myself by refusing to dive into those popular activities of the young‘uns. I will out myself right here right now as someone who has never stayed in an AirBnb (no thanks!), never ridden an Uber or Lyft (gasp!) and who thinks Snapchat is for the birds. And no, I am not 120 years old.
But I digress (just aged myself again!). All I mean to say is that to not stretch oneself is to ossify, and I am definitely anti-ossification at this point.
And the other reality I must come to grips with is the fact that we live in an era of personal brand marketing, and I think it’s here to stay. With the internet, everyone has a microphone. And to not pick it up and use it is to be left behind to wither. I refuse to do that.
On this blog, I will articulate my musings on technology and Silicon Valley. I will also pontificate on topics I deem relevant to my coaching clients or anyone else seeking an executive coach.
I hope you like what you find here. Please follow me/subscribe/like or whatever the heck they call it (can’t believe I’m doing this). Wish me luck, and see you around!
