We see the world as we are. Many have said it before me. The perception that colors how we take in information and how we approach decisions also depends on the circumstances in which we find ourselves at the moment. Our attention and the attention of our readers is always divided -- part of us may be in search of that word or phrase that inspires; part of us wants proof.
Is what we're doing the right thing? Only we decide. Yet our availability to advice and connections depends on our frame of mind. And so does our readers'. That is the subject matter of this week's post at The Blog Herald. Let's go over there and see what I'm talking about.
And here's my story, for now. Today is my last day at my current company. We were acquired back in February. Our old parent company was based in France, which was a challenge at the time fries were being renamed 'freedom fries'. The new owners are based in Mumbai, India. This in and of itself presents a cultural shift that is only beginning to be felt at the moment.
My departure was not a choice, staying wasn't an option -- communications are not that important. I beg to differ. We demonstrate how important they are every single day through the connections that result from those communications in this space. New media is not about the tools. My money is on the conversation. And this space is certainly not about me as much as it is about how we can make sense of and (hopefully) execute ideas, together.
This space is more about you, your projects, your learning, your passions, and your feedback. What's your story?
