Remember to be more social & less social media

I enjoy social media as much as the next person, it’s become part of my life just as I’m sure it’s part of yours. Without social networks, I probably wouldn’t have made nearly as many connections with people all over the world with similar interests.

This week we lost a wonderful guy who in hindsight was using social media as a way of screaming out his pain, yet we all didn’t see it. No one is at fault, there’s little we can do to change things, but might I be so bold as to suggest, that if you have the good fortune of being able to pick up the phone, visit and hang out with friends, do it! It’s great to keep up with what people are doing, engage, but it’s better to spend time with people and make real memories with them, not just read about and comment about them.

To my family and friends, expect a call cause I hope to see you round the dinner table soon.  People in my industry, perhaps we should all have more get-together’s too and lets build a real community.
