“Who would be what he is, desiring nothing extra?” –from Renaissance author Michel Montaigne.
I am not known to quote philosophers, but I came across this statement, which I found most thought-provoking.
It played in my head as I was speaking for 30 minutes to a roomful of smart business pros.
I was pleased to see they were paying keen attention. NO smartphones open…writing away…
Each of them (and I reviewed their LinkedIn profiles ahead of time) could say so much more than what he/she had shown on the LinkedIn personal and company profiles.
My take-away points to them: say more, show graphics, demonstrate why you do what you do.
They desired more, but had not shown a whole lot extra.
Perhaps that’s why they were taking notes…
And a note for you: I will be taking the next 2 weeks off from daily blogging as I concentrate on the book I am writing.
I look forward to resuming the blog in the new year.
I wish you happy holidays and a peaceful (!) prosperous new year.
