Words

Words are powerful when they’re delivered the right way. But they go largely ignored when they’re boring.

It’s not the words fault.  It’s not the message fault.

The messenger is to blame.

  • Ernest Hemingway once wrote a six-word story, “For sale: baby shoes, never worn.”
  • Seth Godin has become a thought leader influencing nearly every industry through the power of his 100-300 word blog posts.
  • The information network Twitter took the world by storm in 2006 challenging us to communicate in 140 character messages.

It’s not how much you say or even what you say that makes a message stick, it’s how you say it.

“A truly wise person uses few words” Proverbs 17:2

Do you ever put on an outfit and your kids look at you and say, “Dad you’re not going to wear that out in public are you?”  Yeah, I get that more often than I would like.  So maybe it’s time for me to head over to Abercrombie and Finch and pick up some new threads…ummm, at age 47 probably not a good idea, I think I’ll just stick with my dockers and polos for now. 

Well recently I was looking at my old blog and decided it was a little outdated.  So it’s time to be Out with the Old and In with the New.  I shut down my old blog on Blogger, contacted Gabe Taviano to design a new blog in WordPress and “WALLA”, here we go, a new and improved blog.  Gabe, I thank you and my children thank you.
