So Connected, but So Disconnected!

It is amazing to look around and realize that so many people are connected to the Internet and to each other because of applications (i.e.- email, Twitter, Facebook, MySpace, etc.), and mobile devices these days.  Yet, with all those connections that should help us build and grow relationships, we realize that at the same time we are all so very disconnected.  What a contrast!

One of my professors in the technology field sent me this link to a free e-book by Seth Godin.  It really speaks to the fact that we are all so connected and yet, so disconnected.  Here is the link to Seth's e-book entitled "What Matters Now."  http://sethgodin.typepad.com/files/what-matters-now-1.pdf

In addition, with all of the presentations and speaking engagements I have been pivileged to deliver lately, I want to share with you a link to a Michael Josephson poem on YouTube called "What Will Matter."  I have shared this poem in the past in one of my LMDC monthly emails which you can sign up for at:  http://lmdc.dcsnetlink.com/.  Here is the link to Michael's poem:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y-Lm_U9yEP0

Again, I encourage you to take time to reflect during this holiday season.  Think about what really matters and to whom you matter.  You can make a difference in your own life and the lives of those around you that you influence.  Enjoy....Merry Christmas!
