Three Farmers and Two Geese
"I suddenly realized one day that there's like three farmers and two geese listening somewhere and I got sweaty palms." - Dick Clark

Clark didn't hesitate to learn a different type of music and a new kind of job. "I learned by the seat of my pants." If you don't find some enjoyment in what you are doing, it will show. Speaking with business professionals, I have heard "I know I have to learn social media, but I really think it's a waste of time" or "I don't have time to play around online." My prescription? Do what you like. For instance, if you like organizing things into pretty little groups - you might be a great candidate for Pinterest. If you need to use Twitter, but you don't like it or understand it - think of your five favorite famous people and follow them. Chances are, you will find a new reason to log on. Once you get in the hang of tweeting for fun, doing it for work will be less of a nuisance. Social media isn't going anywhere - so why not enjoy it?
I was planning to run the 2nd part of The Educated Emotion: People Talk series today. However, spontaneity and emotion took over and I felt it was appropriate to pay tribute and say goodnight to a great.
Rest in Peace, Dick Clark!
