How bright is your bulb, and where does your light shine?
Stop worrying about how you can use social sites and tools to draw attention to yourself.
Stop trying to come up with a cool new term, and start focusing on how these concepts can impact others.
Stop worrying about how much you GET from social media, and concentrate on how much you can GIVE AWAY.
Stop navel-gazing. There are much more interesting people than you.
Stop worrying who has the brightest bulb. Your light grows brighter when you shine it on others.
Stop feeling like your efforts aren’t succeeding because someone else has more links/followers/comments than you do.
Stop focusing on metrics, start focusing on people.
Stop thinking that YOUR way is always the RIGHT way (looking for mirror on this one).
Stop thinking ‘What’s in it for me?’ and start thinking about what’s in it for everyone else.
Stop promoting. Start teaching.
Stop thinking you are an ‘expert’. You can always learn more than you know.
Stop taking others for granted. When someone follows you or comments on your blog or subscribes to your feed, THANK them.
Stop trying to control how interactions happen and focus on facilitating them.
Stop thinking it’s about you. It’s about everyone else.
