What Is Failure?

Failure = Character

Failure is all about your perspective. One person’s “failure” is another person’s “learning experience” is yet another person’s “readjustment.” Which one is yours? Which one are you? Why?

Rude

I just received a very rude message on LinkedIn. Here’s the bulk of it:

“I’ve watched who you have attached to in recent weeks, and really, you are just a LinkedIn attachment magnet attempting to go after every connection you can find (quality certainly not being a factor). Since you offer nothing of substance, I’ll be actively informing my friends about the timesync loss that happens when they connect to you. Most have fortunately figured this out for themselves after reviewing the empty nature of your messages and connections in recent times.”

Now, I can admit that I have a wide variety of contacts and that I’m a power networker. But, no substance? Well, that I certainly take offense to. Let me ask you: Would you send an email like this to a new connection? Me neither. I can also admit I’m an acquired taste and that I do things in a more outgoing, aggressive way….but the “empty nature of my messages?” Has this guy ever seen a post of mine? Anyhow, just sharing it with all of you to show two main points: 1) You can’t please everyone; and 2) Maybe we should stop assuming the worst in people.
