As yesterday I celebrated my birthday, I shared some advice I would have given to my younger self.
On LinkedIn, on your birthday, the present they give you is a deluge of messages from you connections IN YOUR MESSAGE INBOX. Add that to the spam messages you get daily and the people thanking you for endorsements you actually didn’t give and you have an inbox that is fried.
I surprised my adult daughter for her birthday by showing up at a party she was having. Is it a coincidence that the only two people in the room that weren’t drinking were me and my daughter’s boyfriend? It was obvious there was more to this than just luck.
I wish I had the experience and wisdom then I have now because I would not have been in such mortal fear for Michelle and my failure as her Father. God knows his work and Michelle is in many ways, most like me (despite her frequent denials) of all my children.
