Sharing

 

I often keep things to myself. An encouraging word ends up not leaving my lips. A helpful hand is not extended. A bit of advise is filtered as unnecessary. I don’t make the effort. I don’t take the time. With a little effort, I could do a lot more sharing.

 

Information is one example of something that I could easily share more. I am grateful for those willing to share. Ben Domenech’s The Transom, Justin Taylor’s Between Two Worlds, Guy Kawasaki’s All Top, and other RSS feeds and things Facebook friends post, place things across my path that I never would have known about otherwise. At times it has really made a difference. I’m glad they’re willing to share.

 

I have an email folder that I place interesting articles I’ve come across. So I thought I’d share. The majority may not grab your attention. And don’t assume I’ve read, listened, or watched these beginning to end. I have only skimmed most of these. You never know, there could be one thing in this list that really makes a difference.

 

And if you come across something that matters to you, it is likely to matter to someone else. So, share.
