By now, most of us realize that most everything we say or do online is anything but private. As business owners this can be critical to the success of our businesses.
With every action we take and every comment we make, we have to consider how it would look, not just to our friends and family, but to our potential customers and clients.
Does this mean we should never voice our opinion on anything? Of course not. We’re not robots.
I am who I am, both on and offline, but sometimes I think we get a bit more courageous online, especially when it comes to controversial debates.
Our opinions could be dead right, but that doesn’t mean much if we lose respect for others in these discussions. When patience goes out the window and we lash out at others, the debate may be forgotten, but not how we acted.
How we act under pressure, speaks to who we are – to our character as a person.
What should we do then?
We don’t have to attend every argument we’re invited to.”
If we know a particular topic has a habit of hitting our hot buttons, maybe we should stay out of the discussion all together.
Just my 2 cents as always….
