Mentally strong people avoid giving others the power to make them feel inferior or bad. They understand they are in control of their actions and emotions. They know their strength is in their ability to manage the way they respond.

Great list of things to avoid as a leader:

  1. Waste Time Feeling Sorry for Themselves
  2. Give Away Their Power
  3. Shy Away from Change
  4. Waste Energy on Things They Can’t Control
  5. Worry About Pleasing Others
  6. Fear Taking Calculated Risks
  7. Dwell on the Past
  8. Make the Same Mistakes Over and Over
  9. Resent Other People’s Success
  10. Give Up After Failure
  11. Fear Alone Time
  12. Feel the World Owes Them Anything
  13. Expect Immediate Results

We will never have Web 3.0, because the Web’s dead.

Have to agree that this is inevitable. But still today, I rely on my desktop/laptop to do any REAL work.

It shows they’re really fearful of being displaced by a mobile upstart. However, why would bolting on a mobile app to a Web 2.0 platform (and a very good one at that) change any of the underlying dynamics we’re discussing here? I doubt it.

Case in point… I recently posted an image of my daughters’ 2nd birthday. Guaranteed response, right? Here’s the breakdown of engagement after a full day:

  • Instagram: 23 likes, 8 comments
  • Facebook: 11 likes, 3 comments

But here’s the thing, the number of “friends” on Facebook greatly outnumber the number of people who request to follow me on Instagram. The percentage of engagement is significantly higher, at least in my circle, on Instagram. It’s no wonder why Facebook “needed” to buy Instagram. Just hope that they don’t mess it up.
