I travel a lot. I get to see some amazing places and visit some incredible locations. I get to eat in fine restaurants and also at McDonald’s. I stay in five-star resorts and in fleabag motels. I experience a lot of contrast on a daily basis.
And no matter where I go, there’s always one thing that’s consistent. People are people wherever you go. Regardless of whether they’re wearing a Rolex or a Timex, whether they’re picking me up at the airport in a Mercedes S500, or a rusted out Yugo, whether they’ve got a bunch of letters after their name or they can barely write, people are the same wherever you go.
We all want to be appreciated, have fun, be loved and feel safe. We want to be happy. We want to make a difference. We want to have an impact.
Remember this as you’re spending time on your Social Media platforms. It’s not about technology, it’s about people. Always has been, always will be.
Take the extra minute to let people know that you’re thinking of them and that they matter to you. Never pass up an opportunity to make something personal. The personal touch is everything.
The world is getting smaller and folks are figuring out that we’re far more alike than different in so many ways. This is a good thing.
So travel, have fun, take pictures, collect experiences, and make sure that you remember that regardless of how sophisticated technology gets, people are people wherever you go.
