Whenever I scroll through LinkedIn, the only online social silo I visit on a frequent basis, I’m overwhelmed with emptiness. The things people do for a living seem without value. We, humans, seem to keep each other busy with doing useless things. Just as we’re addicted to empty calories in our food, we are addicted to produce empty calories for work.
But then I realise that those who do create value are busy doing that. They don’t have time to post vanity pictures. They simply do, don’t tell. They don’t hang around on LinkedIn. LinkedIn is a space for those who have time to tell. I don’t want to be one of those. I want to be one of those that do.
