What I Do

Wow Ben, this is an amazing post. Number 6 is what I did with you. Twitter has definitely been a double edged sword in my life. In some ways it has made me more insecure then ever (no matter what I do, someone in the world is doing something better), but in other ways it has brought friendships to me that I highly value that I would never have had without it.

Thanks for all you do Ben. Your an inspiration to me.

Thanks for writing this. Set the people free!

I think our focus on platform and doing the work has given us a humanistic mindset where we can fix our problems, which never works out for me too well. This is great practical advice and how to get beyond the prison of humanism. Thanks for sharing. I wrote a post with a similar take, but it's not practical at all :)

justin, feeling's mutual and i'm so glad you did.

thanks jeff!

and tyler great perspective

YES! love this!

This is such a great post, Ben, and certainly true of my own experience. Deciding to unfollow and unsubscribe from negative people has changed my mood in a lot of ways over the past year. I've realized that as a result, my own statuses and tweets are a lot less negative than they used to be. They're more focused on gratitude and professional interactions, too.

Excellent post, #6 is particularly important to me. thanks!

great stuff, Ben

This was beautiful. Thanks so much, Ben!

thanks for the kind words...

Wow...I think this article just got posted on the Twitter newsletter. Congrats Ben! Great post.

Simple and very applicable. I started my "un-following" a long time ago. Glad to see I am not the only one. Love the piece about learing from those ahead of you. Very valuable!
