My younger sister wrote me this spring that she had read Dale Carnegie’s “How to Win Friends and Influence People.” She said the book improved her interpersonal interactions at work.
One morning I started my content curation tools on the internet, and to my surprise, the designers I tool I use most often had revamped the app.
I work in a mostly volunteer capacity at a cemetery. http://www.maplelawncemetery.org
What the app does is to find webpages for the purpose of putting content on Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn. Looking at it after its overhaul, I saw I needed to think of keywords for content that were both honest about what I am interested in doing, and valuable to people looking at me on Facebook, and on Twitter. The reality of whether the more fringe areas of my research were or weren’t going to fly in the face of other people squarely confronted me.
I don’t want to inadvertently confuse people.
Some of my ideas just weren’t going to work, I saw. Our Facebook page is small, but those people aren’t going to be swayed, I now believe, by where I had been putting my nose if I am being transparent.
There is an idea in business that employees don’t work for the boss, that in fact, the boss works for the employees. I work for the people who like the page. I don’t have the freedom to indulge every avenue I want to, if I don’t want to turn off the people I speak to, and it is probably true that new people I might possibly interest will have similar sensibilities to those who are already involved.

I hadn’t been aware the more fringe elements of my keyword research was a potential problem, and, without my input, a solution presented itself.
I had envisioned that I would find a strategy to make this work when the time came. With fresh eyes, I began to see how to better use my content tools going forward. In the process, I became, in a small way, a more honest person, at least more honest about what I am doing on social.
As the Buddhist maxim asserts: “Never lie, cheat, or steal.” I got a little more spiritual, yesterday, you might say. It was unexpected all the same.
