Yes, I’m at the top of Activerain, but that doesn’t mean I can stop learning! I’m going to my first Raincamp on Wednesday here in Portland and why am I doing that? Well, to put it simply, though I can teach people how to use Activerain, there are still people who can teach me.
I will never pretend that I know everything. There is always something new and exciting in business, technology, and life, and there will always be someone smarter and better at it than me. The key for me is to learn from them and to never forget that the day I stop learning is the day I stop living.
Life is all about education. I truly believe everything in life is a learning opportunity. Twenty years ago if you told me that in less than 15 seconds I could tell one million people where I am, what I’m doing and even include a picture with that update, I would have told you were crazy.
But, today we have Twitter, Facebook, and all these other forms of media that do exactly that. They keep us in constant contact with the world while also connecting us with old friends that we haven’t seen in years. Heck, in some cases, like my wife’s, they put her in contact with relatives that she had never even met or even knew existed because her father died when she was four.
So, will I become a better and more productive blogger and Realtor on Wednesday. I know, without a doubt, that I will and also come away with new understanding of how I can use social media and blogging to reach even more people in my community in a more productive and community friendly manner.
