The Ever Shrinking World Through Social Networking?

December 22, 2011 in Question of the day?

I have recently become a Facebook fanatic, I highly enjoy finding classmates I haven’t talked to in 20+ years just to see how their life has turned out. I am happy to report 90% of the time I am glad to see the overwhelming success, that most of the people I went to junior high school, high school and college with are enjoying in their lives. I have begun to notice a strange phenomena, I went to junior high school and high school in northern New jersey the Maplewood South Orange school district in the late 70s early 80s, I went to college in the Appalachian mountains at Western Carolina University in the late 90s.

I have begun to notice that some of the people I went to high school and junior high school with, our friends with the people I went to college with. This would not be such a strange occurrence in most people’s life, but since my high school life was in the early 80s, in my college life was in the late 90s, plus 5 states away and separated by 700 miles I began to think of what are the chances of more than one or two people from totally different backgrounds and geographical areas being friends or acquaintances. As of now the count is approximately 6 people from different times and points of my life also being friends or acquaintances with each other.

As I pondered this unique phenomena over the last several , weeks it began to dawn on me maybe it has nothing to do with time, distance or geographical location. Maybe it’s just that people who truly have things in common ( I.E Simla upbringing, similar religious beliefs, similar culture and a similar drive for education and success.) Will attract like-minded people as friends and acquaintances over time, so my question of the day. Is the world really that much smaller then we truly believe or is social networking bringing us closer together?

Job Security Or Your Integrity

September 30, 2011 in Question of the day?

My question of the day to the point of thought community, is what do you hold most important your individual integrity or your job security? I will begin this by saying there are pros and cons for both sides of this argument. As individuals our basic nature is survival. There is nothing wrong with a individual trying to make it in the world. But lots of people Go down the road, no matter what happens me and my family are being taken care of. It is not for me to question anybody’s mind set my basic question, is at the end of the day lying on your deathbed. Would you rather be able to say, I always spoke the truth no matter what the consequences are or I kept that job for 30 years, no matter how miserable I was day after day, week after week, month after month, year after year, decade after decade.

I will leave you with two quotes, I’ve always use to guide myself down the road of integrity.. “At the end of the day people can take everything from you but your word, say what you mean and mean what you say” and “luckily the choice between job security and integrity comes down to the simple fact only one of the two is replaceable
