I'm not a yeller. Nor would you expect a slew of four letter expletives to fall from my mouth. Therapy and lots of personal transformational work has quelled the bursts of emotional ranting that were common in my younger years. In other words I’ve learned to press pause before I open my mouth.
But sometimes I forget.
Which is why I won't be tweeting an episode anytime soon. There will be no requests for my passenger to video the outburst and post it on Facebook or Instagram.
Why then, you might ask, am I even bringing it up here?
To make my point. Not every aspect of who we are, where we go and what we do needs to be shared.
I might not have control over the person I become when driving, but I do have control over what I choose to share on social media.
When deciding what is share worthy these are the questions I like to ask myself:
- Is it useful?
- Is it relevant?
- Is it representative of whom I am as a brand?
- Does it educate,entertain, inspire and/or convince?
- Is this something I wouldn't mind seeing on a billboard?
The person I become when driving would never make the cut - unless I am using it to illustrate a point - which in this case is that not everything is worth sharing.
