My industry is in trouble. That means I'm in trouble and my clients are in trouble. And I think I might have a solution. Maybe. I think we should ask louder, and more persistently.
Because I think our industry has lost the art of asking.
"Asking what?" I hear you mind asking. Well, there's a start. You're asking me what asking we've lost.
We don't ask each other what we think. Social media has driven us to be tellers, and there's so much telling that anyone who views our telling is already scrolling on before they've stopped to read.
The limited attention span and character space limits the telling to absolute statements with little room for relativity.
I keep waiting for someone to ask me what I think instead of telling me what I should think.
So, I'm going on a delayed Askgust. Not August, because we're too far into it to start this month again. The Gregorian Calender is evolving to include a new month, Askgust.
What do you think?
