Dominic Evans is important. Dominic has dived into the social media pool and is learning to swim. Chris believes it’s really all about helping out the other guy. Chris is truly a golden rule kind of guy. He is one of my heroes. Chris, who didn’t know me from Adam, spent some time doing an interview with me for my paper. It wasn’t until it was published that I realized just how busy Chris is. And he took time out for me, one of those new swimmers out there with Dominic.
Lesson for today: pay attention and help somebody else. You never know when a smile, an ‘atta boy’, a compliment, can make a difference in somebody’s life. It’s not all about you.
With the object in mind to find out new things about me so we can make a connection, here are my five things you may not know about me. (I’m doing the sales edition, like Chris did).
1.I look up words in the dictionary. I need to know the origin of the word. One year of Latin in high school taught me this valuable trick. If you know the origin of the word, you’ll never forget it. Meme (rhymes with dream) – a relatively new word. Oxford zoologist Richard Dawkins used it in 1976 in his book The Selfish Gene. Meme consists of any unit of cultural information, such as a practice or idea, that gets transmitted verbally or by repeated action from one mind to another (wikipedia).
