You Are The Change You Seek, Not Social Media

We need to face the reality of social media.

It’s great for connecting with people, inspiration, and getting your message out.   But it’s busy, very busy.  Lots of people have lots to say.  And that’s good and bad.

It’s good because it adds new perspectives and knowledge. It’s bad because it can be overwhelming, difficult to be heard, drives a comparison mentality, and rewards short-term, individual gains over long-term, collective value.

It cannot replace your core purpose, your brand, or your business. It is simply a vehicle, to support communications, learning, and networking.

  • Choose your feed well.
  • Be discerning about who to follow.
  • Produce meaningful and original content.
  • Engage with others in a constructive and respectful manner.
  • Do not be afraid to block negative trolls.

Ultimately, it will be replaced by the next thing and that by something else.

You are the constant in your life. Your core raison d’etre, your relationships, your work, your value, must be able to stand independent of social media.

Put your efforts into who you really are, developing deep relationships with those who matter, and creating content/services/products, that will truly add value to this world, with or without social media.

You are the change we seek, not social media.

NIK DAVIS is a business transformation expert and has spent 20 years in the corporate world. Her comfort zone is order, logic and applying analytical tools to solve complex problems. She is also a keen observer of life, a writer and eccentric. Nik has recently returned to the world of work after taking a career break to spend time with her family. Upon her return, she found that her perspective had changed, as had the world she was returning to. Nik decided to carve out a new place in that world and mould some of it to fit her too. Nik sees life from quirky angles, shaped by experiences and the vast amount of knowledge we now have access to. She likes to write about her experiences and observations. To ‘tell it how it is’ and to find a more authentic way to live, whether in our professional or personal lives. Nik often talks about finding ‘The Third Way’. It’s a philosophy about life, having a personal life as well as a career, making money and being socially generous, being logical and sensitive, living by the rules of a society but not being afraid to challenge them, inspiring others to feel good but not for your own ego, giving rather than taking. Nik wants to make a difference to this world by getting people to see things differently, to try new ways of working but most of all, to re-discover our true selves and therefore reach our true potential. Nik also has two other persona’s: nikdavis which is where Nik writes about her deeply personal experiences of life. Nik runs a facebook group alongside this website to create a safe place for people to discuss the topics that are raised in her blog. Nik’s second persona is Lilly Isabella and this is where she shares her passion of fashion and design.

  1. Thanks Nik. Great post. Here, where life, culture and biz is reimagined is likely to endure. It’s about engagement. And relationships.

    According to a Gallup Poll I recall, global engagement in the workplace has eroded. Something of a tune to 15% are engaged.

    What that means to me (eroded my word, 15% engaged their words but just by memory) . . .

    As we emerge from the pandemic . . .

    People will be more ready for change.

    Being here? I believe we are in the right spot to be ready to go make a difference.

    Kudos to Dennis Pitocco and all of the people involved.

    Thanks for including me!

    blessed by being here,
