I over heard a comment someone made today, they said "so and so is the type of person who Google's himself."
I'm not sure what that means, but I immediately googled myself.
I usually use google as a tool, like one might use the library.
Google is a wealth of information and I take having it available 24/7 seriously.
For instance, have you ever Googled "Fainting Goats"?
Do youself a favor.
This got me to thinking. What if you were offered 2 choices.
1) You could stay the same old you and continue with your life as is or,
2)you could Google yourself and take over as the person who shows up 1st in the search results of your name.
You have to make up your mind, 1 or 2, BEFORE you Google yourself.
Maybe you're a billionaire on Google.
Maybe you're a successful landholder in Scotland.
Maybe you're a veterinarian in Iowa.
The question is,
Would you trade up?
For the sake of argument, I pretended that I and my siblings chose choice #2. Then we Googled ourselves.
Here's who we are now.
I turned out to be a star cross country athlete in Western New York State in the 1070's. I was actually voted into the Buffalo Sports Hall of Fame. Interesting. No wonder my knees hurt.
My older sister Molly...was just born on Feb. 23, 2009. Talk about your do-overs!
My older brother (who I shall call Bob) is a district sales rep for Canon. That's not much of a change for Bob. He'll be spending the day in the car, traveling from client to client.
He does that now.
My younger brother Pat, damn, this was a tough one. Turns out Pat was a Catholic Belfast Solicitor and was killed in 1989. It gets worse. He was shot 14 times while eating dinner with his family.
