The blog/Twitter conversation, Young PRs - Know Your Place, is the best exchange I have read in several months. All ages, read everything and take notes. A big thank you to Paull Young for compiling tweets, posts and comments!
Age and respect are daily internal and external battles. Sometimes the result is nasty and I just suck it up and live another day. My tone dripping in sarcasm, I joke about being 26 with an old, reincarnated soul to make up for experience I automatically seem lacking because I am young. This blog has been the place for experience versus expert debate. My writing has matured and I have learned many a lesson the hard way. We must emulate the authenticity and transparency we preach and practice restraint. It takes time to learn how to listen.
A perfect segue to Communicators Anonymous step of the month, Nine: Made direct amends to such people, wherever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others. We can be of maximum service to ourselves and industry only when we are fit.
...We should be sensible, tactful, considerate and humble without being servile or scraping. [BB, page 83, line 25]
Token amends aren't sufficient!
Don't rush into amends!
Instead of posting a new Zany tidbit, let's revisit: Respect World Game.
