I love this time of the year when I am able to slow down and spend time with friends and family and watch a few of my favorite movies. One of my all-time favorite movies is It’s a Wonderful Life.
As I watched that movie this year I could not help but think about the lessons the movie offers and how they apply to some of the struggles that I witnessed this past year. By reflecting on the journey and the positive changes that have occurred because of the journey, we can gather our strength and look forward to a positive future.
This year there have been lots of stories about how Social Media channels have been hijacked by various greedy, misguided, nasty, hateful people and how it has been overwhelmed by automated bots. Trying to stay on a positive and authentic course can feel like a losing battle sometimes. But when we reflect on the positive outcomes of that course we are renewed for that battle. With that in mind, I adapted the story of It’s a Wonderful Life with social media as the hero of the story titled, “It’s a Wonderfully Connect Life” posted on Linkedin.
I hope you enjoy it. Wishing you a wonderful holiday season and a happy new year.
