DJ. Social Media

“You have to be burning with an idea, or a problem, or a wrong that you want to right. If you're not passionate enough from the start, you'll never stick it out.” -- Steve Jobs

I've nailed it. Social media that is.

It's not, and never has been, about the tools.

No, it's about creative brilliance. The type of creativity that's found in the trenches, i.e. just when you're ready to quit, you find the energy to push through...one more time.

Nowadays, my inspiration comes more from the music scene than it does all the me-too sites that are forever trying to outdo each other. Oh, please!

But you're not me.

My advice. Stop following the crowd, and revert to a childlike state where everything is fresh, new and not inculcated with all the BS that I'm apt to read.

You are you and that's all that matters.

The thing is, we're fast approaching a place where everything looks the same -- blogs, Tweets and photos on Instagram. If you're not prepared to go crazy and do your thing, then you'll be forever doomed to a life of mediocrity.
