How to get better at anything
I often feel as if everyone wants to be the best at everything. Let me be the first to tell you, it will never happen. I do not mean that you can't be good or the best at something, it just means you physically can not be the best at everything. In my personal life, I just want to be a really good husband and father. In work my wife, I just want to create something that someone will consume and find valuable in their life. I don't want a ton of followers on Instagram, Facebook or really any social media platform. The problem with trying to be great at social media is that it is not really social at all. Facebook has become a sounding board for many people. It is a a place where likes and shares have become a replacement for real face to face interactions. I can not tell you how many conversations that I have been a part of that starts off "Did you see on Facebook?" No, no I did not. Social media will never replace the benefit of a face to face meetings. It will never replace grabbing a cup of coffee and catching up on life. It will never replace relationships. If you want to get better at something then start with building or in many cases rebuilding your relationship with real people.
