I admit, I have always been a little impatient with technology.  Somehow I was born with the “when” gene not the “if”.  It has served me well in deciding where to live, what path to choose and the methodology to get there.  As one friend so aptly told me, “you are one of those people that has to swim across the river with the rope to determine where the bridge will be placed.”  I admit, there were times, when the current was too strong and I swam back to safety in order to survive. I realize I have had the luxury of a safe shore to return to.  For the most part, my tenacity (others might call me “stubborn”) eventually got me to the other side.  What it takes most of the time is neither the tenacity/stubborness nor the strength, but rather the belief in the path and the result.  Often this takes a leap of faith, but that is part of the process of acceptance of the result. I have always been determined to conquer my “what if’s.”

So enough of metaphorically speaking, as there is much to be said there, but may risk being “fluffy.”  After a nice off-line break in which I had the opportunity to catch up on much overdue reading and sleep, I found myself excited for many things in 2011.  This is what I wish to share with you.  You can call them predictions, you can call them wishes, you can call them dreams.  I will do whatever I can in my power to help them come to fruition.

Avatars and their meanings The avatar we create or image we post is the profile we portray for the masses that learn and process information visually. Why are we not be more mindful of that when we post? Of course, this is logical, and we hear over an over that images are more interesting to look at than text. Our mothers advised that you never get a second chance to make a first impression. When was the last time you looked at your profile picture? Is your logo up to date? Does it say anything about your business, or is it just a fancy way of writing the name? “A picture speaks a thousand words.” Imagine that. A thousand words is certainly more than 140 characters or 100 word profile.
