In today’s world, we literally are more connected than ever before. The vast majority of it is random when you think about it. Random in the sense that it’s not a purposeful connection, but more by someone else’s design. Sure you have a few friends on Facebo….err…that other marketing name they are trying to steal from the Meta Company in which there is a new legal battle going over but I digress.
The vast majority of ‘connections’ are not personal, not cultivated in any sense. You are simply just watching TV 2.0. Reading someone else’s thoughts, and ideas. That’s how our world is right now and it gets into everything.
I bought a scarf from Amazon. I received it the next day, thanks to Amazon Prime. I noted that it was made by a Chinese company.
This is not a problem itself but that same day, I received a voicemail that was all Chinese. This is marketing at it’s creepiest/automated-ness.
This is just like the time I got a voice mail from Japan! We are insanely connected in this world.
I’ve been doing a lot of trimming of my connections. Focussing on what I need to do, not what others need to feed their egos. This has been building for far too long and it is panning out. Got some interesting things to share soon ;)
