our growing ability to connect through technology has not lessened our anxiety about being disconnected; it’s magnified it exponentially.

Every Great Marriage Is a Self-Centered Marriage

Sometimes when people are under stress, they hate to think, and it’s the time when they most need to think. –BILL CLINTON

Apparently, Facebook and all the other exploding social-networking sites know me pretty well. The same goes for my cell provider. What they all seem to know about me is that I have an intense craving. I have a deep longing for something, something that I’m not always fully aware of. But all these companies know what I want. They call it by one name. Connection. We human beings crave this thing called connection.

Connection. In so many ways, we as people and as a society are experiencing more “connection” than ever. So why is it that, despite all this connection, we still crave even more? I believe that our growing ability to connect through technology has not lessened our anxiety about being disconnected; it’s magnified it exponentially.

NOTE (my commentary)

STRATEGY:

DISCERNMENT QUESTIONS
What gets my attention?
Do I understand the need or problem?
Do I understand the potential solution?
Do I understand how to apply that strategy?
What questions do I have for the experts? What might be the answers?
Who needs to hear this?
What do I do next?
