I ran across a blog today where the author was saying how frustrated he was with people stealing his stuff and not giving him credit for it. It seemed to bother him so much that he was questioning what he was going to do with his blog after he returned from vacation. His name is Garry Conn and his post was entitled People are Really Starting to Frustrate Me.
It is something that would frustrate me too. The thing is that I think we have all been guilty of it at one point or another. My friend Matt was a bit frustrated with me that I didn’t mention his name in my post about the debate. At first, I argued that I did not steal his ideas directly, but I have to admit that through our discussion, new ideas were generated. And so some amount of credit was due him.
You know, part of this blog is about offering up what lessons I have learned in life so that maybe a few of you can learn from my mistakes. Not giving people the credit they are due is a mistake and I know it. I don’t know if I will flawlessly pull it off in the future. However, after thinking about this more, I do want to start giving people more credit for what they do in my life and what lessons they are helping me to learn. And hopefully pass them on…
This brings up another topic that I want to write about in a future post. It is about saying you are going to do something and then not doing it. It is about your integrity. If you say you are going to do something, you better do it. This is a lesson that I really need to work on. Luckily, I have friends like Matt who will always give me heck if I don’t live up to what I say I am going to do. For that I give him all the credit he is due. He certainly deserves it.
Lastly, I want to give a shout out to 2 simplicity bloggers I ran across. First there is Sara @ On Simplicity. Her blog is really refreshing. She is one who has a lot of original content and who I will certainly give credit to if one of her posts inspires me. 😉
Also I want to give a shout out to Jack @ Simple Sapien. His posts are very thought provoking. I like his one post entitled, 11 Signs You Should Quit Your Job. You will certainly see me writing more posts about work and career related stuff. It is a passion of mine. I just seem to be too wrapped up in politics and the economy right now so look for those types of posts after the election.
So that’s my Saturday Rap. Check back next week for three more great new blogs I have found.
