I’m still utterly intrigued by these “information hoarders” that exist out in the world. These are people that find little nuts of information and go hide it for themselves, or have expertise in something and won’t share…they’re unwilling to pass it on for fear that the information would somehow help others surpass them. Guess what? If that’s how you operate in life or business you’re doomed to fail anyways.
My experience has led me to the conclusion that passing valuable pieces of information on to your community, and yes even your competitors, makes YOU more valuable. It sets you apart from the rest of the pack. There is often a subconscious human transfer that happens (and obviously conscious as well) in which others will now always attach “value” to you and your name.
When I say information this includes the information you come across in your daily life, your knowledge, wisdom, and expertise; all of which SHOULD BE passed on in order to nurture your community, help people, and will allow for conversation and evolution of the information/ ideas.
Be part of the community, join in the conversations by helping, mentoring and sharing your knowledge. The other option is to go sit in the corner and hold on to the “information” that you have, which will do absolutely nothing for you other then isolate you from your own community.
I have to go, I have more information to share!! Cheers!!
