I like to joke that I’m congenitally Irish and therefore capable of bloviating on anything, anytime. Well, today, I’ve had my comeuppance. Got nothing to write about. Zip. Nada. Zero.
So I’d like to pass along a few bits of wisdom that have been handed down to me over the years. When you find yourself in a situation where you are unable to produce, don’t offer bulls–t as a substitute. When you find that you can’t produce, admit it.
And, when you find yourself in the corollary situation of not knowing something, of being asked a question that you can’t answer, admit that you don’t know. Then (and this is the crucial part) promise to find the answer — and go find it. Remember, never promise and fail to deliver.
There you have it: no bulls–t from me in place of a blog, ad admission of the blank mental state I find myself in, and some solid advice that has worked for me for more than 20 years in business.
