Yep, for me too phone = iPhone. The rest is just noise. Sorry guys, I have a love affair with my iphone.

How about having it close, but not checking it?

Only the thought that I have my phone close, gives me peace of mind :))

@Eleanor Pierce  Yep. True, but we didn´t conquer the world by choosing the easy stuff to do. Besides where is the fun in copy/paste?

@ginidietrich @Lara Wellman  That´s a great question. Maybe we should choose one day of the week and name it: "the day without a phone".

@Howie Goldfarb @Eleanor PierceSince I´ve discovered iPad mini, I am the happiest person alive. I read everywhere: on the bus or subway, at home or on holidays. Yes, I miss "real" books, but the benefit of having gazilion books in one place and the ability to connect to internet to read saved articles is irreplaceable.

Naturally curious people read a lot, which makes them excellent storytellers. 

True. There is a hunger inside that just doesn´t let you end the day without reading something.

@Eleanor Pierce  "it's always nice to have another excuse for reading more." Amen to that. 

Where would we be today without reading?!

For today only, the sidenotes don’t have to be intelligent or thoughtful…they can be funny or witty.

LOL.

The goals, of course, are different for each blog, but this blog wants to encourage debate, conversation, and even disagreements.

That´s cool.

Great post @jessostroff. Yes, it´s sad when this is happening to you, especially when you know you have put everything from your part for that relationship to work (been there, done that). Unfortunately, there are times when people are acting really selfish even though it´s in their own detriment. They guide themselves and act by feelings and emotions that have no place in a workplace. Yes, we are humans, but we have the privilege of a brain; we should use it.

As Warren Buffett says “It takes 20 years to build a reputation and five minutes to ruin it. If you think about that, you'll do things differently.” The keyword here is “THINK”.

@Eleanor Pierce So true. Repackaging can also trigger creativity, so it´s a win-win. 

I´ve been offline for two weeks and I have a LOT to catch up. You guys don´t stop.

I´m also late to the party. I am so sorry I missed it. I´ll catch up with all the comments.  

@ginidietrich Again, super congrats for the launch, for the book and for proving with each step (action, blog post, etc) that Spin Sucks, but honesty and genuinely caring for people, for clients, for the ones around you and not only, does not suck, but it is the key to success.

Great post @Eleanor Pierce and thank you for sharing your experience with us. 

I believe that for building a relationship (of any kind) it takes time and you have to be genuine about it: be interested in the other person, be thoughtful, share things/info and collaborate. It´s that simple and yet many fail to do it, thinking only about: "me me me".

I´ve found out about Gini and SpinSucks by... accident not so long ago (an year or so) and I was "sold". I found on SpinSucks everything I was looking for: information, advice, kindness (I love how Gini talks with every member of the community, but also how the community itself commmunicates with each other). I got to meet (online) wonderful people and professionals and to be in touch with them through social media.

For me it´s amazing the fact that I get to know professionals from other parts of the world, connect, stay in touch and share ideas, opinions, believes, etc. We got used to the social media, but if we stop and think about it, we might never meet the person at the other end of the line... ever, and yet, we´re in touch. Pretty awesome!
