Today's LinkedIn Nugget

How many links can a lazy LinkedIn linker link if a LinkedIn linker is lazy?

(I know a few of you will not like this post–if you perceive it’s aimed at you, well, be honest, you know why.)


The answer to this adpated tongue-twister riddle: not very good ones, if any.

LinkedIn is not a numbers game.

Yes, connection requests come to you, from lonely people in far corners of the earth, seemingly without reason, but are they any good if you, yourself, are largely lazy on LinkedIn?

You cry that there’s no ROI for you on LinkedIn. ROI is the ratio of return on investment, not just a financial statistic, but your investment of time, quality and effort on LinkedIn that when short-sheeted, makes you look dull, lifeless, boring.

Who wants to engage in serious and rewarding business opportunities with your type of person? If anyone, he/she will not be a very helpful or valuable connection, right? No return, of course.

If you insist on doing the same thing over and over again, at least stop complaining.

Think about it: would you do business with you, based on what you portray on LinkedIn?

That’s me in the picture. I will get off my soapbox now.
