Transparency, it’s an interesting concept. How much about ourselves and our lives should we share online, in public, with another human being and as leaders?
The truth is there is no answer because it is a decision we must seek individually. The most important person in the world that we ought to be transparent with, is ourselves.
Recently I found myself re-watching the movie; “Eat, Pray, Love,” based on the book by Elizabeth Gilbert and there is a quote in the movie that rings true for all of us.
It discusses how the Physics of the Quest is a force in nature governed by laws as real as the laws of gravity and it goes something like this:
“If you’re brave enough to leave behind everything familiar and comforting, which can be anything from your house to bitter, old resentments, and set out on a truth-seeking journey, either externally or internally, and if you are truly willing to regard everything that happens to you on that journey as a clue and if you accept everyone you meet along the way as a teacher and if you are prepared, most of all, to face and forgive some very difficult realities about yourself, then the truth will not be withheld from you.“
So what are your thoughts and feelings about transparency online? I really want to hear from you so please, share below what this means for you and let’s talk!
