Excellent point. When I first read your message, it seemed a bit matter of fact and almost mocking. The more I thought about it this evening and re-read it, your message made more sense. It hit home for me. My biggest fear is clicking the "publish" button - I'm afraid people will think my thoughts are irrelevant. Thank you for this!

Best thing I've read all week.
Ben Kunz originally shared:
 
Randomness
Some people I know wonder why I post so much on G+, Facebook, Twitter, etc. What if strangers find out I'm not home? they ask, and their hints of fear rise -- clients firing them, job interviews lost, relationships broken, or just acting dumb. But my motivation is just this: I'm exposing myself to randomness. All the best things in my life have occurred because I stepped outside with no plan and no idea what I would do. A former newspaper editor was a dick; he called the office one day, asking for a ride, I gave it to him, we ended up friends and when he left for a hot-shot consulting firm, he called again with a job offer that changed my career to marketing. Or in the most important moment of my life, I stepped onto a college sidewalk -- a one-way path across a campus green 200 yards long -- right next to a gorgeous redhead in spandex and a crew shell. I wouldn't usually approach such a girl, but we had to talk, for about 10 minutes. 15 seconds earlier or later I would have missed that chat. That girl is now my wife. Randomness is cool. Start typing. Get the fuck out there.

New research explains how feelings of boredom can both strengthen solidarity within your in-group and heighten hostility toward outsiders.
