Silver Bull (sidenote)

Silver Bull courtesy of Tim EllisI love a healthy diversity of opinions. It keeps the conversation colorful and our minds on their toes.  However, I’m not one to enjoy being misunderstood and then disagreed with.

Recently, I was told of a blog that mentioned my presentation to the PRSA wherein I purportedly implied that Social Media was a Silver Bullet. This is hilariously incorrect. Not only do I know that Social Media is not a Silver Bullet, but also I don’t believe in Silver Bullets.

I learned decades ago as a consumer product reliability engineer never to make absolute claims. You will eventually eat your words just about every time.

Don’t ever trust a silver bullet unless it’s coming out of a barrel at you.

In general, there are NO Silver Bullets when it comes to dealing with people. We’re all too (wonderfully) diverse.

If someone is crying out about a Silver Bullet, I promise it’s nearly pure Silver Bull.

See you in the conversation!
