For over ten years, my friends and BJS fellow members have been pushing me to make use of technology and internet-based social-networking, for furthering the work of BJS. However, without giving serious thought to their advice, I just dismissed the idea and neglected it for 10 long years.
However, now I realize that I have missed a great - real great opportunity. Had I made attempts to be more techno-savvy, more members would have been added to my existing large network, and my friends would have multiplied. The quantum of work that I have done consistently in the last 27 years through BJS has been huge. However, technology would have enabled me to increase my activities multifold.
But, Now.. ‘Better Late Than Never’ - with this realization and without wasting any more time, I am now extremely happy to be active on face book and blog, and would make effective use of modern technology. I wish to keep chatting with you and remain connected.
The lesson that I learnt: Every advice or suggestion brings with it opportunities. One ought to keep ones ‘eyes’, ‘ears’ and more essentially ‘minds’ open.
One should not turn a deaf ear to suggestions, and opinions of others..
Else, ‘Golden’ opportunities may be LOST!
