Who’s Life?

by Miki Saxon

http://www.flickr.com/photos/gi/127555697/A client is contending with what is becoming a serious problem in her organization.

Her people are so busy following, discussing, critiquing and, at times, judging their teammates that their own work is suffering.

The interest isn’t new but the rise of social media, both internal and external, is exacerbating what used to take place around the proverbial water cooler.

What is it these days? When did this fascination with every nook and cranny of other people’s lives start displacing one’s own?

Is this oh-so-prevalent voyeurism really a product of the Internet and the rise of social media or does it stem from something else?

Is it real interest, whether harmless or prurient, or is it an effort to fill the gaping hole left when people pour their energy into the external and cyber worlds at the cost of knowing and liking themselves?

Getting to know yourself and your MAP  may not be as much fun and is definitely more work than following and commenting on other people’s lives, but in the long run it feels pretty good to lose that hollow feeling.
