They Are Watching

 

They're watching!

 

This morning, I turned on the computer and read some of my daily news. Sadly, I read that one of the college player around here who was arrested for disorderly conduct and drinking. This hit my thought process on how people, no matter who you are is seen in the public eye.

This twenty-two year old kid has his whole life in front of him. A bowl game is coming up and he is at the prime of his life. Now this giant ink spot on his record may truly hurt his future.  Which is sad, one night of bad decisions and he may have blew his shot.

See, whenever you are out in public, people notice you and how you act. You truly don’t know who is watching or who you will run into. Could be your boss, your client, friends, or a prospect. If you are doing something stupid, chances are they will see and throw up a wall against you.

Everyone says they want privacy, but really with all the social media like Facebook, LinkedIn, tweeter, etc. we really don’t have it anymore. Anyone can find you and how you act in public.

This means that you should still be yourself, but be smart. Don’t go out drinking with underage people in and get in a fight. You’re boss, future boss, or clients can and may find out.  It’s basic, think before you act and make the right choices. I don’t care who or where you live, you can still make the right choices to not look like a jerk in front of everyone.

Also your Facebook pages, you need to drop the pictures of yourself drinking and other bad things. Employers review your Facebook and what kind of lifestyle you live. If you block them from looking, your profile picture could still say it. Just be smart, take down the drinking pictures, besides no one wants to see you drunk.

If you make smart choices and do the right thing you won’t end up like this college sports player. How many times do you see a famous person do something stupid and then their name is dragged through the mud? That could happen to you and could hold harsh responses.

Making the right choices is key in this Savage World; that you aren’t just living in, but beginning to own!
