This above all: to thine ownself be true,
And it must follow, as the night the day,
Thou canst not then be false to any man.
Hamlet Act 1 Scene 3
The other day someone looked at my LinkedIn profile and all that showed was “Anonymous LinkedIn User.”
What about all the talk I hear from different people stating:
- Be yourself
- Be authentic
- Be relational
- Tell the truth
How is having your LinkedIn profile set to “Anonymous LinkedIn User” being authentic, being relational, being yourself and telling the truth?
If you are George Clooney I can understand why you need an Anonymous profile, but odds are you are not George.
I know it is Halloween but don’t hide behind a mask. Take a chance and let the world see you in all your wonderful glory, even on your LinkedIn profile.
To thine ownself and everyone else – be true.
You just might find some joy in it.
