Does this need to be said?
The comedian Craig Ferguson said something that resonated with me. “Every time you want to say something, whether it be an argument or trying to make a point ask yourself these three questions,
- Does this need to be said?
- Does this need to be said by me?
- Does this need to be said by me right now?
That’s been a more recent addition to my tool chest. I love that quote, because we all go through life wanting to say things. Sometimes a status update on facebook or a tweet isn’t long enough. Sometimes you just want to talk out loud. In either case, you never have enough room to make your case, so this blog is really about that, creating a space to share some information about what I think is important or should be thought about.
A quick note…
This blog has evolved. One of my passions is “sustainable business” and so I tied it together with a green emphasis to get that point across. That worked…kinda. It’s not that I didn’t believe in the idea, it’s that those ideas in business aren’t established. People are trying them and there are a lot of tests, but these days, people are just trying to hold on to a job or trying to keep the company going. Readers don’t want to hear about all the bad things they are doing without having any money to make changes. Now, changes shouldn’t take much money and there are many people out there who are making something happen. So, as my ideas evolved, so has this blog.
This blog is about sharing ideas. I hope that people can read and get a different perspective, share articles with friends or just pause for a moment and think about what was said. I’m not changing the world, I just want people to think.
Who am I?
My name is Wes Chyrchel and it’s taken me a long time to figure out what I like, what I don’t like and what inspires me. It’s an ongoing project. Two of the topics that I am passionate about the most is web development and sustainable business. I’ve been in the web business for a long time, so I’ve seen it all, the good, bad and ugly. I’m looking forward to sharing some of my thoughts about this wild and fast paced industry. Sustainability has been used more recently to describe “being green,” but before that meaning, it meant living within your means. A sustainable business is one that can support itself. To keep a business sustainable is a huge task and isn’t for the weary. This blog will share my thoughts on both of these topics.
