My friend Charles Isidi talked me into joining him in sharing #OneGiftADay with my network this Christmas.
Below is the intro message for his email list signup page:
For Christmas this year, I’ve decided to give you an unconventional gift every day starting on the 19th of December, call it my little #7DaysOfChristmas. I want to share my lessons from the year, random musings, music and video playlists, books and notes from dusty diaries that may inspire you to thankfulness this season and an intentional 2019.

Today, I will be sharing my first gift for Christmas.
Sometimes I think we don’t realise the implications of what we’re doing in our digital world. Whether you realise it or not, you’re making history.
Whether you are a blogger or not, this is relevant to you. Every tweet, every blog post, every comment, every Facebook update is a footprint you’re leaving on humanity.
100’s of years from now, the same way we’ve studied the writing on the inside of caves to understand those who came before, people will study our blogs, our Facebook walls, our twitter and streams and our digital footprint.
We’re actually making history and creating art. That’s why what we do goes far beyond ROI, low cost marketing, monetisation, and all the other things we spend our days worrying about.
Make a decision to approach life, business, love, and everything else that matters with the vision of leaving everybody who comes in contact with you better off than when you found them.
