Being Authentic


I haven't written much lately, and I can blame that on several reasons (I think reasons is a great synonym for excuses). First, a lot of my summer time has been spent in the pool rather than at the computer. And what time I have been spending at the computer, I have generally been devoting to working on a book about transforming IT departments in the new digital age.

Aside from that, I've also struggled with looking at some of my writing and wondering whether or not it is coming across as authentic as it should.

No, I don't mean that any of it is inauthentic in terms of I don't believe that it's true, but rather whether or not I'm falling into various traps that I've seen a lot of other bloggers fall into. By the way, choosing what appears to be the most fake diamond picture in the world for a post about authenticity was intentional. I promise.
