What a week. May has traditionally been a big month for SharePoint, and the SharePoint Conference NA was chock full of announcements.
In observing many people present ideas, pitches, and presentations over the years, I continue to hear the following phrases in meetings:
“Well, you know, um, I think that…”
“Well, maybe, we could…”
“I’m not sure about this, however….”
“This may not be the best idea, but….”
These are all examples of “Doubt language.”
Oh Seattle, you have become synonymous with work for me. And not as much play.
I realize this after many trips in the past few years where I am running and driving from meeting to meeting and client to client and cursing you in a way. As I’m usually fumbling in a rental car, trying not to text, starting a conference call, and figuring out where the hell I’m going as I’m most of the time on the Eastside and also driving in the rain after 12 years of living in California.
