The box is powerful. Uhhh, not that box. Get your mind out of the gutter. I’m talking about the electronic inbox. Ohhhh, the conversations that are hiding in there. My inbox has held shocking secrets, hosted conversations from those seeking advice, been a sounding board for business ideas, been a shoulder for someone to cry on, and even received invitations for dates. I really dig the latter. I mean dug. Don’t get me in trouble. See, that’s exactly what I’m talking about…The box and it’s power.
Sometimes, I’ve wondered what would happen if everyone’s inbox was exposed; busted wide open like the Ashley Madison client list. Would lives/lifestyles be destroyed? Would those who live public perfection be ashamed of their private indiscretions? Would people stop judging others because they will see that we are all flawed?
I hope our boxes are never exposed because they hold a heck of a lot of power. In the meantime, check out the power of your box. Would you be ok with your box being opened for all to see? What do you need to delete or clean up? If you have to wonder what you’d have to fix before your box is exposed, that says a lot. Remember, everything in the dark eventually comes to the light (a phrase my mom used to say that I hated at the time). Get your box in order and own your own power.
