We Deliver!

"As you enter the house of God, keep your ears open and your mouth shut. It is evil to make mindless offerings to God. Don’t make rash promises, and don’t be hasty in bringing matters before God. After all, God is in heaven, and you are here on earth. So let your words be few. Too much activity gives you restless dreams; too many words make you a fool."
Ecclesiastes 5:1-3

Promises are dangerous things. I love this advice against rash commitments we cannot deliver on. But we do need to make promises and we do need to deliver. This applies as much to people supplying technology as to those of us who use technology to engage with our audience. So while all the content of this clip may not apply to you, listen to what futurist Patrick Dixon has to say about fulfulling promises.
