When I joined a business networking group, we were taught to be able to give a summary of our business or product in the amount of time needed for an elevator ride—about 60 seconds. It was tough learning to be that succinct, and even now I want to use a few more words.
But what if you had to summarize your life in six words? James Emery White asked that question recently in his blog. I suspect that the 2008 summary would be drastically different than, say, the 2004 version. Economy, jobs, war, and weather have had their impact on us all.
