You would be surprised at the small number of those things. I am thinking about it now: - on FB, I'm thinking I may scroll past 100 posts for every like or comment where I actually engage.. it may be more than that. - in real world... the ratio for priority with "folks" is even higher.. 1000s of folks around.. I'm actively engaged with maybe 5... - jobs and family... they rank the highest.. and even they rarely get undivided time and attention. - I spend nearly all of my time concerned about what God thinks of me and my actions... thankful for grace abundant and free. Primary contributing factors seem to be the degree of "I can count on you" for: BS drama, not being reliable, blame game, untrustworthy, having my back... Yep, that explains the extremely low ratio... perhaps it is better to be shallow, and self interested.
#GameOfThrones goes on no matter the approach. Email is like sending a raven... you never know when a dragon will answer and come calling.
