Has anyone noticed that all of the articles on Linked, Facebook, Medium all have the same structure, the same self-indulgent air that, top 10 list feel that makes me zone out after about ten minutes.

Is anyone else getting sick of all of these pearls of wisdom which drip down from the slew of articles published every day on sites liked LinkedIn, Medium, Facebook and more?

Articles about self-improvement.


There are so many of these posted every day, you could spend your life just reading about how to improve your life. Somehow, I don't think the people who are really getting ahead are spending the time to write this stuff.

Or how about the fawning over people who seem smart because they have people fawning over them. I think Tim Cook is probably a hard-working smart guy, but the cult of celebrity has built him and others in position of power into demi-gods. It's no wonder executive pay has gotten totally out of hand.

Endless adulation and fawning over a few tech stars

He's so brilliant! Eveything he says is so brilliant! Blah, blah, blah.

It's not that I don't find these tools helpful, I do. I love reading thought-provoking, original articles on Booksie, or Medium, or any other site. And I love hearing about what my friends and colleagues are doing on LinkedIn. Just spare me the endless stream of self-help pap as well as the over-the-top fawning of a select few who are really no smarter than the rest of the unwashed masses.
