I have another blog or two that has really hammered away at two different organizations and two specific people. To the point that I have been sued by one and have destroyed a life long relationship beyond repair. Neither of those consequences rise to the level that I am overly concerned, what does bother me is the bad example I am setting for others that may be watching.
Generally I am not a vindictive person until I am cornered. Then I fight to the bitter end. That is what happened in both of those situations. One got into my pocket and the other tried to get into my pocket so I retaliated using online mediums. Probably not the best form of conflict resolution but it was the only power I had situations. When I have no real repercussions the bar to restraint is pretty low.
Now that I have justified my behavior the next question I have to ask is it really worthwhile? Not really. I have far more productive things I should do with my time and work on my business versus trying to destroy theirs. I have tons of opportunity and the ability to create opportunity where none exists. That is where my efforts will reside.
For those keeping a close eye. Sorry to disappoint for those in the crosshairs don’t take this as weakness as I will and can come back even stronger.
