In the age of mass-sharing, self-obsession, celebrity worship and attention seeking, where everything screams to find out who you are, you have «to constantly labour on the presentation of yourself for public consumption.» (P. David Marshall). It is expected to be more concerned about being seen and validated by a certain scene than about the genuine impact of what you say, do or create. You need to make sure that even if not everything is fully lived/experienced/tasted, it is at least well documented, posted, viewed and liked – therefore validated: Pics or it didn’t happen.
If you’re an achiever, then you should already know that it’s your sacred responsibility to manage your multiple identities as you would manage multiple jobs. Building narratives and attractive stories, putting yourself out there and selling your personal brand – that could be your mission. And that’s possibly our mission to analyse and deconstruct this mess together.
