It’s difficult not to scream at the latest headlines.
As a news junkie, former journalist and public relations professional, I need to know what’s going on in the world. Absorbing the good, the bad and the ugly can be both a blessing and a curse. One minute I may jump with joy and the next, I may yell profanities at my screen.
I feed my addiction to the 24-hour news cycle because it helps me grow as an individual and a communications consultant. For all of us, information is key to building greater understanding. It helps us identify emerging trends and issues. It guides our next steps. It reveals possibilities for positive change.
