When I saw this prompt, I thought of the original Code of Conduct Rule #20.
“Bottom line is to have fun, be open-minded, have a thirst for adventure, and a willingness to share.”
Willingness to share was and remains a core value of BootsnAll and I think that it remains alive when we co-created the Indie Travel Manifesto’s last value of “Share what you’ve learned with others”
Sharing in today’s world is something I don’t even know how to describe. There is more “sharing” in the form of social media than the entire combined history of mankind.
With the ease of sharing, comes a lot of less valuable messages in my experience. I say that as a person and leader of an organization that has shared “not valuable” stuff in the past.
When BootsnAll identified our core values in the fall of 2011, it became apparent what to share. Each message we share today, we ask ourselves, does this align with our core values?
In a world where it is so easy to share, what is worthwhile to share? So many messages are flying through, does it matter?
If a message is shared, but no one hears it, did it make a sound or a difference?
Share What You’ve Learned With Others
We all have something to teach each other, whether we’ve traveled or not.
What is something you have learned while traveling? Did you just learn about a new country/city/place you didn’t know before?
Did you just learn about a new country/city/place you didn’t know before? Tell us about it (and show us some photos!).
Have you learned some travel tips that you wish you knew before you started traveling?
Tell us and help teach those of us that haven’t hit the road yet.
