A picture of an ordinary egg reached 53 million “Likes” on Instagram. It became the most-liked picture on the platform.

Over 17 million people participated in the Ice Bucket Challenge where they were doused with freezing water in the name of charity.

Movember – a moment challenging men to forgo shaving in November – has become one of the world’s top 100 non-government organizations.

Instead of spending your Easter getting caught up posting a picture of a plain egg or participating in one of the other crazy social media challenges, use your time today to enjoy the simple pleasures of the holiday. Roll a colored egg down a trough. Go hunting for golden nuggets. Bite off a chocolate bunny’s ears. Eat Peeps with your peeps.

Millions of people don’t have to post about it for it to be enjoyable.

 

About the Author leadership dots by dr. beth triplett

I'm the chief connector at leadership dots where I serve as "the string" for individuals and organizations. Like stringing pearls together to make a necklace, "being the string" is an intentional way of thinking and behaving – making linkages between things that otherwise appear random or unconnected – whether that be supervising a staff, completing a dissertation or advancing a project in the workplace. I share daily leadership dots on my blog to provide examples of “the string” in action. I use the string philosophy through coaching, consulting and teaching to help others build capacity in themselves and their organizations. I craft analogies and metaphors that help people comprehend complex topics and understand their role in the system. My favorite work involves helping those new to supervision or newly promoted supervisors build confidence and learn the skills necessary to effectively lead their team.
