Once upon a time, a real estate developer figured out that one way to save a lot of money was to put a mirror in the lobby next to the elevator banks. People would happily look at themselves in the mirror while patiently waiting for the elevator… meaning that the developers could get by with one fewer (expensive) elevator for a high rise condo building.
As a Boston real estate blog writer I’m often asked why I don’t have comments under each blog post, yes I can turn social media (blog) into a giant mirror. “I wonder what they think of me?”
It’s human nature to care how strangers think about us. It’s more important, though, to wonder how they feel about themselves.
