The Sixth Stage of Chris Brogan

Bald BroganPhoto_091408_007Back in January, I wrote a fun little blog post called "The Six Stages of Chris Brogan":


IGNORANCE > COMPETITION > AWE > FORGETFULNESS > LOVE.


I left the sixth stage undefined.


Today, I'm ready to define the sixth stage as simply ACCEPTANCE (h/ts to all the folks who commented on the last post, and to Danny Brown and Andrew Weaver, who pointed out that the dude abides).


See, after you go through the first five stages of Chris Brogan, you've learned a lot from the marketing genius, you've hopefully found your niche, your "microfame" in social media, as Chris might say. You're happy for you to be you, and for Chris to be Chris.


Thanks, Mr. Brogan, for all you teach us.
