Ethical egoism – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

 Ethical Egoism  Comments Off on Ethical egoism – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Feb 112016

Ethical egoism is the normative ethical position that moral agents ought to do what is in their own self-interest. It differs from psychological egoism, which claims that people can only act in their self-interest. Ethical egoism also differs from rational egoism, which holds that it is rational to act in one’s self-interest.[1] Ethical egoism holds that actions whose consequences will benefit the doer can be considered ethical.

Ethical egoism contrasts with ethical altruism, which holds that moral agents have an obligation to help others. Egoism and altruism both contrast with ethical utilitarianism, which holds that a moral agent should treat one’s self (also known as the subject) with no higher regard than one has for others (as egoism does, by elevating self-interests and “the self” to a status not granted to others). But it also holds that one should not (as altruism does) sacrifice one’s own interests to help others’ interests, so long as one’s own interests (i.e. one’s own desires or well-being) are substantially equivalent to the others’ interests and well-being. Egoism, utilitarianism, and altruism are all forms of consequentialism, but egoism and altruism contrast with utilitarianism, in that egoism and altruism are both agent-focused forms of consequentialism (i.e. subject-focused or subjective). However, utilitarianism is held to be agent-neutral (i.e. objective and impartial): it does not treat the subject’s (i.e. the self’s, i.e. the moral “agent’s”) own interests as being more or less important than the interests, desires, or well-being of others.

Ethical egoism does not, however, require moral agents to harm the interests and well-being of others when making moral deliberation; e.g. what is in an agent’s self-interest may be incidentally detrimental, beneficial, or neutral in its effect on others. Individualism allows for others’ interest and well-being to be disregarded or not, as long as what is chosen is efficacious in satisfying the self-interest of the agent. Nor does ethical egoism necessarily entail that, in pursuing self-interest, one ought always to do what one wants to do; e.g. in the long term, the fulfillment of short-term desires may prove detrimental to the self. Fleeting pleasure, then, takes a back seat to protracted eudaimonia. In the words of James Rachels, “Ethical egoism […] endorses selfishness, but it doesn’t endorse foolishness.”[2]

Ethical egoism is often used as the philosophical basis for support of right-libertarianism and individualist anarchism.[3] These are political positions based partly on a belief that individuals should not coercively prevent others from exercising freedom of action.

Ethical egoism can be broadly divided into three categories: individual, personal, and universal. An individual ethical egoist would hold that all people should do whatever benefits “my” (the individual) self-interest; a personal ethical egoist would hold that he or she should act in his or her self-interest, but would make no claims about what anyone else ought to do; a universal ethical egoist would argue that everyone should act in ways that are in their self-interest.[4][5]

Ethical egoism was introduced by the philosopher Henry Sidgwick in his book The Methods of Ethics, written in 1874. Sidgwick compared egoism to the philosophy of utilitarianism, writing that whereas utilitarianism sought to maximize overall pleasure, egoism focused only on maximizing individual pleasure.[6]

Philosophers before Sidgwick have also retroactively been identified as ethical egoists. One ancient example is the philosophy of Yang Zhu (4th century B.C.), Yangism, who views wei wo, or “everything for myself”, as the only virtue necessary for self-cultivation.[7] Ancient Greek philosophers like Plato, Aristotle and the Stoics were exponents of virtue ethics, and “did not accept the formal principle that whatever the good is, we should seek only our own good, or prefer it to the good of others.”[6] However, the beliefs of the Cyrenaics have been referred to as a “form of egoistic hedonism”,[8] and while some refer to Epicurus’ hedonism as a form of virtue ethics, others argue his ethics are more properly described as ethical egoism.[9]

Philosopher James Rachels, in an essay that takes as its title the theory’s name, outlines the three arguments most commonly touted in its favor:[10]

The term ethical egoism has been applied retroactively to philosophers such as Bernard de Mandeville and to many other materialists of his generation, although none of them declared themselves to be egoists. Note that materialism does not necessarily imply egoism, as indicated by Karl Marx, and the many other materialists who espoused forms of collectivism. It has been argued that ethical egoism can lend itself to individualist anarchism such as that of Benjamin Tucker, or the combined anarcho-communism and egoism of Emma Goldman, both of whom were proponents of many egoist ideas put forward by Max Stirner. In this context, egoism is another way of describing the sense that the common good should be enjoyed by all. However, most notable anarchists in history have been less radical, retaining altruism and a sense of the importance of the individual that is appreciable but does not go as far as egoism. Recent trends to greater appreciation of egoism within anarchism tend to come from less classical directions such as post-left anarchy or Situationism (e.g. Raoul Vaneigem). Egoism has also been referenced by anarcho-capitalists, such as Murray Rothbard.

Philosopher Max Stirner, in his book The Ego and Its Own, was the first philosopher to call himself an egoist, though his writing makes clear that he desired not a new idea of morality (ethical egoism), but rather a rejection of morality (amoralism), as a nonexistent and limiting spook; for this, Stirner has been described as the first individualist anarchist. Other philosophers, such as Thomas Hobbes and David Gauthier, have argued that the conflicts which arise when people each pursue their own ends can be resolved for the best of each individual only if they all voluntarily forgo some of their aims that is, one’s self-interest is often best pursued by allowing others to pursue their self-interest as well so that liberty is equal among individuals. Sacrificing one’s short-term self-interest to maximize one’s long-term self-interest is one form of “rational self-interest” which is the idea behind most philosophers’ advocacy of ethical egoism. Egoists have also argued that one’s actual interests are not immediately obvious, and that the pursuit of self-interest involves more than merely the acquisition of some good, but the maximizing of one’s chances of survival and/or happiness.

Philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche suggested that egoistic or “life-affirming” behavior stimulates jealousy or “ressentiment” in others, and that this is the psychological motive for the altruism in Christianity. Sociologist Helmut Schoeck similarly considered envy the motive of collective efforts by society to reduce the disproportionate gains of successful individuals through moral or legal constraints, with altruism being primary among these.[16] In addition, Nietzsche (in Beyond Good and Evil) and Alasdair MacIntyre (in After Virtue) have pointed out that the ancient Greeks did not associate morality with altruism in the way that post-Christian Western civilization has done. Aristotle’s view is that we have duties to ourselves as well as to other people (e.g. friends) and to the polis as a whole. The same is true for Thomas Aquinas, Christian Wolff and Immanuel Kant, who claim that there are duties to ourselves as Aristotle did, although it has been argued that, for Aristotle, the duty to one’s self is primary.[17]

Ayn Rand argued that there is a positive harmony of interests among free, rational humans, such that no moral agent can rationally coerce another person consistently with his own long-term self-interest. Rand argued that other people are an enormous value to an individual’s well-being (through education, trade and affection), but also that this value could be fully realized only under conditions of political and economic freedom. According to Rand, voluntary trade alone can assure that human interaction is mutually beneficial.[18] Rand’s student, Leonard Peikoff has argued that the identification of one’s interests itself is impossible absent the use of principles, and that self-interest cannot be consistently pursued absent a consistent adherence to certain ethical principles.[19] Recently, Rand’s position has also been defended by such writers as Tara Smith, Tibor Machan, Allan Gotthelf, David Kelley, Douglas Rasmussen, Nathaniel Branden, Harry Binswanger, Andrew Bernstein, and Craig Biddle.

Philosopher David L. Norton identified himself an “ethical individualist,” and, like Rand, saw a harmony between an individual’s fidelity to his own self-actualization, or “personal destiny,” and the achievement of society’s well being.[20]

According to amoralism, there is nothing wrong with egoism, but there is also nothing ethical about it; one can adopt rational egoism and drop morality as a superfluous attribute of the egoism.

Ethical egoism has been alleged as the basis for immorality. Egoism has also been alleged as being outside the scope of moral philosophy. Thomas Jefferson writes in an 1814 letter to Thomas Law:

Self-interest, or rather self-love, or egoism, has been more plausibly substituted as the basis of morality. But I consider our relations with others as constituting the boundaries of morality. With ourselves, we stand on the ground of identity, not of relation, which last, requiring two subjects, excludes self-love confined to a single one. To ourselves, in strict language, we can owe no duties, obligation requiring also two parties. Self-love, therefore, is no part of morality. Indeed, it is exactly its counterpart.[21]

In contrast, Rand saw ethics as a necessity for human survival and well-being, and argued that the “social” implications of morality, including natural rights, were simply a subset of the wider field of ethics. Thus, for Rand, “virtue” included productiveness, honesty with oneself, and scrupulousness of thought. Although she greatly admired Jefferson, she also wrote:

[To those who say] that morality is social and that man would need no morality on a desert islandit is on a desert island that he would need it most. Let him try to claim, when there are no victims to pay for it, that a rock is a house, that sand is clothing, that food will drop into his mouth without cause or effort, that he will collect a harvest tomorrow by devouring his stock seed todayand reality will wipe him out, as he deserves; reality will show him that life is a value to be bought and that thinking is the only coin noble enough to buy it.[22]

In The Moral Point of View, Kurt Baier objects that ethical egoism provides no moral basis for the resolution of conflicts of interest, which, in his opinion, form the only vindication for a moral code. Were this an ideal world, one in which interests and purposes never jarred, its inhabitants would have no need of a specified set of ethics, according to Baier. This, however, is not an “ideal world.” Baier believes that ethical egoism fails to provide the moral guidance and arbitration that it necessitates. Far from resolving conflicts of interest, claimed Baier, ethical egoism all too often spawns them. To this, as Rachels has shown, the ethical egoist may object that he cannot admit a construct of morality whose aim is merely to forestall conflicts of interest. “On his view,” he writes, “the moralist is not like a courtroom judge, who resolves disputes. Instead, he is like the Commissioner of Boxing, who urges each fighter to do his best.”[23]

Baiers is also part of a team of philosophers who hold that ethical egoism is paradoxical, implying that to do what is in one’s best interests can be both wrong and right in ethical terms. Although a successful pursuit of self-interest may be viewed as a moral victory, it could also be dubbed immoral if it prevents another person from executing what is in his best interests. Again, however, the ethical egoists have responded by assuming the guise of the Commissioner of Boxing. His philosophy precludes empathy for the interests of others, so forestalling them is perfectly acceptable. “Regardless of whether we think this is a correct view,” adds Rachels, “it is, at the very least, a consistent view, and so this attempt to convict the egoist of self-contradiction fails.”[24]

Finally, it has been averred that ethical egoism is no better than bigotry in that, like racism, it divides people into two types themselves and others and discriminates against one type on the basis of some arbitrary disparity. This, to Rachels’s mind, is probably the best objection to ethical egoism, for it provides the soundest reason why the interests of others ought to concern the interests of the self. “What,” he asks, “is the difference between myself and others that justifies placing myself in this special category? Am I more intelligent? Do I enjoy my life more? Are my accomplishments greater? Do I have needs or abilities that are so different from the needs and abilities of others? What is it that makes me so special? Failing an answer, it turns out that Ethical Egoism is an arbitrary doctrine, in the same way that racism is arbitrary. […] We should care about the interests of other people for the very same reason we care about our own interests; for their needs and desires are comparable to our own.”[25]

Florida Islands – List of Islands in Florida

 Islands  Comments Off on Florida Islands – List of Islands in Florida
Jan 062016

Florida islands may not be the states biggest tourist draw, as when many people think of the Sunshine State, they often think of Orlando and Miami. However, beyond these popular destinations, there are also Florida Islands that are worth a visit, particularly if you want to see some of the states best beaches. From the serene Florida Keys to islands on the Gulf Coast like Sanibel Island or Marco Island, there are many ways to enjoy the island life without the hassle of flying to the Caribbean. There is no passport or line at immigration to enjoy these islands, and they deliver every ounce of sun, sand, and surf that you will be looking for in island vacation spots.

A list of islands in Florida is lengthier than some people may think. The Florida Keys alone take up a significant portion of this list, as there are many small islands beyond the well-known Key West, Key Largo, and Islamorada. To explore these Florida Islands many travelers start out in Miami. The drive from Miami to the end of the Florida Keys, in Key West, takes just over three hours and is filled with spectacular views. If youre interested in boating, fishing, and a relaxed atmosphere, the Keys will be perfect for you. On the other hand, the best Florida Island beach isnt located in the Keys. Many of the beaches are small and rocky, and this section of Florida lacks the wide, sandy beaches that many travelers crave.

Beyond the Florida Keys, a list of islands in Florida also includes options along the Gulf Coast. These destinations are popular for their convenience, the availability of affordable flights, all inclusive packages, and even vacation rentals. From Sanibel Island to Marco Island, islands along the Gulf Coast provide a sunny escape from a cold northern winter without having to travel too far. There is a range of accommodation to choose from on these islands. Whether you are looking for a big resort with every imaginable amenity or a small vacation rental on a quiet beach, youll find it along the Gulf Coast.

Some travelers will be surprised to learn that the best Florida Island beach is located near Miami, which sometimes has more a reputation for its parties and great restaurants. While the Florida Keys are mostly rocky, Key Biscayne and Miami Beach both offer wide, sandy beaches. Many visitors to Florida have never heard of Key Biscayne, and this beach has remained largely a local secret. You will need a rental car to reach Key Biscayne, although there are also island hotels and resorts that are beautiful and worth a stay. While Miami Beach offers a wide, crowded stretch of beach with no cover from the sun, Key Biscayne is dotted with palm trees where you can spend a lazy afternoon reading a novel or having a family picnic.

Other popular Florida Islands include Captiva Island, Hutchinson Island, and Santa Rosa Island. The best Florida island beach might just be the one where you encounter the best deal. Throughout the winter and beyond, resorts in Florida offer last minute deals, all inclusive packages, and more to entice people to the sunshine state. The value might be so fantastic that you find yourself throwing away your list of islands in Florida and following the best deal. This will also help you to discover new places in Florida that you may wind up visiting year after year!

Tropical Islands – Best Tropical Islands – List of …

 Islands  Comments Off on Tropical Islands – Best Tropical Islands – List of …
Oct 182015

Tropical islands are a dream among travelers every winter, as fires are lit and the snow falls. A getaway to the beach has long been a survival tactic for those who endure long winters. The best tropical islands offer not only an escape from the cold, but also great value. Whether you decide to lounge on the beach in the Caribbean, take advantage of an all inclusive package in Hawaii, or splurge on a trip to the South Pacific, spending time on the beach will leave you rejuvenated to face the winter again. The first place to begin your research is with a list of tropical islands.

Tropical islands are known for their sugary white beaches, warm surf, and relaxed atmosphere. These islands extend from the Caribbean to the Atlantic to the Pacific and Indian Oceans. Some travelers dont expect a list of tropical islands to be lengthy, but in reality, you will have a great variety to choose from. You will find turquoise waters from the islands of Hawaii to Seychelles in the Indian Ocean to Fiji in the South Pacific. Other factors can help you narrow down your choices to find the best tropical islands for your desires.

In the Caribbean, some of the most popular tropical islands among vacationers are the Bahamas and Jamaica. These classic vacation destinations are known for their great beaches and resorts, as well as the abundance of all inclusive vacation packages that can be tailored to fit luxury vacations and budget travel, depending on where you choose to stay. Paradise Island and Harbour Island, both in the Bahamas, are known for their high-quality beaches and hotels, while Montego Bay, Ocho Rios, and Negril Jamaica have been consistently popular for the same reasons. Whether youre planning a honeymoon, a family adventure, or are trying to stick to a budget, all inclusive packages could help your tropical dream come true.

Hawaii is another classic island destination. The islands have been drawing thousands of visitors annually, whether they come to hike in Hawaii Volcanoes National Park on the Big Island or appreciate the romantic atmosphere and scenery on the island of Maui. Like many island destinations, Hawaii has accommodations options for an array of budgets, and for both families and couples, so its worth doing your research to find out what might be the perfect fit for you.

Some travelers think that the best tropical islands are the farthest away. If youre planning the exotic trip of a lifetime, extend your search beyond the Caribbean. The South Pacific is home to Fiji, Tahiti, Samoa, and more islands that deliver on culture, cuisine, and a serene environment. In Tahiti, for instance, one of the most popular ways to relax on a trip to Bora Bora or Moorea is to stay in one of the overwater bungalows that some resorts offer for rent. These are an amazing option if you want to have a truly unforgettable trip.

To take the path less traveled, look into the resorts on Seychelles in the Indian Ocean. The utter seclusion of beaches such as Anse Lazio and Beau Vallon is what keeps travelers coming back year after year, if luxury travel is in the budget. The villas and resorts here are second to none, so if you can spare the cash for a 5,000-square-foot villa, a trip to Seychelles might be perfect for you.

A list of tropical islands is a good place to start, but savvy travelers know that flexibility is key. Whether you are planning a trip far in advance or are looking for a last minute deal, sometimes price is the best way to determine where youre traveling to. People who follow great deals often discover new locations, resorts, and activities that they wouldnt have considered otherwise. Another great way to experience tropical islands is with a cruise. By choosing a cruise you will have the opportunity to see many tropical islands all during one trip. No matter what your budget is, there is a way to be lounging on a tropical beach this winter.

SEO is an investment. You invest dollars into it, and if you do it correctly you get an extremely high ROI (return on investment). Of course, the size of your investment is crucial. If you spend too much, then your risk is much higher. Our SEO plans are extremely affordable and our expert, professional SEO services will bring you results that meet or exceed your expectations.

Looking for the best SEO agency for your business? Then look no further. Our experts have spent hours researching the best agencies by client satisfaction, rankings, and the overall results. Our SEO professionals compile our lists based on proven results for organic placement for their clients.

Finding the right SEO agency can be a difficult and lengthy task. Not every business can benefit from every company. At SEO Agency Ratings, we are a group of SEO industry veterans that will take into account exactly what type of business you have and what results that you will need. We know that many people need help sailing the murky waters of SEO. There are many organizations and companies that do not stand by what they claim to guarantee. Its easy for people to be taken advantage of when they do not have an advocate looking out for what is best for them.

Businesses of all sizes can have problems finding the best SEO firm to help them in their rankings. Although there are a lot of consulting agencies out there that can help, many of them do not consider the client longevity of the SEO agency and the methods that they use to rank. While every business likes to see a big jump up in the rankings, it wont mean much if you fall from the first to the fourth page because the SEO Agency you hired used unethical methods. You have to find an SEO company that has a slow steady climb that will help you maintain your status and keep your website out in front of your customers.

We know that SEO is not your primary focus in your business and it shouldnt have to be. Your time is better spent working on improving your business and providing support for your customers. You shouldnt have to spend hours and days trying to find the best internet marketing agency for you. Our team is comprised of industry experts that have worked for decades in the SEO industry. We want the visitors to this site to recognize that SEO is not a one size fits all standard but that you can find the right company at the best price to work towards the goals that you have in mind for your website.

“Awesome” doesn’t begin to describe this. Its an uplifting and mind-expanding experience to have a glimpse of how the playground of the physical world extends outward farther than one had ever imagined. We pointed the most powerful telescope ever built by human beings at absolutely nothing, just because we were curious, and discovered that we occupy a very tiny place in the heavens, the narrator says. When the Hubble Telescope is pointed at an empty area of the sky, the images of over 10,000 galaxies appear in the telescopes long-range view: Photons of these galaxies have traveled for 13 billion years to record their images for us to see.

You Ought to Have a Look is a feature from the Center for the Study of Science posted by Patrick J. Michaels and Paul C. (Chip) Knappenberger. While this section will feature all of the areas of interest that we are emphasizing, the prominence of the climate issue is driving a tremendous amount of web traffic. Here we post a few of the best in recent days, along with our color commentary.

In case you missed it the House Natural Resources Committee, this week, held a hearing examining the Administrations determination of the social cost of carbonthat is, how much future damage (out to the year 2300) the Administration deems is caused by the climate change that results from each emitted (metric) ton of carbon dioxide.

As you may imagine from this description, determining a value of the social cost of carbon is an extremely contentious issue, made more so by the fact that the Obama Administration requires that the social cost of carbon, or SCC, be included in the cost/benefit analysis of all federal actions (under National environmental Protection Act, NEPA) and proposed regulations.

Years ago, we warned about how powerful a tool the SCC was in the Administrations hands and have worked to raise the level of public awareness. To summarize our concerns:

The administrations SCC is a devious tool designed to justify more and more expensive rules and regulations impacting virtually every aspects of our lives, and it is developed by violating federal guidelines and ignoring the best science.

The more people know about this the better.

Our participation in the Natural Resources Committee hearing helped further our goal.

That the hearing was informative, contentious, and well-attended by both the committee members and the general public is a testament to the fact that we have been at least partly successful elevating the SCC from an esoteric wonky subject to one that is, thankfully, starting getting the attention it deserves.

In this edition of You Ought to Have a Look, we highlight excerpts from the hearing witnesses, which along with our Dr. Patrick Michaels, included Dr. Kevin Dayaratna (from The Heritage Foundation), Scott Segal (from the Policy Resolution Group) and Dr. Michael Dorsey (from US Climate Plan). The full written submissions by the witness are available here.

Cosmic Heaven u0026 Marcprest – Love Will Find A Way …

 Cosmic  Comments Off on Cosmic Heaven u0026 Marcprest – Love Will Find A Way …

You need to enable JavaScript to use SoundCloud

TFB Records proudly presents its 122nd release, a track by Cosmic Heaven & Marcprest called Love will find a way; including original mix and three huge remixes by the same Marcprest, Zahir and State Of Sunrise pres. Syntouch.

The original mix is the kind of track you expect to listen when looking for high quality uplifting music. It releases a huge amount of energy since the very beginning and merges the soft progression of the melody with the powerful baseline on the intro. This amazing progression will lead us into the breakdown, where a vaporous atmosphere embraces the magical sounds of the melody in such a subtle way. These two producers surprise us with a piano based melody which conveys an incredible beauty through its notes. The uplift appears suddenly and, before we can breathe some air after the impressive melody, the explosion of sound will be launched directly through our ears with this special emotional taste of uplifting music. Master piece achieved by these two great producers, congratulations to them.

The own remix brought by Marcprest is focused, as its name says, on the purest emotional soul of the song. The melody is the true main character of the track, being present since the first beats and enhancing a lot the intro. But of course it is on the breakdown where the emotions will rush through our heart and where an impossibly magical melody will freeze time in order to make us reach the skies. The amount of feelings and emotions we could feel during this break is so high that it is just impossible to describe. This is indeed one of the best emotional songs we have listened recently. Moreover, the last part of the song will again show how deeply the melody and the baseline are linked and the true level of production this remix has. Purest emotional uplifting music from Marcprest, congratulations.

Second remix is signed by State Of Sunrise pres. Syntouch, a remix which has also bet for the emotional sounds, putting the melody in the front to be the leader of the whole song; making extremely cute changes and keeping all the intensity. An awesome piano will have the honour of playing the melody on the breakdown, where, mixed with a soft classical atmosphere, it would release a master piece. The uplift that follows is as epic as the melody, gathering step by step the power of the different sounds of the baseline to end up with the astonishing mix between this baseline, the melody and the atmosphere. There is no other way to describe this remix that as a pure uplifting song, with all its ingredients and all this special essence that sorrounds this kind of mystic tracks. Marvelous work by State Of Sunrise pres Syntouch.

Finally we will find the remix by Zahir, in which a darker part of the original’s soul is displayed. With a much powerful baseline, this is the remix which presents more energy and gives to the baseline a higher presence. The way the intro is presented is very special, keeping the short winks of the melody on the back, being part of the entire progression but letting the baseline to be the main leader. What an incredible surprise we will receive as soon as the breakdown comes and we can notice again how special this remix is, and how deeply prepared it has been. Despite being more focused on the energy, the breakdown appears almost as downtempo music, delighting us with such an amazing sounds and a heavenly atmosphere. The uplift of this remix is probably the best of the whole release, making the perfect progression from the clouds to the stunning energy. Again we feel there are few adjectives which can describe such an awesome song, so please, go and listen carefully to it. Simply a jewel of production by Zahir, congratulations!

SEO Agencies, In-House Link Team, or Link Company – Which Is Best for You?

 SEO  Comments Off on SEO Agencies, In-House Link Team, or Link Company – Which Is Best for You?
Apr 082015

I want to start by saying that as the owner of a link-building company, naturally youre going to think that my obvious bias is toward hiring an outside link firm for link development. However, I started out as head of an agency SEO team, then moved on to working in-house, so Ive seen the benefits and downsides of all of it. Im not here to sell you on doing anything other than what works best for you, so hear me out.

When I say “agency” I mean an SEO company that doesnt specialize in link-building. When I worked for an agency years and years ago, I was just getting my feet wet in the industry so I learned to do everything from code to on-site and off-site SEO and PPC. It was one of those glorious eras where you could easily be a generalist and not fall far behind. While I liked having a variety of clients to work with, I didnt really enjoy having my focus spread out so widely as it was tough to try and manage large-scale PPC accounts, optimize hundreds of pages on an e-commerce site, check rankings in various engines every day, look at traffic, and still have time left over to brainstorm new ideas about what would make the site perform better online.

Image source.

1. There were other people on the team. That was the awesome part, having someone else to brainstorm problems and ideas with, to see what I couldnt see when Id go blind over some tiny thing. I was the team lead so I had to know everything, within reason, as I had to lead others, but I loved being on the spot and being responsible. Id have also loved having someone else in charge so I could ask questions, but being forced to be “the one” was the best thing that could have ever happened in my career as I am incredibly stubborn and dont like to let anyone down.

Image source.

2. I could usually apply what Id learned with one client to the others. If something in particular was spectacularly successful with one, it was easy enough to translate it into something spectacularly successful for the others. If something failed big time, then Id save time by not trying it out on 10 other clients. Testing new tactics was incredibly fun.

3. Working with a variety of clients in various industries gave me a great appreciation and knowledge of clients in niches that Id never have known about otherwise. Ive always thought that the best link builders and content creators are people who never stop thinking and learning.

4. The simple act of learning how to successfully build links easily translates from one client to the next so its theoretically just as easy to do it for one client as another. Sure, youll use different approaches and methods with different clients but for the most part, submitting to directories or emailing to ask for a link is pretty similar no matter who the client is.
