Are you an adopter or an adapter?

Seth Godin:

An early adopter seeks out new ideas and makes them work.

An adapter, on the other hand, puts up with what he has to, begrudgingly.

One is offense, the other is defense. One requires the spark of curiousity, the other is associated with fear, or at least hassle.

I know a lot of adapters!

This is definitely something to keep in mine when planning the adoption strategy for your social collaboration projects…
