Information is great, but you can have too much information. You know, like the friends that want to tell you everything from bowel habits to what their boyfriend said five seconds ago, and ten seconds ago,etc...
In health care you want all the relevant information to make a sound clinical judgement. But, too much can be harmful. For example, over-exposure to radiation can cause changes in the body's cells leading to various illnesses.
Sometimes in life not sharing information can be more beneficial than just putting it all out there, especially in the workplace. Not every co-worker needs--or wants--to know every detail of your life. Think before you expose, especially at work. Once it's out there, you can't take it back.
Xerox is a company that also has made life easier. We can copy on a machine in seconds with just a touch of a button.
Technology has made it so that you don't have to copy everything. This saves wasted space, trees, time, resources. Copy only things that are important and you need to keep.
You know were this is going, right? In your job and in your life you're going to see many ways of doing things. Be discerning. Copy only those that are productive. Or better yet, strive to be someone to be copied. Create your own ideas. Think of how you would like it done and do it. Be a communicator. Be kind and considerate.
X-Rays and Xerox: see through and copy everything. But before you do, ask yourself: Should I?
Don't over-expose yourself.
Be an original, not a Xerox copy.
