Change.

If you search for images under the word "change" you get everything from Obama, to pocket change, to weird graphs, to Beck, to .... but what does change mean to me? Change isn't a bad thing, it's just different. It means that it's time to think about something different, with a different way of looking at it. Change means progress in whatever is happening. Does progress necessarily mean good? Nah, but it means it's progressing and we learn from progress.


Here's to all the changes quickly approaching.

Connected.


Here I am - connected more than ever to everyone. Whether it be through Social Networks, my (crack)berries (yes, I have 2), Blackberry messenger, Other messenger tools, email accounts (I have 4), or ___ (fill in the blank) - I'm more connected than I've ever been to the people I care for, the people I work with, the people I've met once-twice-three times?, people I've never met F2F, or ____ (fill in the blank), and I'm still missing birthdays, emails, you name it. I'm still forgetting to do certain things on my mental, digital, hard copy to do list. There are all these "tools" to make my life easier, but honestly, I'm starting to crave my old daily planner and a nice, new pen in a quiet cafe - wondering if anyone left me a message on my home answering machine and wondering if I should even care.

Rethinking the process.


It's time for me and my marketing career to rethink my approach. I'm definitely thinking differently in the solutions behind the strategic thinking for my clients, but I feel it's also time for me to approach my professionalism a bit like Mr. Donald Draper does - with a sense of ease and understanding of the value of what I bring to the table for my clients and the respect the craft of marketing deserves.


Now if only I could have a cocktail at lunch and not get loopy during a pitch while dressed to the nine without a hair out of place... Ahh, the 50s.

all about the packaging.

I love packaging. I love when I go into a store and the boutique wraps something, no matter how big or small - perfectly. I love when I get a gift that is wrapped in a new way. I love ribbons. I love boxes. I love paper. I love boxes. Okay, sometimes I love packaging more than I love the gift inside. I love when the packaging is tied to the item inside...

yes, for me, it's all about the packaging.

Thanks Essenza in Fremont for reminding me of this and my man for bringing me something home from this boutique - perfectly packaged.

laziness caused by convenience.

I no longer know what time a show is on tv, what day the show is on, or what's on. Seriously. I just see a show (or know I show) I like and program my DVR to record it. Now don't get me wrong, if the DVR doesn't record it, I become upset - but normally, I'm pretty content with my library of recorded shows....

I'm officially no longer aware of tv programming. I wonder, does that make me lazy?
