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.
