The girl loves rice. She really, really does. She even wears it. And she’s promoting it with her face.
I wonder if we ever really realize how large a part we play in corporate and enterprise marketing for companies. Sure, that shirt “defines” us but we’re also a living and breathing advertisement for the company itself – and we paid them so that we could market it!
Seems a bit unfair if you ask me.
Currently, as I sit here, I am tangibly representing 5 or 6 brands:
I spent the entire morning updating my About Page, significantly.
I haven’t updated that page in months – in fact, the last time I touched it significantly was in January (although I edited something small in April). I need to take a bit of my own medicine as I have told many people that editing and curating your About Page is something that needs to be done constantly!
So here is your kind reminder to go to your About page and update some of the (very) outdated information as well as add a few things that have happened since you last touched it. Don’t just say “John, that’s a fantabulous idea!” and then never get around to it – do it by the end of the week, put it on the calendar, and then comment below with a link to your About page!
I’m pretty sure that pumpkin carving was designed to test the patience of all adults, especially male.
Or maybe that’s just me – maybe I’m the only one that spends 2 hours trying to print out the right sized template, cleaning, cutting, poking, and breaking small child-sized equipment that’s supposed to be used by full-sized adults.
Only to come away with something that somewhat resembles the original design and for your 6-year old daughter to take 100% of the credit when you did nearly 100% of the work.
Gmail Meter is pretty slick as it has provided me a perspective of what my life looks like in a way I never have been able to really calculate.
What Gmail Meter does is simply show you the statistics around your emailing activity – anything from volume to response time to categorization and even email length in terms of responses.
Wow! It was incredibly insightful. Here’s what September looked like for me (only one email account) in a snapshot – although it’s worth noting that I manage 4 very active email accounts and so this is just about 25% of what really comes in – I’m doing some reporting on the other email accounts as well to get a full view of what’s really happening, but I imagine that I get 3 to 4 times what this report says here.
I mentioned this the other day on Twitter and I’ve had this challenge for a long time – I think it’s time that I actually do something about it!
There are tons of WordPress professionals, small creative design/dev businesses that focus on WordPress and I need to compile a list or create some system where I can send people to who request some of their needs for WordPress, web strategy, consulting, SEO, etc.
The reason I need to do this is because I want to serve my community here and also because I simply do not have the time to entertain much of the work that crosses my desk – this is a great problem to have!
But I hate leaving people hanging and spending the time trying to connect parties can be very time consuming.
I’ve been back and forth for a while with a standing desk and a typical sitting one and I’ll tell you that I still haven’t firmly landed anywhere – in fact, I’m still very comfortable with just experimenting with other options until I find that right fit.
Have you ever thought about the system that you use to make decisions, especially the ones that matter? I’ve recently reviewed it and I uncovered some fascinating insights about how I’ve made decisions historically (especially the bigger ones) and how I’ve been actively changing that system for the better.
So how have you been historically with the big decisions? Have you ever thought about taking a different approach or reviewing your thought-process and/or system?
