Things seem to be back on track. Plugging out a forty+ hour week, and the enthusiasm is coming back, and momentum is picking up. I feel that things are getting busy again. The only thing thatâ€™s lagging right now is networking, which is in great part due to the summer.
Iâ€™m at that point in the branding process where I am stewing on the report. Seems to be my way with critical documentsâ€¦ It just brews in my head and then kaboom, the words start flying from my fingers. Well the storm is brewing, itâ€™s just a matter of time now. My team is waiting to edit the document as soon as I produce it.
This seems to be the most artistic, creative aspect of my work, the messaging portion of everything. Itâ€™s so critical to take it easy during this time. Usually the best ideas come to me at the gym, on my bike, at a movie instead of staring at a blank screen.
Thereâ€™s a great book called the Artistâ€™s Way, by Julia Cameron. Julia really seems to understand the creative process, and I have found her techniques to be absolutely critical in unleashing my ability to develop innovative materials. If you are inclined towards any of the arts, this is a must read.
Big new business pitch next week, and yes, the PowerPointâ€™s almost completed. How nice is that to be done now? The beauty of owning your own business is that you donâ€™t have to be subjugated to other peopleâ€™s procrastination. In my book preparation prior to a major pitch is absolutely essential.
Onward through the rest of the week. Have a good weekend.
