Now, I’m not a runner. Feel like I should say that upfront, tho anyone here probably knows that.
It's just that I was in the park today and I passed this dad jogging really slowly because his tiny son was by his side keeping pace. I didn't hear the question, but I think we can all guess it was, "Why are we running?" But I overheard the answer. The dad said, "We Run Because We’re Runners."
How great is that? No matter what you do — especially if it is a good thing — I think that's the secret to why you do it.
This is my mantra for 2009. Have been trying it out over the last few days and it seems to be working. My resolution is: One In / One Out. Which means any new stuff I acquire must displace something else. Something worn out or that no longer fits. Personal consumer management, if you like. Mostly, I will try hard to precycle.
LOL. Wish I saw the talented Merlin Mann do this pres in person. (Mea culpa; must confess to unwilling ungiggling participation when the TL phrase is uttered at the agency...all agencies on my CV in fact looove them some thought leaders ;-)
