Madison Avenue Flashback 2007. Toe to Toe….Truth to Power!

Morning Folks!!

Truth to power. Don't be too afriad to reject Bullshit. I do it right here and this clip remains one of the best most intense moments since I have been in domaining. It crystalizes the problem in a way that uncovers how laughable the answer to my question is.

Here we have corporate America bogged down in a short term budget when there are long term decisions at play. Here is how and why they fail and continue to fail. Let's have a meeting! Let's chain ourselves with a budget. Let's ignore the big picture. DEFINED! Where is the LEADER that OVERRIDES bad decisions? See's the future? Understands the future.

The Blogs I Like and Why I Like Them.

Morning Folks!!

When I read a blog I want a few things. I want to learn something new and I want to know how it affects the writer personally. When the writer shares and reveals themselves I get much more out of it. It can be a newbie blog or one that has been around for years. Everyone has something to share. Everyone learns new things at different times. Everyone can contribute to the knowledge base.

That was what made the adult world so compelling in the mid 1990's. Those folks did that. They shared. It sometimes was rough and tumble because 'Secrets' would come out. Business Secrets. Secrets some did not want others to know and learn about. But they were forward thinkers. Mainstream has yet to learn all their lessons allthough they have come a long way in the past few years. Thanks in part to the recession.

So new knowledge is what you look for in a blog and like medicine, sometimes you need something to sweeten a boring story. I want to see passion and humor and something that relates it to something bigger.

Have a Great Day!
