Brevity is King.

I am guilty as charged of writing a 1,000 word post and not really getting to the point.  I am ashamed because I live in a world where I am proud of my ability to communicate in a 140 characters or less. 

Brevity is king.

So I vow to you (and me) to write concise and to the point blog posts going forward.

In the words of Sweet Brown, “ain’t nobody got time for that.”

Beating the Monday Blues

Monday Blues are a weekly occurrence.  The weekend is over and you are faced with five challenging days head.  The first half of the day is spent catching up on weekend e-mails and finishing projects from the prior week and the second half continues at the same manic pace of the morning and you wish it was Tuesday already. So much for a fresh start!!

While waiting for yet another pot of coffee to finish brewing, I wondered, is it all a state of mind?  Do we do this to ourselves?  The answer is yes.  But how does one break the cycle?

Luckily, I stumbled across Inc's article on how to have a fabulous day.  It most definitely applies to Monday and the rest of the week.

So here they are, in a friendly Pinable format:

How do you beat the Monday Blues?

If not now, when?!

I’ve been in the process of starting my “professional blog” for what seems like years.  But life can be funny sometimes and throw curve balls when you least expect them.  These curve balls can be good or bad...  But those curve balls are excuses.  And if not now, when?  To quote TOMS founder, Blake Mycoskie, “’Someday’ is a disease” so I’m curing this disease with TODAY!

 I welcome you to my blog and the future site of everything that’s bubbling up inside my head.  Well, maybe not everything… 

 Currently, I am the student of social media, specifically B2B in the medical device arena. 

 The company that I work for has pushed me to grow in ways I never imagined and look forward to continuing my career there.  It has also been there for in the form of a sample closet for the dozens of times I’ve hurt myself.  Like when I pushed myself too hard at the gym.  Or wanted to make a fashion statement.  But more on that later.

 And now the disclaimer: all opinions are my own and not of my employer.

 Thanks for stopping by, I look forward to many discussions with you!
