For a couple of days I am haunted by the realization that nothing I have been doing since the year started has any substance. I have virtually no time to stop and think,to rethink even less and to understand almost at all. This means several things: I write meaningless posts, badly researched, badly argumented and poorly worded (of course the latter I do a lot); I rely on first ideas for briefs, I take no time to do briefings properly and I simply rush through explanations. I spend a lot of time writing down things I have to do, I don't even try to prioritize anymore and I don't sleep at night because I go past my usual bedtime writing e-mails and forcing some extra pages in. I rush through feeds and whine on my blog. I force myself to plan stuff for my personal life and rush decisions because I know it is now or never because of all the above. I twitt (which I despise) because I fool myself this keeps me in the game.
But right now I have no solution.
LATER EDIT: another symptom, you try to maximize time by doing two things at once, bathing and watching the latest conference videos :-) I wonder if the Mac is waterproof
communication is essential to business making and it involves more than the ability to name your product, write a tag line or a press release. It's an intricate, rational and scalable effort and, let's face it, not anyone can do it.
