Advertising // Rambling

Back cover of Bill Hick’s ‘Love All the People’

Here’s a random lump of words on my thoughts about advertising.

  1. PPTs are easy, brainwork is tough
  2. Advertising ‘blinkers’ blind us to the world
  3. Words and pictures are the simplest stimuli
  4. Silence in briefings = thoughts brewing
  5. Random talk can be is productive
  6. You can hypothesize when you can’t strategize
  7. Hunches drag us to better places  
  8. Hyped is not equal to right
  9. Let customers decide whether it matters
  10. Whatever we consume becomes our fuel
  11. Titles don’t define who can do what
  12. Examples convince the toughest skeptics
  13. Making anything lengthier doesn’t make it important
  14. Ridiculous ideas paired with a ‘how’ stand a chance
  15. First we do it, then we learn it
  16. The FOMO is usually not worth it
  17. We never feel adequate as we’re always ‘getting there’
  18. Webinar lessons…evaporate fast
  19. Timesheets are for losers
  20. Some use work as a distraction from life

Finally, the world certainly doesn’t revolve around us. But it helps to be hungry and add our little contribution to the world…while finding some joy in it.
