I have a doctor friend who decided, several years ago, to start taking her own advice: Eat better, exercise more, drink water, and get some sleep. She'd been preaching this simple self-care, wellness mantra to her patients for as long as she could remember. One day, dissatisfied with her own health and wellbeing, she decided … Continue reading Creative Collaboration.
By "Thursday," what I meant was Saturday. We'll start on Saturday, which is today. And to get us started I'll repeat: what I believe is happening is that we're all short-circuiting. "On Friday night in Louisiana, a seven-month-old baby was shot in the head, caught in the crossfire during a drive-by shooting.

Bonus for today's post? Recipe links at the … Continue reading Here’s the deal.
If you're new here, welcome. If you're here after being away for a while, and you're wondering what's on the slate today, then I'll give a quick intro. A few days ago I offered a short introduction to the creative brief, one of my favorite, time-tested tools that I’ve adapted to use in many different … Continue reading There must be someone who will buy.
Let's start with a light chuckle, at my expense. On Thursday, March 17 (which will remain the official post date for this post), I had a full day, starting with an early meeting in my office.
