The Marketing Diva takes a break...

The world of my day job moves pretty fast.

PR, web design, planning for trade shows, writing proposals, decisions that need to be made--and everything comes to a screeching halt when a client calls so I can give that person my full attention.

The fight is that when things are moving fast, it is easy to move from acting to reacting.

Sometimes I have to take time to create some breathing space. Frequently I'll tell Nancy and Erin that I'm headed to the "big blue office"...my euphemism for taking some time outside.

It isn't beautiful. Gray brick. Gray door. No landscaping. But there is sunlight, fresh air, and the occasional caterpillar, which apparently are the magic ingredients neccessary for sanity in the workplace.

When i read this, all i could see was a picture of a person with a brown outfit standing by a brick wall and over the face was a magazine centerfold of a lovely California vinyard! (evidently I'm still stuck on the image in yesterday's post)

Nonetheless...glad you have the big blue office...it is spa-like (if not vineyard-like)!

I didn't get to my "Big Blue Office" all week and it got to be about 60 degrees.
