What are your energizers?

I spent my morning working on a script for a marketing video, early afternoon in a Strategic Planning meeting and the late afternoon working out financial data issues. Needless to say, I was exhausted on the drive home.

For me, Numbers are not an energizers - they are energy suckers. Days that I am able to do creative things at the end of the day - leaving me bouncing and my brain firing on all cylinders.

If you have a choice in your schedule - I highly recommend doing your energizing task at the end of the day.

I have always had a hard time working after lunch on Fridays - now with the onset of Social Media Marketing - I have found my clouds parting, chorus of angels singing task dropped in my lap. Website posting, blogging, networking...perfect - Thank you Gods of Marketing!

No, Really...

Yes, I do own a tiara. No, I did not win it in a pageant. I just believe that sometimes we need to see ourselves as special.

I am not the only one at work with a tiara - There is one other woman there with one..but she is not as bold with it...though we do occasionally, when things are crazy, declare a Tiara Tuesday. Tomorrow is not such a day.

Ocasionally I will be asked why I don't have it on. My usual response is "I don't need it today".
Most days I do not, but it sits on my credenza in case of an emergency that chocolate cannot handle.

Don't write me off as some silly administrative clerk. I am not...I am well respected in my position.

Which brings me to the point of this blog...to be successful, you must live outside the box.
