This is a big step into the unknown for me. For months I have been prevaricating over setting up a blog until it was properly planned and thought through as to format and content.
You see, as you come to learn about me, I like things to be organised and structured, my desk and office, clutter free, I only have one icon on my screen and as for my data structure….well…lets just say that Glen Close has nothing on me!
So to launch a blog site that is very much embryonic and certainly not yet to the presented standard that I would want – shall we say I’m not exactly in my comfort zone? – So why do it?
It’s because I’m interested to see if within this frentic, data overloaded and pressured commercial environment there is actually time to stop and think things through and to try things that are away from our norm. One Director I work with drives me demented because it’s impossible to hold a conversation of any meaningful length without his Blackberry buzzing, the door opening and the e-mails beeping. I find it hard to get the message across “take a breath!” I am slowly getting through to him – bless him, he’s a lovely guy to work with but very much of the mentality that “if I’m not doing something, I’m not working -right?” – no actually you’re wrong- you’re thinking…….
I guess it’s the same in our business strategy, if we plan everything before committing, perhaps the opportunity will be gone, if we go at it like the proverbial bull in a china shop how much effort will we consume; there has to be a balance of course.
So I’ve embarked on this path; I thought I’d try it “his way” and I’m interested to see how we progress.
I welcome you to travel with me and to share, critique and contribute.
I look forward to hearing from you.
