Yesterday I had a pretty rough day. More on that next week on my JibberJobber blog.
To end the day, though, I thought I’d carve out some time and put together a powerpoint to try slideshare.net. I’ve been wanting to do it for a while, but really wish I had a really creative person to do it for me, or at least check it out. Someone like Armano, or Geno (both of whom I’ve met in person).
It’s not that I don’t like to pretend I’m creative. But something happened two years ago that made me stop and think harder about what I was doing.
I put out a press release.
It was uber-successful.
And that success scared me.
Scared me into thinking I had to be more thoughtful, more careful, with these types of things.
And I stopped. No more press releases. Nothing that an ad agency, or a PR firm, should do.
I scared myself into non-action.
And that was dumb.
