Alan Weiss’s Monday Morning Memo® – 05/23/11
May 23, 2011—Issue #88
This week’s focus point: Lady Gaga is one of the smartest marketers I’ve yet seen. She brands herself as a “show without an intermission”! The arbitrary compartmentalization of our lives drains us of energy and prevents synergy. I know people who won’t answer email while on vacation or take time out to play with the kids or dogs during the “work day.” We have a single life. Our house has different rooms, but our lives should simply have one “great room.” A little discipline and a lot of judgment will optimize your time, which is not a resource but actually a set of priorities. Real wealth isn’t about “to do” lists, or “bucket lists,” or even money. It’s about providing yourself with discretionary time to attend to the real priorities in your life. “Intermission” is when you sleep.
Monday Morning Perspective: We tend to use arguments like a sledgehammer with which we deal blow upon blow upon the head of the unfortunate victim of our apostolic zeal, as if we could stun him into belief and convert by concussion. — Caryll Houselander, English mystic
