The other night, on a whim, I watched Cosmos on Netflix. I remember watching it as a kid, on my parents’ Sony Trinitron, back in 1980. But all these special effects and scientific breakthroughs later, I figured it would be hokey, dated and laughable. I was wrong. Everyone on the planet ought to give it a try.
I am a Mets fanatic. It’s ridiculous, so why does a horrible ending to a Mets season cut me off at the emotional knees? Because I’m a fanatic, that’s why.
The truth is we’ve been a Tea Party country for thirty years. What was Reaganomics, trickle down theory, the Contract with America? When you want to cancel the income tax, end social security, cut government regulations, kill the EPA, end work-place rules, close the borders – that’s not progress, that’s the 1890s.
I recently got a resume from a college grad, and like so many others today, he was having a hard time getting callbacks on his resume. It got me thinking about what I’d be doing if I were starting out looking for a marketing job today – tailor my pitch and resume to the ways I in which marketing builds value. This is something no one ever explained to me and I wish they had, and it’s the only thing that matters. It may seem obvious for the big picture it’s easily forgotten in the day-to-day.
