A Tribe Called Watermelon

Standard

Sometimes I wonder why Marketing is my career purpose. I do love the work, but I can’t deny that my desire for perfection often gets in the way of what’s practical. There lies the rub! Over the past few days I partnered with other marketing professionals from around the country to learn, grow and share best practices. The experiences changed us all.

In our quest to be better at our work, I believe we became better people. This doesn’t always happen, but lightening did strike and an amazing bond was formed. A tribe we dubbed “Watermelon” was born from an idea that when we need each other, we’d use the code word: “Watermelon”. And whether we work together for weeks or years, it’s great to remember that work is just a catalyst to life. Here’s to my newest #friendsofTenaciousM!!

Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta 2016

Standard

This weekend I gladly worked the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta. The down side was waking up at 3:00 AM to get in line to park our car and be ready to enter the fair grounds by 6:30 AM. On the plus side, my company was one of the sponsors this year, giving me an opportunity to ride in a hot air balloon. The pictures say it all.

Some Days Are Just Special

Standard

Even for myself, a woman whose half full glass manages to somehow overflow, even by those standards, this was a great week. Thursday, May 28th was amazing for a couple of reasons: 1) My work to provide better access to quality health care for some people considered part of this country’s underserved populations was realized. 2) The quest to bring more value-adds in health care services for our New Mexico market/plan was a slam dunk!!

On Exploring Creativity

Standard

Great read to start my week!!

A Frank Angle

Creativity is just connecting things. When you ask creative people how they did something, they feel a little guilty because they didn’t really do it, they just saw something. It seemed obvious to them after a while. That’s because they were able to connect experiences they’ve had and synthesize new things. (Steve Jobs, Founder: Apple Computers)

Passion is one great force that unleashes creativity, because if you’re passionate about something, then you’re more willing to take risks. (Yo-Yo Ma, cellist)

The secret to creativity is knowing how to hide your sources. (Albert Einstein,scientist)

Creativity is not just for artists. It’s for business people looking for a new way to close a sale; it’s for engineers trying to solve a problem; it’s for parents who want their children to see the world in more than one way. (Twyla Tharp, dancer/choreographer)

Anxiety is the handmaiden of creativity. (T. S. Eliot, playwright)
