I Hate Advertising
We hear this all the time. People wondering why their peers or leaders 'don't get it'. They'll go through their week feeling depressed and wondering if they really even 'get it' themselves.
You probably DO still get it, but perhaps your head is a little twisted the wrong way. It happens. Reset your thinking and set yourself straight again by reading a book from someone you find inspiring in the business.
On these negative types of days, I sometimes get asked for advice. When I do, I usually pass along one of Paul Arden's books: It's Not How Good You Are, Its How Good You Want to Be and Whatever You Think, Think the Opposite. I've also been a fan of Godin's Small is the New Big.
These books are very small, and can be picked up at anytime to restart yours beliefs and help you quickly get back on track to staying sane and optimistic. Reboot your optimism today.
