When I was working on my MBA, in marketing I would hear of these marketing agencies with bicycles, air soft guns, meditation rooms, walls made completely of sticky notes where the atmosphere was constant party and adults were expected to play. My work environment is a little different. The television is on with some day time rubbish about some desperate female trying to find the baby daddy. The dogs battle with the laptop for lap space. Instead of a sticky notes I have a pretty scary stack of old mail that beckons me to go through and file or toss. If I need a moment of meditation I do dishes...not quiet the same.
I decided I would not go into marketing I chose this. I keep telling myself that in hopes that it makes it easier. With this as my chosen life path I have to find ways to motivate and ignite creativity for myself. In this constant search I have turned up a few jewels.
