You spend a lot of time in your office. And, what do you do with it? Sure, you work like a dog, but there might be one more way you could multitask. Last week, I ordered a small set of handweights and had them shipped to my office. Now, when I’m reviewing a document or sitting on a conference call, I can get in shape at the same time. I’ve done it more than a few times now and have realized that just having the weights around makes me more inclined to use them.
It was really funny. A reporter walked into De La Concha and mentioned that he writes for Health.com. Of course, we were suspicious. But, he assured us that he was writing about stress and smoking habits following the banking collapse of a few weeks ago. So, we worked with him, and the resulting story was interesting. The store got a mention as a networking spot, and a quote from me was picked up. Also, a guy from my old gig, Deloitte, got a shout-out.
Maybe the financial crisis isn’t so bad? Nah, it is.
