An empty department and bored out of my skull...

My boss is in Puerto Rico, our graphic designer is celebrating her birthday, and our Sr. Writer/Marketing Director is out...is it just me and our Executive Vice President in the department today.

What a better day to get things done!

As long as we are on the subject of getting things done, lets give it up for Episode #7 that has just broken my standing record for 30 unique listeners. Here are some other fun facts about the 20SMF and how its doing...

- Episode #7 has broken through 30 listeners
- Unique Blog Visits are Up to 100+/week
- Readers include folks in DC, California, 10 Other States, Canada, Italy, Poland & Belgium

As I mentioned in Ep #7, Hubris leads ultimately to your downfall. I am excited though that so many people find what I have to say and present on the 20SMF useful.

Thanks to the people who read this blog and listen to the podcast. All I can say is keep reading, keep listening, and next week you'll see that I have such a big announcement about the 20SMF.

The Blogger's 2 Cents....A Challenge

Hey Folks...

Lately on my podcast, I have mentioned giving to the red cross to benefit hurricane victims. Its important to note that helping and giving is a lifetime commitment - not just for extreme emergencies.

Therefore a'la David Zinger and his 2 Cent Challenge - since we know that talk is cheap but blogging is even cheaper - for the rest of the year I will donate 2 Cents to charity for every word blogged.

If you blog, I challenge you to do the same!

This of course comes not by way of me but of Ethan at The Vision Thing proving once again - this blog needs to seriously contemplate original ideas at some point ;).

PS - this entry just garnered $2.40 for charity

Performance as Your Trump Card

David Ignatius makes a great point about performance vs. Rhetoric in his op-ed column from the Washington Post today.

"The new politics isn't about values; it isn't about settling scores. It's about performance. It's about putting a wounded, shaken country back on its feet, much as Franklin Delano Roosevelt did in his famous First Hundred Days," writes Ignatius.

That puts into words something I have been feeling about how 20-Something's can play their trump card - performance. When the rubber meets the road - where are you?

In the next week, I will try to distill this into one show that will highlight the ability of 20-Somethings to GET THINGS DONE.

Don't ever think success, political or otherwise, is made out of anything but your ability to perform. Beyond the rhetoric, beyond the hype - its going to be if you can get it done that's going to keep you 'in-style' at work and as a rising 20-something star.
