BLOG – GIFT DAY 322 a month of inspiration :: words to live by and cute puppies

18 Nov

Today, in my month-long nod to inspiration, I share a little email and some bonus cute puppy oohs and aahs. 

But first…
My life revolves around email. It’s hard for my days not to be tied to email since it’s everywhere, right? Phone, iPad, computer.

So I find this post from Brain Pickings inspiring. David Ogilvy’s rules for writing memos back in the day. I think it can almost be applied to email.

For instance:

“If you want ACTION, don’t write. Go and tell the guy what you want.”

And:

“Never send a letter or a memo on the day you write it. Read it aloud the next morning — and then edit it.”

I am probably guilty of breaking both the above examples.  Nonetheless, they are words to live by, even electronic ones.

And finally, a little inspiration to wooo your heart.  
If you like babies and puppies and need an “ah, cute!” moment definitely check this out.  It’s full of inspiration! 

More tomorrow.
Lovemore {fearless!}
Jamie

{what makes you ooh and aah?}

    I’m mostly using e-mail because I find the land line goes like this: It rings, I run. Tripping over the laundry on the floor, the baby drowns in the bathtub, I can’t find the pencil and pad/paper by the phone, and when I answer it’s a robocall.
    E-mail is great – Keep the phone in your pocket turned off, you get a little beep and there’s the note with the update…when you are ready. I think it’s more polite and respectful

    Lovemore
