I forgot to eat, so that’s cool.
I hadn’t really experienced this level of entrepreneurness until today.
After scripture study and piano practice, I had a marketing coordination meeting for CollegeCon. It went well, and I was motivated to get things done. I spend the next few hours designing some graphics for a video and was confident that the idea was going to work.
I called the video producer to make sure we were on the same page—we weren’t. What I thought was a solid idea was soon exposed to be full of holes and the conversation spiraled into a great case of “big idea man syndrome.” We created a long-term, complex, masterful plan for a campaign and were confident it would work.
Long story short, it didn’t.
However, I had a ton of fun on that call. I had the opportunity to experience what it was like to be on the ground floor of a startup and have a hard core brainstorming session. Not only that, I felt that my input was intelligent and that it mattered. Apparently I’ve learned something from three years of business classes, who knew? I got so caught up in brainstorming and troubleshooting and problem solving that I forgot that I hadn’t eaten since noon and I was ravenously hungry. Cool.
I love the musical The Secret Garden. Today, I found this clip of one of my favorite songs, “A Bit of Earth.” I hardly ever cry, but I came close with this.
