*** THE POWER OF 3HREE ***
As part of our forthcoming mini series for #ShoutOuttoHelpOut here is 1 of 3 unedited, recorded live, pieces of advice. It’s all about planning. Having a plan. Watch the video. Or to save you from listening to my unedited ramblings, you read this to get an idea:
Have A Plan
Plan your day, everyday. Not necessarily the same routine. Mix it up. From getting up to going out. Exercise; go to the gym, run, kayake, walk. Whatever you do, do it for 30-60mims a day.
Go outside 2-3 times. A healthy body is a healthy mind. Don’t sit at your desk for 9 hours clicking refresh on Linkedin or The Dots. Don’t apply to anything and everything. That’s counter-productive.
Plan and make a list of the top 10 people, brands, agencies, companies or people whose work you LOVE.
Once you have your list, this is your HIT LIST.
Research each one. Find out everything you can about them. Who works there. Who is the Creative Director, the ‘chiefs’ of technology, finance, marketing, brand. Who are the producers, account directors?
Find as many of them as you can. Connect with them on Linkedin. Write a note to them when adding them. Make it unique, add some personality. Reference a project or article they’ve written, or a project just launched. Spell their name correctly.
