Before we plunge headlong into The Moten Group blog, I thought you might like to know how it has come to be. I can really get on my husband’s nerves. Now that I have your attention, I’ll tell you why. I’ve turned into quite a morning person. Usually I wake up in the morning with a song playing in my head…even though there’s no radio on. Sometimes it’s a particular phrase, television show, or even an odd word drumming in my ears. (Never mind the fact that I dream vivid dreams every night in Technicolor®)! So, after nearly 40 years of striving to be normal (whatever that is) I finally decided to “just go with it” and see where these bursts of creativity could take me. Of course, everybody knows that a good thing is always worth sharing…and so…Morning Musings. Ta-dah!
Back to why I can be so nerve-wracking for my honey. The morning song in my head means half-singing from my lips at the crack of dawn. And with half-singing on my lips there are brief punctuations of silence where I wonder why in the world this song is stuck in my head and whatever could it mean?!? And with the song, the singing and the silence comes my frenetic scribbling to capture the meaning and figure out the reason the idea bombarded me in the first place. And…all this philosophical rationalization must happen before the sun’s full light comes through the window, the spell is broken and the magic has disappeared like morning dew. (I’m surprised honey hasn’t moved me into the Guest Bedroom or the Garage)!
Sometimes the reasons are personal, sometimes spiritual and sometimes I can relate those ideas to a business project I’m working. And when I see a clear connection to things marketing and/or management I will relay them here on my business website. Through the weeks and months, I hope you continue to visit this site and get comfortable with these Morning Musings. Above all, I sincerely hope you get something from them that helps you think big thoughts, think more creatively and be willing to drop the jargon and just do what makes sense. Most of the time the right answer just feels right. Perhaps you’ll ponder these musings the next morning and make your own magic dust for yourself or a client. So press ahead, embrace “not normal” and get different.
