I’m slaving away on the trailer getting it ready for the trip, except when I get distracted, which only happens every fifteen seconds or so. For a guy with a four month trip that starting in about a week and a half, I seem to be wandering a bit.
The week started out with a board meeting for my company–Babcock & Jenkins. Several of our management team people presented, including two of our most creative wizards. They showed off a new technology and marketing approaches (called Social Cultivation) that we revealed at a major tradeshow for our industry (direct and interactive marketing). They got me all fired up. It’s brilliant, and a real breakthrough. I can’t stop thinking about it.
I also spent some time working with the Indian software development company we chose for a web-based business I’ve started with a friend. They put together a pretty good reiteration of our specification documents. I think this is going to work out well. Can’t stop thinking about that.
Then I began work on a new website for stand up paddle surfing. Another small venture. We’re going to build some prototype boards, and if things work out, perhaps do some production and build a very focused lifestyle company around the idea of geezers (anyone over 35) getting back into challenging sports. I can’t stop thinking about that.
There’s no food in the house, Diane and I have been too busy to shop, but apparently not too busy to go to lunch together at lots of great little Portland bistros. What a great foodie town this is. I can’t stop thinking about lunch.
Other than that I have crystal clear focus.
What the heck was I going to do today?
