Not working is usually something that causes stress.
Sometimes people talk about gaining perspective from the space afforded by not working.
Personally, I prefer to focus on learning and perhaps more importantly understanding.
I've been spending a lot of time at this task - and it's turning out to be quite valuable to say the least.
Now... that being said, I've not exactly been pursuing the life of a hermit. I've been working on one exceptionally interesting consulting engagement ("what does the next great interactive design firm look like") and helping out with a couple old Pop Art accounts. And, as one might expect in these crazy times, I've been listening to a lot of folks who think I can help their agencies and/or companies get better.
To sum up this rambling post... consider it an explanation for the lack of frequency of late and a promise that there will be more thoughtful posts coming. Tweet
