Marketing Stealth Bombs

When it surprises and delights fans. That’s a good thing. When it surprises and delights even the creator. That’s a wonderful thing! 

Drake did it with the release of his album, Scorpion, unannounced. Pop up shops, art galleries and pop up concerts are now all the rage.  

In a world full of announcements, promotions and gimmicks. Isn’t it a refreshing change to just see a creative person say; “Hey, I made this. I put a lot of work into it and I hope you will like it. If not, then maybe you would like something else I am working on”

Then get busy creating the next thing. 

Oh, and this morning I woke up as a regular guy and tonight I go to sleep as a Published Author. Currently you can check out my latest book project, click here. Now available on Amazon Kindle.

It doesn't really have to be fancy in order for you to get the job done.  

"If you want to be a writer and you don't know how or when; Find a quiet tree and use a humble pen" - Paul Simon

Or in our case... A highly connected, fully charged, picture taking, Super Computer that can fit into your pocket.  

Times may change, Technology may change, But the key principles of discipline, consistency and focus are fundamental laws that are timeless.  

Use what you have. Don’t always think you need more, because generations before you have achieved a lot more with a lot less so we have little excuse. 

Operate using the Bare Maximum.

One Hit Wonder

It is easier to consume than it is to create. It is easy to say that that show is terrible, or that song just isn’t good enough. That that coach needs to be fired or that player should be substituted.

Easy, from this side of the fence.

But when you are the player, the coach, the producer, the singer, the artist. The creator. Your job is to create. You’re not looking to be a shooting star a passing fad or a one hit wonder.

You create. You do it again and again and again. Not for them, not for you, but because it’s what you were created to do.
