We interrupt our normal programming for this special report. Whether a baby boomer or a hyper-media savvy gen-x or gen-y, I know you hate to have your favorite program interrupted. So bear with a guest blogger filling in for Mark, and have a seat class, it’s time to begin.
Today’s topic: “How young do you feel?” Chances are your brain has a younger age, then the rest of your body. Hold on, this will make sense — soon! A recent post in Phil Cooke’s “Change Revolution” tauts the strategy of niche marketing, and correctly points out that even the most seasoned citizens want to look young, and will buy the latest I-Pod to chase the dream.
With that in mind, “How young do you feel”? As a person with a God-called creative gift are you age-neutral, eternally-young? A child excels in curiousity, always asking questions, never ashamed to ask “why?”. Keep wondering why. If you’re striving to stay young, keep looking at the ordinary, and capture the joy. When you enjoy the ordinary, you will naturally distill items to their simplest form. Now you can really communicate to the most people, with the greatest clarity — KISS. Keep it simple Simon. (Yea, I know its ends different, but I’m a guest here!)
Begin your day tomorrow thinking young, capturing the simple joys, opening the mind to the joys around us, smile at your neighbor, wave hello to a stranger, and remember your kindergarten rule: “Treat others as you want to be treated.” Have a great day, and thanks for stopping by.
