What marketers actually sell

Not powder or chemicals or rubber or steel or silicon or talk or installations or even sugary water.
What marketers sell is hope.
The reason is simple: people need more. We run out. We need it replenished. Hope is almost always in short supply.
The magical thing about selling hope is that it makes everything else work better, every day get better, every project work better, every relationship feel better.

If you can actually deliver on the hope you sell, there will be a line out the door.
Hope cures cynicism. Hope increases productivity. Hope needs no justification.

Mind Boggling

President elect Obama is talking about a $1,000,000,000,000 debt (1 trillion).
A number we can't really grasp. Though this might help...

1 trillion seconds is 31,000 years.

New Years' Quote

I came across this quote from Francis of Assisi, which he said to the brothers at the end of his life. I thought it was a good thought to begin the New Year with.

“Let us begin again,
for as yet we have done nothing.”
