One of those days that I like. That starts a bit rough for whatever reason then evens, rights itself, or I right IT. With intense work and focus, containment and creativity. Visited an Architecture firm today with one of the Sales Engineers, the one devoted to me I’m just reluctant to call him MY SE. Anyway, the office was on the backside of a building, and up a small flight. Building used to be resi’, the Engineer thought. While up there and looking around, the arrangement and décor of the office was all creative, all visually intoned and inclined, inspired and intentioned. We met in an equally-sightly conference room off to the side where the owner and his IT or tech guy said they were interested in Sonic’s services. Couldn’t wait to get back to the office to work up proposal and send, but I had a lunch I had to get to, with an IT consultant.
Again, go-go-GO today. This is what will get me the office, the travel… everything. Paid off credit card earlier, and now with quite the thing budget. Not that thin, just mindful of where pennies and all go. When do I fit in a run? Could go now, as lunch has settled. Don’t want to break this momentum, though. Go tonight, I tell myself. When everything is quiet. If I don’t go tomorrow morning, then I’d have to go in afternoon, after speakers meeting. Maybe that makes more sense. I’ll figure it out.
Back at desk, writing emails…. Looking for more businesses around the area I today hit. Have my geographies fixed, which helps. Simplicity is radiant, both conceptually and with visible possibility, seeing that if I get out there and TRAVEL LIGHT, just say hi, not give any amount of fucks, the office will arrive.
Want a bubbly water. Thirsty. More than likely from all the coffee I’ve had, which isn’t a dastardly amount but apparently enough to dry-mouth the mouth. Different narrative, dodge approaches and words obvious… surprise prospects, and yourself, and the story itself. So much the day today to me saying, even with how some want their pessimism and low measure of everything around them and in their story to tilt and tarnish my forward. Not today, not ever.
Business, in business, for business… monitor disposition, not just mood and mode, but the ME that’s seen. When in the Architecture office this morning, the rooms were shoving me toward them, toward such-rooms and walls of my own. That I’m on the Road I need be, finally.
Closer to day’s close and I don’t want to leave. I have my routine, I’m hungry, I want more conversations. Tomorrow will be on phone more. Didn’t do much calling, today. Other than the one visit after the Arch’ office. Just keep talking, keep putting out story, not just content for the sake of content.
Glass of wine, somewhere… where. Wherever there could be leads. Starks? That happy hour they do? Parking’s always an issue. Don’t care. I’ll give stop by, see what occurs. The AE in me will NOT turn off. Going to stop by to see if I can connect with whatever, or not even to connect but contribute to visibility. This week is about just that.. marketing self and concurrently telling and re-telling MY story. Get out of this office, every chance I get. Literally just walking around has value. IS the loudest of embodiments of visibility.
