December 26th I passed a Valentine display at Wal-Mart. It gave me a frustrated pause. We live in this world of being never satisfied, wanting instant gratification, and rushing to the next thing. Any chance those in retail encourage and promote this mindset? There are entire Seasonal sections of big box stores. These sections are the gateway to the buyer not being happy in the moment. What’s coming up next?
It is our responsibility to control how much we let outside forces like advertising, email and other social media control our time. Don’t get me wrong, I’m all about planning when it’s pertinent to my priorities and not because Hallmark thinks I need to purchase cards and candy six weeks early. What do you do to not let these outside messages take over your time and day-planner?
All the best,
