RMD is an office full of passionate people, creative minds, and intriguing personalities. Like all of those who are truly inspired by their jobs, coming into work each day isn’t a mandate. It’s a necessity.
The word “passion” has been thrown around quite a bit. So much so, in fact, that it has begun to lose its luster. That’s why we’re re-defining it. Right here. Right now.
When we asked RMD’ers to explain why they are in advertising, we got a range of answers. Because we believe we’re all important parts of a greater whole, we make each day count. When it really boils down to it, we’re all here to contribute something that wasn’t there before. We are fueled by the thought that we could brighten one client’s day. We are inspired by the idea that the words we write could help grow a brand. We are passionate about the prospect of our packaging design influencing one consumer to pick up a new product in the grocery store.
So now we ask you. What are you passionate about? What can you contribute to the world today?
We love TedTalks … but this one is especially important. Ten minutes shows you that a healthier way to look at things, and to approach things, might not be a natural born instinct after all. And, in the agency business, where the rubber hits the road nearly every day, a healthy mindset is important.
A couple of points I felt were important that we actually do as an agency:
1. Give gratitude throughout the day – doesn’t have to be huge things, just as long as it comes from the heart.
2. End-of-day “3 good things that happened” – this gives you a positive refection of the day. Every day is a good day in some form or fashion
3. Forgive those that “kick you cat” as Zig Ziglar would say. Don’t let someone taint your day over their bad mood.
