Travelling light.

Playa El Toro, Panama
I am writing this post after waking up to the sounds of birds, and starting my first day here with some coffee, papaya, huevos revueltos, and a walk on the beach. My work and inspiration space for the coming month will be a simple but beautiful and airy room, with views of the ocean by day and an incredible sky full of bright stars by night. Everything I brought with me fits onto two shelves and two coat hangers.

I am pretty excited by that forecaset – because of the escape from the cold and wet Portland winter, obviously, but also because of the simplicity of the whole endeavor.

So that’s the theme I am going to suggest for the first draft of your marketing plan for 2013: What would you carry over into the New Year if you had to make do with only a fraction of the brain space, budget, and time you have available now?

Here is what’s on my packing list so far:
– Meet new people, online and off.
– Tend to my website.
– Care for my relationships with allies.
– Listen.
– Acknowledge the support I receive from my community.

If you’d like some feedback on yours, feel free to send me a note – deities of the internet permitting, you’ll hear back from me within a day.
