I'm traveling a lot this week which has prevented me from posting, but reminded me of something I thought I'd share. Some of the best advice I took from Miami's planning conference was n+u=i. it means 'new stuff' + 'you' = inspiration. I love it. I can't remember the name of the guy who introduced this, but he was a TBWA planner in Japan (anyone know his name?)
I was reminded of this yesterday while in Austin. Though I have been there many times before, I met some new people and had a couple of new experiences, like spending time with a friend's band while they filmed a music video. Tomorrow I'm on to San Francisco then LA. So by the end of that tour I should be fully recharged and inspired. We'll see what happens.
