I’m feeling a little existential today so here’s a stream of consiousness of what I’m asking people around the office. Feel free to chime in in the comments.
Are Take That really about to have another UK number one “hit”?
What will the Liverpool vs. Man. Utd. result be on Saturday? Should I wake up at 7:30 or stay in bed?
It’s not the despair that kills me, it’s the hope.
**UPDATE** Liverpool lost 1-0 after completely dominating the match and having enough chances to win three games. I’m angry but if it means we go through on Tuesday against Barcelona, I’ll take my medicine and shut up…
**UPDATE 2** Liverpool lost 1-0 after completely dominating the match and having enough chances to win three games. I’m over the moon as we went through against Barcelon thanks to a truly fantastic effort in the first leg (2-1 away from home) that meant even a 1-0 loss meant we went through on the “away goals count double” rule. Suddenly Saturday’s loss doesn’t seem that bad…
Is it true that for every 1% of broadband growth, newspaper circulation drops 0.2%? I read it in Popbitch so it must be true.
What’s the right way to use a note book?
I just got a new Moleskin and want to get off on the right foot. Do you take notes throughout and then transfer the actions to the back? Do you keep your action items on one page and actions you’ve delegated (up, down or sideways) on another? Or do you mix up notes, actions and doodles like some sort of pot pourri? Enquiring minds want to know.
Is the most effective thing you can do the most unexpected?
Playing football last night I saw people did better when they did the things that weren’t expected of them – defenders attacking and attackers dropping back. If you’re a defensive worker (responding to requests) should you go on a charge and start leading your team? If you’re a forged-in-the-fire type leader, why not take a step back and see what your team’s capable of. You may be surprised.
What’s the best way to use a wiki in a corporate sense?
I don’t think they’re any good for short, intense bursts of collaboration such as crisis messaging or for huge groups. Multiple people will be making simultaneous changes which can screw the document up. However, I can see wiki’s being really good for long-slow burn type of projects where everyone has ownership of a specific part – team to do lists, proposals, editorial calendars
