I’ve been reading this book called “Deep Work” (see pic below) during the last few days and it has resonated so hard with my current state of work. Professionally and my private occupation. Everything feels very shallow at the moment.
I tend to focus as much on Data, Analytics and Visualization as I can, as I feel this is my path to take. I like it. It’s fun. It’s strategic, in a way. It’s a part of the truth of the story you want/need to tell. It’s challenging (!) and for now… it’s an enormous playground which I can explore and probably won’t get bored so easily. I tend to get bored rapidly as I tend to learn at a high pace.
The plan was to do (more) analytical stuff by day and be creative with data-related items at night. In between, time for friends, sports and travel. Some of that happened (1
) (visited NY & Stockholm). Most of the time, it didn’t: being the most senior marketer isn’t always a good thing.
Even this newsletter turned into sharing my view on specific topics, in order to show and prove my strategical insight. Guess what. I shouldn’t.
Yet, the urge is there to find satisfaction and do deep work, which seems really hard to find as every day seems so shallow at this moment.
