I don't have a present daddy and it sucked balls. But some mothers are no saints either. Absentee parenting is a shame. A damn shame. Regardless of the gender of the offender.

So many people spend their entire life trying to APPEAR happy instead of actually spending time trying to be happy. This is sound advice. Happy, fulfilled, IMPRESSED WITH THEMSELVES people are great employees. And it's totally different that, as you mentioned, ego. Ego is a completely different ball game.

The thing I look at is, at the end of the day... Am I going to bed as the person I want to be? Am I representing myself in the way I want to be remembered?

the answer is totally within my control to change. That's a good feeling.

I read a whole article a couple of weeks ago about how there is this eye glasses company who actually goes out of their way to generate bad press, because google doesn't yet discriminate what kinds of things are being said in the incoming links, only the rank of the pages who link to you and yours.
In this way, technically, there is indeed no bad press, and in fact... Like you predicted someone would say... It's a brilliant ploy to get people yakking.
I never ever thought about Kenneth Cole until I saw a couple things about this in passing, so if his intention was brand awareness? He's succeeded.
If it was inspiring people to purchase his brand? He probably failed.
Thoughtful post.

I really appreciate hashtags and everything that they do... But it's basically an honour system of people using them properly. I've noticed that hashtags get less popular as the spammers catch on to them, and it seems like they rarely recover after that.
Good post. :)
