Weekly Resolution 1/4/10

When I was heading up Saatchi & Saatchi Wellness, I started writing weekly resolutions. Some fun, some about marketing, some more serious. People told me that they liked them and looked forward to reading them. So I kept writing them!

Since I'm not really into New Year's resolutions, I thought I would at least continue my own tradition of weekly thoughts/resolutions into 2010 as well. Just something to think about each week as we go about our lives.

This week ...


With all the time off during the holiday season, I got the chance to watch a lot of movies. New movies, old movies, comedies, dramas, the whole gamut. Escapism at its best. I realized that I should really watch movies more often. Not just to escape, but also to learn.

Learn about:
- a piece of history that I didn't know much about --- "The Young Victoria"
- the background of a famous person --- "Gods and Monsters"
- pop culture --- "Julie & Julia"
- new production techniques --- "Night at the Museum 2"
- what it's like to be in the younger generations today --- "500 Days of Summer"

I saw over a dozen movies this past week and a half. I probably won't be able to quite keep up that pace, but I will make a more conscious effort to engage in them more often. Particularly as the Oscar season comes up. Movies are a great chance to escape and learn and stay connected with pop culture.

What's your experience? Jim.
