7-Second Thoughts September 21, 2023

Don’t sit on the couch

Waiting for your phone to ring

If you do find yourself on the couch

Taking a nice little break

Leave your phone on your desk

Or anywhere else but on your person

And grab a notebook instead

Any scrap of paper will do

And just hold it.

At some point

Ideas will spring to mind

That might offer value to your clients

Or future employers 

That you can send them.

This is how to get work

It’s called

Time Away From Your Phone 

And it is one way

To get your phone

To ring*

I’m here,


*or ping 🙂
