    A number of great take-aways in this video, Joe and Dean! Thanks for making them available to marketing lovers. My 2012 calendar is my prime focus this month and I appreciate the chance to pick up some experience-tested ideas to implement right now while I’m on-task.

    Dean, thanks for pointing out your “50 Minute Focus Finder” video. I was very happy to learn those very powerful and actionable ideas you presented. I’ve adopted them as part of my shift from a multi-tasking-reactive orientation to a focused-proactive-action orientation right from the start in 2012. Lots of time left in December to work on my “focus muscles” with your 50-20-50 to put me in great shape for a powerful year!

    (As an added bonus, while working my way back through past posts to find your video, I ran across a whole bunch of ILoveMarketing episodes I need to work into my schedule!)

    Thanks again, Joe and Dean!


  • Since I’m moving into a new office in Toronto tomorrow and re-evaluating my marketing initiatives for the next several months to a year this episode was very helpful!

    I liked Joe’s idea of getting his calendar up and on the wall. I am going to buy a white board for my office wall and I think I will buy a laminated calendar (or three) as well to go with it.

    I read the 37signals book re-work and agree that they are an awesome company. I really liked Deans explanation of Base Camp, it sounds like a great tool to use once my team grows to a few more members. I remember hearing Pete Cashmore say in a video that he uses Basecamp to manage tasks for Mashable.

    Keep up the great stuff guys! I Love Marketing is officially my favorite podcast. 🙂

    Have been playing catch-up for months with your podcast. I usually ignore the recent ones but this one was just too timely. I immediatley downloaded it so I could listen to it in the car — it was GREAT! I started my own Evil Scheme Hatcherty and started in on the recomended 4 50 minute focus finders. Here’s my video on what I’m getting out of I Love Marketing and a view of the starting board for my “After Unit” focus session — http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6T1VWUH-xA0
