If you’re familiar with Pinterest, whether you know it or not, you’re an addict. Pinterest is a thief of your time and a proponent of procrastination….AND I KNOW IT! However, if you’re not familiar with Pinterest, take heed and run, run as far as you can. Dramatic, of course. Since you’re still reading that means you’re an addict like me so I might as well share with you some of my favorite pins.
When’s the last time you received an advertisement in the mail that had an extra special personal touch? Better yet, when’s the last time you added a special touch? Chances are it’s been a while. But I bet there’s an even greater chance that you would have added a personal touch “if only you had more time in the day”.
I’ve realized that the personal touch you put on something can earn you a huge return but unfortunately our natural tendency to add a personal touch is very low on the priority list if on it at all. Here’s the thing, we all know that a personal touch takes time and energy and that’s exactly why they mean so much, because they take time and energy.
So you say, how can I add a personal touch to my daily? Think of it as branding your work. If you’re funny, add a little humor into it. If you’re an artist, decorate it with illustrations. Whatever you do, customize it with a little personal touch of ‘you.’ You’ll be glad you did and the recipient will too.
What’s the last thing you gave or received that had a personal touch?
p.s. I DIYed my “dress”. It’s actually two identical tops. One is worn as normal and the other is pulled down around my hips and the long sleeves are tied together in front.
