It’s June 25, and that means that in just a few days we’ll hit Canada Day, also the halfway point in the 2012 calendar year. Soooo, how are those New Year’s goals making out? Going strong, or long forgotten?
I’m a crazy big fan of goal setting and measurement so I always take a moment to reflect and see if I’ve accomplished new things since January 1. Do you ever look back and reflect on the goals you set?
In the meantime, here’s five things for the final week of June.
1. Humani-T Cafe is having an international film festival. And if you are in Halifax, y’all should be making plans to check it out. I was lucky to be a guest at the media screening last week, and man oh man! There are some amazing films in the mix. There are two showings; July 2, and July 3, both at the Hydrostone Location. My favourites were manbirth and The Man with the Stolen Heart.
2. Meaningless Business Jargon. Do you hate silly, overused business terms? I do. I can’t stand hearing the phrases “let’s take that offline”, “let’s blue sky this”, and “open the kimono” in a business context. Here’s Forbes list of the terms that suck the most.
4. Summer of Depp. Super excited that the Alfresco Film Festo schedule was finally announced, and it will be a Summer of (Johnny) Depp! I think I was halfway there with my guess of Summer of (Tim) Burton. Films are: Edward Scissorhands, Charlie & The Chocolate Factory, Alice in Wonderland, What’s Eating Gilbert Grape?, and Ed Woods. Starting July 27.
