(The Philippine Star) - June 5, 2019 - 12:00am He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies because of his Spirit who lives in you. — Romans 8:11 “I went from the horse-and-buggy to a man walking on the moon,” said the elderly man to his granddaughter, who shared this story with me recently. But then he mused, “I never thought it would be so short.” Life is short, and many of us turn to Jesus because we want to live forever. That’s not bad, but we don’t comprehend what eternal life really is. We tend to crave the wrong things. We long for something better, and we think it’s just ahead. If only I were out of school. If only I had that job. If only I were married. If only I could retire. If only . . . And then one day we catch an echo of our grandfather’s voice as we wonder where the time has flown. The truth is, we possess eternal … [Read more...] about What do we want?

British tech giant Dyson reveals its new slate of products for the modern home dweller. Being invited to a Dyson technology launch feels like a close approximation of what a real-world Stark Industries press conference would be like. Picture this: you enter a pitch-dark room, ambiently lit with eight-foot wall-to-wall LCD screens — surrounded by media and tech fan boys and girls from all over ASEAN, the mood is sheer awe and excited anticipation. On stage, there are soon-to-be-unveiled products underneath cloth-covered plinths, with dapper science-bros in the wings ready for the revealing (read: Dyson heads of engineering, no less). Eventually, you’re led into an all-access mini museum filled with sexy product displays and future-proofed machine mockups.

I was not an easy client to advertising agencies because I insisted that the agency should understand my business and must figure out the way I think. I was decisive and I get frustrated when the agency does not know what I want. Other cases are different, and most advertising people know this. They complain that clients want attention-grabbing innovative ideas that nobody has ever thought of. So the creative people dream up a lot of ambitious stuff and present these creative, big, and bold designs only to have clients shake their heads and wince. They claim that the studies are not what they are looking for and then direct the agency towards a campaign that is safe, timid and boring. The fact is, many clients do not know what they want. Honestly, I was the opposite type. I wanted advertisements to be: “In your face,” edgy and bordering on the ridiculous because the fashion industry caters to the young, and the young demands a lot of excitement and creativity. I knew what I … [Read more...] about What do clients want?
