Here at work we spend a lot of time sitting in circles with laptops. And overactive, under-stimulated brains combined with super-fast Wi-Fi can steer concepting sessions in all sorts of directions. It was Monday afternoon and instead of strategically defining the logistics of a plan to sell electronics around the holidays, we were thoughtfully discussing the finer points of our favorite childhood toys.
It was just about time to change the subject.
And then I mentioned my Lego collection. A sense of common ground and unity washed over the group. Apparently Legos had transcended my 80’s childhood and been a big hit for the Millennials as well. Various trips down memory lane followed.
I built houses!
I built space ships!
I built torture chambers for Beanie Babies!
The whole discussion left me yearning for something to do with my hands. Which ultimately led to this blog entry.
Happy Friday, friends. Hope your weekend is filled with simple pleasures and idle aspirations.
