We were having a startup-style week with my team at work which involved using Pinterest to promote our brand (dream, not real life). Pinterest has become incredibly popular very fast and we needed to hop on the bandwagon to catch up with everyone else. Much like a startup we decided that we had to put our heads down for four days and crank it out, creating a marketing/branding strategy for our company using Pinterest while consuming nothing but pizza and Redbull. In this particular scenario it ended up being pulled pork sandwiches and coffee instead of pizza and Redbull as has been common on many teams I’ve worked with before my current job.. This is definitely not a typical scenario for the company I work at, we’re not terribly social media savvy and we certainly don’t run on pizza and caffeine. I’ve worked on teams in graduate school and with founders of startups where we did this constantly and we accomplished a lot because of the drive and motivation to meat a deadline. I’ve been told before that I seem to work better as if there’s a gun to my head (read: quickly approaching deadline, or imminent hanging around the corner), maybe there’s some truth to that.
