Desiderata

Go placidly amid the noise and the haste,
and remember what peace there may be in silence.

As far as possible, without surrender,
be on good terms with all persons.
Speak your truth quietly and clearly;
and listen to others,
even to the dull and the ignorant;
they too have their story.
Avoid loud and aggressive persons;
they are vexatious to the spirit.

If you compare yourself with others,
you may become vain or bitter,
for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself.
Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans.
Keep interested in your own career, however humble;
it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.

Exercise caution in your business affairs,
for the world is full of trickery.
But let this not blind you to what virtue there is;
many persons strive for high ideals,
and everywhere life is full of heroism.
Be yourself. Especially do not feign affection.
Neither be cynical about love,
for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment,
it is as perennial as the grass.

Take kindly the counsel of the years,
gracefully surrendering the things of youth.
Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune.
But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings.
Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness.

Beyond a wholesome discipline,
be gentle with yourself.
You are a child of the universe
no less than the trees and the stars;
you have a right to be here.
And whether or not it is clear to you,
no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.

Therefore be at peace with God,
whatever you conceive Him to be.
And whatever your labors and aspirations,
in the noisy confusion of life,
keep peace in your soul.

With all its sham, drudgery, and broken dreams,
it is still a beautiful world.
Be cheerful. Strive to be happy.

Happy Birthday Mum

Chulita, el que siga muy lejos de ti no significa que te haya dejado de querer  o amar. Sigifica que continuo buscando mi propia felicidad, aún asi no dejo de pensar en ti o preguntarme que estaras haciendo en estos momentos.

He aprendido que ha habido y abra momentos en que no este a tu lado. Pero aún así continuas en mis pesamientos a diario. Te doy las gracias por haberme hecho el hombre que soy y enseñarme a creer, valorarme y amarme a mi mismo.

Gracias por todo el AMOR y PACIENCIA que me tuviste porque para ser honesto sé que “era” un niño latoso y bueno francamente te admiro.

Te deseo lo mejor en tu cumpleaños. Que nunca se te olvide que te AMÓ y te AMARÉ con todo mi corazón por siempre.

Pasatela  super en tú día.

Muchos besos y abrazos Mama … )

Traditional Marketing – Business Cards

Traditional Marketing has been stamped as the old type of marketing, with the invention of the Internet; Social Media has established a new era of Marketing strategies. However I believe we should not forget that traditional marketing still can have an amazing response, especially with a simple business card.

Below you can see the power of face to face marketing but also the spontinaity and the energy of the guy in the clip below it reminds me that having a positive first contact with a customer is a key factor into reaching them and making them curious enough to visit your site.

It took me less than 5 minutes to realize the potential of this guy, because as soon as I gave him some of my businesses cards he launched himself  imidiately towards a potential custumer and I sat back and just observed him while he was doing his thing.

Billboard Painting for Short Film # 21

On July 14th 2010, graffiti artists Gabriel Edvardsson and Max Sjunnesson interpreted the project Short Film #21, by Csaba Bene Perlenberg, and created a huge billboard at the legal graffiti wall by Folkets Park/Möllevångstorget in Malmö. This is the short documentary about the event.

This film has been made by Martin Wikener, and assisted by Emelie Lindberg. This is my first marketing idea and it has truly come alive with this billboard project. Hope you enjoy it and go and visit it.

The Awakening

The Awakening
(Author unknown)

A  time comes in your life when you finally get…when, in the midst of all your fears and insanity, you stop dead in your tracks and somewhere the voice inside your head cries out…ENOUGH, Enough fighting and crying and blaming and struggling to hold on. Then, like a child quieting down after a tantrum, you blink back your tears and begin to look at the world through new eyes.

This is your awakening.

You realize it’s time to stop hoping and waiting for something to change, or for happiness, safety and security to magically appear over the next horizon.

You realize that in the real world there aren’t always fairy tale endings, and that any guarantee of “happily ever after” must begin with you…and in the process a sense of serenity is born of acceptance.

You awaken to the fact that you are not perfect and that not everyone will always love, appreciate or approve of who or what you are…and that’s OK. They are entitled to their own views and opinions.

You learn the importance of loving and championing yourself…and in the process a sense of new found confidence is born of self-approval.

Your stop complaining and blaming other people for the things they did to you – or didn’t do for you – and you learn that the only thing you can really count on is the unexpected.

You learn that people don’t always say what they mean or mean what they say and that not everyone will always be there for you and everything isn’t always about you.

So, you learn to stand on your own and to take care of yourself…and in the process a sense of safety and security is born of self-reliance.

WRITE THE FUTURE

Here’s the new global campaign for Nike,  “Write the Future“. The mood of a whole nation.

The decline of a would-be hero. Fame. Infamy.The possible futures of the world’s top footballers are played out in epic fashion. All hang in the balance. Only the moments on the pitch will decide what really happens. And the margins for error could not be more narrow. An excellent work of the agency Wieden & Kennedy. Directed by Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu (Babel, 21 Grams) and featuring the incredibly unique music of Dutch rockers, Focus, the film shows how one moment on the pitch can be the catalyst for ripple effects felt around the world.

No LOGIC

It’s been a while since I re- mix this very special style of music. One of my favorite Italian musicians; Mario Lanza, open ups the remix with a German touch straight after binging  an electronic Kalkenbrenner, et voila my latest favorite song; Alors on danse. Justice at the background completes this Master French Style!!!  And of course let´s not forget the greatest Daft Punk.

Short film#21

BoostHBG-talent Csaba Bene Perleberg, director and screenwriter,  opens up his next short film project for a phase of interactive development.

This project has the working title “Short Film # 21” (as it is Csaba 21st film) and makes use of Facebook and Scribd as the base.

Director: Csaba Bene Perleberg talks about his interactive project “Short Film # 21” and what YOU can do to participate, contribute and be part of making a movie!

The trend is that Csaba as the screenwriter made the first draft of the short film script available for download in Swedish and in English at scrib. You can comment on the script if you want, feedback is appreciated. So far there are 639 reads, Feedback on Short Film #21 by Tutti Johansson-Falk

The discussion conducted at the project site Facebook, is kept open so that everyone can see the discussions. This makes the script also available for anyone to use – Csaba has released the copyright on the script so that all the different manuscript versions, and the ideas implemented in the discussions surrounding them, are made available to whoever would like to use it for anything.

In theory, therefore it means that anyone is allowed to film Csaba’s latest script – or parts of it. The idea is also that the Facebook page will be used on the platform to mobilize the recording team and  for seeking sponsors and investors and other partners.

8 days ago I received an email via facebook from Csaba; “Antonio, I´d love it if you´d want to be Chief Marketing Strategist on my new project, “Short Film #21″. I want to get it out there as wide as possible that people should take part in the development of the project, and also, beyond.  I want to market this film as the first Facebook-developed short film! (If that´s true…) C.”

So of course one of my first strategies was to open a twitter account so we can get more exposure. The ambition is to open up the entire process and provide unique insights into the writing process, financing, rehearsals and recordings.

This is the start of a very interesting journey and experience, I am not quiet sure how it´s going to end up, but one thing I know, I will give 100% to it. This is new for me and I will appreciate any help or suggestions that anyone can have to be able to contribute and improve this project.
