It’s not easy to impress me.
OK, that’s not true. I am not that hard to impress; so let me rephrase that.
It’s not easy to impress me a lot in a short time.
But that’s what happened today – I did not wake up on a Sunday morning looking to get impressed by the writings of a boomer professor in New York.
First, I watched a clip from Friday’s Bill Maher show (big fan) – one guy that spoke was very animated, and very impressive.
So I looked him up. Turns out he’s a NYU Stern professor, has written a few books, and has a blog.
I went to the blog, and started reading – and did not stop for a long time.
The guy’s name is Prof. Scott Galloway, professor of Marketing at NYU Stern.
- He speaks well
- He writes fabulously
- He thinks broadly, and where appropriate, deeply
- His ideas resonate (with me), and
- He’s funny
I recommend you watch, read, and follow him as you find time.
The Youtube clip I saw today: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0H8AshEYrKw (Scott’s the guy who speaks con furioso)
