Sweet Surrender

Last week, my wonderful friend, Petra Kersten Lober, published this poem on LinkedIn. The entire poem is beautiful. But this line, in particular, blew me away: “In the morning, the past disappears.”

It touched me so that it inspired this video:

‘Nuff said.

I’m a business owner. My company — O’Brien Communications Group (OCG) — is a B2B brand-management and marketing-communication firm that helps companies position their brands effectively and persuasively in industries as diverse as: Insurance, Financial Services, Senior Living, Manufacturing, Construction, and Nonprofit. We do our work so well that seven of the companies (brands) we’ve represented have been acquired by other companies. OCG is different because our business model is different. We don’t bill by the hour or the project. We don’t bill by time or materials. We don’t mark anything up. We don’t take media commissions. We pass through every expense incurred on behalf of our clients at net. We scope the work, price the work, put beginning and end dates on our engagements, and charge flat, consistent fees every month for the terms of the engagements. I’m also a writer by calling and an Irish storyteller by nature. In addition to writing posts for my company’s blog, I’m a frequent publisher on LinkedIn and Medium. And I’ve published three books for children, numerous short stories, and other works, all of which are available on Amazon under my full name, Mark Nelson O’Brien.

    • Thank you, Frank. I appreciate your taking the time to watch and comment. I think often of the lyrics from the Don Henley song, “The Heart of the Matter”:

      The more I know, the less I understand
      All the things I thought I’d figured out
      I have to learn again.

      At least in my experience, the one reliable safeguard against the illusions (delusions?) of control and certainty is constant learning. If I’m not learning and creating — the two are very much related for me — I’m uneasy. I’d rather not be. 😉
