Message in a Bottleneck: How to Reach Your Fragmented Audience

What was the most-watched TV show in 1998? What about 2008? And 2018? No soup for you if you didn’t get “Seinfeld,” “American Idol” and “The Big Bang Theory,” respectively. That was just for fun. Here’s what’s important about this exercise: The average number of viewers for those shows was 38 million in 1998, 27.8 million in 2008 and 18.6 million in 2018.

Overcoming Past Failures to Succeed Today

What’s your biggest failure? That’s become kind of a trendy question to ask yourself. TED Talks espousing the merits of failure have gone viral. “Fail faster” has become the battle cry of Silicon Valley. But I’ve never liked failing. It doesn’t taste good. So I’ve been pondering this question. Thinking back to that first speech I gave to PR pros on boosting media pitching is crazy, because at the time I had no idea what a fork in the road that would be. If that day finished out the way it starte...

NCAA hoops final slumps on CBS

Fewer than 20 million viewers tune in for UVA-Texas Tech thriller Despite the dire predictions put forward by some of nation’s best-compensated sports pundits and serial bloviators, Monday night’s NCAA hoops final between Virginia and Texas Tech turned out to be an absolute gem of a game.

The Value of Focusing on Big-Picture Decisions

The decisions you make in your job are more valuable than the work you do. That’s the truth, even though your current work environment may not reflect it.

One of his team members had just delivered a project that was “good but not great.” My client expressed second thoughts about choosing not to redo it. But he also labeled the particular project as “not very important.” Know...
