More and more companies have been using “big data” to gain further insights into their marketing activities. As Graham Stewart puts it: “Successful marketers have figured out how to use data to squeeze billions more from marketing and help their companies grow.”

At this time of the year, many people feel stressed about holiday shopping, end-of-year “must do” activities, work responsibilities, final exams and term papers, and other factors.
So, what can we do to reduce our stress levels?
According to Bite Size Wellness:
“Sights: Being a visual person, visual-based activities tend to be soothing and uplifting as they bring my mind to another place. Close your eyes and breath! Sounds: Are you an auditory person? Do you love music? If so, experiment with sounds to reduce stress and exercise your acoustic muscles. Smells: There is something about a burning lavender candle that instantly puts me in the calm zone. Surround yourself with energizing and soothing scents to comfort you when you are frazzled. Touch: If you are a hugger you know how beneficial the power of touch is. Experiment with tangible sensation and focus on those that relax and renew. Taste: Mindfully indulge your sense of taste. Slowly savoring a favorite treat can help focus your stress elsewhere. Just remember the key is to pamper your tongue in moderation so that your stress doesn’t impact your waistline.”

While we plan out our careers, we certainly need to determine what activities interest us (as part of our self-assessment).
As Matt Wesson observes for Pardot (B2B marketing automation provider and a part of salesforce.com):
“Technology has given marketers the ability to track, quantify, and optimize marketing processes at a level that was unheard of only a year ago. The marketing scientist has come to dominate this new arena of objective measurement and data-driven thinking, while the marketing artist continues to thrive on creative ideas and a more abstract way of thinking. But while these two differently-minded marketers may sometimes disagree over where the focus should lie, the marketing departments that will truly excel in this new age of marketing are those that recognize the value in both approaches.”
