Well, You Know What I Always Say About Myself

 

I need a personal slogan. I think it could really take me places. You know, something to put in big letters at the top of my resume. "Once shot a man just for snoring too loud." Something to really grab people's attention - make them sit up and take notice. "Proud to be an American, proud to be driving an automobile." You see what I'm saying? It could make me a new man.

Just about every company has a slogan. It helps them stand out from the rest of the pack. It sticks in your brain and leaves a lasting impression. That's what I want to do, too. "He takes a licking, and then he goes home." What a conversation piece it would be if I only had a personal slogan.

But how do you go about picking your personal slogan? How can you tell which one is just right for you? I mean, nice and short is cool, because it leaves no room for confusion. "Meatloaf? I'll take it!" But if you think about it, a long slogan has its advantages too. What could be nicer than a slogan filled with irony, cynicism, foreshadowing, and single entendre? "It's a shame there aren't more people in the world who smell as good as he does." That's great on so many levels.

The one thing that I know for sure is that when trying to decide on your personal slogan you really ought not rush it. Would you feel comfortable only spending a day or two working on the slogan that will be at the center of all your business cards for the rest of your life? The wrong slogan could be a death knell. "Looking for love in 31 places." The right slogan might not come to you immediately. Be patient - be willing to wait as long as it takes to find the right one. "If he were any cleaner, he'd be invisible." I guarantee it'll be worth it.
