For a long time I've thought being a "Brand Manager" at a nonprofit would be a kind of dream job. I mean, look at what it could be like:
- My revision to someone's work could be It needs to be less ... "ugh" -- and they'd have to take me seriously, and make a good-faith attempt to revise with that as their sole direction.
- The numbers I'd be accountable for would be so vague (like "raising awareness") that I could essentially declare victory any time I needed to.
- Any time I got tired of the same old same-old, I could throw together some focus groups and change everything.
- It would be the nearest thing to the mystique and authority of being a priest, without the muss and fuss of actually being one.
- Ignorance is bliss.
