For some reason, people ask for my advice on a whole bunch of stuff.
No, I don’t know why either – unless they want to find out what I’d do and then do the opposite, which sounds quite a good idea.
As I’ve said before, I will never tell people what to do, because apart from having no right to do that, ultimately, we all have to take responsibility for our own decisions [and mistakes, hahaha] … which is why, despite having written a bunch of posts on how to survive – and sometimes thrive – this industry:
+ Career advice from a dummy.
+ Comfort is the enemy of progress.
+ Don’t wait until you’re spoken to.
+ Actions speak louder than mission statements.
+ It’s called a brief for a reason.
+ Does fitting in meaning mean tuning out.
+ Choose your boss, not the agency.
+ We need more imperfect solutions.
… I still say, as Mr Zappa endorses, the best advice is to never listen to anyone’s advice.
