Imagine you have been imprisoned for a crime you haven’t committed.
Imagine you’re sentenced to hard labour in a place that will test you to the limit.
Imagine you have to answer to a tyrant bastard who is committed to making your life hell.
Now you can understand what it is like to be Leon.
And who is Leon, I hear you cry?
Well he is one of my wonderful and talented planning colleagues.
He is also the person who featured in my April Fool method planning post a few years ago.
Anyway the reason for this post is that after 4+ years working with me, he is being freed from my clutches.
Better than that, he’s being freed so he can help our NY office on a few things for a few months.
Except he’s not.
He’s worked like a bastard … and to see his rise from intern to international planner makes me very proud and happy.
He’s smart, sharp and full of energy and passion for great creative work.
Those would be great traits in any planner, but for someone from China – a country that promotes ‘group acceptance’ and ‘safe expression’, it means he is a rare breed which is why I’m very excited to see what he does and what he learns while he’s over there.
So go be ace Leon and do what you do best, but don’t forget … you’re back in 3 months so don’t slag me off too much. Though, given the photos I chose to use for this post, I accept it will be hard not to.
