My Jerry Maguire moment. Or why I'm the CEO, bitch.

Published on

The word desk comes from the Modern Latin desca, “table to write on”, from the mid 14th century. Medieval illustrations show the first pieces of furniture designed and constructed for reading and writing. Desks provide a practical and physiological purpose, but this is not (and should not be) where the creativity is encouraged.

  • The first red slide was actually 60secs of silence to open with the point that whilst often awkward, pauses are an important skill to embrace and learn to use.

  • \n
  • Pause.\n\nPauses are awkward aren’t they. \n\nThey can also be really powerful.\n\nNow we have that out the way it shouldn’t get more awkward than that.\n
  • What can they expect from the talk?\n\nI’m going to be making some bold statements. But I am not preaching.\nMost are changes I need to make or have made.\n\nNot judging you. You might disagree. It’s like religion. Whatever floats your boat.\n

  • Keep looking, keep sharing, life is amazing. Mr Bingo (illustrator) recently commented in an interview that he’s not sure he ‘gets inspired’ because inspiration is all around him and that often being alone helps him find it - at a pub, on a train, wherever.\nInspiration is NOT AT YOUR FUCKING DESK!\n
  • The odd animated gif animation, just because. (not cats, hate cats)\n
  • Lots of intelligent, thought provoking quotes, written by someone more intelligent, that back up my argument, obviously.\n
  • The odd animated gif animation, just because. (not cats, hate cats)\n
  • The odd animated gif animation, just because. (not cats, hate cats)\n
  • Not literally, but whatever floats your boat\n\nI was going to call my talk this?\n\nDESKS ARE NOT WHERE CREATIVITY HAPPENS. \nIt’s not the meeting room. \nThe sofa (creating the illusion of not working).\n\n
  • Then I thought this would be better. Love how an asterix is somehow better than the letter.\n
  • Inspired by a recent blog post I wrote.\n
  • I asked a good friend of mine who is smarter and younger, so I used this. \n\nAPOLOGISE TO TWEETERS: To all the tweeters out there that are now having to annoyingly post new tweets introducing my talk I apologise.\n
  • So the grass is always greener, right? We hear this a lot. We each think it alot.\n
  • GET THEM TO ASK ME?\n\nNo. But it’s interesting the kind of responses you get?\n
  • \n
  • \n
  • \n
  • \n
  • \n
  • \n
  • GET ALL OF THEM TO ASK ME ‘HOW BUSY ARE YOU STEVE’\n\nBECAUSE IT’S AGAINST THE NORM TO SAY ‘I’M NOT BUSY’\n\nWho is saying this?\n\n\n
  • GET ALL OF THEM TO ASK ME ‘HOW BUSY ARE YOU STEVE’\n\nBECAUSE IT’S AGAINST THE NORM TO SAY ‘I’M NOT BUSY’\n\nWho is saying this?\n\n\n
  • Not these guys\nNotice it’s not ICU nurses, bus drivers, or people doing three minimum wage jobs to support themselves and their family moaning about being busy, they are just tired. It’s usually people whose lamented busyness is purely self-imposed: work and obligations they’ve taken on voluntarily, classes and activities they’ve “encouraged” their kids to participate in.\n

  • Not pearls.\n\nStudents/graduates might find it useful\n\nEqually my peers might agree, or disagree - either is fine.\n
  • Boasts disguised as a complaint. Like it’s a good thing, right? \n\nIf you say the opposite - ‘I’m not that busy’ that some how means you aren’t as good.\n\nThe ‘Busy’ Trap, NY Times - TIM KREIDER\n\n
  • The pressure of work. \nOthers work late, so you work late. It’s an ever descreasing circle. Longer hours, less pay, more stress, less exercise, poor diet leads to illness and eventually DEATH MOTHERFUCKER. \n\n
  • Another great quote from What Work Is Really For by Gary Gutting (NY Times)\nPAUSE\n\n
  • Another great quote from In Praise of Idleness by Bertrand Russell IN 1932!!!!\n
  • In his book Clotaire Rapaille discusses codes for culture. In France Food is seen as a Pleasure. You will never rush a French chef or meal. They have no concept for ‘fast food’. They’re attitude is ‘wait, when it is ready - it will be ready.’\n\nThis is a great philosophy for design, and one we should adopt.\n
  • It seems a common trait to align the metaphor of food with design. As Dave (who spoke earlier) did in his book ‘A User Guide to the Creative Mind’. \n\nThis is no accident. The French also believe in ‘eating well\n
  • - Maverick, Ricardo Semler (SEMCO)\n\n
  • - Angela Nin was a French-Cuban author\n\n
  • Inspiration comes from many places. Inspiration is not ideas, it’s seeing, hearing, feeling - or in my case seeing the rude and naughty everywhere.\n\n'Meanwhile in Bergen a horny digger mounts a reluctant but passive truck.'\n\nDON’T Take what you do or yourself too serious\nDO look at everything.\n
  • Exchanges of information are through meetings, or conference calls, or via Skype. Why? WHY?\nBecause most creatives write "Scary, semi-literate, gibberish,"\nWriting is so important, but I am guilty of technology over-use too.\n\n
  • You know what this is?\nThis is our industry. \nThe tail is technology.\nWe’re now chasing an impossibility.\nLike striving for perfection: PERFECTION DOESN’T EXIST! \nWhy try and be happy when you can be normal. \nIt’s human engineering - we’re brilliant at setting ourselves up for to fail. Why? Fuck that.\n\n
  • I am not suggesting we’re doing it wrong. I wouldn’t be that lame.\n
  • I am telling you we’re doing it wrong.\n\n
  • I want to go there.\n(pawn shop in Sweden)\n
  • So it’s not what I say, it’s what I do.\nPractising what you preach.\nNot that easy. Not for everyone. Some of you might even be ‘happy’.\nAll of these ideas about working for yourself, from home, from a beach, #FuckDesks (whatever) is not always that easy or feasible for everyone. \nBut I will explain at least how I’m trying to do it.\n
  • Not pearls.\n\nStudents/graduates might find it useful\n\nEqually my peers might agree, or disagree - either is fine.\n
  • Sounds silly?\n\n10 deep breathes. Close eyes - not naked when you open them.\n
  • Saying yes too much has massive negative knock-on effects to those you work with, your other clients, their clients clients, your family, friends, loved ones.\n
  • hairdresser names rule ok\nbest one - ‘Curl up and Dye’\n
  • Spent my career comparing myself to my peers\n\nPunishing myself for not being as successful, intelligent or as popular as them\n\nLearning to accept myself and what I do and the way I do it\n\nCamilla said that I have ‘simply carved out a different way of working to them’\n\nThis is ok - IT IS OK STEVE - SAY IT!\n\n
  • Collaborate and listen.\n\nNot just with others but with clients. Sounds obvious? Most people don’t.\n\nIt is not the responsibility of a client to know how to write a brief.\n\nIt is not the responsibility of a client to need to know how you do your job.\n\nIt IS your responsibility to know everything you can about them and their brand/product.\n
  • Collaborate and listen.\n\nNot just with others but with clients. Sounds obvious? Most people don’t.\n\nIt is not the responsibility of a client to know how to write a brief.\n\nIt is not the responsibility of a client to need to know how you do your job.\n\nIt IS your responsibility to know everything you can about them and their brand/product.\n
  • \nImagine if Tim Berners Lee hadn’t shared his idea?\n\nOr Linus Torvalds hadn’t shared his Linux or GIT hub software?\n\nIf you open up, share and stop being so fucking protective you might find you’ll gain\n
  • Sounds obvious, but your network is part of your worth and value.\n\nLinkedin - say HELLO\n
  • “The only effective way to understand what people truly mean is to ignore what they say...”\n\nThis is why polls and surveys are often misleading (like briefs) because they simply reflect\nwhat people say, rather than what they mean.”\n\nClotaire Rapaille\n
  • Who doesn’t love a sign with the word ‘fart’ in it?\n\n
  • You wouldn’t expect this newborn foal to go run the Grand National and win?\n\nIdeas are the same - that’s not to make out that our ideas are as precious as new life\n\nbut that they need time to be nurtured otherwise the risk of falling and the first fence and being shot in the face with a shotgun is more likely.\n
  • (I used a drop shadow, sorry).\n
  • I am guilty of not making time.\n\nThis idea was born from being drunk with Mr Shoben. \n\nNOT AT MY DESK.\n
  • fed up of saying ‘I didn’t have time’ - sorry was the \n
  • I love penguins.\n
  • There’s never been a better time to be in this industry. There’s never been a tougher time. Best time to start a business.\n\nWas challenged last time whether this was bullshit! It isn’t.\n
  • Inspired a short story ‘The man who took his shoes off’\n\n
  • \n
  • ‘Brainstorms’ - the word is bad enough\n\nMy head won’t shut the fuck up as it is!\n\nIt’s not the concept of sitting around discussing ideas. \nIt is the forced nature of it. The pressure to do it in one room, at one time. Like that’s THE ONLY time.\n\ni have ideas on the toilet, in a bar, flying - ALWAYS best ideas 38,000ft up.\n
  • This is the Arland Express serving Stockholm’s main airport.\nIt’s a train and although it cost £45 return, it is a beautiful example of how transport can be comfortable and spacious. Why can’t Airplanes be like this?\n\n
  • \n
  • Yes, I am this infantile. \nPong restaurant next to a shop called CUM. \nGenius.\n\n
  • \n
  • \n
  • You want the best resume? Make something. Make lots of things. Even things that don’t work. You go for a job as a graduate or a senior position it doesn’t matter how old or how much experience - it’s not what you SAY it is what you DO.\n
  • What is the future? \n\nNetworks. Collaborations. Small, mobile, remote teams working from beaches, beds, broom cupboards, wherever. \n
  • What is the future for me? \n\nLove & Support - a new entity based on those new ideals, new methods to approach this work. More time, Quality, not quantity. Agile. Flexible with love and support. The only one thing we all agree on is ‘deliver’.\n\nIf this isn’t possible then fine, but I’d rather try it than give up because I’ve been told it’s not possible.\n

  • The grass might be greener. \nThat agency might win more awards, your friend has a better car, girlfriend, boyfriend, better body... who cares. Even all that comes at a price, so concentrate on your own grass and make it better.\n\n
  • The grass might be greener. \nThat other agency might win more awards\nYour friend might have a better car, better looking girlfriend, boyfriend, better body... who cares. \nEven all that comes at a price, so concentrate on your own grass and make it better.\nIf that means doing less to do more, then do it. Before it is too late.\n\n
