  5. STEP 2:BE IMPOSSIBLETO IGNORE.Steal briefs from theprinter, mock up your ownresponses. Be proactive.Ask so many questionsthat you end up knowingmore than almosteveryone in your studio.Remember you are notbrilliant if the only personyou show your work to isyour mum.
  6. STEP 3: EYE ON THE PRIZEWrite where you want tobe in five years in big,bold letters and tape itover your desk. Write itagain on a small piece ofpaper and put it in yourwallet.
