STEP 1:SUCK IT UP!If you
WANT IT badenough you would havemade it happen by now.Don’t blame anyonebut yourself for doinguninspired work.BE your own inspiration!
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.
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. Soon it won’t bewhere you want to beBUT where I WILL be infive years. If you don’tfully, 100 % believe thatyou’re the next big thingthan why would anyoneelse.
STEP 5: BE YOURESELFIt is
cheesy I know but be true towho you are in your work, in yourrelationships with people, and Ibelieve that one day you will wakeup and be doing exactly what youalways dreamed of doing. In theadvertising industry there areenough fake and arrogantpersonality, to stand out beyourself. Be vulnerable. Be willing.Take criticism, but don’t let it takeover who you are. And you willstand apart from the crowd.
