Everyone wants to be liked, but as Stan (http://branddna NULL.blogspot NULL.com) tells us, pleasing everyone is a sure-fire way to get nowhere.
I’m sure by now you’ve either seen or read about Ricky Gervais hosting the Golden Globes (http://tv NULL.gawker NULL.com/5735192/watch-ricky-gervais-extremely-uncomfortable-golden-globes-monologue) last week.
Depending on who you listen to, Gervais was either mean spirited and unfunny, or a razor sharp satirist.
Either way, he was anything but dull.
There’s a lesson for every young creative in Ricky’s turn at the Globes I think.
Don’t play it safe.
Because by trying to please everyone, you will end up pleasing no one.
So be brave. Be opinionated. And be prepared to piss people off.
You career could very well depend on it.Tweet
