The Monday Morning WHIP // 151


While we’re now three, and have accumulated Fisher Price trucks, kitchens and play pens, Stan (http://branddna NULL.blogspot thinks you should now be onto it enough to have lost the training wheels.

Junior turned three this week.

Experts say that children learn more in their first three or four years than they do throughout the rest of their life.

I’m not sure if that’s 100% true, but it sure sounds impressive when you quote it.

If it is true, then it stands to reason that if you visit Junior regularly then you should by now have absorbed enough wisdom to last you a lifetime.

Or a least enough for a career.

Which you most probably have, but chances are it isn’t enough to get you through the door and behind a desk.

And as harsh as it may sound, that is the grim reality.

But, as the cliché goes, when the going gets tough the tough get going.

So don’t dismay. Don’t feel sorry for yourself. And definitely don’t give up.

Getting a job where you make money from your creativity has never been easy.

If it was every idiot with a half baked idea would be doing it.

Keep on working on your concepts. Keep on sharing your thinking with senior people. Keep on asking for criticism of your work. Keep on making coffees to support yourself in the mean time. And most of all keep on keeping on.

Because you don’t need to be the best qualified person for the job. You need to be the person with the passion and persistence to land it.
