Here's a humble look into the world of working culture in the creative world... It's not perfect, but it's human.

Views are my own and published every week - mid week-ish, with far too many commas and of course some language... just because.

On another note... I'm taking a few weeks off here as June is the mother of all that is busy. I'll be back, up and running in no time.


Giving Up, Giving In

“Well, that’s just the way it is”… is the worst thing I’ve ever heard. It’s the most ominous of barriers. It’s the most crass way that someone can say “I don’t care, and you shouldn’t either”.

Statements and attitudes like this are the best way to kill the momentum and energy of people that are passionate about their work.

Why would that statement ever be uttered?

Contempt

We all have adversity. We’ve all been wronged or have had obstacles put in front of us. So? Get over it. Giving up is no way to fix things.

Laziness

This is fine if you’ve checked out. What’s not fine is getting in other peoples way by making it harder for them to get something done. Move.

Ego

It’s so destructive. It stops people from seeing the reality of any given situation. It stops collaboration and certainly kills any meaningful interaction.

I say we use statements like: “Well, that’s just the way it is”… to motivate ourselves and make sure it changes to: “No, that’s the way it was.”
