I don’t know if this falls under those topics but my favorite book this year has been Sapiens, by yuval harari. Honestly spectacular read. I also just finished Bad Blood, which follows the rise and fall of Theranos and is definitely juicy 😬

Influence by Robert Cialdini

The worst thing is being “voluntold”. Partners : “Hey, how do you feel about volunteering to lead this? I think you would be great “ Me: “I don’t have the bandwidth to lead that event” Partner : “Let me clarify, you are leading this event, please book a meeting on my calendar.”

Our senior creative leadership keep talking about winning Cannes Lions and D&AD pencils but none of them have actually won any since 2007 (that’s 14 years 😭 ) and between all three of them they’ve never won more than a couple of silvers, a couple of bronzes and a couple of in-books (that’s with a combined experience of over 60 years 😭). They have no clue 🤣🤣🤣😭😭😭. Tell me something about your agency so that I can feel better about the hell-hole I find myself in🙏

If you’re succeeding on all the right metrics (i.e., leadership loves you, clients love you, you’re participating on pitches, you’ve brought in clients, and you’re set up to inherit a book of business), but you’re still not super into it, being promoted to income partner won’t change things, right? Worth sticking out to see or jumping to go in house at a pre-IPO, late stage startup you find super exciting and interesting?

Post-Covid, I just cannot seem to find the inspiration to network at a conference such as the AWS DC summit. I initially wanted to get facetime with vendors to check out potential job openings. But it just feels like a large circle jerk where no productive work gets done. And besides all keynote addresses are recorded and available online anyway. Wondering if anyone out there feels differently or has had better experiences from these events? #aws
