I’ve read that writing down goals leads to a higher success rate of meeting them, but every time I write them down, I never meet them. I always have a better outcome if if I don’t put too much focus/pressure on what it is I want. Anyone else experience this?

I’ve seen people squeeze things into one page with 10pt font and barely any blank space..is that preferred over two pages?! Lol

Any advice on how to give constructive criticism on a newbie copywriter's writing. I feel like I spent a lot of time in the past two weeks uttering the phrase "I can see what you're trying to do, but that doesn't really work" and then trying to explain why it doesn't work without saying 'this is bad, try again'. How do you articulate why certain parts of writing are good and others are not?
I really want to help the guy and boost his confidence, but it's starting to take its toll.
I presented multiple ideas that I thought was a game changer and it keeps getting rejected. All these generic traditional ideas are being chosen and it sucks..

Anyone ever work as a “Promotional writer” (copywriter) on the client side of things? How was it? Talking with a recruiter about it and the money is great $140k + bonus, fully remote, but I’ve only ever been at agencies. Says it will focus on 3 therapeutic areas and their strategy, creating the copy for strategy, and managing 3 or so writers beneath me.
I'd like to practice writing tv as much as I can, even outside of work. I'm not motivated enough to write scripts on my own. I'd like to volunteer writing tv ads for a non-profit or something similar. Does anybody know of a site for something like this?

What are three words you've always wanted to put in your copy but, for whatever reason, can't? Mine: callipygian, hent and flatus.
Need some advice/perspective. I’m about a year in at a top agency. Without turning this into a novella…details: hard working, strong teamwork, open to feedback, quick, responsive, talented. These are words I’ve heard from ECD’s/CD’s whom I’ve worked with. My problem: I feel like I have no produced work that’s book worthy. Besides some social posts and one larger campaign that I’m hoping will get produced next year… nada. Is this normal? Bc I see other jr/mid teams who have plenty. Just worried.
