I’m privilaged to have several confidants in this business, people who are a little older, exponentially wiser, and offer much needed perspective whenever I’m being an asshole.
I was venting recently to one of them, all the usual bullshit we creative types fixate on. This particular confidant, think stereotypical Oxford professor in appearance and Tourettes-addled marine in preferred language, offered something that’ll stick with me for a long time.
“You’re original. And it’ll be your biggest weakness, until it’s your greatest strength.”
Let’s all endeavor to keep our heads down, stay the course, and create unrelentingly.
