This weekend I flipped through the pages of this new book I got (Whatever you think, think the opposite) I stumbled upon this funny (but true) quote:
“When I was Creative Director at Saatchi’s I gave a young man a grilling for production an underwhelming piece of work. Later in the day, somebody told me he was in his office crying. I went along to console him. I said, ‘Don’t worry, I was useless at your age too.'”
An IM conversation earlier tonight reminded me of the quote and made me blog it, so this one’s for all the ‘interns’ out there.
:-) Good quote, I certainly hope I’m not useless.
I’m pretty sure you aren’t useless, but it did suit our conversation ‘about the intern in the room’ we had yesterday don’t you think ;)
true, experience is one of the best talents. :-)
