Make things happen.

It amazes me how many people just sit around and expect things to happen to them. What a waste of life. There is a societal expectation or belief that after college you get a job and get married and have a family and live happily ever after and . . . and . . . and.

I don't know if anyone has noticed that it's a shit storm out there and the white picket fence isn't going to cut it anymore. We need people who are willing to take a stand, people who are proactive and people who aren't willing to settle for what worked in the last 50-100 years.

One of my favorite people to follow on twitter is @coolsideburns. He said something today that really resonated with me.


Remember to push for change, push for what you think is right. You can do all of this and still be respectful of those who came before you. Remember when William Bernbach and Paul Rand changed the future of advertising by partnering a copywriter and art director together? I feel like it's time for something revolutionary to happen again.

That's my rant for the day now go out and make shit happen.
