Taking risks gives me energy.
Sometimes the most important job advertising can do, is to clarify the obvious.
I'm uncomfortable when I'm comfortable. I have to start something new-in the agency or in my personal life-every two years or so. Taking risks gives me energy. I can't help it, it's my personality. I'd like to think it's not really a compulsion toward high risks, but the spirit of an entrepreneur.
If you can't be bothered to work on Saturday, don't bother to come in on Sunday.
The intellectual architecture means focusing on doing great work instead of focusing on agency politics.
