This inspirational poem has been hanging on my fridge for as long as I can remember. Even when we moved, my mother packed it away in a box somehwere and popped it onto the side of the fridge in our new house.
As I spend the month of March chasing my dreams (read: find gainful employment in entertainment) I thought it might be interesting to take a closer look at these statements that were ever-present in my life. See if I measure up to these twenty-six rules for supposedly successful people. Or perhaps more accurately, see how this list measures up to more recent advice I’ve been getting from some extremely successful individuals.
So my project while not writing cover letters, following up, and seeking out meetings is to break down this “poem” line by line. Perhaps I’ll find some inspiration. Perhaps I’ll find the things I was told as a child don’t quite ring true as an adult. Either way, I hope to find something interesting.
