Tips From A Field in the Advertising World from Allen Bialik

“What have I learned?” 

  • Education has NOTHING to do with performance
  • In school you’re taught a lesson, then given a test. In life, you’re given a test that teaches you a lesson.
  • Problem solve quickly and creatively: adapt to change
  • Leadership, attitude, commitment, discipline
  • Responsibility and accountability for job performance
  • Leadership is an essential part of life
  • Discipline is doing what needs to be done. Even when you don’t want to do it.
  • Life is dull to dull people
