Thinking face is on because of a quote I just read by @mickalexis on LinkedIn.
"Stop worrying about whether or not people think you're cool. You're not, and that's perfectly alright. It's more important to be kind anyway."
In this age of driving ambition and constant striving and proving, we all want to be accepted and praised in our industry, by our colleagues, because of our work and achievements. 🧐
But trying to be whatever our network’s version of “cool” is shouldn’t change who we fundamentally are and what we focus on. When I stop producing work years down the road, I sincerely hope people won’t just think to themselves, “Yeah, she was a cool person. Really crushed it in both the marketing and writing worlds.”
No! I hope they think about how I made them feel respected and valued. About how I worked with integrity and kindness. About how I never cut people down, took a dishonest shortcut, or chose gain at the risk of someone else’s hurt.
So “Stop worrying about whether or not people think you're cool. . . It's more important to be kind anyway."
