Why do we strive for excellence when mediocrity is required? -- So how good do you want to be? -- You can achieve the unachievable -- 'I want to be as famous as Persil Automatic' -- Have you noticed how the cleverest people at school are not those who make it in life? -- The fundamentals -- Energy -- Do not seek praise, seek criticism -- It's all my fault -- Do not covet your ideas -- Don't look for the next opportunity. The one you have in hand is the opportunity -- Accentuate the positive -- Eliminate the negative -- Do not put your cleverness in front of the communication -- Don't promise what you can't deliver -- Know your client's aims -- What do you do when your client won't buy -- Don't take no for an answer -- When it can't be done, do it. If you don't do it, it doesn't exist -- If you can't solve a problem, it's because you're playing by the rules -- The person who doesn't make mistakes, is unlikely to make anything -- 'Fail, fail again. Fail better' -- It's wrong to be right -- It's right to be wrong -- Don't be afraid of silly ideas -- Give yourself some spin -- Play your cards right -- It's not what you know -- It's who you know -- Don't give a speech. Put on a show -- Getting fired can be a positive career move -- And now for a commercial break -- Doing a layout means having an idea -- Compose your aid from the weakest point -- Rough layouts sell the idea better than polished ones -- If you get stuck, draw with a different pen -- Suppliers are only as good as you are -- Don't be afraid to work with the best -- Get out of advertising -- Do not try to win awards -- You don't have to be creative to be creative -- How you can make your company great -- How a senior manager can make a big difference -- How a junior account handler can make a big difference -- How a media buyer can make a big difference -- New business -- What is meant by the word 'creative'? -- How to improve your strike rate -- Final thoughts -- My finest hour.
