Daily Dish: A Short Lesson in Perspective

We are just going to leave you with this insightful essay by the late Linds Redding.

Now, log off, go home, and enjoy your life.

A Short Lesson in Perspective

Via Adweek and The San Francisco Egotist

“So was it worth it? Well, of course not. It turns out it was just advertising. There was no higher calling. No ultimate prize.”

That’s one conclusion drawn by Linds Redding in “A Short Lesson in Perspective,” a 3,000-word essay the longtime creative executive wrote on his blog earlier this year, republished by the San Francisco Egotist. Redding was diagnosed with esophageal cancer last year. He died last month at age 52.

Oh. And if your reading this while sitting in some darkened studio or edit suite agonizing over whether housewife A should pick up the soap powder with her left hand or her right, do yourself a favour. Power down. Lock up and go home and kiss your wife and kids.
