Got this one from World’s Strongest Librarian, one of my new favorite blogs:
If someone can write down your job description, they can find someone to do your job cheaper. There’s no job description that describes being yourself.
This one rang true to me because I was recently asked to describe what my day job is, and realized that, all arrogance aside, any attempt to relate what I “do” in terms that are easily digested would only result in cheapening the truth about what I accomplish each day.
I also recently had to post-pone ordering my calling cards from a fantastic designer because I couldn’t decide what I wanted them to say. So far all I’ve come up with is “Creative”.
