Your Work Does Not Speak For Itself

Those who let their work speak for them risk not being spoken about.

If you are not being talked about in the creative workplace, you are invisible. 

Invisible = obscurity.

Of course the work is critical.

You must deliver work that delights your clients. (And I trust that you give credit where credit is due).

But it is not being arrogant to take credit for your work. And it doesn’t require chest thumping. Most of the time graciously accepting kudos for a job well done will suffice.

Yes, consistently delivering amazing work is vital to your success.

But the work does not speak for itself nor for you.

Work – even amazing work – is mute.
