Following last week’s piece about “What is the best piece of advice you have ever received“, we asked you for your own examples . Here is what we received:

From other socials:

“Aaron, I’m going to give you a piece of advice that Hal Riney once gave me. Shut up.” Rich Silverstein to Aaron Griffiths, teaching him you should let the work do the talking.

Flo Heiss: “I make films, drawings, paintings, websites, advertising, photos, installations, typography…the list goes on. Not sure what to call myself.” Brian Eno: “Who cares.”

“Do interesting things and interesting things will happen to you” a Social from John Hegarty

“I don’t think you are good enough to work for the German Railway” Flo Heiss, by his dad, Wolfgang Heiss

“In beginners minds there are many possibilities, in experts minds there are few” from Mark Chalmers
