  1. Reminds me of the line from an old Mac Davis song, “Lord, it’s hard to be humble when you’re perfect in every way”.

  2. you really caught that guy – the lips are doing it: I’m cringing as if he just walked in on me when I was just about to hit it out of the…suddenly the stadium I was in just became a little league baseball pitch…the infield is more dirt and weeds than grass

    He doesn’t know me from adam; even worse/better, doesn’t even care

    Such a nightmare when it happens you know…?

    Thanks for keeping it real

Hugh MacLeod is a genius.  Genius.

Seth Godin
Best Selling Author

His work acknowledges the absurdity of workaday life, while also encouraging employees to respond with passion, creativity, and non-conformity...   MacLeod’s work is undeniably an improvement over the office schlock of yore. At its best, it’s more honest, and more cognizant of the entrepreneurial psyche, while still retaining some idealism.

Last year my State of the College address was 76 slides loaded with data. This year it was 14 cartoons that were substantially more memorable.

"There are only two daily newsletters that I look forward to opening and reading every time they show up to my inbox: Seth Godin's and gapingvoid."

In moments of indecision I glance at the wall [to Hugh's work] for guidance.
