“don’t be normal”

There seems to be a conversation happening internally at my client, Rackspace. Spearheaded by people like Robert Scoble and the guy who hired him (and who also hired me), Rob La Gesse.

“Don’t be normal”.

Who wants a “normal” job, anyway?

Who wants a “normal” employer, anyway?

Who wants a “normal” life, anyway?

Exactly.

So why not say it, loud and proud?

So I drew some cartoons on the subject.

I’m thinking they’d make great recruiting posters…

[P.S. At the time of posting this, Rob hasn't seen these cartoons yet. He lets me post my ideas "live", without having to go through him first. THAT IS WHY I'm psyched to be working with Rob and Rackspace. Just so you know.]

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.
