I am a big fan of Scott Ginsburg from Hello My Name is Blog. Lately it has been like Mr. Toad's Wild Ride around here, so I am a bit behind in my reading. But had to share with you some of Scott's wisdom from his tax day post, How to Make People Hate You:
Be the exception. Nothing pisses people off more than when you refuse to imprison yourself by adopting the illusions they blindly accepted as rules. If only they had your obstinate sense of self-protection. If only.
Sadly, most people are other people. They allow the world to dictate what they want and what’s important to them. You, on the other hand, are the exception to every rule. Or, you change the rules so you can win at your own game. Or, you change the game completely so there are no rules.
Either way, people hate you for that. Well done. What rules don’t you subscribe to?
Scott is so right, and since you know how true his advice is in the fashion world, I am not going to say anything else. (except I am borrowing his image too).
If you are not following Scott on twitter or subscribed to his blog, you should do so immediately. I promise you will not be sorry.
Thank you again Scott for another GREAT post!
