Quick Gems – “Be so good they can’t ignore you”


When comedian Steve Martin was interviewed at the Charlie Rose show, he was asked for his advice for young entertainers. He replied: “Nobody takes note of my advice because it’s not the advice they want to hear. What they want to hear is – here’s how you get an agent or write a script…But I always say – be so good they can’t ignore you. Think about how you can be really good, and people will come to you.”

Martin himself innovated his act to one that could not be ignored for ten years. And when it was ready, it was a monster success.

Today, let’s remember to constantly add value to yourself. Grow yourself, develop yourself, manage yourself, discipline yourself, build yourself…be so good you can’t be ignored!
