I have been told a zillion times not to take things personally.
“It’s pure professional. Nothing personal”
“Don’t take it personal lah…”
“You are being too personal lah! Come on! Be a pro!”
Oh well, I am now tired of hearing those preaches.
Let me tell you my point of view. Personally.
my decision to join advertising agency, was very much personal.
Because I like it. For no reason.
Not because I think I can get rich.
Not because I think I can have a better life.
Simply, because I personally, like it!
my discipline habit that close to army, is very much personal.
Because I want to do it for myself.
Not because of you.
Not because of the company.
Simply, I personally believe that by living my life with strict discipline,
I will enjoy life more.
those clients who have given me so much faith in running their advertising campaign,
is because of their personal judgment.
Not because the number of awards I have.
Not because I do better ads.
Simply, because they believe me. They have faith in me.
And in return, I do my best.
my decision to move from one agency to another agency and lastly becoming a freelancer,
is because of my personal believes.
I do not believe that it’s worth giving your life to advertising.
I do not believe that we have to constantly humiliate and downgrading our intellectuality
just because we want money from clients.
I do not believe that we have to shut our mouth even if we think something it’s not right.
Will I do all those in the name of being professional? Will you?
I would rather take it personally.
And the list will go on and on and will end to one sentence,
I was born for a personal reason.
I live my life for a personal ambition.
And I think, I had prove to myself, at least to my mom,
that I manage to survive living my life personally.
Not to mention being distinctive,
in this world so called a professional world.
