Knowing everything

Designer Gemma Perkins in the UK said of her design above, “Sometimes, when you’ve been doing so much work for everyone else – which don’t get me wrong, I absolutely love – it helps to do a little something for yourself. I have always loved this quote, so though I’d share a desktop background with you all… enjoy!” When professionals feel that they know everything there is to know, there is a high likelihood they are high on their ego, or they’ve gone stale.

Stay humble

Designer named Edward
, also in the UK said, “Work Hard Stay Humble is a great quote to live by, and now you can have it on your wall to inspire you, at home or in the office. This excellently designed typography quote has a 3D effect to it to make it really pop, and comes in a choice of 33 different colours.” Humility is important in work, but working hard is essential to success.

Ego and talent

too much ego will kill your talent
A common saying is outlined above, and one that we try our best to live by. Professionals of all types should remember that in order to achieve, it must always be about the talent in the accomplishment, not the personality behind it.
