Mr. Archivist's Neighborhood
Lover of Archives, Libraries, Rare Books, Mysteries, Whisky, West Ham United, & more.
Haven't met a line that I didn't like crossing--repeatedly.
  • "Nobody ever takes note of [my advice], because it’s not the answer they wanted to hear,” Martin said. “What they want to hear is ‘Here’s how you get an agent, here’s how you write a script,’ … but I always say, ‘Be so good they can’t ignore you.’"
    Advice from Steve Martin on building a career you love, from Cal Newport’s So Good They Can’t Ignore You: Why Skills Trump Passion in the Quest for Work You Love. Also see other great thinkers and creators on how to find your purpose and do what you love.

    Good advice for all you newer archivists, librarians, and others looking to get hired or make your mark: “Be so good they can’t ignore you.”
