Just do it

I was a copywriter at JWT. It was my first full time creative role.

I'd been in the job just two years when my creative director departed.

Senior people in the agency suggested my art director and I put ourselves up for the role as joint CDs.

She was keen but I most definitely wasn't.

In fact I still considered myself a junior if truth be told.

Then the unexpected happened. The ECD offered me the job.

I told him I didn't think I was ready.

But he most certainly did.

I've been a CD now on and off for the best part of 20 years.

So if you ever find yourself thinking you aren't ready to do or try something don't worry. Just do it.
