#The50 Things Every Creative Should Know - @JamieWieck
Designer/illustrator and director, Jamie Wieck, decided to write #The50 Things Every Creative Should Know (#the50) when he realised he was not the first, nor the last student to fear the leap between art college and the creative industry.
Inspired by his own, and his friend's (sometimes rocky) experiences within the creative industry, #the50 addresses the most common concerns held by graduating creatives and aims to bridge the gap between college and the professional world.
Here are the first 5 points from #the50.

1. You are not the first
There are very few ‘firsts’ these days. Countless others have started studios, freelanced and requested internships. It can be done. #the50
2. There is always someone better.
Regardless of how good you are, there will always be someone better. It’s surprisingly easy to waste time worrying about this. #the50
3. Success is not a finite resource.
College fosters a zero-sum mentality: that someone has to fail for you to succeed. In truth, another’s success doesn’t limit yours. #the50
4. You cannot score without a goal.
If you don’t know what you want, then how can you pursue it? Having a goal defines an end point, and subsequently, a place to start. #the50
5. Starting anything requires energy.
It takes more energy to start than it does to stop. This is true for physics, your career, and that idea you need to work on. #the50
