Two quotes that I carry with me, engraved on my heart:
“Question authority” Written in the stairwell of Columbia University’s School of the Arts. It stayed on the wall for the entire 2 years that I was there getting my MFA degree in creative writing.
“Assume nothing. Question everything.” Often said by the late Peter Kim. I had the pleasure of working for Peter first at J. Walter Thompson and then when he started up Bright Sun Consulting.
In the spirit of those two quotes, I present to you a Pop Quiz:
True or false: The number of United States Federal employees in 2010 is lower than in 1975.
True or false: The number of Federal employees dropped during the presidency of George W. Bush.
Don’t peek ahead or poke around on the internet! There is a prize for everyone who gets the answers correct!
