Anonymous asked: Do you have any advice on becoming a strategist?
First figure out what you want to provide strategy towards. There’s so many facets of it and you can find something that plays to your strengths.
For me it’s brand strategy, product strategy, design strategy and business strategy usually focused around a consumer product or service.
All strategy boils down to is the ability to articulate how someone goes from point A to B and why they should do it a certain way and the results of how’ll they’ll succeed if they do.
As for “becoming a strategist”, I say dive in. Find openings in shops that are looking for Jr people or even internships to get your feet wet.
As this is the first time anyone’s ever asked me on here this type of question, feel free to keep ‘em coming folks.

"I think that movies are different things to different people. To me, they’re a really important part of cultural identity. They’re a great touchstone to who we were and what were on about at any given time. You look back to the cinema of the ’70s and ’80s and you see all different types of actors and palettes. It wasn’t so much about physical perfection. You had very odd leading men. It’s interesting how movies and culture reflect who we are. You’ll find that the movie business is paid for by those mega movies. The movie business is paid for by Big Macs. By movies as product. Movie studios use that term “product” all the time. Product? You mean you have a lot of stories? No, we have a lot of product. You have stories."

Too be honest, they could do it. Dr Dre, Jimmy Iovine, iTunes, iOS, bloody Bono! There’s enough clout there to make some pretty nuts stuff come out of thin air.
Nothing says, “This has gotten out of hand” like a New Yorker think piece on hip-hop.

Chapter 9. Optimism
When the determinants of future events are unknowable, how should one prepare for them? How can one? Given that some of those determinants are beyond the reach of scientific prediction, what is the right philosophy of the unknown future? What is the rational approach to the unknowable – to the inconceivable? That is the subject of this chapter.
One of the more intimidating ways to start a chapter.
