This is very true. It’s all about your attitude and your drive to do good work regardless of where you’re at. I often hear people say “I wish I got cool projects to work on” but regardless of what you’re working on, it’s up to you to turn it into something amazing.
“Whatever you’re working on today, you have an opportunity to make it really stunning. And if you’re working on something that seems dull, then people should be all the more impressed when you nail it brilliantly.”

Today, I am working on re-creating pie charts into infographics. Because I looked at the pie charts I was supposed to trace in illustrator and saw a story there. I pushed back, talked about my idea, and got everyone excited about it. And now, I get to work on illustration and typography. What I want to do.
If you’re frustrated about where you’re at or the work you’re doing keep in mind that you can always sneak little things that you love into what you’re doing. Show your abilities, they may not know what you’re capable of. You might be surprised at how well it’s received.
Read this article and if you can relate, try and change your attitude. You can do good work regardless of where you’re at. And trust me, you won’t end up where you want to be with a negative attitude.
