Escaping mediocrity on the job

May 20 2014

Every now and then artists come up with something that is so true that it hurts. Escaping mediocrity on the job means escaping mediocrity in life. Nothing cuts deeper and hurts more than looking in the mirror through this creative piece of art by someone called Pick Up Artist. The published cartoon is a critique on those over-confident people who believe in themselves but lack the fortitude and ethics to realize their potential.

Here’s the excerpt that really cuts to the heart about escaping mediocrity:

You look like you’re going to spend your life having one epiphany after another, always thinking you’ve finally figured out what’s holding you back, and how you can finally be productive and creative and turn you life around. But nothing will ever change. That cycle of mediocrity isn’t due to some obstacle. It’s who you are. The thing standing in the way of your dreams is that the person having them is you.
