Thoroughly enjoyed this article, Rick. Thanks for sharing. I have always maintained that there is as much intellectual prowess and relevant experience needed to solve a complex physical problem as one more ethereal. The fact that one tends to be compensated better than the other speaks much more to the ability to generate addition compensation than it does to the instrinsic value of the work.

Best line of the article:

So you put the manual away and consider the facts before you. You do this because ultimately you are responsible to the motorcycle (agency) and its owner (customer-advertiser), not to some procedure.

Basically:
Ultimately you are responsible to the customer, not to some procedure.

Amazing how this relates to many professions, including mine. Been in internet advertising operations for over 10 years... process, process, process. To me, if it feels right, it probably is right. And if it feels wrong or you have to ask, it's wrong.

Thanks for posting this Rick.
