“Epithets for yourself: Upright. Modest. Straightforward. Sane. Cooperative. Disinterested.”

Marcus says not to try and exchange them for others but I have a few additions:

Empathetic. Open. Diligent. Ambitious.

I'm a strategist for bestselling authors and billion dollar brands like American Apparel, Tucker Max and Robert Greene. My work has been used as case studies by Twitter, YouTube and Google and has been written about in AdAge, the New York Times, Gawker and Fast Company.

One response to Pithy.

  1. I love that quote, and I find myself referring to it often, I agree with two of your four additions but (Empathetic & Open) seem to fly in the face of being disinterested and I would say that it is more often then not a good thing to be open, I would use the word accessible in its stead.
