Take Your Work Seriously, But...

Posted by Criswell Freeman on

January 9.

On this day in 1959, the television show Rawhide premiered on CBS. The show featured the considerable talents of a charismatic young actor named Clint Eastwood (he played the role of cowpuncher Rowdy Yates). Eastwood later gained international acclaim in a spaghetti western called A Fistful of Dollars. From there, he went on to star and direct in a string of Hollywood thrillers. When questioned about the keys to his success, Eastwood had the following advice: “Learn to take your work seriously, but not yourself seriously.” What worked for Clint will work for you, too. So now, with no further ado, let’s head ‘em up, and move ‘em out with the following bright ideas.
