Learn and keep learning your fundementals, all aspects, from design to layout to color, business fundementals as well...know how to pick and choose your battles, know when not to become attatched to your work, when running the show realize your employees strengths and know how to let them do their job, realize your weakness, realize your passion, don't forget who you are, don't forget who's around you, remember the things you knew as a child, remember why you are doing art in the first place, don't kill your producer, don't kill the mood, kill the stress, kill the ego(as much as possible), share your knowledge, share your passion, borrow a little, take office supplies, take a two hour lunch, give yourself and keep it simple...these are just a few things I'll tell myself on occassion...
