Just because someone desires you, it does not mean that they value you.


Read it over.

Again.

Let those words resonate in your mind.

i love Rixton! @rixtonofficial

I think that [love] it’s one of those things you hear people talk about like “I just knew.” I think that you just know. I think that really is a true thing and I don’t think love is ever going to be perfect and I think that when you are actually in a long relationship and you have to sustain it and work at it, I think that’s a very real thing and it’s not all pretty and sparkly and fairy tale-esque. And it doesn’t really have the stamp of Prince Charming but I think that he would listen to you at the end of a hard day and I think that he’d be there for you and feel like a teammate. But, you know, right now you have to be happy with just being by yourself and if something sneaks up on you, it sneaks up on you.

Inside The Pixar Braintrust
In This Exclusive Excerpt From Creativity, Inc., Ed Catmull Unveils One Of His Management Tools — The Pixar Braintrust, Which Has Helped The Animation Powerhouse Score 14 Box-Office Hits In A Row. 

A hallmark of a healthy creative culture is that its people feel free to share ideas, opinions, and criticisms. Our decision making is better when we draw on the collective knowledge and unvarnished opinions of the group. Candor is the key to collaborating effectively. Lack of candor leads to dysfunctional environments. So how can a manager ensure that his or her working group, department, or company embraces candor? By putting mechanisms in place that explicitly say it is valuable. One of Pixar’s key mechanisms is the Braintrust, which we rely on to push us toward excellence and to root out mediocrity. It is our primary delivery system for straight talk. The Braintrust meets every few months or so to assess each movie we’re making. Its premise is simple: Put smart, passionate people in a room together, charge them with identifying and solving problems, and encourage them to be candid. The Braintrust is not foolproof, but when we get it right, the results are phenomenal.
