R emember Pinky and The Brain? The mighty cartoon duo whose daily mission is to ‘try to take over the world’? As a creative, you probably have the grand idea of taking over your industry by getting the best opportunities. Do you remember when you were on a winning streak, and nothing could shake your confidence in your abilities? However, you get that one deal, job or once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that could change your life, but you lose it.
This week’s Creative Gist is taking you down memory lane. Although we might be bursting open a pandora’s box of unpleasant memories, you might get a therapeutic experience from it.

When it comes to clinching or losing opportunities, it isn’t just about letting opportunities meet preparation. Instead, it’s also about creating a connected network of relevant stakeholders across industries, developing in-demand skills, and building the capacity to handle the loss of a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and moving on to new opportunities. Combining these factors will make you confident enough to win more than lose.
