This is one thing that I did not really think about at first. Because we all strive to become well known in our field. Many people are so obsessed with being famous which is not a good thing.
Because whenever you become Famous you do not have chance to make mistakes. For example if I was a designer who had won Awards and Cannes, Made the cover of How and print magazine and etc you would expect a certain quality of work from me.
“Being a famous designer is like being a famous dentist.” – Noreen Morioka
Being Famous only represents one kind of success and that is publicity. If you are doing something to just be Famous it may be time for you to re-evaluate what your real reason for it is. Not saying that doing things just for the fame and money is bad just remember
Beware of what you become in pursuit of what you want. – Jim Rohn.
