Picky people have consistent preferences and standards.
Difficult people change their preferences frequently, and often in response to who is presenting to them or the mood they’re in.
It’s pretty easy to figure out which makes for a better client or colleague.
which one do you think you are? be honest.
i’ve been called both, but usually in the same context — when i know what i want and [often] don’t settle for anything else…
how would you deal with what you don’t want?

🐦 TWEETS of the WEEK
this is my favourite 🧵 of the week!

A few weeks ago I was in London for the day. I took the first train down, & finished work by early afternoon.

My return train was at 8:46pm, so I spent the afternoon going round the Monopoly route.

I thought it would be interesting to photograph London at such a unique time. https://t.co/4hGmXQUOym
