I will admit to being on a very horrible, obsessive binge of Peep Show. It’s got a lesson for pretty much anything. Deep in the throes of trying to prepare a presentation or working on an article? Why not work on it while receiving a lap-dance?
In this clip, our hero Mark is trying to finish up a presentation whilst receiving a lap-dance. The dancer suggests he distils the main point into one sentence, which he thinks is too simple. She warns him that the presentation might be “too diffuse”. I’ve been there. In that tunnel of over-thought and total blinders to anything other than your idea. Outside perspective is helpful.
I’m sure I could probably do a whole series of lessons from Peep Show (like professional revenge), but I am interested in knowing what lessons you’ve learned from media that have made you a better library “professional”?
