Stop drinking champagne for a moment (the winnerest Dutch Webby winner of all)

Het Achterhuis: Webby winnerSo, there were 4 Dutch agencies that won a Webby award tuesday. LBi Lost Boys, KONG Amsterdam, Boondoggle Amsterdam (I did some work on that case as well) and Muse Amsterdam. Congrats to all, team LBi, Yacco, Karlijn, Tom, Gaston, Astrid, Simon and their teams. A great achievement and true examples for the industry.

However, there was only one smart enough to stop drinking champagne for a moment and write a decent press release.
That press release was picked up by Marketingfacts (a large Dutch marketing weblog), before being picked up by (one of the largest Dutch news websites), national newspaper De Volkskrant and even the Dutch evening news.

The winnerest Dutch Webby winner of all is LBi LostBoys.

My learning? Stop drinking champagne for a moment and capitalize on the stuff you’re already doing. That’s when the real prizes are handed out.

There Is No Indispensable Man

There Is No Indispensable Man

Sometime when you're feeling important;
Sometime when your ego's in bloom
Sometime when you take it for granted
You're the best qualified in the room,

Sometime when you feel that your going
Would leave an unfillable hole,
Just follow these simple instructions
And see how they humble your soul;

Take a bucket and fill it with water,
Put your hand in it up to the wrist,
Pull it out and the hole that's remaining
Is a measure of how you will be missed.

You can splash all you wish when you enter,
You may stir up the water galore,
But stop and you'll find that in no time
It looks quite the same as before.

The moral of this quaint example
Is do just the best that you can,
Be proud of yourself but remember,
There's no indispensable man.
