Dilbert and Why I draw

The creator of Dilbert, Scott Adams started to cartoon while on the job at Pacific Bell Telephone Company (now acquired by AT&T), after he was repeatedly passed over for promotion. He said of the lesson this experience taught him:
"The day you realize that your efforts and rewards are not related, it really frees up your calendar. I had time for hobbies."
This is the lesson I learnt. Read the Harvard Business Review blog feature on Scott Adams and his creation Dilbert here.
