Scott Adams, creater of Dilbert, describes his vision of the future as an 11-year old.
I was rejected by the Famous Artists School because I was too young. The cutoff was 12-years old.
At that age, I was quite certain I would someday be a famous cartoonist for newspapers. I imagined it quite clearly. And when my career later took a turn toward cubicles, I woke up surprised every day that I wasn’t already a well-known cartoonist. (That is literally true.)
