The Power of a Small Voice: Lessons from Sports Illustrated's Response
Like many sports fans growing up, I loved to read Sports Illustrated, and as a young kid flipping through the magazine’s 1979 Super Bowl preview issue, I noticed some mistakes describing some of the photos. So, I wrote to SI telling them about it.
I never expected a response, but it was so cool when I got one. A typewritten letter from Judith at Sports Illustrated’s publishing office not only taught me the importance of attention to detail, but it also showed me that even the smallest voices can be heard.
In my career as a visual storyteller I've learned that accuracy is essential, and everyone has a story to tell.
The old letter that hangs on my office wall reminds of the time I was recognized by Sports Illustrated, not for the talents of my arm or my legs, but for the awareness of my eyes.
