Thank you for giving me a few moments of your time.
Every moment—well, minus the 1/3 of my life when I’m horizontal and unconscious—I have the power to exercise my free will to decide what to do with my time. Since you are on the Internet, you likely also have this power and freedom. (Many people do not.)
Which moments do I regret? The ones where my choices were not intentional. Moments where I was habitual. Moments where I was reactive.
Knowing about a tool is one thing. Having the guts to use it in a way that brings art to the world is another.
~ Seth Godin
I know my tools. I have the guts to use them. I’m bringing my art to the world.
…know what I cannot figure out? How to be successful—not how to make money, but rather how to feel that what I’ve done and what I’m doing are enough.
Theoretically, if you know what you love, then every time you make a decision you’ll have a pretty damn clear idea if it’s taking you closer or further away from what you love. You’ll know the right thing to do. So self-love is a moral issue. It consists of doing the right thing, and nothing else.
~ David Cain
If you put it that way, that would me that all of my problems are my responsibility. There is, after all, nothing in my power beyond my reasoned choices.
