Life is too short to wait for a final product, look for payoffs throughout your process
Hello everyone, I’m sorry that it has been a while. I am looking to update this thing and use it as a means to more frequently and with greater eloquence discuss topics of design, advertising, creativity, and my own sources of inspiration. I started writing this post numerous times, in each instance embarking on a weighty, self indulgent tirade reflecting on what I have learned and grown from during the first year of my career. Well, in short it is this: Work harder than everyone else around you, never be satisfied with the work that you manage to produce amid constant distraction, and realize that you only get one chance on this earth to make an impression. Even worse guess what–it won’t be through the work that you produce. Seriously. Design, advertising, art, architecture, it’s all just physical rubbish. Live your life so that other’s may remember you as a standout, someone who cared far more about other individuals than yourself, and you will leave a legacy far greater than you can possibly imagine.
On that note, if you have to work why not make doing that work a blast. I was late to this party, but I stumbled across Ryan Leslie last week on YouTube. Here is an individual who loves the process of making music as much as he does listening to the final tune. Enjoy and please, remind everyone whom you care for that you love them.
