Cutting corners is, in actuality, a shorter path to nowhere. Artists that pay to be seen are con-artists. Artists that sublimate through doing the work, feeling the pain, and experiencing the growth are the artists that win. They are the ones that earn the right to call themselves artists. And they are, ultimately, the onesContinue reading “Buying an experience vs. Making an experience”
I am not good at it yet, I have to put in the time.
News outlets are focused on visualizing the pandemic, illustrating the leading and lagging indicators to map the virus’s progression, behavior, and growth. Given what we know, statistically, the predictive approach intends to inform, as an approximation. Where it is. Where it is going. In this case, we’re following the data logarithmically. It shows change, rate,Continue reading “Linear Vs. Logarithmic”
Distancing is difficult for the extrovert and often easier for the introvert. However, eliminating our need for human connection is challenging for all. While challenging, the exercise should motivate ourselves to think about the idea of distancing and how we can best deal with detaching from things that cause us harm, despite how important itContinue reading “S.D”
For many, the current tech-tooling-workflow environment is overwhelmed by options. On average, an employee at any medium sized company, is likely to utilize 5 separate, if not more, platforms, at any given time.

Is your projection a projection of the EGO or a projection of the ID? Authentic work is projecting your authentic self. That authentic, primal place, is the ID. Turn inwards, reach for your ID, and project it through your work.

However, our life experience should not rely on any singular, myopic, path. Rather we should assume that another path can be pursued at any other time; a 2nd act in life,Continue reading “Your 2nd Act”
Organizations and artists often face internal strife. Startups focus on proving out theories as to whom or what is of value and what should or should not be automated. Artists become distracted and debilitated by others’ ‘art’. When organizations observe their competition taking aggressive measures they respond in a similar fashion. Needless to say, theseContinue reading “Internal/External Competition”
When is the last time you keenly watched a turntable’s stylus careen around a vinyl record? Probably not recently, if ever. However, at that microscopic level, magnified by an order of 1000x, you can witness the actual system at work. A delicate balance of weight, size, physics, precision, and style. Similarly, our ‘true north’ compassContinue reading “Balance and Style”
A decade has passed. 3650 days, 87600 hours, and 5.256e+6 seconds later, 2020 is here. But at any rate, this uniquely positions us to evaluate, analyze, understand, and create a better path forward. That is, a clearer perspective, allowing the past to inform the present, but not allowing the future to overwhelm the present. EasierContinue reading “Hindsight is 20/20 & 20/20 is Superposition”
