It wasn’t until recently that I started taking the idea of my time more seriously. I can literally replace every possession I have - I can buy new luggage, cars, homes, watches, and gear. I can replace everything and anything. Everything except time lost on things I didn’t really want to be doing. Time spent making things that I refuse to put my name on. Things that didn’t inspire me or remind me of why I love what I do.

If you’re not careful you can quickly find yourself caught up being “busy”. Taking every job simply because of the paycheck or in order to fill empty days on your calendar. Diluting your brand until there’s nothing left of the vision you once had. What’s worse is the time you spend letting your creativity slowly wither away is time you could have spent making something that mattered. Something that inspired others and brought some form of beauty to the world around you.
