A year ago today

I started writing daily a year ago. I’ve missed a few days here and there and then caught up, but the idea was to keep me thinking of things to say and to keep exposing those thoughts to the light. It’s all been for personal development and it’s helped me immensely, I have no delusions that this has been useful to anyone else, but I think a few people have gotten a kick out it. Since starting this scheduled accountable creativity, I’ve transferred this method to releasing new music every 6 weeks and have so far released 4 new songs within this schedule, something I’ve never done before and some the best music I’ve ever made. Valuing the deadline over the product has led me to enjoy the process over the result. When you don’t have time to focus on the end result, and you have to move on to the next project, you start to appreciate the process more, you also care less about praise and criticism. No praise or criticism can take away the joy of doing the thing. Or as one of my favorite quotes from Hustle and Flow states: “People who walk the walk sometimes talk the talk, but most times they don't talk at all, 'cause they walkin'.”
