Bits, ink, particles, and words.
You’re struggling to start that new project, to commit to a habit, or to continue the work you know is important. It’s difficult to get up in the morning and convince yourself to work. While you know in your mind that the work is important (and you’re happy once you’re done), each day is a new struggle.
Many of us think we need to be influential or wealthy in order to be generous. After all, that’s how we can do things for others. Without influence or wealth, we can’t help people out like we want to.
When I find someone’s work that I admire, I immediately try to find the place where they store their collection or archive. My goal is simple. If this piece they created is so good, how much more do they have?
One of the things I find myself doing all the time is working with a bunch of distractions. This could be as large as being near someone who is noisy and as small as fiddling with my choice of music every few minutes. The possibilities for distraction are practically infinite.
