It’s important to have a set time and place to be able to play in and get in to that mental space where you can have fun.
Be professional, not a professional.
When you are doing something that excites you and you are interested in 100%, that people can kind of sense that on some subconscious level and kind of gets them excited as well and they want to be involved.
When you are playing, your work is really authentic and it’s about you and what you’re interested in.

It's much more about celebrating small wins, short circuiting feedback loops, or reducing the latency between effort and meaningful feedback, than it is about fixating upon distant goals and targets.
Goals narrow our focus, we fixate on one destination in the future which robs us of our ability to explore tangential opportunities along the way.
No one sets out to become irrelevant, but many of us find ourselves there when we become too busy for meaningful progress.

Rachel Service Embrace your inner weirdo.
It’s a part of being human. Is to not only acknowledge these big life questions but to say yes to them, even if they are scary to go into.
In my work, in my writing, I prioritise my humanity and my willingness to show up as a human as more important than the medium itself.
