Home is where the art is.
Visual storytelling. Wes Anderson films. Modern Art. Bob Dylan. And dogs.
"Everything is figureoutable." – Marie Forleo
I admire Candy Chang, whose art actually transforms neighborhoods and the people who interact in them. I admire women who use their voices to inspire social awareness and positive change, like Janet Mock, Michelle Obama, Gloria Steinem, and Alicia Garza. I admire (and am indebted to) J.K. Rowling for creating the most magical safe haven for us imaginative, introverted children. And for embracing life as a journey of self-reflection and compassion, I love and admire my mom.
My EQ. And my sense of smell.

Holley Murchison 8 Lessons in Love
We're encouraged here to be different and not for the sake of being different, it's for the sake of being yourself and recognizing the sum of the parts that creates you rather than shunning some to appear more authentic or hiding some to appear cool or hip.
We really hate the myth of the lone entrepreneur, because it just doesn't exist. There's no solo genius. You have to recognize your support networks and the people who work with you to accomplish a goal.
In an attention starved world, engagement matters.
You only live once, so, let’s spend more time on the work that matters.
If you let go of the assumption that someone expects you to say yes, it actually becomes significantly easier to say no.
The idea is to invent progress hacks that make your creative work as addictive as email or social media.
It’s very difficult to avoid distraction when you’re not extremely clear on what you would rather be doing.
Ideas are easy, execution is hard
Once we understand why we’re so addicted to distraction, we can be more conscious about how we confront it in the future.
It's incredibly easy to be busy, but it's incredibly difficult to be deliberate, to stay focused. And the thing is, you can’t actually produce anything of value without being focused.
Jocelyn Glei Working in the Age of Distraction
Women challenge the status quo because we are never it.
I am doing something about what everybody knows and nobody ever speaks about.
Rena Tom "Chance"
Chance is not anything that happens to you. It's something you give to yourself. But you have got to ask for it. You've got to listen for it. And you shouldn't cut yourself off from it by over-analyzing and over-optimizing your life.
You have an opportunity to influence your own destiny. And free will is shaped by everything you do and have seen and all the people you've interacted with.
Make things a little bit uncomfortable for yourself sometimes so that you have to pay more attention.
Chance becomes this cumulative thing and not, you know, a lightning bolt from the sky.
I think the myth of the lone genius has been pretty well debunked at this point. And while there are rare geniuses who are brilliant all on their own, the game isn't really over for the rest of us.
