Favorite quotes from this talk See all

Most of [the time we spend] is chasing someone else's idea. And when I think about how I look at my work, it's important to me that I feel like I have my own perspective, and that I have someplace that I'm starting from that's mine—and that takes time. — Chris Eichenseer
