I have a personal philosophy in life: If somebody else can do something that I’m doing, they should do it. And what I want to do is find things that would represent a unique contribution to the world – the contribution that only I, and my portfolio of talents, can make happen. Those are my priorities in life. Neil deGrasse Tyson
This is something I believe but don’t always practice. Time after time, I have to bring myself back to the studio. Back to what I say is important to me. So much other stuff gets in the way and calls for my attention.
I justify it by telling myself it’s the responsible thing to do until I realize my priority has shifted again. But that’s okay.
The responsible thing is to show up with our gifts and talents and use them. They are ours for a reason.
The important thing is to pay attention, recover and get back to the studio.
