You are only as smart as the people you talk to. Travel, new places & new acquaintances fuel creativity & learning. Break routines, talk to people.
You are only as smart as the people you meet and talk to. Everyone is your teacher.
“How to stop time: kiss.
How to travel in time: read.
How to escape time: music.
How to feel time: write.
How to release time: breathe.”

It’s okay to get lost sometimes. If you get anxious, stop and take a deep breath. You’ll see a camp fire in the distance. Follow it and you’ll be surprised what you find.
When you cross the river, get rid of the boat.
If you think you need all the information before you make a decision then you’ll never act. There are always more data points to analyze. It’s infinite. The trick is to be decisive in the face of incomplete information…and it’s always incomplete.
In the previous post I wrote about my neighbor and her beautiful garden. She’s always working on it. Her clippers are always in her right hand as she wanders through the garden. She’s a quick draw and will snip a dead shrub or feral branch in the blink of an eye. Her clippers are close at hand and she’s prepared.
Here’s lesson number two: Part of constant tweaking and improving is that you got to be prepared with the right tools. Make it easy to improve and tweak. Structure your day so that you have time to exercise, eat a good breakfast so you don’t snack on junk during the day, buy healthy food so that when you want to snack you have good food close by, set up filters on your email so that you give full attention to the right people.
Equip yourself with the right tools and it’s easier to improve day to day.
