Fail, fail, fail, fail, succeed

What I Really Like

My idea of fun is this: I like to be working on making a thing – it could be something I’m writing, or a piece of music I’m recording, or maybe something visual I’m trying to put together. During the day I work on it, and then, at night I do an attitude adjustment and look at it fresh, as if I’m seeing it for the first time.

There’s just something so satisfying about this process, it’s like you’re looking into your mind and being surprised at what you find in there. The nighttime examinations reveal surprising things. If you get yourself into a completely different state of mind than you were in when you made it, it’s flaws and strengths become glaringly obvious.

It’s just the coolest thing – like you’re revealing to yourself who you really are. Even if no one else ever sees or hears it, you’ve already gotten so much joy and amusement out of the whole experience – plus you’ve grown some in the process.

Try it – no one else has to know. It’ll be our little secret.
