thoughts
“...treasure what it means to do a day’s work. It’s our one and only chance to do
something productive today, and it’s certainly not available to someone merely
because he is the high bidder. A day’s work is your chance to do art, to create a
gif, to do something that matters. As your work gets better and your art becomes
more important, competition for your gifs will increase and you’ll discover that
you can be choosier about whom you give them to.”
SETH GODIN, LINCHPIN: Are you indispensible?
