Why does this matter, when the argument about work smarter, not harder is so abundant and work the endless work hacks and outsourcing? The truth is, it’s your average day that dictates who you are and your success. It’s your average day that leads or puts you in a place so you’re ready for that big break or that slow grind to the top.
Take photos, even if no one is looking, even if they never see anyone else’s eyes but your own. I’ve come to the realisation that social media is the catalyst of something regretful, and that is the need for recognition. I want to break the habit of needing it, the need for approval, recognition and validation. I didn’t get into photography because I needed my ego stroked, I got into photography because I love the act of taking a photograph & printing it. When did that reason get replaced along the journey?
