Start where you are

Start where you are. Use what you have. Do what you can ~ Arthur Ashe


I do not know of any other attitude that can get an individual further than this one. It has minimalism at its root and that is what matters. Creatives are people usually pushed to the corner, sometimes with their backs to the wall. They might have to sing an audition in torn clothes or dance the dance when asked to while their toes stick out. That’s what makes them great. Dostoevsky wrote when deep in debt.

We all wait for the latest gadgetry, or the new thing or gear that will spark us further. No. Time is of essence while your energies, motivations and will to work ebbs away. So start where you are, with what you have, doing what you do best. ~ Self
