practice makes perfect // be you


 sorry about the selective scanning my machine decided to provide. apparently it has an issue with gold ink.

moving along. happy friday! this week i decided to work on creating something that i'll save as a reminder.. to stop comparing.
i know many creative people struggle with this. there are just so many venues to compare yourselves to others these days. blogging ['they' receive more comments than me], twitter ['they' have more followers than me], etsy ['they' have more sales than me], even instagram ['they're' life is much more glamorous than mine]. but there's nothing you can do about it. no matter how great your are at what you do, there will most likely always be someone out there that is "better". so let's focus on you, and doing the best you can, improving whatever your skill is everyday. 
hopefully this serves as a pretty reminder in my office, to stop wasting my time comparing myself, it definitely doesn't get you anywhere and is a guaranteed motivation killer. 
have a fabulous weekend!

  1. Never compare yourself, i love what you do its unique.

    A recommendation, i read a lot, or follow people in twitter that know of creative business and tells you hows, because not only creative is what we need, we need to know about business. I got a seminary about that. I give you some webpages so you can read them.

    I been reading about social media and followers, this is what i can tell you. First you have to know what are you going to do with those fans. Its not about fans it about branding. If you want them to interact, you need to interact with them too, you have to answer all they tell you.

    Let me email you all those business that give tips.
    Ciao, love your work, never give up because if you work hard you get to that success. And will never compare because this world needs unique people.
