Arts Creativity Life & Philosophy Productivity & Work

The older we get…

  • The wiser we get. Dreams fade into practicality. Why shoot for the sex when we already have the cash?
  • The more focused we get. We lean in on our expertise. Why try harder on something we suck at?
  • The more talkative we get. Expression curbs self-consciousness. At this point, why does it matter what other people think?

The older we get, the more we accept who, what, and where we are in life. Rather than change, we endeavor to get better at what we can already control. With time running out, we have no choice but to chase our best self.

Many people die at twenty five and aren’t buried until they are seventy five.  

Benjamin Franklin

There’s still a lot of good work to be done.
