Note to Self

Social media is optimized to extract nervous energy from you, not productive output.

Likes and follows are vanity metrics myopic people use to guage their inflated sense of relevance and importance. The only number that will prevail over time are the dedicated hours you've poured into your craft, with love.

In a world that fetishizes "more", cultivate a minimalistic mindset that discards the extraneous–all the things that distract your attention and focus from delving deep, because a life of depth is a self-actualized one.

 Withdraw from the mindless buzz, and continue to refine your inner world in solitude.

Your legacy will be remembered by all the meaningful work you've left behind that nourish and enrich the soul, so learn to say "no" to all the things that, in the end, don't matter.
