Also, great thought from Robin Sloan on the Cloudwash video.
Note the tone of BERG’s case study: humble, direct, cautiously curious. Nothing produced by Silicon Valley sounds like that. Not anymore.— Robin Sloan (@robinsloan)February 26, 2014
In life, you will become known for doing what you do. That sounds obvious, but it’s profound. If you want to be known as someone who does a particular thing, then you must start doing that thing immediately. Don’t wait. There is no other way. It probably won’t make you money at first, but do it anyway. Work nights. Work weekends. Sleep less. Whatever you have to do. If you’re lucky enough to know what brings you bliss, then do that thing at once. If you do it well, and for long enough, the world will find ways to repay you.
