So this site isn’t all about scratch videos and beats. Sometimes I feel its good to share some stuff that can help you with the way you approach scratching, or a bit about how I personally approach scratching and what I do in a broader sense.
With that in mind I saw this post by Leo Babauta and thought it was excellent and worth a share:
The real success
I might have a lot of readers now on Zen Habits, but I don’t feel that’s what makes me a success. I’ve been a success since Day 1, because even when I had zero readers, I was doing what I loved. Even when no one else would have called me a success (I really was a nobody then), I absolutely loved writing my posts, and though I don’t agree now with a lot of what I wrote back then (in 2007), I was happy.
Success isn’t about achieving something in the future, but about doing something right now that you love.
So doesn’t that mean I care about success? Well, sure, if you define success as whatever it is you care about, then of course you’re going to care about success. But then “success” really doesn’t have a meaning, does it? If it can mean anything, then it means nothing.
So forget about “success”, and just find joy, passion, love, awesome-ness right now, in this moment. *That* is a success you can achieve, without any self-help course, without any method. Just go out and do it.
This pretty much sums up how I feel about what I do here on Studio Scratches.
I love making videos and sharing them with you, I love writing posts and sharing knowledge. I love it when you email me and tell me you learnt something or have been encouraged or inspired. For me it is a moment by moment process.
So… Enjoy scratching! You are successful when you are enjoying the process. Everything I do on here I do in the hope that it empowers you to enjoy the process that much more.
Until next time…
Happy Scratching 😀
