The intuitive mind is a sacred gift, and the rational mind is it’s faithful servant. We have created a society that honors the servant but has forgotten the gift. ~ Einstein



This reminds me of the Shynola video they did a while back for Junior Senior. Apparently this was done f for Fox Italy by Punga an Animation stuio from Buenos Aires. More about the piece can be found here.

When the days where the resistance is strong and wakes up before you. It helps me to remember that I am working on a better tomorrow.

This isn’t new. But it hit the core of me. Found this article about Steve Jobs via John’s blog. Here is an excerpt about being yourself, as hard as you can. I find it true the thing that resonated the most with my generations creatives is that they believed in Steve’s way of doing things and the core way he thought about problems. It wasn’t looking at it from the outside in, it was about developing a core and pushing those ideas out into the fold.

“I hope the message that people really take, really internalize is that being yourself, as hard as you can, is the way to have important and lasting impact on our world. That might be in the context of technology. It might be in the context of technology, or the arts, or sports, or government, or social justice — or even in the context of your family and close friends.

It almost doesn’t matter. The thing that matters most is to figure out what’s important to you, what’s core to you, and do that. Be that. And do it as well as you possibly can, every single day.

“Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to….love what you do. Remembering that I’ll be dead soon is the most important tool I’ve ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything – all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure – these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart. Your time is limited. Don’t waste it living someone else’s life” ~Steve Jobs
