Look Both Ways
“Every once in a while – often when we least expect it – we encounter someone more courageous, someone who choose to strive for that which (to us) seemed unrealistically unattainable, even elusive. And we marvel. We swoon. We gape..
Luck has nothing to do with it. It is really all about the strenght of their imagination; it is about how they constructed the possibilities for their life..
.. Our abilities are limited only by our perceptions..
I recommend the following course of action.. DO what you LOVE, and don’t stop until you get what you LOVE. Work as hard as you can, imagine immensities, don’t compromise, and don’t waste time. Start now. Not 20 years from now, not two weeks from now, Now.”
Excerpts from the Look Both Ways (Illustrated essays on the intersection of life and design) book by Debbie Millman. The book has no images but it is designed. The layout is disconcerting and not always legible. It’s personal, and meant to be experience as such, personally.
So personally, the above words made a difference in my life.
