Life is Too Short

with one comment

Good words from director and  author of Persepolis, Marjane Satrapi:

Life is too short and we cannot spoil it. I don’t have 300 years in front of me. So I just do the things that I really want to do at the moment because that’s the only way you will do them well. If you don’t believe in yourself, it won’t work.

My ideas usually come not at my desk writing but in the midst of living. -Anais Nin

Ideas come when you:

say yes more often.
get outside.
drink coffee.
are open to inspiration.
dream.
celebrate the ordinary.
love.
surround yourself with creatives.
are intentional.
live passionately.

Seen on Twitter yesterday:

“Partnering with the right person, you accomplish 4X. Partner with the wrong person, you accomplish 1/4X.”

So true.
