    • Hi Ma,

      Yah, I liked that concept,too. I find it’s always helpful to boil down concepts into simple action words. Another concept/action word I read recently was “create vs consume.” As I work at my business, it’s very easy to get sucked into computer-land “consuming” stuff on social media sites rather than creating new art or creating the next real step to move forward. Consuming is ok when you need a break from working, but it’s easy to fritter away more time than you realize.

      I lurve you, Joana
