When you start seeing nuances no one notices, you grow as an artist. Take the smallest of shadows. Shadows from a blade of grass, for example.
Caution sign at trailhead

Subtract at work.

Less is more.

Take only what you need, only what you can carry.

Everything else is non-essential.

Shed what distracts or complicates.

Subtract relationships, projects, promotions, and clients that keep the main things from being the main things.

Bring in some new habits – the hotshot, wannabe’s.

Do whatever it takes.

Get your CEO (of your life) involved if necessary.

And it will be necessary.

We know this.
