I wish the earlier me understood work and practice more. Just the repeated concerted effort to get better at things. I wish I didn’t have the notions of talent and genius I had back then. I thought, “Oh, these other people, they just have something that I don’t have.” When really, they are just people who work more.

I wish I understood work. Work is the key to anything you want to do. If you want to play the guitar—anybody can learn to play the fucking guitar—you can be good at it. Maybe you won’t get to be a genius but you could be good.

You can be good enough to write good songs or make a good film or whatever. There’s no such thing as not having enough talent to get to that level. I mean, persistence is talent, really. Just sticking with it. Talent is not stopping.

Filmmaker Kirby Ferguson adds to our ongoing archive of sage advice with these words of wisdom to his younger self

Or, as a wise woman put it, 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.”

Take time to sit, quiet your mind and open your heart, and then ask… What could your heart’s most beautiful dedication be?
Poet Mary Oliver asks it like this… What do you plan to do with this one wild and precious life?
May it be something beautiful.
— Jack Kornfield (via meditationsinwonderland)

Walt Disney’s Fantasia (1940)

In 1939, Bela Lugosi spent the day at the Disney Studios, posing for animators and being filmed as live-action reference, posing for the devilish Chernabog in the “Night on Bald Mountain” segment of the film Fantasia. Ultimately, it was not Lugosi’s likeness that appeared in the character, as animator Bill Tytla was not satisfied with the footage and shot other reference materials.

Rejoicing in ordinary things is not sentimental or trite. It actually takes guts. Each time we drop our complaints and allow everyday good fortune to inspire us, we enter the warrior’s world.
