Monotony and routine have a bad rep amongst the youth, it’s frowned upon and nobody seems to like it. I was in the same thought group until I bumped on this quote which I now pasted on my studio door.
‘Be regular and orderly in your life so you can be violent and original in your work’ -Gustavo Flaubert
Having studied and interviewed multiple artists, entrepreneurs and businessmen for a while now, I realise the compound effect of daily routines, rituals and the impact of small seemingly insignificant habits practised over time.
Opt-out of the 4 Saturday’s a week mindset, unsubscribe the baked/stoned/sloshed group that you chill with so often, skip movie marathons, ditch lazy Sundays.
Design order and regularity in your life. If you don’t do it for yourself, someone else will. Bring your intensity, rigour and violence in the work that you are busy making happen.
I plead you, don’t waste your youth on things that don’t matter. Go, make some Galata.
