“The first taste is always with your eyes.”
Everything is contrived, from the glowing burger buns, fresh lettuce and tomatoes, to the juicy fresh meat. Video takes food advertising even further, making it come alive from its static state.
Table top advertising or food marketing is no different than any other product marketing: the illusion never matches with the reality of creating it. In…
Whether you’re stuck in a labyrinth or looping around the same racetrack, admitting you’re frustrated and lost is at least a starting point. The hard part is developing a plan to do something about it.
If you want to go pro in any profession, you’re going to have to practice your beliefs and take calculated risks to gauge their rigidity. Doing the work removes the cobwebs of uncertainty.
We suffer from the infinity of choice, to what type of books we’re interested in, all the way down to the format we want to read them in.
Amazon’s recommended book algorithms allay the frustration of making decisions by taking into account your past reads and what others have read to suggest what to consume next.
Algorithms (or recipes) therefore resolve two things: Indecision fatigue and…

Inspiration fuels aspiration. Without inspiration, we relax on our laurels and accept things the way they are.
There’s no lack of material for inspiration. It can found everywhere: on the Internet, in a book, from a role model, or in a chat with a loved one or a friend. But a surfeit of inspirationcan backfire. Seeking too much of it can descend into inaction and…
Work is the practice of gathering string. But it is the empty mind that weaves experience, knowledge, and ideas altogether.
The apple may have hit Newton’s head, but his insights into gravity were brewing all along.
There is no such thing as eureka, just the gradual harmonization of distilled moments that become apparent when we least expect them to.
We think to get rid of thoughts just…
The square lines represent a movement.
Sometimes lines appear infinite.
On different occasions, the lines blur.
Lines also run diagonally.
Lines can get squiggly.
Lines like to find the holes, blurring their objects.
All lines are nonetheless imaginary, even arbitrary, a simulation of code drawn in the head.

Leonardo da Vinci obsessed with water more than any of his multidisciplinary interests: architecture, science, painting, and sculpture.
For da Vinci, the current represented that perfect chaos that separated air from water. In his Book on Waters, he wrote:
> Nothing shares a surface with something and something shares a surface with nothingness. And the surface of…
With the right instructions, the unfamiliar becomes manageable.
We follow the recipe with the hope that the convoluted reality seeps away into the [froth](https://dailypost.wordpress.com/prompts/froth/).
Yet, had we followed our instincts we may not have gotten stuck in the first place.
If we don’t take Google Maps with a grain of salt, we will find ourselves submerged under water.

We all have an inkling for something, a dormant enthusiasm, waiting to erupt so we can pour our hearts into it.
But the wait is killer. Toiling in anonymity while practicing in mediocrity needs a special kind of patience.
The resistance can only win at our own capitulation. The work is all that matters. Self-promotion is a form of…
