@austinkleon on the tools you use

If you are just starting off and I tell you exactly how I work, right down to the brand of pen and notebook, I am, in a some small sense, robbing you of the experience of finding your own materials and your own way of working. – The tools matter and the tools don’t matter

Just because something works for me doesn’t mean it will work for you. You need to remember that everywhere you read about the tools that someone uses.

As I’ve been learning to draw better there is one YouTube Channel that consistently reminds us that if we’re happy with the effect we’re getting then it’s not wrong.

The same goes for your tools. If you’re getting things done with your productivity system, it’s fine.

If you’re shipping your client work on time, there is nothing wrong with your project management.

Only start looking for something new when you have a problem that you need to solve right now. Make a list of those problems first, then find something that solves the problems you have.

Have an awesome day
