Obviously, all these things, you look at what’s going on and you look at the state of affairs today, you see that some sounds and some producers are now playing on different platforms, maybe to bigger platforms, maybe to smaller platforms - everything’s always changing. And if you are somebody who focuses on what other people do too much, inevitably that might be your downfall.

In other words, if you’re creating art for maximum instant impact, you’re playing it wrong. You’ve got to create art that lasts for the long haul, that sounds as good three years from now as it does today, because that’s when much of the audience may finally hear it.

A short article about how there are more addictions now than in the past, and will be more in the future.

This is actually turning into a real problem. By “real problem” I mean measurably affecting the health and happiness of a significant number of people. It’s not as easy as “say no to drugs” when the tool you use to earn a living and communicate with loved ones doubles as a mind-paralyzing time-suck.

The first step to overcoming any addiction is to consciously admit you have a problem. The second step is to start keeping track of your indulgences. Every time you drink a cup or click a cow, you must jot down the fact that you did it. Accountability turns a well-worn mental path into a fork in the road, prompting you to ask yourself if it’s really worth it this time.

You can use WeHaveStandards to quickly make helpful printouts to keep track of daily addictions (or goals). My next step is adding social accountability features to the site, which I’m developing now with my favorite beta tester.
