I find myself here, in the middle of busy and relaxation. In a coffee shop, Philz Coffee to be exact. It’s about nine am and the traffic of students is that of a purposeful stampede of young (and not-so-young peppered in) adults, some with vicious aim at what they want in life, and most –wound-up masses of walking uncertainty. But, there’s a comfort in knowing that there’s a current of hustle that’s undeniable. What is hustle?
Verb: Force (someone) to move hurriedly or unceremoniously in a specified direction: “they hustled him into the back of a car”.Noun: Busy movement and activity. (Source)
Time and Logic are Creativity’s school yard bullies.
Another universal (as I’ve witnessed among my hustling friends) truth: If you aren’t in a project collaborating with someone, you’re busy developing projects for yourself and others; You only get as much as you give. You may be asking yourself, “why is Tasi writing about this?”. It’s simple really, two reasons: 1. This is my love letter, so to speak, to those who are following their gut and paying heed to their curiosity and making a motion of it. When the only reason to fully stop the forward motion is to take an appreciative peek at the path they’ve blazed. and 2. Self-affirmation.
