Better to learn how to make things
for yourself and for your tastes
rather than become a "discerning" consumer, who just is always searching for the best brands and newest, most exclusive releases
Better to be making your own art, your own paintings, printing your own photographs, decorating with your own color palette, your own aesthetic, and your own fabrics, rather than following the influences.
If you make or design or create something and it is bad, then refine your own tastes, improve your own skills, production methods, and processes.
Once you have cleaned everything,
Decrease entropy. Increase time spent with people.
