If you want to be something, do it.
If you want to be a writer, read and write a lot.
If you want to be a designer, read, write, and design a lot.
If you want be a courtesan, read, develop your fancy dress collection, and work on your media presence a lot.
If you’re not doing everything in your power to hone your craft all day, every day, then maybe rethink what you want to be or how far you want to go with it. Only a handful of people get far in life without hustling constantly, and neither you nor I are one of them.
