random thought: love and happiness in your heart often shows up in your work and work ethic, equally so does the sadness and hurt… both are powerful catalysts for great art and just great work in general. i think there is some sort of connection between the risks we take with our personal life and the work we produce in our professional lives. almost like the more a person puts their heart out there to take a chance the more they are rewarded in their creative work.
i will always be harder on the people more important to me. why? because i expect more. if you want a person to succeed you can’t just constantly pat them on the bum.. they will become complacent and not work hard.
