On my drive to Portland over the weekend, I listened to Seth Godin's book, Leap First, on Audible. Seth is a quote-master, I'd love to interview him. Most of his books stick with the theme of, 'stop waiting, start doing'. This particular quote stuck out to me so much that I bookmarked it immediately. He was talking about how people get so caught up in having the right tools to create that they use it as an excuse to not start creating.
His point: great books have been written on typewriters and legal pads. So, no matter what you're writing, the new MacBook [paintbrushes, guitar, whatever] isn't something you need, it's something you want.
Seth says, 'You do not need tools to make your art, you just need to care' ...Agreed!
