Good advice for me for when I make time to get serious about this DJ'ing thing, which I shouldn't do until after I finish this accursed thesis thing. To which, now that I think of it, some of this also applies... hmmm.
  • Find a sanctuary where you can comfortably work.
  • Dedicate at least two hours a day to your art.
  • Have more than enough equipment and supplies.
  • Set short- and long-term goals and keep track of progress.
  • Think of your work as exercise, not championship play.
  • Explore series development and exhaust personal themes.
  • Work alone with the benefit of books and perhaps tapes.
  • Replace passive consumption with creative production.
  • Use your own intuition and master your technology.
  • Feel the joy of personal, self-generated sweat.
  • Fall in love with your own working processes.
  • Be forever on the lookout for the advent of style.
  • Try to be your own person and claim your rights.
  • Don't bother setting yourself up for rejection.
  • Don't swing too wildly and damage the well-being of others.
  • Don't jump into the ring until you're feeling fit.
