People email me — mostly young adults, but sometimes older people too — asking for advice. They want help with writing, music, other things.
Mostly, they’re trying to figure their life out. As if life were a puzzle to solve or some shit, a video game where if they just get to this level, they’ll have made it.
My advice is rather simple. If you want to do something, just do it. And do it for 15 minutes. If you can do 15 minutes, consistently, do it longer. Then you’re on to something.
