This is my friend Nina Hans. We make art together.
Most people think I love hanging with her because she’s a Jew with nice legs. And while this may be true, the primary reason I enjoy Nina’s company is because she’s better than me.
Not a better designer, writer, or even a half-competent carnivore by any stretch of the imagination; but a better worker—i.e. Nina knows how to get sh*t done.
While I’m off taking breaks every few hours, watching Netflix marathons of Breaking Bad, The Walking Dead, and Grey’s Anatomy (don’t hate); she’s out running errands, making phone calls, and working her figurative balls off to make sure projects are successful. Nina’s ability to complete, deliver, and ship out projects puts my lackadaisical work ethic to shame.
If you want to be a better artist, businessman, technician, or student; seek the company of those who humble your work and encourage you to improve.
If you want to be wiser, healthier, or more organized; seek the guidance of those who understand (and practice) the importance of DAILY temperance, sacrifice, and devotion.
If you want to be a better friend, boyfriend, father, or son; seek the footsteps of those who inspire you to be more thoughtful in your relationships.
If you want to be better at anything, distance yourself from gossips, cynics, procrastinators and two-faced “friends.” Seek the fellowship of those who are everything you want to BE.
And one day—after years of learning, failing, and refining yourself—perhaps you will find that you’ve matured into a respectable human being: a passionate lil’ “Nina”
to inspire wandering souls (like me).
