clever is what clever wants

I have such a difficult time these days figuring out which of those are and which are not.

Three things I must continue doing to get on the "right track" to "success:"
1/ Eat food. Not too much of it. Mostly vegetables.
2/ Stop thinking retrospectively. Stop looking at retrospective subject material.
3/ Sleep at least 8 hours a night.

I have the sudden sensation of isolation. I feel that I don't properly exist. I've been fretting about a handful of small things and one of them is that I do not properly exist. I think this may be in part because I lack a "signature" in the things I do and create.
Adrian says that the best designs are ones that are successful in communication. The ones that get the message across that you mean to say. Through graphics, video, image, whatever. Even though some things look cool, if they do not mean what you mean for them to mean, the are bad.

This is an interesting way of looking at things. Like when I first learned how to "critically review" a work of literature in high school. I'm rethinking a lot of ways I communicate, or don't communicate. Mostly, I just don't.
