You want to get better. You know you need to practice. You know it’s going to require hard work.

But you just can’t seem to find the time.

It feels like getting to practice hand lettering would be a luxury. Your life is busy! You have lots of things going on. It seems like you’re doing things non-stop all day and there’s barely even a chance to read this post, let alone actually practice.

But think about that for a moment. You’re making time to read this post. What’s going on here?

This past week, I had some really good conversations. It’s amazing what a little perspective can do for you when you make time to connect with people and really listen. It’s so easy to get trapped in the reverberation of our own thoughts.

I won’t detail each conversation individually, but I will pull out some of the principles and things that stuck with me this week.
