The Artist, Not the Tool
A funny thing happened. I stopped paying so much attention to my tools.
When I started making music, I’d spend a lot of time researching which tools the greats used, and how they used them.
When I wrote my songs, I’d spend time researching the process other songwriters used to generate ideas, work out songs, and arrange them into final products.
When I began my business, I wanted to know the software other business owners used.
I wanted their productivity hacks. I wanted their tech stack.
When I began to write, I researched which app was the best writing app. I tried 10 apps but wrote for 2 minutes.
Here’s what I know: my job is to be the artist, not find the perfect tools. Sure, tools help, but it’s only the artistry that truly matters.
