In my old age I’ve come round to thinking that the only thing that really has any significance is the degree to which something is or isn’t workable.
You want to have a long and happy marriage? Are you doing things that will make that work?
You want to win a D&AD Pencil? Are your current circumstances likely to make that work?
You want to go to sleep? How does what you’re doing make that work?
It’s as simple as that. Either you are doing what works for what you want to achieve or you aren’t.
If not, change your behaviour until you’re doing something that make your aim more workable.
I think that way happiness lies.
