The past couple of years I’ve been learning many different technologies starting with after effects, photoshop, web design, programming and circuitry. I do this not on purpose but by accident and wonder whether it’s a lack of focus.
However, I’m doing what I enjoy and all this learned knowledge seems to come in handy on whatever project I’m currently working on.
I ran into a quote by Steve Jobs that identified with this.
Ultimately it comes down to taste. It’s a matter of trying to expose yourself to the best things that humans have done. And then try to bring those things into what you are doing. Picasso had a saying: “Good artists copy. Great artists steal.”
