As we celebrate our 10th Anniversary of the Wooster Collective website, we asked a group of artists who we showcased in the beginnings of the website the following question:
What’s the one thing that you learned in the last decade that you had wished someone had told you 10 years ago?
The following response comes from Skullphone:
Educations cost you money. Learn and move on.
Saying “Fuck Off” is Zen in the right situation
Success is Audacious even when wrong
Hard work driven by mass validation is unimaginative
Friends that do not say “I’m sorry” or “thank you” are not friends
We learn best the hard way, so don’t always solve their problems
Helping someone secretly feels so good. They’ll never know.
Prune for proper growth and let your gut do the cutting
You know yourself better than anyone else, don’t let anyone tell you otherwise
You give best when you give to yourself first
If you are too pure you will never fly, drive, or physically go anywhere
It’s all corrupt, so don’t worry about it.
The writing is usually on the wall.
Answer your wakeup calls
If you’re alive, things can always be worse
