Get inspired, grab a coffee and start working

When I feel like I don’t want to work on something, I prefer to skip a day and be fresh on the next one rather than forcing myself to work and putting out an inferior piece.

I don’t consider myself better than others. I try to learn and improve my skills one project at a time.
