I haven’t traveled too much outside my L.A. Bubble, but I got the chance to see Chicago, recently. Being in the Windy City, I gained a fresh perspective that L.A. is not the only place where people grind. The hustle and bustle is real everywhere. I was reminded about the difference between hard work and smart work. I wonder where I will end up in 5 or 10 years. Will I work hard all my life without much of a payoff or will I make smart decisions to avoid that. This Windy City shook my hear and I admit reminded me to ground myself in my craft.
