The Tools Do not matter

 

If you have ever had this ideal of I need to have the best tools do what it is that I want to do. Well let me tell you there is nothing wrong with that at all. The main thing is that you shouldn’t be solely dependent upon them.

Because in the video I used a very basic marker that you may have been surprised that I used. The marker that I used was a crayola washable marker and the other that I used was a tombow brush pen. I wanted to show that the tools do not matter. The tools only matter to the person who is using them.

A real person would be able to make use of anything that they have. When someone has the capability of not making any excuse for not having the best tools they are well on their way. I for one fell into the trap of thinking having the best tools would help me get better. when in reality the only way that I would get better is with practicing.

Now there is nothing wrong with having the best tools money can buy I get that. Because some people want to start off with the best right away. Well for one you do not know how much time you are going to actually devote to what you are going to do. A lot of people fall into the trap of doing something because it feels good or its cool at the time.

So I want you to take this with you do not think any point in time that anything is going to happen overnight and or the tools will make you a better designer. Because none of that matters in the long run. What truly matters is the time that you are willing to put into your craft.
