Mental Illness in the Web Industry
> The picture of the tortured artist has endured for centuries: creative geniuses who struggle with their metaphorical demons and don't relate to life the same way as most people. Today, we know some of this can be attributed to mental illness: depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, and many others.

“Build an audience? Bah. I’m a nobody.”
> “We all know we need to build an audience. Out-teach the competition. Collect those fans and emails before I even have something to sell, so when I do have something to sell, the money will come rolling in. Enough already. I haven’t accomplished anything. No one cares what I have to say. I can’t build an audience with this track record. And I’m a terrible teacher.”

How to Write a Book
> Don't write a book. Even better, stop thinking about writing a book. Your endless internal debate and self-conjured guilt about that book you haven't written yet is a sensational waste of your time. My guess is if you took all the time that you've spent considering writing a book and translated that into actual writing time, you'd be a quarter of your way into writing that book you're not writing.

On Pruning Your Passions
> So, I’m committing to saying “No” to myself more often. When I’m looking for a small app or tool and can’t find just the right thing, I’m going to say “No” to building my own, instead of making the best option work. When NaNoWriMo rolls around next year, I’m not going to cause myself anxiety over the “Will I? Won’t I?” leading up, and I’m going to admit that it just doesn’t work for me. When I end my work day, I’m going to leave the web development at work.
