Key Takeaways

“Be happy with how far you got, but not satisfied with where you are at!”

“Try to screw up on daily basis to move forward!”

  • Brett loves to travel, it gives him perspective about the world, so when he has a bad day and compares it to what other less fortunate people have to deal with, he is humbled.
  • Brett’s perspective shifted as he was getting older – in his 20s, he had a huge ego and he is wiser now. Losing the ego part was the best what could happen to him. It’s not about social likes and jobs, it’s always about improving your skills not caring about pleasing ‘the internet’. It’s about getting ideas out of your head.
  • Brett advises that art schools are great for networking … and being a nice person 🙂
  • Brett says that your style is always changing because you take in a lot of information so you always get better
