to constantly produce, have to produce, and be held accountable to produce, amazing work. no matter how successful or how far you have come. that's what it takes. even with goodwill. steve vai with all their amazing things he's done, would not be able to just open a blank site with a monthly subscription and yield good results with it.
every facet of everything you do is constantly being held accountable. whether you are aware of it or not.
and this applies with other things like the body too. even though i've taken all the steps, worked my ass off over the years, etc.
there is still a semblance of not just maintenance- but of constant revelation.
that's what it is. constant revelation in ones refinement and craft: that's what people respond to.
thus i must keep going.
to not expect things simply because you are you. one must chase success and full actualization of all endeavors in all things.
