When was the last time you mattered?

Just asking. Because it’s way too easy to spend your day dealing with the demands on your time that come from the merry-go-round that is a workday. Architecture in practice often seems void of creative opportunity, but overloaded on demands to accomplish the impossible (and document it all). Some days, it’s all you can do to deal with the immediate. Look at your life right now from a view of 20,000 feet. Are you moving in a direction, or spinning in circles? Are you doing what you always dreamed you would or did you take a detour and not even notice?

Is your life’s work truly relevant or just a string of jobs? You are not a commodity. Have ideas and make buildings. Find your passion and get going on the work that matters to you.
