It didnâ€™t take me long to notice that I do my best work when secluded from society. I concealed my being within my work. Seclusion became a way for me to be selfish and only think about what I want to think about. There are people who can produce top-tier work without having to box themselves in. However, Iâ€™ve come to the realization, that thatâ€™s not my path. Not that it served as any validation, but hearing/knowing Kanye West works under the same extremity — it made for relativity and actually gave me a sense of relief.
Thereâ€™s certain people that are genius. Their emotional and social IQ is like super high and they can get stuff done. And thatâ€™s just like an amazing combination. Because often, people who get amazing stuff done, have to cut off their emotional IQ.
Often times (actually right now), I have to cut off certain activities, wants, and people, from my day. This is so I can get done what I feel the need to get done. Iâ€™m not equipped to help or focus on anything else while I selfishly poke at a keyboard. Itâ€™s something Iâ€™ve felt guilt about, but I get a bulk of fulfillment from doing so. In the end, itâ€™s all worth it.

I deserve to do these numbers – Kanye West “Spaceship”
My thoughts talk to me 24/7. Sometimes it comes across as lost thought, then other times I get great ideas that I can run with. I filter my days to a precise cut. Iâ€™m likely not to go to my day job tomorrow, just to get creative energy out that I donâ€™t want to forfeit to money. With that being said, there are people that I dearly care about, but I was not blessed with the gift to handle both social and emotional IQ levels at once. Weâ€™ll talk soon, after brief seclusion.Â
