#TGIIF: The only Instagram account to follow this Friday is @xtianmiller
"Obsession is a more extreme version of ambition" writes Xtian, an interdisciplinary designer in Detroit with a dream to impact & inspire people through creativity & design. "Without obsession, the well runs dry. You lose interest. You settle for mediocre. Obsession can give you the fuel to persevere through the times you’re feeling unmotivated or tired, and excel when you’re not. You know you’re obsessed about something when it keeps you up at night and you’re think about it at least 298 times a day. If you can’t obsess over what you’re currently working on, maybe it’s not for you.
Find something you can get obsessed about and you’ll naturally want to improve and become the best at it. It’s that simple. But don’t be a slave to your ambition—have some self-compassion. Understand that obsessions progress and evolve, and most will only pay off over a long period of time" notes Xtian in one of his insightful social media posts. We are obsessed with his Instagram account which is filled with typography and posters to keep us inspired.
