If I won the lottery today, I’d be investing a lot of it in learning.
Tools. Gear. Books. There are a ton of great premium ($$$) online courses I’d love to take. Companies, Colleges, individuals. Music, Design, Engineering, Film, you name it. If you had the cash, you could take Product Design from SCAD and music production courses from Berkeley, and an animation course from the School of Motion all at the same time.
Pretty amazing time we live in!
Of course, there are also plenty of things at our disposal that don’t require us to pay to play.
Khan Academy, EdX, not to mention the juggernaut of free resources: YouTube.
There’s great premium knowledge out there, but if you can’t (currently) swing that, there’s always another path, another way forward.
Practice is free, of course.
Some of the best minds have been forged by observation and figuring out how things work on their own. And figuring out how to get scrappy, and make do with what you have.
Finding a clever, underdog approach to creativity and success make for better stories anyway. Don’t let lack of resources stop you from building the life you want.
