When you begin each day looking at your boss in the mirror, you know that every decision has to be made by you. Every responsibility is optional, but not without consequence. Every outcome is determined by how hard you work. If you haven’t guessed it by now, I am my own boss and I feel very lucky and grateful for it.
Of course, working for myself isn’t always a walk in the park. It’s a lot of planning, organizing and strategizing how my time is spent. Occasionally, I’ll throw my hands up and admit defeat — then take a nap and let future Hieu worry about it. But, hey, we can’t all be perfect. And as Marilyn Monroe once said, “Imperfection is beauty.”
I start every morning the night before with a to-do list for the following day. I put stars next to anything that must be finished before the day’s end. And I give myself weekends to unwind and relax. You’re about to take a look at what typically happens in my daily life as a visual artist and content creator. To tell you the truth, I feel a bit lost and uncertain about the future, similar to anyone else my age. But I’m constantly trying to figure out what works best for me and I’m proud of where I am at 25.
