If other people are putting in 40-hour workweeks, and you’re putting in 100-hour workweeks, then, even if you’re doing the same thing, you will achieve in four months what it takes them a year to achieve.

If other people are putting in 100-hour workweeks, and you’re putting in 40-hour workweeks, then, if you’re doing the same thing, you can achieve in a year what it takes them four months to achieve.
G.K. Chesterton once wrote that there is “no such thing as an uninteresting subject, only an uninterested person,” and minimal music has opened me to the truth in that statement. If I know that beauty can be found in 468 fourths, then perhaps it can be found in other places as well—my disinterest more and more gives way to curiosity.
One of the strengths of minimalism, like chance and indeterminate music before it, is that it embraces new approaches to listening. Much new music (or New Music) suffers from a failure to promote a manner to reach it.
