I have seen too many designers who work so hard at the expenses of losing quality of life, marriage failure and when they got older, wonder why they did that for. I wish I could start my life all over again so I know what to do best, but it is not too late for younger people - Mike
"A workshop that everyone should take! I have learned more in this 2 days with Mike Lin in Wellington than I have learned anywhere else both in drawing and life." Teina Purdie, Wellington, New Zealand

Hand graphic workshops
Quit your job or hold for one year and travel around the world.
Spend more time with your immediate family.
Do more exercises to keep your health up, you don't want to die rich.
Find chance to have a cup of coffee with your enemies so they will become friends.
Go to places you want to go, don't just dream about it.
If you hate your job, you should quit and find one you will enjoy daily.
If you are single, don't try hard to find a perfect one because there aren't any. Just follow you heart and get one quickly. Most successful marriage is to play "Loose".
If you don't like your boss, ask if he or she will work for you as you will start a firm.
Don't kill yourself for your boss as when you need their help, they will say "sorry".
The higher you climb, the easier people can see your ass, so keep low and humble.
To be better in hand graphics, you should ruin as many sketches as possible. Remember you only screw up a drawing but not your life.
Say thanks to your teachers, bosses, parents and friends who have helped you.
