When you’re autonomous, you do anything by yourself. You do not copy or let others do it for you.

When you’re autonomous, you’ll fail, and fail again until you fail better (Samuel Beckett), but you’ll eventually succeed with your resilient mind, wholeheartedness, and bare hands.

When you’re autonomous, you do it for yourself, but you’re not by yourself. Our autonomy interrelated with other autonomies and the result of the uniqueness each perspective brings to any problem leads to truly creative work.
