I use my commute to take mental inventory and set goals for things I want to get done that day. During the drive to work, I think about the day ahead - and I always listen to classical muisc. I find classical music engergizing, and it opens my mind.

"The California dream needs the perspective of outsiders like Mycoskie. It needs someone to spend his or her youth infatuated with the idea of the place, move out West, and then make a movie or write some music or sell a product that self-consciously, but not necessarily inauthentically, embodies that image and sends it out to other dreamers"
