In the documentary Beautiful Losers, Aaron Rose made a statement that inspired me.

His quote is about editing, about removing things from your life that aren’t working. At the time I needed to make some severe edits to my life, and was having trouble with the process. I made this graphic to help me remember editing isn’t about loss. It’s about success.

Here is the film’s trailer. My graphic is below.

Animated GIF with long quote about editing out crap. With each frame, a few of the words disappear. On the final frame we're left with the word 'edit'.

Here are the individual frames in case you want to compare the images.
