…it’s an art contest. — Seth Godin, Linchpin: Are You Indispensable?
I had this quote taped to various walls and mirrors in my apartment until I no longer needed the reminders.
Toiling away for years on something doesn’t necessarily make the something better. There are no awards for “novel that took the longest to write” (replace the word “novel” with whatever your passion is).
It took me some time to accept this, to feel it in my bones, you know? But I do now, and it’s been so freeing and transformational.
Go create some art today (replace “art” with whatever it is that matters to you).
Agree or disagree?
