I’m talking to the artist with a vision. I’m talking to the person who wants to make change.
You have to do something. Whatever it is you want.. Whatever your goal is.. Whatever idea you want to get across.. You have to do work. You have to execute. You have to spend time - likely a considerable amount of time.
I would like to save you some time now and say that if you aren’t willing to do “it” for two years, then don’t even bother.
Maybe you are willing to commit two years of your life to this work, but will you feel good doing it? Don’t lock in two years of your life if the work makes you miserable.
If it isn’t a hell yes, then it’s a hell no.
Anyone can write a song. Anyone can pick up a new instrument. Anyone can start a blog. But what we need… What we really need are people who are willing to give the best of themselves to a work they genuinely care about for the long haul.
If you don’t care, I know. You know too. We can smell it.
Don’t be generic. Show me what it is you love. Show me your depth. GO FULL NERD. Then I will follow.
Maybe you are giving the best of yourself to a work that you genuinely care about for the long haul. But are you releasing? Are you sharing your work?
There will be no change if there is no release. I can’t be blessed by your art if you don’t share it with me. I freakin’ want to be blessed. Why do you hate me being blessed??!!!!! Ehemm. I digress..
Fear. Insecurity. Comparison. — All pretty bad creative collaborators.
Maybe you are doing it for you. That’s fine. Then why did you read this far?
There is such a unique depth and perspective that only you can deliver. Somewhere there is an audience that wants it. That needs it. Are you looking?
