Creators often feel the desire to do more—to do bigger things, to be a little more ambitious, and take part in projects that get personal and are meaningful. Luckily, creativity is a renewable resource and the demand for it is almost always high (you’re in luck). What’s stopping you from feeding your metaphorical hunger for more?
On the flip side, if you let that drive starve, what happens?
We all have goals and ambitions, but they have to be fed so that they can actualize, grow, and be sustained.
How do you feed yours?
PS. I’ll be hosting a group portfolio campfire next Friday on the 22nd. If you’re interested send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll include you on the list. Hope to see you there.
The very fact that you’re reading this sentence means you’ve got a high-tech device in your hands, a decent internet connection that brings you access to the world, and a closed environment that’s relatively safe and comfortable.
Are we lucky?
There’s also a high chance that if you’re reading this, your parents are the ones who provided you the home you’re living in, the nice laptop you do your work on, or the phone where you get to keep connected with.
The reality is that we’re an incredibly fortunate cluster of people with a great sense of creativity, of which we get to keep and use whenever we feel like it.
Some will value creativity more than others, but your job is to use it liberally.
Any failing grades, friends lost, rainy days, missed deadlines, arguments, spilled food, sports team tryouts, awkward presentations, burnt egos, broken promises, injuries, accidents, mistakes, failures are a part of keeping it all intact.
We’re all capable of finding our way regardless of circumstance.
