Ideas from the chapter “Honing your creative practice” from the book Manage Your Day-To-Day with Seth Godin.
- Lots and lots of people are creative when they feel like it, but you are only going to become a professional if you do it when you don’t feel like it. And that emotional waiver is why this is your work and not your hobby.
- Practice is a big part of being creative.
- Being creative means you have to sell your ideas. Selling is part of it because if you don’t sell it, there is no art.
- It’s much easier to whine and sabotage yourself and blame the client, the system, and the economy. This is what you hide from - the noise in your head that says you are not good enough, that says it is not perfect, that says it could have been better.
