How Will You Be Courageous Today?
Courage. It's probably not the first word you associate with creating. Yet it's one of the most vital components of a creative life.
We need courage to:
push our boundaries
let go of work that isn't serving us
step into the unknown because instinctively we know we must, though we can't substantiate the decision with logic
take action in the face of opposition, dissension or disapproval
experiment with a new medium, subject matter, genre
knock on the door that terrifies us
close the door and be alone
open the door and show the work
accept constructive criticism
refuse to be affected by non-constructive criticism
finish what we started
What act of courage does your creative life need now?
