Back to the drawing board, he said.

Back to the drawing board quote by Seth Godin

I wasn’t planning on posting today, nor making this graphic, but Seth has a way of writing the right stuff for me at the right time. This feeling, a mix of frustration, apprehension, when one must go back to the drawing board, can be overwhelming. I needed to read this. I created this shareable in More…

The Warrior and The Artist…

The Warrior and The Artist, a Steven Pressfield quote about starting over

The biggest challenge of this path we have chosen is, without a doubt, the weight of starting over. No matter how much you’ve learned, worked, or fought for it, if you do creative work, you will be starting over. And over, again. Hasn’t happened to you yet? Get ready.

On Quitting

Isn’t that right? There’s certainly wisdom in knowing when to quit (Seth Godin calls it “Trashing Early”), but have you ever quit doing something only to realize –or worse, go on with the sick feeling– you should have stuck to it? It’s a delicate matter. I have no easy answer for this one. But I More…
