You can make what you think you should. Or you can make what you want to see exist in the world.
If you make what you think you should, you might succeed. But you might also lose sleep over it.
If you make what you want to see exist in the world, no matter what happens, you get something you want. It’s time well spent. It’s art the matters even if it only matters to you.
If what you’re creating doesn’t light your eyes up and set your heart on fire, it might be time to reconsider why you’re creating it.
A compass will continually test your commitment to what you want
If you knew somebody was going to curate a museum based on the life that you lived, and the art you made, what would you want to see exist in the world?
Start making that today and spend the rest of your life filling that museum.
