Today’s episode is a requested reading of a previously published post on Productive Flourishing, named “Your Art is For You”. So many creatives and change makers get stuck because they feel torn between the art they want to create and the art others want. And by art, I mean that special medicine that only you can create, which may not be fine art and painting, it could be something you do in the world besides that. You’ve got to start by making art for you first.
[0:58] How many of your half done projects are stuck at the same spot? Did they halt when you started thinking about how to sell or share them?
[2:30] Creative types don’t create because they want to make money, they create because they need to.
[3:45] Yes, you do want to make money from your art, but it has to come from you first — you have to be interested and enjoy it.
[4:30] Now go back to your half done projects and label them as “not for sale” or “just for me” and see what happens.
