I've found that a risk for most creatives in when they start saying it will be easier when _______ .
From experience, I've found that it doesn't get easier when _______ .
Even though it is usually easier to sit around and day dream about a better creative world.
Have you ever heard the saying wherever you go, there you are? There's a reason why that's a saying. It's because it's spot on true.
To me, the creative professional's variation of that is no matter what your circumstances, you're still the same individual with same creative process. Which means, if your creative process is flawed now, then your creative process will be flawed later, and it doesn't help to blame your circumstances and pine for something different. The trick is to take ownership of your creative process in the present, so that it will become easier in the future.
This stands in contrast to projecting the difficulties you are encountering in the present onto other circumstances or other people. It may be harder to change yourself and your process than it is to expect other things to change, but the former perspective and practices promise the most reduction of stress and guarantees the creative processes and products you're dreaming about.
It's good to day dream for a while.
It's not good to day dream forever.
At some point, you have to put your ifs and buts into practice. And the best way to do that, is start with yourself.
