People tell me all the time the reasons why they are NOT successful, what they are lacking (time, money, support) and why they can’t do what it takes to move themselves to the creative career places they want to be. They seem to get stuck in a rut about what they THINK they KNOW about being successful.
Sometimes you have to suspend what you think you know to move forward. Sometimes you have to give yourself a space where YES can exist long enough to break through all the NOs we are accustomed to living with. Sometimes you have to let what you know, go.
I ran across this great piece with tons of tips for doing just that. It’s geared toward business teams, but can easily be adapted to smaller creative endeavors. Give YES a whirl and see where it takes you.
