I was feeling sorry for myself the other day.
I was looking at my friends photos taken at Surtex and the National Stationary show and feeling very sorry for myself that I wasn't there, participating. Oh poor forlorn me. Nobody likes
me, my art.
And just generally feeling like my art career is super slow going and lifeless.
So I said to myself, "Self, this is it. You are setting a goal. You are going to Surtex next year."
And then I immediately got scared because I'd set such a lofty goal. And my go to thought is always, I can't do it, I'm not good enough.
But, you know, what the hell. What do I have to lose?
So now I've plastered my goal up on the world wide web for all to see, which is more than setting it in stone, because people will know if I fall short. How embarrassing.
But I think very helpful nonetheless. For instance, the fear of embarrassment will motivate me and also, if you happen to be an agent or a creative director of a company who likes my art, you might just call me up and say, let's make this happen. That would be nice.
Anyway, here's to goals and living stagnant free.
