Are you familiar with Seth Godin? He’s amazing, and I love him for so many reasons – but what he’s most known for is the fact that he’s written a blog post every. single. day. for OVER 7 YEARS. Talk about commitment.
Seth speaks a lot about the importance of showing up. Not every blog post will be great, and that’s fine. But the more we practice showing up – with continuous discipline and no excuses – the better our chances are of creating something truly excellent. Something remarkable.
I draw a parallel to this in my art practice. I can’t count on a huge creative inspiration to happen every day in order to create work. The work must happen through discipline. Daily practice in anything will increase chances of success!
