"I’m not a trained musician. All I’ve been able to figure out from all of this is, we’re only great as our ability to negotiate and take advantage of our limitations … I’ve decided my limitations are not only ok, but they’re an incredible opportunity to think about what it is I can do with what I have. And so I try to temper continually my technical growth in my instrument and my voice with what I know I have to give already - which is an open heart, a searching heart. So, as I’m trying to advance and use discipline to become a better technical musician and even create moments and periods of time in my life where I have the open time and space to practice and become better, I’m also trying to remember that it’s living life and feeling empathy and having hope and a mission that really makes the music meaningful."

Don’t think about making art, just get it done. Let everyone else decide if it’s good or bad, whether they love it or hate it. While they are deciding, make even more art. - Andy Warhol

You must be willing to be a bad artist

Remember that in order to recover as an artist, you must be willing to be a bad artist. Give yourself permission to be a beginner. By being willing to be a bad artist, you have a chance to be an artist, and perhaps, over time, a very good one.

When I make this point in teaching, I am met by instant, defensive hostility:
“But do you know how old I will be by the time I learn to really play the piano/act/paint/write a decent play?”

Yes … the same age you will be if you don’t.

It's Not Worth It - creatives must navigate commerce carefully

"Most artists and desig­ners I know would rat­her work all night than turn in a sub-standard job. It is a uni­ver­sal truth that all artists think they a frauds and char­la­tans, and live in con­stant fear of being expo­sed. We beli­eve by wor­king har­der than anyone else we can eva­ded detec­tion. The bean-counters rum­bled this cen­tu­ries ago and have been pro­fi­tably explo­i­ting this weak­ness ever since." — Linds Redding
