What if all this hard work doesn’t pay off?
What if they don’t like the new song?
What if everything goes away?
All possible. And all possibly likely.
But the future hasn’t happened yet. Worrying about future events may have been convenient when there was a single predator in the grass and ten people in our camp.
It serves little purpose, especially in creative pursuits. The world is too complex. There are too many threats to count and too many followers to track.
Worrying is a waste of time.
It gets in the way of finding flow. It’s a distraction. And an excuse to do poor work. It’s much safer to worry than to make something.
Plant seeds for the future and watch them grow.
Do something you appreciate now and go from there.
