That being said, we do need certain structure in our lives if we are to succeed in our artistic endeavors. Are you a writer who has been working on a novel for ten years, a photographer with 5,000 photos in a box that need to be sorted or a painter with 100’s of paintings in the attic or basement? If so, your lack of discipline is your biggest enemy.
We need to set aside time to write, time to sort, time to expand our craft, time for networking, time for volunteering and time to market our works or you just may be the owner of the greatest novel never read, the best song never heard or the greatest painting never seen.
