Honestly Look in the Mirror
I know, I know! Honestly doesn’t seem like a term that fits into my theme of rules for creative people, but it really does.
We need to honestly look in the mirror from time to time and ask ourselves are we honestly giving our best effort. I can tell you if we’re not, it more often than not will show in our final creation.
Have I honestly set aside time to write, paint, draw or whatever your passion is? Have I honestly set aside time to explore my creativity? Have I honestly put everything I have into a project? Have I honestly done the little things like cold call, look for new ways to promote myself, grown in my craft or shared my gift with others?
The next time you think to yourself all I need is a break. Look in the mirror and ask yourself if you’ve honestly done everything you could.
Rule #7 honestly practice and work at your craft.
