Gwyn – this is an amazing post and I can relate completely. I, too, am on a mission to change the world through my art/products. Frankly, I am at the point of figuring out what to do, next steps, etc. But I long for the day when I feel as though I’ve “made it.” Your post is inspiring to me, allowing me to see that I’m definitely not alone. Thank you for that. And I wholeheartedly agree/feel that you should do what you are passionate about. One life to live, make it one worth living.

engaged is a great word. a great way to look at things. I recognize that I have all sorts of anxiety wrapped up in being productive, in being in action. If I’m not productive and in action, I get stressed. But I don’t want to equate my self worth with a product. Life is a process. What I want out of life is to be engaged.

I’m fortunate (in a way) to have a good mind for list-making, number-crunching, and future-predicting in addition to my weirdo creative side. But even I look at some of the “tried and true” methods for laying a business foundation and want to go screaming into the wilderness, maybe to set up shop with some squirrels and pay in peanuts (ha!). I’ve been very fortunate, however, to find a little niche in the intertubes that’s dedicated to this very dichotomy. Thanks to you and all who write on it!

This is great. I think it’s great to note that when we feel even slightly jealous it is just a sign to tell us there is something in our life that is missing – it is something to strive for – to be inspired by! I also like the idea of visualizing the experience rather than the materiel gain – because the experience is really what we’re striving for anyways. Going to the source. Thanks!

I SO agree with you on this! I often find myself distracted by the things that I “want” to do (which are basically just time wasters and procrastination techniques – my boyfriend calls it “avoiding the muse”) when I should really be tackling my list of mini goals to reach the big goals! You’ve got to reprimand yourself sometimes – you’re the boss, after all!
