There’s a sticky note on the wall overlooking my desk. On it is written two questions.
Are you a cooperative component?
Or are you keeping yourself out of the game?
I don’t remember now where I heard these questions. Maybe during a TED Talk. Anyway, I keep the questions there to remind me of the role I play (or don’t play) in my creative endeavors. Depending on how I’m doing each day, the questions are either a pat on the back or a kick in the pants.
Wherever you are in your creative journey, I hope find the questions useful, too.
