You don’t have to produce miracles—you just have to produce. If you can resist the tug to impress everyone with a “big splash,” and instead pursue the audacious process of (courageously) expressing your art & commerce with exhausting truth and reckless honesty, you’ll end up with more loyal fans, more repeat customers and ultimately more career longevity and personal success.
“An artist is one who has faith in himself. He does not respond to the normal stimuli and is not out to impress everybody. He lives to express his art, and in so doing he enriches the world.” — Henry Miller
