Most of us artists, entrepreneurs and crazy geniuses are endlessly tempted and repeatedly drawn to veer off the main highway and take a bumpy ride on the road less traveled. That’s because we are beholden to a relentless inner muse who’s only purpose is to inspire us with a tempting stream of alternative possibilities, encourage us to keep pushing the envelope, and convince us that over there is better than over here. Which can often be an exciting adventure for the short trip, but a costly detour for the long haul.

Important because there’s a fix: It’s okay to say “hell no” to the spontaneous, whimsical moods of our crazy muse.
