Pro artists & treps know that objectives are not linear, and our ultimate destination is not a straight shot to the land of milk and honey. It’s mostly a long and winding road. Like California State Route 1, Pacific Coast Highway heading north to Big Sur. It’s a 60-mile stretch of switchback turns, dangerous cliffs, frequent landslides, unpredictable dead ends, blinding fog and multiple distractions along the way. It’s also one of the most beautiful drives on earth!
Rules for driving the road less traveled:
If you get distracted, re-focus your sights on the destination.
If you run into blinding fog, pull over and wait it out.
If you reach a dead end, turn around and find another way.
If you come to an unmarked crossroads, follow your intuition.
If you get stuck or lost, ask for guidance.
When you’re at wit’s end and out of options, create another option.
Important because like I said, from an artist/trep POV, the road less traveled is one of the most beautiful rides on earth!
