Beware of the line: “If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again.”
When our best effort isn’t working, many of us get impatient and begin frantically trying more of the same, again and again, repeating what has worked in the past. All that does is compound the problem and leave us stifled in frustration. It also calls into question our unwillingness as creatives to rip the paper out of the typewriter and start over!
Important because it’s not about repeating the same’ol, same’ol. It’s about trusting our talent and mustering the confidence to step out of the box, swing for the fences, and create something different, something better, something worthy.
