Here is something that may surprise you: So am I!
I’m still figuring out my precise mission, or calling, or purpose. I’m just not waiting until I have it all figured out before I start something. Long ago, I learned that if I can’t find the courage and discipline to start now, then I certainly won’t find it once my calling becomes clear. I’m beginning now, and figuring it out as I go. This is a process that I wouldn’t recommend to anyone who wants to be a doctor or a commercial pilot (I’m not looking for my surgeon to figure things out as she goes) But I would highly recommend it to anyone who wants to create art.
The hope in doing this, is that once you do finally figure out what you’re “supposed to do” (if you ever do), that when that time comes, you don’t have to start from scratch. You’ve already build a network, a body of work, a following. You already have experience and leverage for the journey ahead.
Waiting until we have it all figured out is just another excuse that the bum uses and the artist shuns. Be the artist. Start now.
