I was just reading a blog about how as artists we often bring the wrong self to a situation. There’s the artist, the editor, and the Agent. Often when we fail at something it’s because we brought the wrong “self” to the situation. You know, like bringing your really creative, artsy self to a business situation that calls for levelheadedness and being serious. Raise your hand if you’ve ever done anything like that!
I thought this was a good point about why it seems we can sometimes self-sabotage. It’s definitely true that as creative people we have to wear a lot of hats. Being a really good artist doesn’t necessarily make you a good business person and self promoter. Good thoughts to ponder blogworld.
