Completed work that exists in the world has been on a long journey.
The goal of being a creative professional is being able to finish good work quickly. The goal is to be prolific.
Not because we’re racing the clock or can’t appreciate the present moment, but because we aim to live at the edge of the imagination and the real.
The aim is to remove the barriers that exist between the imaginary and real output. To finish what we start in the form of work that is completed, filed and shipped with a catalog number. On the shelf for the audience to consider.
Removing these barriers requires that we become practiced enough to reduce the time delay between the intentions and the results. To flow through the process.
Like a musician in the act of performing something amazing, our work should be perceived as having come a long way to reach the audience.
Whatever you do, practice it by doing it again.
