Perpetuating mediocrity is an inherently depressing process and drains more energy from the pool than it puts back in. #goodtogreat
"We’re in a really creative industry, and creative people aren’t necessarily content with just staying in the box. If you’re creative, you’re probably creative on multiple levels. Well, the problem with that is that every time you see something, you’re inspired. It could be a leaf on the street or it could be a movie or it could be a picture on Pinterest. That amount of input and you thinking- well, I could be doing this, I could be doing this… I could be. How’m I going to do it? I am not doing enough. I am not enough. I am lesser. Is pretty normal, but what is your focus? What is your pinpoint of your business? What makes you the happiest in your career? And a lot of times that will just pull it all into a manageable tunnel, versus a bunch of different caves and holes and places and mazes." - Vicky Howell as heard on CraftyPod 2.0: Crafty Celebrity and Internet Jealousy, with Vickie Howell.
