“An essential aspect of creativity is not being afraid to fail.” – Edwin Land

I wrote in a recent ‘Wisdom with Wes’ column about sticking to a certain few creative outlets, because we don’t want to burn ourselves out or scatter ourselves trying to work hard at all of them.

We can make the few we pursue better if we stick with them, work hard and express plenty of patience, but like I said in the column, we can’t really develop ten different creative outlets. We can still enjoy the things we aren’t great at – we just don’t want to make them a priority.

I’ve reached a point in life where I’m asking myself what I really want to do; what I want to be known for. I’m not trying to be egotistical, but I want to decide, once and for all, what creative paths I want to stick with. I can pour myself into them once I know for sure, and I think writing, music and intuitively communicating are the best things for me to pursue.
