- Let your art make the rounds. Don’t hide it.
- Don’t try to be everywhere. Pick a place and be consistent.
- Rules are recommendations. Feel free to break them, recast, and remix them.
- Rest when you’re underperforming. Don’t quit.
- The muse is nonexistent. Inspiration is bunk. Habit is a bicep curl for the brain.
I hope the above helps you push through CRAP (criticism, rejection assholes, pressure) like Meryl Streep once did. Bonus points for embracing the messy middle.
