I ran into this article today, and it really spoke to me. It talks about doing what you do, day in and day out, whether you are in the mood or not.
One of the best lines in the article, to me, is “The notion that I do my work here, now, like this, even when I do not feel like it, is very important. Because lots and lots of people are creative when they feel like it, but you are only going to become a professional if you do it when you don’t feel like it. And that emotional waiver is why this is your work and not your hobby.” This quote was by Seth Godin, and is apparently in the book that they are talking about in the article.
I may have to check that book out. I will let you know how it is after I read it. For now, I guess I have to get to work!
