It’s going to be a short post today because today was basically the same daily art as yesterday. I began going through my new drawing routine but was interrupted by work stuff and had to take a while to sort that out. It ended up that I only got an hour and a half of art done today.
I’m constantly reminded of George Leonards book “Mastery: The Keys to Success and Long-term fulfillment”. In the book Leonard describes mastery as a long journey and points out that one has to be comfortable with constant practice over years. It’s hard doing work daily that your not happy with, but I have to trust in the daily practice and know that eventually all these plateaus and small peaks add up to lots of progress.
Sigh… I wish success was as easy as media sold it to us. A 60 second commercial showing the end of a long journey and the celebration of achievement is really nice but the reality is very different.
