You have no idea what you’re doing. If you did, you’d be an expert, not an artist.*
Make your art. Do the stuff that only you can do.**
If it matters to you then you must do it.
And if it goes wrong then you must do it again, with all you’ve learned to help you.
Rohit Bhargava caught my eye with his four mindsets for intersection thinking – ways for allowing different fields or domains or ideas or worlds to overlap. They may help you go deeper so you’re not simply repeating the same experiment or manoeuvre or behaviour.^
See the similarities instead of the differences: what went right?
Purposefully look away from your goal: what else is happening here?
Wander into the unfamiliar – is this something else happening here that may be worth pursuing for a while?
Be persuadable – can you pivot?
You gave it everything last time and it failed. You can give it all again, in a smarter way.
