Energy for what?

We sell ourselves short when we argue that there’s something magical about creative work, something that can only happen if we’re born to do it.*
(Seth Godin)

Energy produces talent.  Energy to keep going, wrapping hours of practice around some passionate curiosity.  There’s nothing magical about it, but it can be the closest thing to alchemy you can know, the thing that will only exist if you make it so.

There’ll always be energy to do this, if you want it.

(*From Seth Godin’s blog: Born to paint?)
