If we let it, our job is a great place to hide.

Meetings, lists, projects.

Managerial stuff.

Makes us too busy for our art.

The work that matters. The work we leave undone.

(pause and think about that, then read on)

Hire someone great at managing things needing managed.

Become reacquainted with your highest form of contribution.

That’s your art.

Transform yourself into the artist you were born to be.

Better late than never.

The hurdle is this: completing the first step, which is recognizing in yourself what you were made to be.

On April Fool’s Day 2009, jeff noel began writing five daily, differently-themed blogs (on five different sites). It was to be a 100-day self-imposed “writer’s bootcamp”, in preparation for writing his first book. He hasn’t missed a single day since.
