    Just found this episode – very cool to see behind the curtain and find that the people I admire are struggling with the same things that I am.

    Keep going, great things can be accomplished in little steps.

    Thanks so much for having the courage to be authentic. I believe these thoughts and feelings are shared by many creative professionals but few are willing to be open about them.

    I read an article in January’s O magazine, by Martha Beck, that was along these same lines. One of my favorite quotes is as follows.

    In regards to goal setting she said this, “I’ve come to depend on adjectives because goals made of nouns and verbs are risky: They bring to mind “imagined situations”, as opposed to “imagined experiences”. The two are subtly but crucially different, and experiences, not situations, are always what we really want.”

    The truth of that statement hit me like a ton of bricks. It really caused me to step back and reevaluate myself and what I was spending my time doing.

    Keep the conversation going. I always to choose to believe that in life, the best is yet to come :) Below is the address to the article I quoted.


    Have a great weekend and thanks again for being willing to take a risk.

    I listened to the podcast from beginning to end. It did take me two trips to finish (on the way to work and on the way back home), but it was worth it. The two take aways for me were the following:

    1. “Taking the next step” – sometimes we look at a goal as an all or none proposition. I know when I do that, the goal seems so far away and unreachable. Your conversation was a good reminder to break down your goal into digestible intermediate chunks. Somewhere along the way we may end up refining our goal. And that’s the beauty of breaking down our goal into baby steps.

    2. “Some people work a 9 to 5 job to finance their passion for photography… and that’s perfectly valid.” Wow! That statement was big and really resonated with me. In all I’ve read, heard or watched, never had I heard this point of view validated. It was always, you’re either in or you’re out. All the media I’ve devoured points to how to transition to photography full time, not how to find a way to have your passion coexist with your “real world.” This was refreshing to hear.
