out on a limb

At some level, it might not workis at the heart of all important projects, of everything new and worth doing.

godin it might not work law

either a curse, something that you labor under, or it’s a blessing, a chance to fly and do work you never thought possible.

from Seth’s post out on a limb

I do my best work when I practice what I write about, and this time, I decided it was important to go as far out on a limb as I could. The Icarus Deception argues that we’re playing it too safe, hence my need to go outside my (and your) comfort zone.

It turns out that I don’t just write for you. I also write to remind myself of what I’m hoping to become as well. Hearing myself, months later, reading something I didn’t remember writing or reading, I shed a few tears. Yes, this is work worth doing. Yes, being out on a limb is exactly where I want to be.

audio excerpt from book

you are an artist, not your art.

if your art doesn’t work, you’ll be back tomorrow with more and better art.
