No more yes. It's either HELL YEAH! or no.

I came across this Derek Shivers fella yesterday while I was reading a blog post written by Colleen Wainwright for the ASMP Strictly Business blog. It was a good read and if your interested you can check it out here.

Derek Shivers has this "Hell Yeah" philosophy that I really connected with as its one of the foundations (next to God of course) of my art practice and how I make money.

We've all been there right? I know I have,  you commit to a project and then something clicks inside you and you just wish you would have never said yes in the first place. Oops, that sucks!  I'm a woman of my word, but there has been moments where I do have to pull away from the project just because I cant get with it. Thankfully, I rarely get in situations like that anymore. 

I only work on projects that I absolutely believe in period. Its just not worth it otherwise. 

So lets re(commit) here as we move forward with the projects that we're working on:

When deciding whether to commit to something, if I feel anything less than, “Wow! That would be amazing! Absolutely! Hell yeah!” - then my answer is no.- Derek Shivers

Cheers to happier projects!!
