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!!
