017: I don’t ever like what I create

“I don’t like what I create” is not an uncommon statement for artists to make.  There are many factors at play for why.  Do you like the process?  Or are you concerned about what others think?  In any case, sitting with this thought and asking yourself why you don’t like what you create can help you get to the roots of what kind of artist you really want to be.  More than anything, that is the point.  If you don’t like it, that is you telling yourself something isn’t right.  It’s you challenging you to move into the vision of the artist you want to be.  And that is totally exciting.

Take a listen.
