“You have to really want it.”
Many of us take this statement to mean that we that if we just wish harder, we will wake up one day to a personal creative renaissance, a new, inspiring career or an impressive level of skill.
…but wishing is NOT the same thing as wanting.
We can’t expect anything to change if all we do is complain about our current circumstances and fantasize about a more creative occupation.
Wanting means working.
Most of us can actually do something in response to our occupational frustrations but we have to stop complaining, burning time in front of the TV, attempting to satisfy our creative hunger by buying stuff and obsessing over the “competition.”
It’s time to build something real and most of us already know where to start.
