Keep Trying New Stuff
My hope: to keep trying new things up until my time is up.
These are taro plants growing on a farm in Colombia. If you’ve ever seen taro plants in the wild, these are abnormally gigantic. I love them because they make me feel like I’m in A Bug’s Life. 🐛 But on a totally different note, here’s a thought I keep coming back to lately.
Have you ever thought about this- so much creative talent goes untapped! How many of the world’s best directors will never make actually a movie because they never realized they had it in them? 💠 The best musicians in the world might not actually be the world’s best musicians. They’re just the best out of the ones who took the time to try and develop their skill.
Most people have untapped creative potential they don't realize is there. Most people will never end up discovering it.
The only way to find out what you've got is to explore. That’s not just going new places, but finding out things about yourself by trying stuff!
I don’t want my practice of exploration to end in adulthood. I don’t want to kid myself that it gets too late. I want to say yes to projects, collaborations, and invitations that take me way outside my comfort zone.
I’m sure that not everything will be amazing, but at least I won’t have to worry about taking any creative genius to the grave in secret.
