Creativity is hard work. Actually, work, life, everything is hard work.
For every 100 good ideas that you put up, you’ll be lucky to see one take root.
For every “yes” that you get, there’ll be dozens of “nos”.
And for every spark you ignite in others, there’ll be whole audiences of blank faces.
Remember, too, it all takes time.
Resistance to the resistance.
But your time will come.
If you hold tight.
Push through that last mile of indifference.
And generous too.
But most of all.
