It's On You.
First, make sure you're paying the bills. Taking care of your family. Stand firm in your faith and retain the spirit of freedom that America offers.
Second, work toward your creative goal. Work hard. Work at a steady pace and work with focus. Then ship it ASAP. Ship it before you abandon your steadfast bill-pay. Ship it. And if they want what you got, work harder and offer more. If not, go back to the drawing board, tweak it, change it, set a new goal and work at it. Then ship it!
It's on you.
