Stick It Out OR Chart Another?

Is today another day of staying the course? Or is today a day for charting a new one?


When we're healthy we're doing one or the other. And there's a difference between waiting, listening, praying, gathering data and insight before the launch of a new course, and sinking into a quagmire of pity, frustration, disappointment or envy.


At our healthiest, creatives work the plan until the plan is either completed in the celebration of achievement or mourned in the loss of a tried and fought for dream. And yes, we may experience a bit of both in a given moment.


At our best, creatives chart new courses built on the wisdom of the previous adventure, strengths and weaknesses, wins and losses, insights and impressions. Sure we might make drastic changes and chart uncharted courses for the next season, after all, wise and risk-adorned men and women have been doing this for centuries, but we do it based on truth and purpose, not at the hands of a mob-induced pressure.


Q. Is it time for a new course? OR do you really just need to commit for another week, month or season?
