Success is not an option

In any creative endeavor, it’s possible to define success as the big win, the moment when your dreams match reality. Success is the end of imposter syndrome, stability and finally making it to the other side.

By this definition, it’s clear that success isn’t going to happen. It’s incompatible with the reason you do this work in the first place.

Sure, some projects are going to work. It’s quite likely your reputation will grow and more people will give you the benefit of the doubt.

But a success? Once and for all, through and through?

You can’t have that at the same time you’re the creative person you set out to be.
