Toward the end of Tuesday's (September 14, 2010) episode of the radio show Q, the guest makes a really insightful statement. They had been talking to a blogger who takes photos of New York senior citizens with a high fashion sense called Advanced Style. Basically his message is don't rush things. Everyone is in a rush to be successful. "It takes time to really establish yourself and you don't need to be in a rush. Don't be afraid to take risks. Style and creativity advance with age."
So to all those artists out there who are like me and concerned that you haven't made it yet, this is some nice perspective. Take the time to find yourself. Don't worry about making it. Set the bar high but find a way to define success on your terms.
