brief given : "What pain do you want in your life? What are you willing to struggle for? This is part of the
game of life. You can’t win if you don’t play, because if you want the benefits of something in
life, you have to want the costs. Happiness is a struggle. The positive outcome is the side effect
of handling the negative.
We tend to want things in our life, for example, we want to earn lots of money as a designer / we
want to be famous or known for our work. But how committed are we to the long hours, the
many aspects that you need to learn, the struggles, the repeated rejections, the travails, the pain
that come with this journey? What are YOU willing to struggle with to become an informed,
mindful creative practitioner? What are the frustrations that YOU are willing to put up with in
order to become the best in your creative area?"
Being genuinely creative means that you don’t know where you are going, even though you are responsible for shepherding the process.
