As an artist, there invariably comes a point where the piece is not yet done—it needs something—but what if your idea ruins all your hard work? That moment is SO SCARY! What to do?

Giving into the fear leads to a warehouse full of UFOs: Un-Finished Objects.

The prolific creator—whether in art or business or anything else—learns to lean into the fear and TAKE THE RISKIER PATH.

(That’s Guidepost #7 of my book, The Creative Sandbox Way™.)

Yes, you may ruin it. But if that happens, you’ll learn something!

It may even lead you to something better!

Art and business both require risk-taking. Neither are for the faint of heart.

If you are unwilling to take risks, you won’t get very far, in either art or business—or life, for that matter.

Life is live. When you can lean INTO uncertainty, rather than running from it, you’re ready for anything.


Your turn: can you think of a time when you took the riskier path, even though it was scary? Are you glad you did?
