Artists create. Professional artists finish. 

Today’s Show Up! Journal free-write power words. 

I don’t buy that whole, “It’s the journey not the destination,” thing. I can relax and enjoy the ride a whole lot better if I’m not driving around in circles.

 Granted, I might see things from a different perspective each time on the circle, and I might learn something new, but if what I’m trying to do is achieve something? There comes a point where I have to decide between new perspectives and getting things done.

 As the excellent Seth Godin said (quoting someone else, I believe), “Real artists ship.” Or as I have said to numerous clients, “Artists create. Professional artists finish.”
