Ideas I like


“If you don’t have doubts you’re either kidding yourself or asleep. Doubts are the ants-in-the-pants of faith. They keep it alive and moving.” –Frederick Buechner, Wishful Thinking

“The folk singer’s job is to comfort the disturbed, and disturb the comfortable.” –Woody Guthrie

“No matter what your job, you’ll always find yourself in one of four stages: unconsciously incompetent, consciously incompetent, consciously competent, or unconsciously competent.” –Dave Fisher, my boss man

“If you find yourself asking yourself (and your friends), ‘Am I really a writer? Am I really an artist?’ chances are you are. The counterfeit innovator is wildly self-confident. The real one is scared to death.” –Steven Pressfield, The War of Art

    Hmmm, I hope that Boss Man’s quote was in the context him telling you how consciously competent you are.

    Oh and that last one, so good. I’m still pondering.

    These are good!

    I don’t agree with the last quote. What if you just enjoy creating things and are comfortable with that? You are self-confident. I don’t think it makes you less of an artist.
