When will you be ready?

When will you be ready?

When you think of starting something new, sharing your work, putting your art out there, it can be tempting to wait.

Wait until you know more.

Wait until you're not a student anymore.

Wait until your work is better than the rest (who decides this?/who are you comparing to?).

Wait until you've got more skill.

Wait until you're ready.

When will that be?

It's a trick question. Because if the answer is 'I'm ready now', you've waited too long. And because the real answer is, you'll never be ready.

It's counter-intuitive but the best time to start is when you're unsure. When the path ahead isn't clear. Remind yourself, a known future is already the past.

Sometimes you have to let out a 'what the hell' and start marching towards the unknown horizon.
