'Do or Do Not. There is no Try.' Yoda
I have it posted in my studio. I helps me stay focused on whatever I am working on. It reminds me that if I really want to get better at anything I work on, I have to give 100%. I have to do more than try. I have to Do.
Doing has worked for me in the past. When I wanted to get past the learning curve with pastels I made the commitment to paint every day. It worked. Now I am facing a new medium. I have tried it in the past but never fully committed to it. I painted a few and put the oils away. I didn't work hard enough at Doing. I didn't make time to practice.
