There is the challenge of taking the easy path or to take the right path.
Unfortunately, when you try to develop new solutions, the easy and the right path are not always aligned.
And this is when a true artist defers from a person who just wants to do their job.
The artist is ready to spend the time and do the effort to walk the right path. But the other person will do the same old thing.
We always have a choice of what to do. If our job doesn’t give us the time to become the artists we truly desire, and we can’t find another job. We can become an artist in our free time and then use these new skills to shift the job and become the artists we deserve.
