Maze-ing Maze 204
Maze 204: I chose todays quote because of all the feedback from my family, friends and comments here. After being disappointed by getting rejected from the festival I shared with many people the situation and everyone basically said who cares your art is good and you don’t need the show. For awhile there I was angry because people were calling a goal that I set for myself stupid.
After sleeping on the feedback I realize that everyone was right about it and to not let it slow me down. Which I have to admit had an effect on todays maze. By setting that I goal I set myself up for failure because I have no control over who they pick. Short of applying to the festival I had no way of making them choose me.
So moving forward I have to make sure that the goals I set I can control what happens or at least acknowledge that I don’t have control and prepare accordingly. I also need to have more coals in the fire so rejection doesn’t slow me down.
Part 2: I had to add this because of my wonderful afternoon. A friend of mine works for a company that just moved. They liked my work and wanted to let me showcase my work. So after an hour-long meeting they commissioned me to redo a logo, bought a piece, and let me go wild with space for 11 of my works that I can sell. So the afternoon turned out great.
