You might be slightly confused or bewilderd by my title for this article. I don’t blame you, but, it’s very simple the message behind it. We might all think we can do ten thousand things at once, but in reality we can’t and just have to think of ourselves sometimes.
I wanted to write this as in our industry we try to do so much at once, almost as if we stop doing one thing, everything else will collapse. The ’empire’ will crumble. Let me tell you no it won’t. This means that sometimes just do what you can and not worry about trying to get everything sorted, by taking the weight of the world on your shoulders.
Relax. Breathe. Enjoy what you have achieved and stop stressing. We may be multi-taskers in the arts but we aren’t superhuman.. or an octopus.
