You know you’ve got a book in you. Or a painting. Or a song. Or some other kind of art. You know it’s in there, because you can feel it in there, kicking around in your soul.

I know the feeling–kind of antsy, kind of inspiration-y. But also a little self-doubt-y.

Because those feelings of inspiration are often quickly followed by that little voice. You know him–he tells you that you don’t have time right now, that it’s selfish to go off on your own to be creative, that this isn’t the right time, but maybe in a few months …

Yeah. Don’t listen to that voice. Don’t put off your desire to create. Do something.

Even if it’s just a little bit.

There is always a reason to take a pass on art. There’s never, ever enough time. You have to make the time. And if you make the time for art enough times, that’s when it starts to add up to something.

It’s not about starting and finishing an entire work in one month, one week, one day. It’s about giving it that 1 percent of effort that you can, over and over and over again.

So don’t listen to that little voice. Make room for the inspiration. Show up, and do something, even if it’s just a little bit. Believe me, it adds up, if you just give it the time.
