Be So Good

“Be so good they can’t ignore you.” -Steve Martin

If you haven’t read Steve Martin’s memoir “Born Standing Up: A Comic’s Life”, I highly, highly recommend it. It’s inspiring for any artist who cares deeply about their craft.

Though I might amend his above sentiment to “Be so good AND consistent AND persistent that they can’t ignore you.”

Or even better…

“Be so good, so consistent, so persistent AND self reliant that you don’t care if they ignore you.” You make your art no matter what.

Because you know the cavalry isn’t coming. You are the cavalry.
