“There’s only so much you can learn in one place. The more that you wait, the more time that you waste.”

How do you make a decision when you’re indecisive?
Christmas Eve last year, I started a blog. I’d spent months brainstorming names, had my first post written, and a handful of ideas for a few more. So, I signed up to WordPress, published my thoughts, and duly froze.
I began this New Year in a similar fashion. I had a motley list of creative and developmental goals, and my dormant blog was to be my accountability tool. But I wasn’t sure I was jumping in the right direction, so my goals got pushed aside until I was ready to move on.
Three months later, I launched Filbert and Smudge. This time I had a clearer purpose for my writing, and fewer less-ambitious goals; just two in fact. Now I’ve reached the six-month marker for Filbert and Smudge, I’ve been pondering what I really want to accomplish as a “prolific creative”. This thought has surfaced as I reach Week 9 of the Colette Wardrobe Architect: The Capsule Wardrobe. The first eight challenges focused on the analysis of evidence. Facts. Easy. But now decisions need to be made, and I feel I’ve reached the same point on my creative path.
I think I’m ready to jump, but first I have to decide on the direction.
