Excluding Sales Tax

We are created to create. It’s our nature to make, to beautify and to embellish the world around us with works of art, creative designs and innovations. But the path to realizing our creative potential isn’t always easy. As we set out to pursue vocations of music, filmmaking or dance, we may find ourselves facing deeply personal encounters with fear, perfectionism or comparison to others. 


In this short primer for pursuing the creative life, author Stephen Roach focuses on five distinct "creativity killers," fear, comparison, distraction, perfectionism, and religion. In each chapter, Stephen shares personal experiences with each of these and how we as artists can develop habits to overcome them.
