Why I should try harder...

In thinking about my online businesses, blogging, photography, and a myriad of other things I don't do often enough, I came across this blog posting:

"They battle perfectionism and procrastination and just sit down and do the work. Artists and real writers do it everyday even if it's just one line or one stroke of the brush.

Don't fret if you're not where you want to be with your skills yet. That's not the hard part.
Fret when you don't want to practice those skills everyday. Fret when you invent stories to escape practicing."

If it's one thing I've learned during my "30 days, 30 photographs" challenge, it's just how hard it is to practice a craft daily. It's one thing to turn to a hobby every Sunday afternoon and practice it. It's a whole different dynamic to think about it on a daily basis. It really forces me to apply actively what I've studied so passively.
