Recently I cam across a video by Adam Duff on why the Art Game is not Fair, and it resonated with Me that sometimes I feel I am falling behind in my ‘Art’ or craft.
But he goes on to say that sometimes someone else success, we do not see the life he is living. Maybe he does not have any other commitments or stuff going on. Maybe he is single? Maybe that is why he could focus on his art.
I am sure there is other essays similar to this video and this post here.
I have restarted to do a bit of documentation on my CG Art projects and I want to bring CG BOSS to some level of realization. But Life does seem to hold me back. Not everything we dream or want to come out how we want it to be.
Maybe you are able to spend time on your craft maybe not.

What ever you do in Career or pursuits, is all about sustainability in both work and life, and having a sustainable career in Art and Life but it is applied to everywhere else.
