Art and Fear

Just finished ready Art and Fear by David Bayles and Ted Orland. I love the conclusion which is 'in the end it all comes down to this: you have a choice (or more accurately a rolling tangle of choices) between giving your work your best shot and risking that it will not make you happy, or not giving it your best shot - an thereby guaranteeing that it will not make you happy. It becomes a choice between certainty and uncertainty. And curiously, uncertainty is the comforting choice'.
