Life will always be a work in progress

I like stumbling upon street art that is in the process of being created. I think this one is an advertisement however I haven’t been back to see it now it is complete. It is just around the corner so I will probably take a look on the way home.

So many pieces of art seem to have always been there. Historical paintings in some of the worlds oldest and most stunning buildings. It is amazing to think these were once nothing but a concept in someones mind and someone decided to make it a reality. I think we all have a creative side to some degree however some people are just more talented, or at least have more motivated to put thoughts into action. From smaller street art creations to the wonders of the world, we can all choose to contribute if we want.

The problem is the majority of the world contributes to someone else’s artwork. Most of us are working for someone. The lucky few will be moderately happy in their daily roles, or simply content. However if I asked everyone I met walking down the busy streets of the CBD if their dream job was different to what they are currently doing, I would guess most would say yes. But a dream job is incredibly difficult to achieve. But it isn’t about getting there. It is about getting as close to it as possible.

The more ambitious our goals are means the chances of success are less likely. But it also means our personal development skyrockets. It is much better to aim for a dream job and get half way there than to set a very achievable goal and get 100% there. That’s what I believe anyway. The progress from failure is sometimes so much better than the illusion of success, and I have just decided this will be the inspiration for my next post.
