In the world of creative work, there are amateurs and then there are professionals.
Professionals show up every day. The amateurs wait for inspiration
Professionals act on their ambition — a primal and sacred fundament of our being.
Amateurs dwell on their ambition.

Addiction becomes the surrogate for our calling.
We are scared to face our true life’s task. We are consumed with our shadow career.
Deep down we know what we must do.
The life of a professional awaits us.
