Among my current reads right now is a book on advertising by Paul Arden entitled, “It’s not how good you are, it’s how good you want to be.”  It is a very short book with simple ideas on the creative process – simple, but extremely thought-provoking.

As I’ve mentioned before, I am a person who keeps my ideas very close to the vest.  If I haven’t followed through on an idea yet, I don’t want other people to do it before me.  I am learning this is something I need to let go of.  Honestly, that is a large reason why it took me so long to get involved with Pinterest.  The whole concept of the website is to share ideas and creativity – not an easy thing for me.

So in spite of that, I created a poster that I plan to print and hang in my house – to remind me that I need to let go and share.

I don’t particularly relish the thought of living off my reserves.  I’m like a child, learning to share.
