Hey! Welcome to another creative tip. I once had the privilege of hearing the author Anne Lamott speak. One of the things that she said is you can do brickwork as a laborer or as an artisan. The only difference is your point of view or your perspective. That's kind of fascinating, isn't it? They could both be on the same job site and get the same pay and have the same job, but that perspective is very distinct. It's very different. Now, who has the more difficult job? Well, probably the laborer, right? Because they toil and sweat and curse. On the other hand, the artisan toils and sweats and then smiles, because there is something about putting your heart and soul into what you are doing. At the end of the day, you can kick back and smile. That full hearted smile, gratification of a job well done.
Now, who actually works harder? Well, probably the artisan because they care more about what they do. They are putting their whole passion and soul into the project. So as we get more and more into retouching, here is my question for you. Are you going to retouch as a laborer, are you just going to knock it out, or are you going to retouch as an artisan?
