DEAR PRUDENCE (read time :43)
This past year while “The Prudent” allowed themselves to be distracted by Facebook, Wolf Blitzer and Angry Birds, “The Committed” allowed themselves to be consumed with their art, engulfed in their work and overrun with too many creative ideas.
While The Prudent remained confused about the economy and anxious about the future, The Committed were at work growing their company, upgrading their websites and investing in exciting new ventures.
While The Prudent were hooked by the petty politics of the day, The Committed were making tough choices, confronting impossible decisions and taking big risks.
While The Prudent were complaining about how hard it is to make it, “especially in these tough times,” The Committed were designing new products, placing new songs, publishing new books and writing inspiring screenplays.
While The Prudent scratched their heads and wondered what to do next, The Committed were forming partnerships, making agreements, signing contracts and cashing checks…often BIG ones.
And while The Prudent pause (at the end of the year) to admire their prudent work, The Committed work to improve theirs.
However not to worry, there’s always next year.
