I was listening to the Adam Carolla podcast yesterday on my drive to meet with a client and they were discussing the need for gravity in our lives. Not just in the physical sense – but in the metaphoric sense that we as entrepreneurs require resistance to push forward.

Without gravity, our muscle would atrophy and I believe the same can be said for photographers, models or any artists.

If you remove all struggle, all roadblocks, all complications or detours… our creativity and drive would atrophy until it no longer existed.

True artists thrive when gravity is pushing against them. That is when they have the opportunity to do their best work.
