How to feel Miserable as an Artist

  1. Constantly compare yourself to other artists.
  2. Talk to your family about what you do and expect them to cheer you on
  3. Base the success of your entire career on one project.
  4. Stick with what you know
  5. Undervalue your expertise
  6. Let money dictate what you do
  7. Bow to societal pressures
  8. Only make work that your family would love
  9. Do whatever the client/customer/gallery owner/patron/investor asks
  10. Set overwhelming, unachievable goals to accomplish by tomorrow
