Working on Two Tracks15 Nov 2012
When we work in any field that combines art and commerce, we’re working on two tracks. (I picture them as railroad tracks running side-by-side.)Track #1, the Muse Track, represents our work in its most authentic, true-to-itself and true-to-our-own-heart expression.Track #2, the Commercial Track, represents the response our work gets in the marketplace.
How do we consolidate these two outlooks towards our work? Are they mutually compatible? Is there a solution to this dilemma?
