Caring is Brutal

Caring about your work can be brutal. Working diligently on a project, investing, paying attention to every single last detail. Pouring over your painting only to decide at the 11th hour that you need to repaint an important element. Proofreading your presentation for the 433rd time and STILL finding that errant punctuation mark. Being conscientious, caring about quality and doing an awesome job can be brutal…and you wouldn’t do it any other way.  And there’s the rub.
