A MINDS RACE AGIANST TIME
A BURNING FLAME FLICKERS FOR ATTENTION
A HORSES PACE RUNNING WILD
PLAYS THE GAME HOPING FOR A MENTION
I've learned enough lessons since leaving the Dolls to understand how to get what I want by being honest and up front but also tactful, assertive, and smart. My newest lesson is to not sacrifice quality in order to get things done and have a finished product. It's no longer about doing --- it's about achieving! I've needed time to try new things and asses what it is I want in life and in my creative career, now that I know, its time to go get it!
My toughest character attribute I'm trying to overcome is being 'too nice'. By wanting to be perceived as easy to work with I make personal sacrifices to allow others to feel free and comfortable. My reasoning has always been to create synergy among all creatives in order to have the best working environment. But the consequence is usually that I get taken advantage of and my intention is forgotten. I don't ever like to feel the monster of an ego emerging but I also don't want to be a pushover -
People are willing to say whatever they feel they need to say in order to get what they want. Once they feel they have you they twist and manipulate in order to continually get what they want without paying respect or attention to my wants, wishes, or feelings. The confusing power struggle for control and credit is a fierce one. Everyone wants to be a hero. Instead of playing that game I'd rather create my own. i want a collaborative world that works together for the greater good of telling a story through art.
