Here’s a scenario I often see:
You have a creative project that you’ve been ‘sitting on’. The project may be writing a book, creating a business out of a cool idea, travelling to a place that particularly draws you, going back to school to study something you love, or learning a creative art form. You love the idea of the lifestyle you imagine you’re able to have once you have embarked on this project. But you think you need to achieve certain financial goals before you can afford to do it. Years go by while you tell yourself that you need to wait until you have more money, saved enough money, win the lottery… and instead of moving closer to actualisation, the project increasingly becomes a mere fantasy.
