The B&E Podcast #047
“Coming of Age as an Artist w/ Sam Davidson”
SUMMARY OF THE PODCAST:
We have a great chat with musician Sam Davidson, aka Skim Milk, about the dreams and ideas we had as kids or teenagers about our art, and how those can change as we get older. Learning to embrace the change, let go of the past, and how it doesn’t compromise who we are or our passion is essential to longevity.
POINT #1: “LETTING GO IS NOT GIVING UP”
-We oftentimes needlessly hang onto old ideas of what our dream or success looks like, having no idea what that would actually mean. As we gain life experience, those dreams can and should shift and change. The important thing to remember is that it doesn’t mean you’re giving up on your dream, in fact, it can bring more meaning and joy into your art.
POINT #2: “FOLLOW THE JOY”
-Basing joy on something you achieve later is depriving you of being present to the joy you can feel today. When you follow your joy, it is something you can do right now and in every single moment of your life. Then it doesn’t matter what your future brings because you have already been living a dream.
POINT #3: “ASK THE WHY”
-Continuing to ask why you are doing what you are doing is an important thing to connect to. Beyond ideas of commercialism and success or not. If you weren’t ever going to become a celebrity or household name, would you still do what you’re doing?
