Anxiety and Art

I had a moment this summer when I realized how my fear of what other people think affects everything I do.  I don't think I can begin to describe how every task I do is influenced by other people's expectations (or worse what I think they expect.)

Several weeks ago, I read Seth Godin's post called Anticipation vs. Anxiety.  It caused me to think again how much my teaching is affected by my fears of not reaching perfection.  I don't have time to experience failure in advance. 

I start back to school today, this is a good focus to have.
