I’ve gone with my gut, taken a lot of the thinking away, and been very lucky. As an artist, if you view what you do as product, you’ll never do anything true to yourself, never do anything you’re proud of. I’ve never thought, “My career should go in this direction.”
You should have the opportunity to be more than one person with different people - because you have that within you. If everyone knows you so well and can always get a hold of you, then you’re stuck to this thing that people think you are.
