There is a saying from Plutarch, “Where the lion’s skin will not reach, you must patch it out with the fox’s.” It is good advice: strength and courage may get you much of the way, but an ounce of cleverness is often necessary for success.
In light of this piece, allow me share a piece of my story.
I made some digital artworks over the last year now because like the fox, I felt I could make a couple of dollars (even if just $100. I can put that on my CV) from selling them as NFTs (the hype is on).
The lion's share of the next move is however now two decisions facing me :
1- Wait to get enough money to pump gas into them and then rocket off. Might take another year or 2.
2- Look for investors right now and perhaps get their funding. More risky but the experience of looking for investors might be equally fruitful.
Perhaps we also need dice once in a while. Roll the dice and live.
I rolled it and 1 was the best option.
The art will mature like fine wine. Hence bee sweeter.
Afterall, It too is courage to wait when everyone else is flying right past you.
