As someone with an illustrious history of doing one crazy project after another, there seems to be this unspoken expectation to always have something new, epic, and exciting on the horizon.
But more often than not, I don’t have an answer when people ask me, “So, what’s next?”
Not knowing makes me deeply uncomfortable, to the point of even feeling ashamed, especially in the presence of industry movers and shakers.
But as my friends have pointed out over the last couple of days: there’s nothing wrong with not knowing my next move.
If anything, uncertainty and exploration are necessary ingredients for creativity and innovation. Leaning into that discomfort may just unlock the next big thing.
