5 signs its time for a change
We all get in ruts that sap our creativity and motivation. Sometimes these ruts are just passing phases, or they’re a result of spending far too much time comparing yourself to other photographers’ highlight reels on Facebook. As Theodore Roosevelt said, “Comparison is the thief of joy.”
Sometimes these ruts are trying to tell us something, and they shouldn’t just be ignored, swept under the rug or hidden with a smile. A rut can turn into a pit if you’re not careful.
Different forms of ruts can indicate the need for different kinds of change. Sometimes it’s a small change like in your workflow or pricing structure. Other times it’s a big change that may affect your career on a larger
scale. The key is to identify what kind of rut you’re in so you can work backward from there to make a change.
