"Trust in yourself. Your perceptions are often far more accurate than you are willing to believe."
In my experience, your first instinct is probably more accurate than weeks of analysis. Most of us though don't trust our instincts. Our subconscious mind is constantly registering data from the world around us that the conscious mind does not even realize is there. And it is from a subconscious analysis of this data that our instincts arise. Do you trust yourself to make the right decisions in your art? Do you follow that gut reaction that you have or do you analyze the painting, the poem or the story to death?
