Putting yourself in competition with others and seeking to elevate your station by advancing against those above and defending against those below is the work of the ego.It is unhealthy and undesirable, and may well lead to madness!If your success and happiness is constantly being re-evaluated in terms of your rank within an imaginary hierarchy of artists working in a similar medium to you, you’ll spend most of your time feeling miserable and inadequate.You’ll only ever be satisfied after a perceived ‘win’.var __BOOTSTRAP__ = {"article":{"id":"5788a5c58902ac0f00986d04","title":"These Four Technologies May Finally Put an End to Art Forgery","search_title":null,"social_title":null,"description":" Like method actors and bearded brewmasters, the best art forgers are obsessed with authenticity.

We tend to narrowly define ‘being a professional’ as being able to make a living at our craft.Deep in our psychology we have a hidden enemy, a devious little voice that tells us not to start or attempt anything because we’ll automatically fail or we’ve got better things to do.This little creep is usually the reason diets fail or books don’t get written.Checking Facebook 50 times a day, constantly making cups of coffee, even cleaning and rearranging your workspace obsessively are all tactics to avoid the real job; getting to work.And being honest, how much satisfaction do these things actually bring you?
