Create Within Enough

How much is enough? Money isn't actually a thing, but it is part of our made up story. Deciding what type of story it is helps create the constraints necessary for creativity. If the answer to 'enough' is 'more', then you won't be able to read the story, as you will always be writing it. You will never get to the second draft. You will never fix the typos, and read it aloud to see if it sounds the way it does in your head. You will never let others read it, and see whether it connects to a smile, tear or wistful look. Know what is important to you. Know what that costs. Then build buffers and engines to free yourself to create within enough. Enough isn't settling. Chosen consciously, enough is empowering.
