Whether your masterpiece is an identity you re-invent, a story you re-member, or a business / brand / book / craft you revolutionize, you will walk through a creative furnace 🔥🥵🔥 before coming out the other side. Death and rebirth go hand in hand 🤝.

If you're wild enough to devote yourself to building your masterpiece, here are 14 lessons on how to navigate your creative devotional, gracefully.
