You know: you could start off a new year more worser than by paying heed to Anne Bogart's sage adjurations.
Many thanks to my colleague Megan Kate Ward for posting this on her blog and recalling me to what I’m up to. What we’re all up to.

A Word of Advice by Anne Bogart
Do Not assume that you have to have some prescribed conditions to do your best work.
DO NOT WAIT
Do Not wait for enough time or money to accomplish what you think you have in mind.
Work with what you have right now.
Work with the people around you right now.
Work with the architecture you see around you right now.
Do Not wait till you are sure that you know what you are doing.
Do Not wait for what you assume is the appropriate, stress-free environment in which to generate expression.
Do Not wait for maturity or insight or wisdom.
Do Not wait until you have enough technique.
What you do now, what you make of your present circumstances will determine the quality and scope of your future endeavors.
And at the same time, be patient.
