Picture a traveller climbing a mountain trail. The path is steep and rocky, making the journey difficult. There is an easier path, but it is on the other side of a turbulent river. The traveller works hard to build a raft strong enough to make the crossing and, once on the other side, finds it difficult to leave the raft behind. They decide to carry it.
The path may now be easier, but the journey is no less difficult.
What burden are you carrying that is making your journey harder than it needs to be? What baggage is so dear that it warrants the constant chafe of effort? Is putting it down and leaving it behind truly harder?
Carry what must be carried. Put the rest down.
The path to a great headshot is easy. The journey depends on what you bring.
