On Risk vs. Reward

"I love taking those kinds of risks (in acting roles) that carry the possibility of tipping over into disaster."
--Actress Kate Blanchett, interviewed recently on Bravo about acting

Alas, this is the curse/opportunity of all creatives, be they actors, writers, designers, artists or what have you. Without pushing the envelope, venturing just ahead of the pack, trying to do something fresh and new that's really worth doing rather than waiting for others to test the waters, there's no growth, no creative stretching of one's muscles. And in the end, if you're not growing, you're moving in reverse.
