Inspiration: Amateur, professional or master?

I ran across this quote a while back which I really loved:

“amateurs worry about equipment
professionals worry about money
masters worry about light
I just take pictures…”
Vernon Trent

I keep coming back to it and reflect on my where I am at.

I sometimes find myself thinking if only I had this lens or that I would be able to do what I want.  I have to remind myself to find a creative solution with what I have

Sometimes I find myself thinking about how much time and energy I put into something and how much return I will get from it wondering if it is worth it. Why not just enjoy the creative process?

Other times I find myself thinking of the light is no good here, or at this time I’m not going to take a photo now.

Really I should just take pictures.
