Remember in Alice in Wonderland when Alice comes upon a fork in the road and inquires of the Cheshire Cat "Which way?" The cat asks Alice where she wants to go. But, since she is lost in a land strange to her, she is clueless. "Then it really doesn't matter," replies the cat as he disappears from sight, leaving behind only his smile.
You have to separate goals from strategies. If you focus on your goals, and get them dialed in to your satisfaction, then the *plan* -- the strategy -- to get there becomes relatively easy.
Do you want to make a right hand turn (personally I'm on career/lifestyle change number four, but I'm easily bored), do you want to expand by doing more of the same with a broader distribution, or do you think your growth will come by trying new media?
And then remember that many of life's great changes result from serendipity -- the accidental artist is probably the rule, not the exception.
