Losing your way
“The most dangerous thought that you can have as a creative person is to think that you know what you’re doing.” — Bret Victor
All I know is that I know nothing. Which the most frustrating and exhilarating part about creating. I have so much to learn and do, and with each new experience I become more capable in my crafts.
Unless I stop. Unless I stop because I think I’ve learned it all. Unless I stop because I think I’m the best, or good enough, or as better as I’ll ever be.
I think the moment we stop being open to learning, and acting on that with curiosity and enthusiasm is the moment we stop being creative.
There’s always another level, a new height of what it means to be creative.
That’s either going to excite you or make you feel exhausted and shriveled up like a grape.
Find something you never want to stop learning and improving yourself in.
Stay BOLD, Keep Pursuing,
