So you wanna be an artist/designer/writer?

Remember this:

The majority of what you create will be thrown away.

No one will ever see it.

All the sketches. All the wireframes. All the edits. All the drafts.

All the variations and iterations. Invisible. Recycled.

The world will seem to only care about the finished product.

But you can’t just sit down and crank out a finished product in one
sitting. So a lot of your energy will go towards things that end up
getting trashed on your way to something great.

You have to be ok with that.

You cannot get discouraged.

All that effort is feeding the incinerator that fuels the creation of something better.

And that burning has to be the thing that lights your fire.
