What I also do is look back once a year and write down highlights or milestones (big and tiny) to see the steps I have taken so far in the last year. It’s also a good way to see if the steps you took led you to achieve your goal and it motivates me because I realize (most of the times) I’ve done so much already.

The art of creating really is a meditation, I just never considered it as one. Especially when you simply create without worrying about the outcome.

Good enough FOR NOW, is how I look at it. There is always room for improvement, but perfection can be paralyzing. You can always get better, but finding yourself stuck in place while striving for perfection will never get you anywhere. I prefer keep moving to standing in place.
