“Be true to yourself. Make each day a masterpiece. Help others. Drink deeply from good books. Make friendship a fine art. Build a shelter against a rainy day.”
— John Wooden
Sometimes being a creative is a frustrating process. It means outwardly basing your success on what you produce — or what others see you producing. Some when I’m not constantly whipping out new articles I feel stressed. I feel like I’m not doing anything.
But as I learn more about reporting, especially reporting enterprise pieces, I’m learning that each day contributes to the masterpieces that I’m always striving for. Each day wouldn’t produce a finish product, but if I live each day with the intention to create a finished product that work will pay off eventually. I just have to continue working toward that.
When I look at it that way, I can truly say that being creative isn’t all that bad after all.
