We don’t know if what we make will be any good. Whether or not it’s good is not the reason we begin. We begin because we must.
We practice because creativity is a practice. Showing up for yourself is a skill you must practice again and again and again, more than anything else you’ll ever do in your life. We don’t wake up with a new skill bestowed upon us in our dreams; we practice, practice, and practice more and each time, we carve out more ability in our hands, minds, and bodies.
