Productivity rewards output but rarely celebrates it.
If you’re in the business of making stuff, all you’re thinking about is making the next one.
If you ever stop working or slow down the good stuff fades away. If you don’t use up creativity, you lose it.
Creativity is the constant a process of working, refining, and then shipping to obviate any feelings of regret. It loops until you get bored or burn out.
The key to keeping your creative process fresh is taking on new challenges. The act of doing isn’t enough.
