Just wanted to take a quick break from the punk rock stuff to say: surround yourself with innovators who challenge you to be better. Even if I'm the sort of person who likes to be constantly reinventing things, I can settle in my creativity sometimes, and I need like-minded people to push me to innovate.
Of course, being in a constant mindset of innovation is harder work, but it's rewarding if you can get there. It leads to those aha! moments, or those lean in and get excited moments that all creatives yearn for and dream about.
I don't know about you, but I love being pushed to innovate. It keeps me on my toes and forces me to think more meaningfully about the creative work I get to do. Challenge often facilities growth; encouragement typically grows great art. So what are you waiting for? Surround yourself with innovators and see what happens!
