The Importance of Creating Something and Pushing Yourself Forward

Stay creating, and stay happy.

I love art, drawing, painting, and writing … I keep doing it on a daily basis.

“Creativity is just connecting things. When you ask creative people how they did something, they feel a little guilty because they didn’t really do it, they just saw something. It seemed obvious to them after a while.” — Steve Jobs.

Push yourself forward.

You know something that can be useful for a number of people.

And there’s always going to be someone who is better than you at something.

It’s easy to get discouraged and think that you’ll never be as good as them.

And, the only way to find out if you have what it takes is to push yourself forward.

I am often asked what the importance is of creating something, whether it be a painting, a blog post, or a social media post.

While there are many different ways to answer this question, I think it all comes down to two main points.

It is to keep learning, to keep creating.

The first is that creating something is a way of pushing yourself forward.

It is a way of challenging yourself to do something that you may have never done before.

There’s always something new to learn.

Whether you’re just starting out or you’ve been at it for years, there’s always room for improvement.

But, more importantly, there’s always room for growth. And, if you’re not growing, you’re not living.

It’s important to push yourself forward and to always be creating something new.

It doesn’t matter what it is — art, music, writing — but you need to find the thing that you love doing and then push yourself to do it every single day.
