Best Advice I Received About Making Creative Work

Best advice I received about making good creative work? 

Don’t try to be original. 

Don’t try to be perfect. 

The need to be original and perfect are top reasons why most creative people stop making work for the fun of it. 

Instead, learn how to imitate. 

Not plagiarize (that’s a different conversation), but imitate. 

See what works for other people, and apply it to yourself. 

Rinse and repeat the process.
