think how true this was

The creative life is not linear. It’s not a straight line from point A to point B. It’s more like a loop, or a spiral, in which you keep coming back to a new starting point after every project. No matter how successful you get, no matter what level of achievement you reach, you will never really “arrive.” Other than death, there is no finish line or retirement for the creative person. Forget about the finish line. Do this loop. Then do another. Keep going.

From the ever brilliant Austin Kleon.
