“The quest for perfection can be exhilarating. Exhausting, but exhilarating.”
((The Steampunk Tarot, Moore and Fell))
Because you know a job worth doing is worth doing well, you apply your energy to perfecting the process, and thereby the results; working smart rather than hard is always a good idea but be sure to ask yourself,
“Where is the humanity?”
I am not saying we shouldn’t try to do our best – we certainly should – I am saying we must not allow a quest for perfection to remove our humanity from our creations. It is your art, make it your way – do not feel compelled to make smooth all the edges or dull the colors for mass appeal or comfort. A little discomfort is good for us – makes us think and feel in new ways.
Spring has arrived and while you are very busy creating, remember to include your heart and your passion in your work – no matter how messy it feels.
