Create, take a moment to appreciate, then move on and create some more.
Instead of creating, and then sitting there waiting for a trophy or pat on the back.
The trophy may or may not come.
And it will come whether or not you waste your time sitting around waiting for it.
Actually, it may be more likely to arrive if you back away and give your creative seeds some space to grow.
So, don’t let the energy you could be putting into your next great work be consumed by your desire for immediate validation.
