When you create 100 things, 1 or 2 of those things may be fantastic. About 10 to 20 of them would be mediocre, and the rest would probably end up being bad. And that’s okay because it’s all part of the process. To create those fantastic things, you must go through the bad and mediocre. Simply because one never knows which of those 1 or 2 things will be fantastic. It could be towards the beginning of the 100 things you create, or the end, or the middle. No one knows till you create a large body of work, and then introspect on it.

Take caution to not introspect too much, or too often, for that often results in discouragement.

The most important thing is practicing, being consistent with whatever you choose your art to be. Be it writing, exercising, painting, speaking, acting, teaching, anything you choose as an outlet of expression, be consistent for the long run, and you’re bound to get better.

It’s the secret of all masters. Consistent practice of the art blended with a deep desire to improve.
