Neil Gaiman’s commencement speech should be compulsory watching for all.
Whenever I'm stuck on something. Whenever I'm feeling unmotivated. Whenever I'm down.
It's because I've forgot to look at the world through the eyes of an artist.
Make good art.
Make more good art.
"But I'm not good at art."
Your art is your art.
If I'm trying to figure something out, I write about it. 500 words in and the thoughts start to come together.
Writing is easy because of how accessible it is for everyone. If you're reading this, you can write something like this. It doesn't have to be public but putting your thoughts on paper will help connect the dots.
And if writing isn't your thing, art comes in many forms.
You can draw.
You can dance.
You can move.
You can cook.
You can code.
Anything which involves making something.
Ignoring your inner artist is going to war with yourself.
