Wisdom for Artists – Build Checkpoints for Yourself

Have a goal in mind—and I don't mean the be-all and end-all of goals. Set something for yourself to work toward that will force you into giving it your all and keep you on track—once you reach that point, it'll be time for you to set a new one. Continue doing this over and over and over again. Your potential is endless. Even the great masters of old and those alive today recognize that they will never reach complete mastery. There is always room to improve. Get used to it and learn to love the grind. There is so much enjoyment to gain from learning something new and pushing yourself to grow.
