On Being A Creator
I've been sharing a lot of tips on the how and the why of becoming a creator, but I also want to remind you that you're worth it. You can become the creator that you want to be. Be proud of the work that you've put in so far. I also want to hold you accountable and make sure that you're taking steps towards becoming that best version of yourself as a creator.
Remember that you alone are responsible for improving. Nothing will happen automatically, and other people won't do it for you. If you want to grow, you'll have to take the reins.
Luckily, multiple studies have shown that creating is proven to increase happiness and overall physical and mental health. That alone is reason enough to devote your time to this. Tony Wagner, a senior research fellow at Harvard, says that creating and expressing ourselves gives us a sense of purpose.
He also notes that the longer you wait, the harder it can be to find that creative path.
Like many other tasks, one of the toughest parts of creating is starting. Once you get past that initial hurdle, it's much easier to settle into a routine and get things rolling.
So whatever plans you have for this weekend, make sure you set some time aside to create.
