"When was the last time you made something that someone wasn't paying you for,and looking over your shoulder to make sure you got it right?
When I ask creatives this question, the answer that comes back all too often is, "I can't remember."
It's so easy for creativity to become a means to a very practical end-earning a paycheck and pleasing your client or manager.
But that type of work only uses a small spectrum of your abilities.
To truly excel, you must also continue to create for the most important audience of all: yourself" -Todd Henry
