We creatives will often get caught up in the day-to-day. Repetitive tasks, endless to-do lists, and lots of generally un-fun things. It’s easy to get caught up in the rut of a daily grind, and it’s no fun when you’re there.
Sometimes you just need to take a step back and see the bigger picture of what you’re creating. You’re not creating a daily set of work– you’re creating a life-time of significance.
Whether you know it or not, you’re creative work is important. What you are doing matters. It is making an impact somewhere with someone, and that is big.
So what if your next thing doesn’t get 1 Million views? Go create another thing. And another. And another.
As a creative, it’s hard to stay motivated, and I hope that today this post helps to kick you in the pants a little bit. Do your fellow creatives a favor, and share this image! Everybody needs a kick in the pants every now and again.

So don’t let the daily grind wear you down. Get the wind back in your sails by reminding yourself it’s not just about today– it’s about every day. Moving forward with what you’re passionate about. Pushing past creative blocks and doing the creative work you were built for.
