What is the correct way to draw a picture? What is the correct way to compose music? What is the correct way to design a website? What is the correct way to live?
Sometimes you may be stuck not knowing how to do something the right way. In this case go and learn everything you can about the field you are working in. Read a pile of books, surf the internet, watch videos and take courses. Then talk to masters who seem to know how to do something right, ask them how they do it. Now when you learned everything about the creative field, go and try. What you will probably find is that most knowledge you gained is not relevant. And this will make you realize:
There is more than one way.
There are millions of ways to draw a picture, write music, design... and there are certainly the infinite amount of ways to live. It turns out nobody knows how to do stuff.
They just try — and it works. For them, not for you. Of course, learning is necessary. Education is one of the engines of the rocket of progress. However, don't carry learning to extreme. In order to achieve something, go and try it instead of reading a book about it.
Books and people can't teach you how to live — you should follow your own path. Use your creativity to find new ways to achieve the results that you want. And maybe soon you will teach everyone else how to do it the right way.
