You will be reminded more of what you love about what humans are capable of creating.
For the last two weeks, I have been stuck in the project I am doing. My partner was quite mad at me. From his view, I was wasting my time on the pursuit of unnecessary perfection. On the contrary, I am not a workaholic setting up super high standards to accomplish impossible goals. I used to do so but I failed soon without self-discipline. For me, it's just one question in my mind: what would other talented people do for this task?
It's such a simple but super powerful reminder of I am capable of creating more like a competitor of other talented people. No matter what a tiny little detail I am working on, by asking this question, it seems like there are close connections between me and other masterpieces trying to do something in our own life.
What's more, it's a way to break my limitations. Life is so challenging but I have ignored it all the time because staying in the comfort zone is the default pattern. There should be other choices when you hesitate a second and wondering what other talented people are doing.
