Creativity Quote: Yesterday’s Home Runs Don’t Win Today’s Matches
Babe Ruth is an inspirational figure, but yet, what he is doing in a creativity column?
Because, the moment I saw this quote from him, I knew it is apt for us creative people even more.
This message tells me to be ready for today. To be as excited about our art and our work as we were yesterday, to visualize all the good things we will create today. To focus on now, rather then the past.To keep ourselves in shape to make new 'Creative Home Runs'
Creative journey is a process of growing. Every new technique that we learn, every new insight that we gain, every mistake that we make adds to our creative growth. Also, the world is changing fast, and yesterday's skill levels may not be good enough for the new scenario.
So, rather than getting satisfied with what we have done, let us keep learning. And keep creating. Let us not sit on the laurels of yesterday. Let us create something new today. We are only as good as our latest creation.
