Work on your personal art
It’s great to work for big studios – you get money, credits and fans. But you’ll need more than this to keep yourself inspired for the long haul. You must continue to produce material that’s of your own creation. Something only you have authority over. This will keep you fired up to keep reaching for more. You can go in any direction you like regardless of what you’re famous for at the moment. You’ll have something to look forward to after each work day. This will keep your spirits up on those down days. And most importantly, you’ll have something no one can ever take away from you.
