Fighting the urge to compare yourself to others and put your work on an imaginary scale is something I am confident a lot of other creators – artists, engineers, programmers, <insert an appropriate profession here> – also struggle with. I have to continually remind myself that I also started somewhere and that there might be a level of proficiency I might not attain for years. That we are all more visible nowadays because of improvements in communication technologies and information flow does not help. There is always some new horizon to reach, there is always some low you have moved past, and this intelligence is available from a few keystrokes, practically at your fingertips. Cultivating patience, compassion and humility in a world like this is work.
