“You’re only as good as your last [whatever]” – we’ve all heard this in some shape or form; but I’m going to suggest something slightly different: “You’re only as good as your next [whatever]”. Looking at it this way helps you to realise that once a project is complete you shouldn’t be looking back at it – you should put it to one side and then start looking toward what you are going to do next. Yes, it’s good to celebrate success – but that success will only carry you so far, survival and prosperity are found in the things you have yet to do, and not in the things you have done. It also helps if you create something that doesn’t live up to expectations – you can learn from that and make the next project better.
