To get motivated, we need to awaken the desire for interesting and challenging work and the pleasure in the act of changing the world.
Creating art is one thing that motivates us to beat the challenge and go for another one. The efforts we put behind our creative work is valuable and if it inspires even a single person in the world, we are successful.
It is alright if we create something by using some machines. The pleasure of being in the presence of machines generates a comfort zone around us and we feel a sense of manageability and of controlled world.
