On the bulletin board above my desk, I keep a handful of quotes that have taught me something, or that I hope to learn from.

Here's one:

The act of drawing is more important than the drawing.

—Paraphrased from Austin Kleon's interview on the Hurry Slowly podcast

I had to summarize this one after listening to the podcast episode. Kleon was, as I recall, talking about his children's commitment to doing, rather than having done. Once their particular art was complete, it was not all that meaningful to them; the act of making the art was what mattered most.
