ooof.
gotta get it right no matter what.
it's a personal thing.
i need to get through it, look at it and know that I feel it is right.
no getting lazy.
no letting things slide.
it's about "I am good with this."

crisped.

Kicking your ass back into the right gear, eh? Here's to the eternal, self-motivated, serialized creativity cycle!
Reminds me a bit of a quote from Norwegian composer Knut Avenstroup Haugen.

(Incoming wall of text. Sorry!)

"People who say they cannot work unless they are inspired are very unprofessional and probably inexperienced, because inspiration comes from hard work -- from getting up early every morning and working hard even though you don't feel like it. If one day doesn't lead to much, the next day will be based upon your experiences from the day before and open up to new possibilities not accessible without having tried everything else first. To miss the target is necessary to adjust your aim so you will eventually be able to hit the bullseye."

...and then maaaaybe mix that with the factory floor motto of one of my father's most common metal processing plant clients: "DO IT RIGHT THE FIRST TIME, EVERY TIME, SAFELY."

Best wishes!

Rarity's song "Art of the Dress" comes to mind.

Yes, it's important to always strive for the best from yourself.
...However, you shouldn't strain yourself too much! But you luckily seem to know that. =)

I know it, but I don't do it. How are you Nurio-san, good friend to the north?
