How true. The Act of Creativity is our greatest achievement, its completion a relief, and appreciation by an audience is the reward that reinforces us.

I have always thought myself very fortunate for stumbling into a broad industry where one's efforts become concrete. But I've had many conversations with people doing other work who are similarly moved by the fact that their work has a discrete result. An accountant told me how pleased she was when the books balanced (this was before ubiquitous computers). But recently a building labourer I was giving a lift to took pride in pointing out buildings he had worked on.

Some people are just compulsive builders, the ones who play Civilization or Age of Empires and look at combat as a nuisance diverting focus from building the ultimate megalopolis. ;)

An old client in the Finnish MMORPG industry burnt through 500K € before going belly-up recently. Too much building of the megalopolis, and not enough on profiling and communicating with potential users ;-)
