Yes. I feel the exact same towards a lot of things. Specially around stuff that defines art. For example: Writing, Game Making, Drawing, Painting, etc... Seeing someone's progression makes me feel like it's possible to keep getting better at whatever you are doing. That's why I look at so many YouTube videos about making "stuff" (music, painting, etc.) even if I want to be a writer, looking at someone else work is quite heartwarming. The same happens when I read certain Light Novels made by really young authors, and their next work feels better.
... I know this has nothing to do with the actual post. But reading your answer made me want to comment about it. (lol)
